Oheka South Asian Wedding

Aarti and Sarin’s South Asian wedding at Oheka Castle was one we will not easily forget. We got the opportunity to work with our friend, the wonderful Susan Stripling, and admired the impecable job Lindsay Landman did with the decor and planning the entire event.

Aarti and Sarin were just so easy and fun to work with. They completely trusted our vision and allowed us to do what we do best. We carefully filmed every moment to capture the pure emotion of the day, starting with the bride’s getting ready and finishing with the spectacular fire works show at the end of the night.

South Asian Weddings are probably some of the hardest to film with many things happening at once. With everything being right on schedule thanks to Lindsay Landman, we were able to plan our timing and have some fun with DJI Quadcopter. We were able to capture the approaching groom on a horse and his Baraat.
Both families were very friendly and warm. The speech done by the bride’s father was one of the more emotional ones we have heard especially the tender moment when he said “My Angel is getting ready to fly” bringing Sarin to tears.

Central Park Shakespeare Garden Wedding

Meet Rachel and Spenser who got married in Central Park at the Shakespeare Garden. A truly amazing, happy and such a pleasure to be around couple. I first contacted by Spenser’s mom a couple of weeks before the actual wedding ceremony. She called and with her splendid North Carolina accent explained that she was looking for someone to cover the couple’s ceremony. They were traveling in from North Carolina and wanted to get married in Central Park. It was to be just a quick one person shoot for a few hours. Having been used to covering all weddings with a team of 2 other shooters, I was excited about the idea of having to film on my own. This allowed for more intimacy between me and the couple. They were able to relax more having been surrounded by just a few people while getting ready and it gave me a chance to get to know them better.

I decided to begin the film with some aerial NYC skyline shots and setting the scene for the lovely ceremony.

Aerial Wedding Cinematography

We are always looking for different ways to revamp our work and to improve the end product for our couples. We have added aerial cinematography to our gadget list. Aerial cinematography provides a very cinematic look in your wedding film.

We have always wanted a new perspective in our films, flying a Quadcopter, allows us to go up high to get an aerial view of either the ceremony sight, the reception location, in a way that was not possible before.

Aerial Cinematography is included in some of our packages and here are a few things to consider:
– We cannot fly in rain or snow as well as very windy conditions.
– The final decision of whether it is safe to fly will be made by the cinema director the day of the wedding.
– The timeline for your wedding day might need to be adjusted to give sufficient time to film with the Quadcopter.
– We do not fly inside venues.

Enjoy this short compilation featuring some places we worked at recently and the aerial footage we came away with.
