3 Simple Tips to Getting a Custom Wedding Video with a DIY Budget

3 Simple Tips to Getting a Custom Wedding Video with a DIY Budget

Vanessa's first step in customizing her video was to have friends and family capture clips on both their iPhones and the rented Storymix HD cameras. She also used our guest uploads option to include clips that guests shot on other cameras and phones - right through their computers. Next, she used our storyboard to direct a cinema-style multicam effect using the same scene shot at various angles on the individual phones and cameras. Lastly, to truly add to her customization - she had us create a special Mix and Match theme - using the font from one theme, music from another, and graphics from a third.

"The most important details to us to capture on video were of the unveiling...bride & groom meeting, the ceremony, important dances, and our niece singing. We didn't think we could afford video. We were going to rely on the little bit that some family members would take. A friend recommended Storymix and we chose them because of the affordability and the notion that we could have various people with cameras catching things simultaneously or at different angles. We also loved the option to take one camera on the honeymoon." - Vanessa
