10 Tips to Shoot a Cinematic Wedding Video – Matti Haapoja and the Panasonic GH4

This is a guest post by Matti Haapoja on his work submitted to the Videolog.
In this article Matti shares behind the scenes insights and tips on how to make a cinematic wedding video and his experience working with the Panasonic GH4.

matti_bIn 2009 Matti Haapoja and his brother made their hobby a profession when they started shooting cinematic wedding video and founded Heart Visuals. The internet was and is their film school, with guidance from a few people along the way.
Matti is a freelance videographer based in Toronto, Canada and is mostly shooting commercials, church videos and weddings.

Introduction

My friend Samuel contacted me to shoot his wedding video in France which was going to be a week of hanging out at a chateau in Normandy with people from all over the world.  I couldn’t pass it up so my wife and I headed to France.

For this cinematic wedding video I wanted to showcase a bit of the chateau and how cool it was but I often think wedding videographers (and sometimes even couples getting married) forget that the film isn’t about the venue, dress, decor etc., but about the people.
Samuel and Hildegunn are a super fun and laid back couple so I wanted to highlight how fun they are and how they are surrounded by all these amazing people they love.

Gear Used

Panasonic GH4I had just switched over from my Canon 5D mark III to the Panasonic GH4 so this was my first real project on the GH4. Here’s what my gear bag consisted of:

I had my Canon 5D III plus Zeiss 50mm 1.4 as a backup just in case something went wrong with the GH4.

10 Tips to Shoot a Cinematic Wedding Video

s_h_3
1. Don’t shoot too much footage
I shot this wedding film just by myself which is challenging but also cuts down a lot of the work time for me in post. When I first started shooting weddings I shot way too much footage. Because we specialise in these 3-5 minute wedding “trailer” videos at Heart Visuals I really didn’t need a ton of footage.

s_h_2

2. Will you use this shot in the video?
But what you do need are the right shots. After some practice now I shoot with much more intention, I’m constantly trying to edit in my head and ask myself the question “would I use this shot or angle in the video?” and if it’s a no then I don’t waste my time shooting it and save time looking through bad clips in post.

s_h_10

3. Be light and fast
My strategy for weddings is usually to be light with gear and make it as easy as possible to switch lenses and stabilisation gear.
I never shoot with a tripod at weddings but the monopod is perfect for getting a static shot and being able to quickly move from shot to shot, angle to angle. I keep the same base plate on the glidecam so I can easily switch back and forth when I need to.
The majority of the film is shot on the Sigma 18-35mm with a handful of shots on the 85mm.

s_h_9

4. Keep it natural
For weddings I try to shoot a cinematic documentary style film avoiding shots that look overly forced or staged. I try to keep it natural and get those candid shots. A cinematic camera like the Panasonic GH4 with a cinematic picture profile and lenses that give me a shallow depth of field will help to get lots of natural, great looking shots. More on that later.

s_h_5

5. Take care of the “must have” shots
There are certain shots that are must have’s for example the kiss. With these shots I try to do a safe angle that I know I’ll get because its just me shooting and there’s no redo’s on moments like those.

Other cinematic wedding video articles talk about attending rehearsals and practicing the shots. I never do rehearsals. I get to the spaces and check out what it’s like, where the light is coming from and then I just go with the flow.

Usually while getting shots of the bride or groom getting ready I will ask what the flow of the ceremony is, cause yea that’s really the only hard parts. Really I just need to know when the kiss comes because I don’t want to be caught off guard.

s_h_11

6. Get creative & beautiful shots
Other than those “must have’s” I’m always trying to experiment with new angles and camera moves to make the film as beautiful as I can. I do this in the “free time” between the must have shots.

s_h_8

7. Getting emotions
I think the biggest secret though is to get the emotions of the people into the film. Weddings are such an emotional time that if you don’t capture the smiles, tears and laughs of both the couple and the guests then I think you’re missing the essence of the day.
People often get camera shy and won’t show their emotions so it’s really important they don’t see you filming them. A little trick I use sometimes is to have the settings and focus set, but point the camera in another direction and then, when I know they are about to react to the speech or situation I quickly get the shot.
That way I get real reactions and not the toned down “there’s a camera in my face” reaction.

s_h_7

8. Practice
Of course all of this takes practice and the more you shoot weddings the more you know exactly where you should be and which shots will be your best shots that you don’t want to miss out on.

s_h_12

9. Pretend you’re a Ninja
For me the most challenging part of the day is the ceremony. Usually you can’t really influence or change the lighting (full sun light in this case) and the challenge is to get all the shots you need without being a huge distraction to the actual ceremony.  Sometimes I see wedding videographers with a huge rig, big matte box and all standing right beside the couple while the ceremony is going on and I think that’s just a bit disrespectful and not smart.
Pretend you’re a Ninja or something if that helps.

s_h_6

10. Gear that works in any light condition
Weddings can be very challenging shooting environments, not only in terms of the event itself, but also in terms of lighting. So it’s a good idea to be prepared and have a camera and lenses that work well in low light conditions. I thought the GH4 was going to be really tough in the evening with low light but actually I think it was just fine. Using the Speedbooster certainly helped to get better lowlight performance and less depth of field. Other cameras like the 5D or Sony A7s also work in your favour in that regard.
Good gear helps, but in the end it’s about your approach: When you’re shooting documentary style there’s always light, you just have to find it!

s_h_4

Do you need a long version?

Our videos are pretty short, sometimes wedding videos go into lots of detail and are much longer. We have done a few of those in the past, but honestly I dont think the couple really needs it unless they are super keen on showing the wedding to some close family in another country who cant make it or something.

I think you should be able to tell the story of the day in a 3-5 minute video pretty easily. I don’t like doing the typical wedding video with the speeches in the background and all that.

So usually we advise the couple to just go with the highlight film. Most couples don’t request it and if they do I try to challenge if they really want it.

Working with the Panasonic GH4

matti_1I was actually amazed at how easy it was to get used to the GH4. I loved the flip out LCD screen, battery life and just how light and small it is. It was perfect for my candid style of shooting. I think the only thing I really miss about the 5D is getting shallow depth of field a bit easier but more so the colour science.

I think that’s where Canon really shines and it becomes really apparent in skin tones. But I would definitely recommend the GH4 as a whole and especially for weddings.

Camera Settings

As a picture profile I tried to use James Miller’s settings which I found here. I’ve been trying just “cinelike D” variations.
I shot the whole film in 4k.

Audio

Other wedding videographers deal with audio a lot. For my cinematic approach I like to work with visuals and music. So I don’t do audio other than a Rode Videomic Pro just in case there’s something that would really work with the audio. But I rarely use the audio.

Backup

For backup I just had a computer along and put the data on the computer and a hard drive.

Post Production

I edited the film in Premiere Pro.
For the colour grade I brought it into After Effects starting out with a Vision Color Impulz LUT and then I dialled it down to my liking.

Final Words

10680007_10153059075206145_3397907679742476830_oMy brother and I always find it a bit funny that at the end of the day the wedding videographers and photographers pretty much spend the most time with the couple out of anyone on their wedding day.
So it’s absolutely important that the couple feels comfortable and relaxed with you.

If you’re causing the couple any unnecessary stress then you’re failing and that will show in the video and photos.

So be cool and talk to your couple especially in the morning to get them relaxed in front of a bunch of cameras but don’t be too big of a distraction especially later on in the day. This way the couple won’t focus on the cameras and that means you’ll get the best documentary style film. Good luck and enjoy shooting!

Nice post.

What about music for your videos? Where do you find it and how much do you spend on it?
Also – what kind of licence is needed for wedding clips that is made just for youtube & vimeo?

Usually we license our music through themusicbed.com or then marmosetmusic.com. Licenses are usually around $50 or so. Great music too!

Nice work buddy! I’m on the same page been shooting weddings since 2002 alone and same deal 3-5 min highlights. I do deliver the ceremony speeches first dance in full as well separately. Nice to have that memory as well. A lot of shooters love the long form I call 9-15min videos but I find them too long so don’t do them. That’s just my opinion. Shooting on the c100 has given me a little more freedom and always have the 5d3 second angle on a ceremony. I’m in Canmore (Banff) let me know if you come out this way.

Ive been in the business for some time now, I live in Indonesia, and the thing is, traditional weddings here (since there are more of them) are all but short, its usual for the ceremony to last 3 days, ranging from rituals, to family meetings, big feasts… but there goes the dilemma, if we dont shoot that much, is it justifiable to just get around 5 minutes for a 3 day event? ive been going on the 15 minute route and was just wondering am i actually giving too much?

Gerbert Floor Reply
Gerbert Floor February 19, 2015

HI, cool post, couldn’t agree more. Im going to shoot my second wedding with the a7s. Before that it was all 5dmk3 or mk2.

A few tips im missing.

Get enough b-roll
Make small sub stories (with wide/medium/close up shots)

If you want to up sell you should consider longer versions as well, people will pay extra.

Also, its definitely cool to experiment more with story, your video was awesome, but I always find that the ones I keep looking is where the bride and groom share something personal.

Great example is http://www.velare.tv

Thanks for the write up, really interesting. I’ve done about 6 weddings at this stage and I’ve a couple lined up over the next few months. Your work set up is really interesting. I currently have two panasonic g6 and I use the 12-35 f2.8 and olympus 25mm f1.8. I tend to do a long form version that has the wedding itself and speeches with highlight footage in between that I make a couple of offline dvd copies, and then I do a highlights video of about 2-5 mins for youtube. That seems to work for me. I would be tempted to go down your route though in the future, just as it would lighten the work load and I could just film by myself.

Thanks! Yea the longer you do weddings the more you start refining not only your product but also what you want to offer your clients. We just found that it made more business sense to just stick with the highlight films and its also just way more enjoyable work I find which translates to better work. Best of luck!

You did a incredible job! extra points to make this by yourself! How this format of short film can shine among other studios ? You and your brother spend money in any kind of advertising in toronto ? Im a wedding photographer looking for to improve my skills as videoagrapher too, thanks for sharing this bts :)

Matti Haapoja Reply
Matti Haapoja February 21, 2015

Thanks so much Rafael! We havent spent a dime advertising other than just having a website like everyone else. I think some of it comes down to your skill/product but a lot of it is also just caring about your clients and treating them like people. Word of mouth is a big deal especially for weddings since there are tons of guests at the wedding, some who end up meeting you, some or all see your final product and hopefully the couple themselves will be so pleased with you as a person and your work that they recommend you to everyone they know getting married. hope that helps a bit!

Flat out awful that you don’t put sound in there and it’s troubling this gets published as an educational article.

Anyone “believing” sound isn’t important just WANTS TO HEAR THAT because it’s EASIER. Not better, not practical, but just flat out easier and it gives some people a fake excuse to slack off.

It looks RIDICULOUS seeing people give a toast and no words come out.

Reply
chris February 20, 2015

have to agree. visuals are only half the story. well, you don’t get a story without the visuals.

Gary Hanna Reply
Gary Hanna February 20, 2015

It’s not a story, it’s a template without the audio. Every wedding has the groom adjust his bow tie, every wedding has a bride and the gown, every wedding has a first look, processional. Every wedding has dancing shots and shots of the couple entering. Every wedding has toasts.

There’s only one family the father of the bride’s story about his daughter belongs to, no other weddings. There’s only one story about how they met and how they proposed that no other wedding has. There’s only one couple who has an Aunt Sara that helped set up the surprise proposal and told a toast about it. And one day, they’ll pass away, and no one will know what those stories are, that only that couple shares, and no one will know what those people sounded like when their deceased.

Not having sound in a wedding is like if McDonalds just automatically gave everyone a medium fries, a burger, and a pepsi and say, “oh we don’t do the we take your oder thing”.

Aydin Odyakmaz February 20, 2015

Gary, its a Highlight! The vows, speeches etc are all recorded and delivered to the couple in my packages. Its all they want. They don’t want the words in their highlight.

So again each client is different and not everyone wants Dad in their highlight sardine his words . They have that in the Doc edit.

Just want to clarify that I am a completely unbiased reviewer here… I watched your video Eduardo, and even without sound, your video was much less interesting to me than Matti’s. Granted, would Matti’s video be better with some audio and story development? Yes. But his framing, moment capturing and editing delivered a much better overall film (in my opinion) than yours.

Eduardo Duran Reply
Eduardo Duran February 20, 2015

Gary i completely agree. Here is a highlight i did and probably spent about 3 hours on adding sound design. https://vimeo.com/117707867

Sebastian Wöber February 20, 2015

Hi Gary, I disagree. And the amount of fame this video gets also doesn’t support your judgement. This video worked beautifully without sound and it proves how great a wedding video can be that doesn’t rely on sound.
Also in terms of “educational” I believe this piece is situated perfectly. Its aim is to be a cinematic video, and putting in a “story” by having people talk is one of the lesser cinematic things you can do.
This video tells a story in a beautiful way, anything on top would have spoiled it for me, certainly people I don’t know talking about things that are relevant for them, but irrelevant for me.
Anyway, your comment seemed pretty harsh and disrespectful. If you have something to prove please show us your convincing wedding video.

Gary Hanna Reply
Gary Hanna February 20, 2015

It’s not for you sebastian it’s for the couple, their vows mean something to them. and Audio is supposed to COMPLIMENT the story.

Let’s not get over your head comparing this to Hitchcock quotes. There isn’t a story here, it just the best shots assembled in order. And it’s incomprehensible and jarring to see toasters mouths moving without anything coming out – what am I supposed to glean out of that overly long montage of toasts.

It would be BETTER with audio, even just applause and laughter – you know things that show EMOTION…which is really what a “story” is meant to deliver as its main job, not tell what happened in a sequence.

Matti Haapoja Reply
Matti Haapoja February 20, 2015

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I would respectfully disagree. Nobody ever says that a music video has to have sound yet many of them have a strong story. I completely agree that the wedding day is about the couple and they knew my style of wedding highlight and they chose to fly me from Canada to France for it. Because they liked my style of wedding highlight. I think anyone who knows the couple would agree its a great representation of them. I cant remember how many completely strangers have told me they have cried watching it. In my books thats a successful wedding highlight video.

James H February 21, 2015

I think this was a great video. Every videographer has their style and this is the one that appealed most to this couple. While I agree completely and wholeheartedly with some of the comments that real live audio would have made this video complete, that’s just one persons opinion. On its own this video is still very well done and leaves you feeling happy. I don’t think it’s always necessary to have a part of a toast or even actual words but just laughter and cheers from when they kissed or when everyone was laughing or saying cheers would have brought a new level of emotion to what already is a very good video. I’ll bet if you tried both ways and showed a room of 100 people including the couple, the one with a touch of real audio no matter how subtle would be chosen 95 times out of a 100. But the thing is, we can all agree or disagree, and no one is right. What’s right is what’s right for the couple! And they obviously did right by them. Congrats to you guys on that!

Regarding no audio at all for even a full video edit…I would argue that forward thinking would lead many to the realization that having at the very least the vows and toasts as part of a full video edit is essential. Think about your parents and if you had the opportunity to watch their video…wouldn’t you want to see that? We often shoot so much for “right now” that we forget that 20 years from now this couple is gonna have kids and those kids would love to see and hear mommy and daddy talk and interact when they were young. I know I did. But in the world of ever shortening attention spans, a shorter highlight video is absolutely essential. Many videographers keep their highlight videos as music only and many of them do really well as was the case above. The beautiful visuals here would only be complimented by even subtle implementation of real audio in my opinion. But that’s just me. And who am I anyway! HA! Audio is a pain the a$$ and sometimes I wish we could just ignore it too. But that’s not our particular style. We’ve been doing this same business now for 8 years and I’ve seen so many amazingly talented videographers. And it’s okay to be different! But I’ve always favored great editing over great shooting. Our editing style is vastly different from others and once we embraced being different our business took off well into the 6 figure range. I admire the more candid approach to this video. I think that keeping it real is possibly more challenging but when executed effectively as it was in this video, it makes it more fun to watch. And yes, I’ve seen guys who are more “cinematic” and choreographed and yes its visually stunning…but I just prefer reality.

It’s always fascinating to see the tools people use. We used the GH4 for a while and it was a really awesome camera with some stunning results. As a wedding videographer, I know photographers and their tools really well but almost never run into other videographers (obviously). I’m familiar with their work, but not their workflow. Beyond what photographers tell me anyway. I couldn’t agree more with the statement about being at ease in the presence of the couple. That rubs off on everyone. Also, being able to be a ninja is also ESSENTIAL. Sometimes I hear stories of other videographers being all up in the faces of people even during the Ceremony and I wonder if they ever heard of such a thing as a zoom lens. But we all have different tools I guess. Sometimes I watch photographers leave with their one backpack and laugh at how blindingly easy they have it. But that’s the joy of doing this. Wedding videos are a far more complete reflection of a couples wedding than a single photo ever could be. This couple above will always have their photos, and no doubt a few of those are priceless, but they’ll remember their wedding through this video. The importance of that is what keeps us pushing forward. Keep up the good work guys and congrats to the couple in this video for what looked like an awesome wedding in France!

Matti Haapoja Reply
Matti Haapoja February 20, 2015

Its really easy actually. I use to use a plug in from Red Giant but realized with 4k footage its brings weird aliasing so I just used a black solid on top and bottom and put it over the footage in After Effects. You could also use this guys psd for the crop: http://whoismatt.com/cinemascopetutorial/

Do you record everything internally on the gh4? Or do you use some type of external recorder? How does that affect your coloring in post?

Matti Haapoja Reply
Matti Haapoja February 21, 2015

Right now internally. I was planning on getting the Shogun recorder but honestly I havent been too impressed with it yet. I have a feeling it might be more of a hindrance while shooting just cause its pretty bulky. Plus it over doubles your price point. Better to just with a C100 or something at that point. Colouring is definitely a bit tricky still. Especially with skin tones. You start missing canons colour science pretty quick. But every camera has its negatives.

Thanks for the useful advice.

I still haven’t seen the video but I got worried when I read that not much attention was paid to the audio. I am thinking of the expression on the bride’s face after she finds out that their vows were not professionally “audio taped”!

Nothing beats sound properly recorded on the day. Background music only complements it.

Roberto Garces February 22, 2015

OK, I’ve seen the video. Nice one, but you can tell that, for a wedding video, sound is lacking. But hey, if the client is happy, then you are happy too.

Steve February 22, 2015

what a lovely and well shot video – the gh4 looks great and your moves are useful and tasteful.

But for the record, that is a ridiculously good looking couple surrounded by a ridiculously good looking bridal party getting married in a ridiculously good looking chateau in a ridiculously good looking forest…and this ridiculously good looking wedding is attended by ridiculously good looking people – those 2 blonde flower girls look straight out a catalog. It would be pretty hard to make this event look bad. LOL!

99% of all weddings do not look this good from the get-go. I do agree that some audio would have been awesome – crowd noise on the church exit, couple lines from the toast, etc. It really does (at points) look like a really well cast/well location scouted music video.

Hello there! Great write up and great looking video. My question is this: How do you convince people that they don’t need the old school long form wedding video? That’s the hard part for me…they just want the whole thing…

Also, approximately what do you charge for something like this? It’s always a question everyone wants to know the answer to. Just curious. Thanks in advance!!

Audio or no audio, I think this wedding video is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! maybe I’m biased because it’s my wedding last month. http://my.thewhitetree.com.au/film/NTQ5
What I liked is their beautiful panning, the way every shot looks like a glossy high end magazine and the right sound of capturing the people VS the details on the day.

So as a hobby I took some footage on my iPhone of a holiday in Mexico and used the app iMovie to easily put it together. I showed the resort owner and he said it was better than a professional he paid $3k to do and he had professional equipment. Any how, a friend seen it and now wants me to film thier wedding and be a guest at the same time. I only have my iPhone and a digital videocamera as equipment. Gulp! Bit nervous how to make this work. Any suggestions? Also here are some supplementary questions
– I have the Adobe suite programs on my Mac
– how do you record audio clearly from the ceremony without all the background noise and wind?
– how do I pan and follow the wedding party without the camera shaking when I’m moving?
– how am I meant to be invisible when I don’t have zoom lenses on a videocamera- footage gets worse when you zoom internally?
