My preferred mic placement


My preferred mic placement for church weddings is:

Wireless on officiant (who does 95% of the talking). I want to be able to monitor and adjust his levels.

Digital recorder (iRiver or H1 w/ lav) on groom to pick up vows.

Zoom H2 on podium/lectern to pick up the readings

Zoom H4 if there are live musicians.

All cameras have 1 channel dedicated to shotgun/built-in mic.

Since I started doing things this way, I have had great audio, fewer post production headaches, and I sleep better at night.
