Wedding at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor Filmed by Drone
The aerial highlights of the Indian Hindu Ceremony of Mekhala Sastry & Kunal Khanna. Alhough we have shot many Indian Weddings, this is the first Indian Wedding by drone. We were only planning on using the drone for opening outside shots, but when the groom arrived and having a hundred people around him, I decided to fire up the drone. I ran to my truck, and fired up the quadcopter drone, which allowed us to get great shots which you could only get from up high. I had a unfair advantage on everyone, being able to elevate my camera over everyone. The ground space was very crowded, however, not so with the open air above them. The was a Hindu Ceremony which took place in Inverness Hall at Innisbrook Country Club. The room was large enough to fly the drone during the exit. I am always concerned of being too distractive with the drone, but upon seeing the very positive reactions from the guests as well as the bride and groom, I decided to fly it indoors as well. The get the shots of this Indian Couple as the exited down the runway after the ceremony was priceless. For more of our Indian Weddings see our Indian Wedding Page
We will be posting a full highlight video in a few weeks that will show the ground cameras as well. Buffy and her staff with Life Long Studios did the stills. They were great to work with, some of the best photographers you will find in Tampa Bay. A Hindu Ceremony can be very challenging, with not much room, and the bride and groom moving quite abit during the ceremony. This particular Hindu Ceremony was extra challanging being there were 3 still photographers, 2 videographers operating the cameras for the live feed, and our 2 videographers, which made it very crowded, however everyone was very professional. Having that many photographers and videographers in a tight space can easily have disasterous consequences, but due to the professionalism of everyone involved, there were no issues. I joked with Buffy afterwards, we need T-shirts that say “I survived a Hindu Ceremony”.
