We use professional microphones and external recorders for any situation during the day. This sound is much much better than the camera microphones and will bring a better experience.
We try to avoid placing the mic on a bride, rather, we go for a tie microphone on the officiant or groom for the ceremony. If for some reason we can not wear mic on the groom or officiant we will place boom mic and recorder on a tripod a few meters away from the bride and groom to capture good audio. Also, we set up microphones for the speeches or record the sound from the venue PA system.
If the DJ is running sound, we may be able to plug into their soundboard. Every DJ is different, so it’s no guarantee that we will get good quality sound from their system. That’s why we have a few audio backup recorders.
Please watch the short audio sample below from the different packages we offer.
