What is the most important camera shot in a wedding video?

The Tracking shot.

Technically, In movies, the tracking shot is a kind of shot where the camera moves, typically towards, or away from a subject or alongside it. This type of shot not only enhances the overall production value of a film, but it actually creates a sort of an emotional connection with the viewer.

There are a few different ways to create tracking shots in weddings.

Here are my top three tools that I use for it:

1. Glidecam, or MOVI M5 Gymbal

2. Drone

3. Slider


Some sequences/shots from these movies were used for illustration and commentary purposes:

The master (2012)

The shining (1980)

Goodfellas (1990)

There will be blood (2007)

The wolf of wall street (2013)

Citizen Kane (1941)
