My first wedding portrait film. (5D Mark 3)

I've never shot anything wedding related before so this is all new to me. This is an engagement film I did for a couple and I had a lot of fun capturing their story.

I'll be shooting their ceremony in two weeks.

Re: My first wedding portrait film. (5D Mark 3)

I actually watched it in Vimeo when I searched for 5D mark3.
I think you did pretty good with images I just did not like the audio which kept me from loosing interest to what they are saying.
I am sure they and whom ever relate to them will not have the same problem I have since they care to listen.
I would say for next time make sure you at list have a microphone on the guy.
Otherwise you did very good.

Re: My first wedding portrait film. (5D Mark 3)

Thank you.

It has occurred to me that the audio is not perfect. I recorded the interview with a Tascam DR-40 (similar to Zoom H4N) pointed at them with the built in XY mics.

The acoustics of the room did not help. He also speaks really softly and then suddenly he'll laugh and shake the room, so there was a huge dynamic range in his speech that was hard to capture. If I set the level to not clip when he laughs, then the regular speaking part becomes super soft. When I raise this regular speaking portion in post, there was a lot of noise that I tried to get rid of in Audacity but could not reduce.

I'm thinking maybe next time I'll try having a pair of shotgun mics on booms overhead and pointed down, one at each of them, but maybe this will be too much work. Even as it was, with lights and cameras, it took me forever to set up and they were starting to get bored.

Or maybe start investing in good wireless lavs as you suggested. Thanks for the comment.

I think shotguns set up will be allot of work.
You will be surprise how good of results you can get out of zoom H1 and a radio shack Lav.

Dror,

I ended up using zoom H1s with Audio Technica lavs. It turned out pretty well! Good suggestion.

This is the ceremony film:
