Pass and go
Couples love to see their guests entertain as a look back on the big day and having fun. Photo Booth's have of course been popular just as instant Polaroid's and Fuji cameras are here to stay. But here are some other ways to use Go Pro. During the reception, place the Go Pro on one of the accessory adjustable poles. You can just simply hit the record button while passing into the next guest explaining that it is recording. Ask that guest to share anything they want with the newlyweds and then pass it on to the next guest. Keep it going by word-of-mouth or have the DJ make a brief announcement. The battery lasts for two hours and combined with a 64 GB memory card, it'll capture all your priceless memories throughout the day.
Wedding Time Lapse
The Go Pro excels and setting up of wedding time-lapses with a unique creative look at the entire day. What is a time-lapse? A time-lapse video is actually a series of photos taken in intervals over an extended period of time. You can set the Go Pro to take a picture every second and that will result in 35,000 images in an hour. The images are then put together sequentially into a video to make short clips. The video shows 30 images progressing with background such as clouds and fluid movement. You can capture your vendors setting up and decorating your ceremony site before you were even there. You can slow the video or speeded up according to your tastes. If you set the camera at a high advantage point such as a balcony, you'll have a bird's eye view of the entire day unfold in just a few minutes. You may have some additional individual shots for your photo album that may have been missed by still photos.
