Do you plan to shoot your next wedding ceremony with a drone? More and more photographers are using drones for aerial photos of the couple and their results are amazing. In this guide, we will share the best aerial wedding photography poses for couples.

As a photographer if you are planning to shoot wedding photography with drones, then you need to know what wonders you can create with it. The normal portraits and aerial portraits of couple are completely different.

Let’s take a look into the best aerial wedding photography poses for the couple:

1. The Ceremony

The ring close ups and shiny jewellery shots are very common. However, photographers used to struggle a lot by using camera stands and other tools to capture different angles of the ceremony.

It’s simple with the drone to capture the aerial view of ceremony for the couple. You can also cover the guests, venue and background in the shot.

2. From The Sea

For beach weddings, you may have seen hundreds of wedding photos where the photographer captures the sea in the background or aside the couple. However, when shooting with a drone, you can capture from the other side.

From the Sea

Fly the drone above the sea and capture the couple on the shore or with the city in background. It’ll come out as the photographer is surfing in the sea with the camera and the results will be amazing.

Drones make it easier for you to shoot from any angle and height. However, you still need to know the range of your drone and the camera details for good shots.

3. The Rare and Random Poses

Any photo that you capture for the couple from aerial view is great. In the aerial photos, earth is the background for you that can give great result.
