Nothing wrong with helping a


Nothing wrong with helping a friend (and gaining some experience) IMO.  


Couple of tips:

– If you can, mic the officiant to get close audio of everything said during the ceremony.

– If you can, get a feed from the dj booth and record just audio for speeches. then you can match it with your video in post

– you can get inexpensive lights on amazon to mount to your camera for the reception/darker scenes if it is a night wedding 

– If possible (and you have 2 cameras and only 1 person), setup one camera as a wide shot during the ceremony and one camera for closeups that you move around (that way you can cut to the wide shot if needed to smooth between camera moves).

– get as much footage as possible, make sure you have multiple batteries (bring a charger and have them charging during the event).  The more you have, the more you have to work with in your final edit!


Good luck!
