The opportunity for live streaming weddings is always growing.

This blog post will help wedding planners/photographers add video to their services and understand how weddings can be live streamed with discreetly placed cameras and remotely operated hardware.

“It’s incredible how many wedding photographers are live streaming weddings today” says Paul Richards, Chief Streaming Officer for PTZOptics and author of the Udemy course “How to live stream Weddings”. “The demand for live streaming weddings, especially destination weddings, has prompted us to create a complete guide and video tutorial course on UDEMY… we already have over 1,000 wedding photographers taking our course today.”

Define the style – Planning for a finished video

Remember that it’s your job to capture your clients single most important day! Don’t stress out, just be prepared, because if you do this right it can be a lot of fun. Live streaming a wedding is quite different from taking pictures. Use the same thought process but think about setting up live streamings cameras that you will switch between during a live broadcast.

  1. Remember that the real magic will happen in post production
  2. The live stream is great, but don’t forget to run a multi-corder to capture all cameras for post-production
