Top 11 Considerations Filming a Wedding Solo
Shooting solo, your main camera should be equipped with a zoom lens.
Always have at least two cameras - In case one malfunctions or you want to quickly switch to a wide-angle w/ a prime lens.
Always have Variable ND Filters - Many weddings can switch between day/evening, indoors/outdoors.
Use a camera with duel storage such that you can record video simultaneously for back-up
Make sure you are in good physical shape beforehand
Identify a perfect balance between gear functionality and lightweight, make sure you can justify anything heavy. If you can't, leave it in the car.
Try to identify lighting in advance, check flicker before the ceremony, and be prepared to adjust shutter as needed.
Since you're filming solo, it will be even more important to coordinate shots and vantage points with photographers in advance.
Identify a secure place that is easily accessible for charging batteries and storing back-up equipment.
Identify, in advance, the best time for a break, a snack, and hydrate.
Make sure you have enough energy when you arrive home to immediately back-up all raw footage.
