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