When to Use Drone Photography for Weddings

While Muñoz Photography generally stays away from wedding photography trends and boasts a style known around the world for its beautiful blend of classic portraiture and contemporary edge, when it comes to drones, we are all in! Drones have changed the game with wedding photography and videography, allowing us to get even more innovative with how we choose to document our clients' big days. And, we’ve found that the use of drones hasn’t taken away from our unique and award-winning style, either.

We are very deliberate with how – and where we fly our drones. First, it’s only worthwhile if our clients’ wedding venue is impressive from an aerial view. We love nothing more than showcasing an incredible resort or event space on its own and also with the addition of the bride and groom in the frame. Whether from a 45-degree angle or from directly above, photographing a couple’s first look and/or the impeccably decorated ceremony area can be striking with the right light and of course, detailed posing and directing of the bride and/or groom when appropriate for the photo.

We’re strategic and well-practiced with launching and landing our drones too. If you’re a wedding photographer who wishes to take drone shots, it’s downright vital that you master your model. You must put in the time to feel comfortable and confident with it. The last thing you’d want is to land a drone on the head of a wedding guest (we’ve heard horror stories!). You also want to be discreet with flying a drone on a wedding day to not disturb the bridal party or wedding guests. 

If you’re a bride or groom who is into all things photography and you’ve seen some drone shots that you love, chances are – we can recreate those shots with our own style. And while you will likely always catch us with our drone in tow when we photograph a wedding in South Florida, we will gladly fly with our drones too (on an airplane, that is). To date, we’ve taken drone photography all over Florida and in Southeast Asia, Costa Rica, Peru, and the Bahamas too.
