    Hmmm…we didn’t have trouble, but our videgrapher was also pretty stationary. He had two cameras set up on tripods so he could capture different angles, and he couldn’t have moved much anyway because he had to hook into our venue’s sound so the cameras could pick up good quality sound from the mic on our officiant’s lapel and hear the ceremony over ambient noise (our wedding was outside, and there was a fountain that created a lot of noise along with wind and other normal outside noises). 

     

    He did use the zoom and move the cameras on their tripods to do things like follow the bridesmaids as they entered.

     

    I think there are some videographers that are more artsy and try to create film-quality, artistic video with a lot of moving to capture the ceremony from different angles. If you choose a videographer that doesn’t subscribe to that style andyou express your concerns about the camera being intrusive, I think it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Our wedding is pretty close to tampa, its in Anna Maria Island. I would have loved to do something out of the country but none of my siblings or parents have passports. It would have been a lot harder. I’m sure your wedding will be amazing! I would love to go to Thailand!

    If they are professional they should be completely unobtrusive. We hardly noticed our videographers or photographer even being there. Half the time we were thinking “where are they?! Are they even doing their job?” lol

    This is the reason we didn’t get one. Pictures are one thing, but recording people’s conversations/stray comments just seems overbearing.

    It might be a good idea to ask your photographer to recommend a videographer. Our photographer recommended a videographer that he has worked closely with for years. They both mentioned that they anticipate each others moves and work together, but stay out of each others way. The videographer also mentioned that the photographer is in the #1 seat and controls the day.
