What is Candid wedding videography style?
The candid wedding videography is also named Documentary wedding videography style.
Quite similar to natural and candid wedding photography, the candid wedding video style is aimed to create a relaxed atmosphere and couples will get less directions from the videographer.
It is not a surprise that most of the bride and groom in Melbourne told me they want an unposed candid wedding video that captures their authentic moments.
As the candid style video doesn’t require too much directions from the videographer, this unique style also allows couples to chill and have more social time with their guests.
How do you shoot a candid wedding video style on the wedding day?
To approach the candid wedding video style, we observed the wedding with an artist’s eyes and captured the wedding from a flattered angle. The couple want to see the beautiful and real reactions from the bridal party and their guests, the smiles, the tears of happiness as well as the romantic eye connections between the bride and groom.
During the wedding shoot, a candid videographer will try not to interrupt the wedding and give minimum directions to the couples. For a walking shot of the bridal party, the wedding cinematographer will find a clean and nice looking background with good lighting and then the bride and groom can hold hands and walk together and have fun with bridal party.
The true feelings always reveal the genuine emotions, we will have some small talks to let bridal party get used to the videographer and allow people to being themselves.
We always keep a comfortable distance with bride and groom, the wedding video footage reveals the truly connection between bride and groom.
To make rich content of the wedding videos, we not only focus on people, we also want to reveal the original wedding vibe. We captured the beautiful landscape, some fine details, like wedding signage, gifts and of course the tasty wines.
The color filter we use for a candid wedding video is also different from others. We keep fresh color and light hue and slightly lower the contrast and saturation to make the wedding video airy and light.
What music to choose for a candid wedding video?
A soft and romantic music fit withs the natural wedding highlight video. The slow tempo of country or indie wedding songs can gently bring out the beginning of your wedding story, happy and loving mood wedding music can be used from the ceremony to reception.
Some country style or indie music would be a good idea.

What is storytelling wedding video style in Melbourne?
Like the words, “storytelling” wedding video tells the couple a love story, a wedding movie. Couples are not only seeing the moving imagery; they can also hear what they said in the wedding ceremony vows as well as bridal party’s speech during the wedding reception.
How do wedding videographers create a storytelling style of wedding video?
On the wedding day, the wedding videographer will try to capture as much as possible fine details of the wedding. Like Mother of bride put the veil on the bride, groomsmen helping each other pinning the pocket flower on suits. Father holding bride’s hand for a while when the wedding car is arriving in front of the church, all those precious moments are worth to capture and be featured later on the wedding highlight video.
The wedding videographers will take care of every little details. By picking out the good moments, enhancing the clear and crispy sounds captured from the ceremony and reception, all these details will complement with the splendid the wedding film.
What music to choose for a storytelling wedding video?
Unlike most of the candid wedding video which often use songs with lyrics. We suggest our brides to choose instrumental music (acoustic guitar, violin, cello or piano). Because we use the voice over through the wedding, the instrumental music work better with people’s speeches seamlessly.
If you do like to use certain wedding songs with singers’ vocal for your wedding video highlight, you can search for the instrumental version. The Pianoguys have amazing piano and violin cover music’s for most of the popular songs.

Uplifting, modern, fun and dramatic, all of words can be described as the cinematic wedding style. Unlike the candid and storytelling wedding video style, it is the unconventional way to showcase your wedding style and your personalities.

For couples who get married in the metropolis having lavish wedding with hundreds of guests, I would also recommend modern and cinematic style.
How does wedding videographer shoot on the wedding day?
The wedding videographers give bride and groom more professional directions to create a high fashion-styled wedding video. It is a unique and creative way to make an editorial wedding film. It is like making a wedding movie trailer.
To achieve the cinematic look and feels, the wedding filmmaker will use slow motions (50-100 p) and aerial drone shot footage to capture the beautiful landscape and magnificent Cathedral church on your wedding day.
Some wedding couples have some modelling experience or working in a fashion or design industry will be even a plus as they are already familiar with many posing.
