Here's a great idea for a new option to add to your packages, ofcourse with the addition of a 3 axis stabilizer, that's how we separate the amateurs from the pro's.

Re: New trend

What a great idea! not sure how you'd mount a stabilised gopro onto a dog's back though. That constant side-to-side movement makes me feel a bit queasy.

Something like this I've seen before but they're not stabilised

Re: New trend

Or mount such a camera where you can scroll around yourself in a youtube player! Now just to find a right dog, maybe a border collie? it could also act as master of ceremony, you know, to keep the family together while they walk into the church.

...erm my border collie would hate it - you should have seen her trying to remove a cone of shame she once had on :)

Re: New trend

There was a video a while back (along with a DIY tutorial) of a GoPro built into the Maid of Honour's bouquet ...As far as I remember there was some unique footage that none of us could ever hope to get!

The options for unique filming are endless if you have a vivid imagination ... a bunch of helium balloons with a GoPro underneath in the Church would get you an amazing overhead shot and completely silent too! I wonder what other innovative ideas people have come up with. A friend of mine (in the UK actually) had their trained owl fly down from the rafters of the Church to deliver the rings ..whether he had an owl cam or not is unknown but it would be a little scary if he had simply flown off into the woods!!

Re: New trend

That dog needs some stabilisation :-)


or maybe get a loan of a bird from the local pigeon fancier club and you could do fly pasts to beat any drone!

Like when she is off to the toilet? :) Regarding that owl delivering the rings, I had that last year at a wedding but they had an eagle instead.

Reminds me of David Letterman's "Monkey Cam" clips.

I'd like to strap a go pro on the heads of the bride and groom for the ultimate wedding video.

Re: New trend

ally why bother to hire a videographer when the bride has it all neatly wrapped up but sadly she's never the star of the wedding
