Maine Drone Wedding Photographer | Maine Drone Wedding Photography
Keeping our wedding photography artistry ever-evolving is something that is very important. Not only to us, but also to our clients. Russ knew there’d be many benefits to becoming a Maine drone wedding photographer in 2017. Accordingly, the first pre-requisite is to obtain FAA Type 107 certification, which he completed in March. Later in the same year, the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), added a new Certified Drone Photographer (CDP) program. While not a necessity, as is the FAA certification, holding a CDP certificate nicely ties in the flight and the photography aspects of the use of camera drones. In late 2017, Russ became the 9th person in the U.S. to obtain the CDP certificate from the PPA.
We use our drone almost exclusively during our artistic set with our bride and groom. The drone isn’t over crowds or people, and are never 100% directly over our couple, even though some of our post-processing methods help make it appear that we are very near to that angle.
In our arsenal of equipment is an identical pro-level drone to serve as backup in the event a technical or software issue would prevent us from flying. We’ve been fortunate that few planned shoots with the drone had to scrapped due to weather, wind, or other regulatory factors.

Use of our drone is included with our standard 2-photographer collections. We’ve got a pretty nicely fine-tuned system in place that makes these shoots run very seamlessly. And without any soiling or damage in any way to neither the bride’s nor the groom’s attire.
