Overview

Do-it-yourself wedding photography and videography is not only a great way to save money, it's also a fresh way to capture your special occasion from start to finish with a uniquely personal creative vision. Written to help the bride, groom, and their DIY documentarian navigate the world of wedding photography and videography, DIY WEDDING PHOTO AND VIDEO: PROFESSIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE AMATEUR DOCUMENTARIAN is your step-by-step guide to shooting, editing, and delivering a finished photo/video wedding package on a DIY budget and with exceptional results. Working with a DIY documentarian—a friend with photo and/or video skills and equipment—provides many advantages for the wedding couple: • DIY delivers a customized end result—one that's not locked into the package deals and old working habits of wedding-industry pros. • Going DIY means you're working with a friend, making for a more relaxed, low-key working relationship on the big day. • The DIY documentarian can capture more interesting and personal photos and footage, spanning a longer period of time, than the typical hired photographer. Whether you're the bride, the groom, or the documentarian, DIY Wedding Photo and Video will help you through the many large and small details of wedding photography and videography, from planning through post production, including specifics like building a shot list and coming to agreement on costs, equipment, and expectations. Also included are many wedding-tested tips for DIYers. Specific "DIY Idea" sections in each chapter offer creative ideas for techniques and shots that will give your wedding photos and video that special, personal touch.
