Three bits of advice:
1. Here’s a problem I’ve encountered at weddings – Photographers.
If one sets up right where you’ve got the video camera, you’ll be picking up
their camera noise and clicks as they go about their business.
Try to get as far away from them as possible especially if you use the camera mike.
2. Invest in a wireless system so you can mike the groom and get good audio.
3. Lighting at the reception/dance is a usually a problem.
Either bring your own lighting, turn up the house lighting or explain to the bride why
the video might be dark when the lights aren’t on.
Note – since this is a friend and this is your first wedding, I’d do it for free.
You can then use this as a basis for getting other business.
