Aerial footage- the ultimate wedding intro?

As we look to tell the beautiful story of the wedding day of our brides and grooms, I am constantly looking for new and creative ways to capture them.

Several years ago, I began shooting aerial video exteriors of some of Sacramento's most popular wedding locations. I will never forget my first flight, in a Cessna one prop plane. The flight was so rocky, that I became airsick, and ended up with little useable video footage. I later learned that only 3 of the 4 engine cylinders were firing- throwing the entire plane out of balance! I have since rented helecopters to capture these beautiful shots.

In my last sortie, I invited the multi-talented Doug Levine- owner of Music-on-the-Move DJ's & MC's (the good-looking one on the left) to shoot stills of the locations while I shot video. The video was shot in beautiful High Definition16x9 widescreen with the camera mounted between twin gyros to smooth out the turbulence. We had a great time, and we ended up shooting about a dozen wedding sites including the Hyatt (Shown below). We offer these images and video to our brides as a stunning wedding introduction to their DVD's.

A few years ago one of our brides actually hired us to shoot from a helicopter during and after her ceremony . We ended up with some fabulous footage we actually presented to the guests at the reception as part of a same-day-edit! (click here to view the video). Since that shoot at the Sun City Lincoln Hills Country Club, the cost of airtime has risen dramatically, so I am now developing a Radio Controlled aircraft for our brides and grooms to capture those beautiful aerial shots. More to come...
