Here are some things to consider. If you’re having a modest wedding and not looking for anything more than a few shots, then you may be able to find a guy that can do both. But make sure the operator or “drone pilot” you choose actually knows how to take real wedding photos, as well as being able to fly a drone. These are totally separate skills. Also adding aerial video on your wedding day can cause logistical complications if it’s a big wedding. That’s because to do it safely, it’s going to take two people to operate the drone, especially if you’re looking for shots that include the congregation below. And since nobody can be in two places at the same time, this means that the while time the drone is flying around, nobody is taking professional photos. Drone shots take time to set up and every shot has to be pre-panned. And as is the case with regular wedding photography, this might require herding your guests like cattle in order to get that special shot. So as you can see, you may need as many as 3 photographers if you want to cover all your bases.
