If you are looking for something different or a unique way to capture the memories from your special day, then you might want to consider going airborne as in Aerial Photography or Videography. Better yet, why not both? We offer this feature to be added to any package for our Orange County Wedding Aerial  Photography Package, our Los Angeles Wedding Aerial Photography Package or our Other Southern California Wedding Venue locations.

Three16 Photography has drones available for getting those perspectives that cannot be seen from the ground. Drones capture additional beauty by showcasing the surrounding landscape and architecture. The whole wedding party can also be seen in a well-executed aerial shot.

Before choosing to use a drone for your wedding, be sure to take these four points into consideration:

Verify if your wedding venue will require a permit or not. Some venues may require it, while others do not. Plan ahead in the event you need a permit. Find out if the city your wedding is taking place in will even allow for drones over private property. Also, national parks will never allow for a drone. Public parks or beaches will need to be verified by the city in which they are located in. Also, if you are getting a permit, be sure you allow yourself enough time to apply, pay and receive the permit prior to the wedding day.

Check out the wedding venue before investing in aerial photography or videography as not every venue is considered drone-friendly.

Drones are not quiet. If you use a drone be sure you understand they can be noisy and disruptive. Weigh the pros and cons of drone noise versus amazing angles for your images and videos.

Drone are not adaptable to bad weather. Keep in mind, drones are electronic and are not waterproof. Therefore, if you get rain the day of your wedding, you better check ahead of time if you will get refunded or not. Bad weather also includes windy days. Winds will blow around and potentially crash your camera-equipped drones. Verify who is responsible for the damage prior to the agreement to use a drone.

Aerial photography and videography can truly enhance your photo albums and wedding video with a whole unique perspective of your wedding. All our drones are flown by our team of professionals.
