Our crew location must be at nearest to the venue, within minimal walking distance is the preferred solution, unless a private 24 hours personal driver can be provided. We have lots of expensive gears to carry, and for destination wedding it is always best to cut down on the risks such as gear malfunction, broken gears, missing gears, car breakdown, crew fatigue, event mishaps, and miscommunication and etc.
The shooting crew may also need to travel to and from the couple’s venue, as shooting takes place over several days. Having a place that is closer would allow us to have greater flexibility in our shooting schedule and give us more space to arrange different shots, for example if a planned timelapse shot has to be canceled due to bad weather, we can easily re-plan to take the shot at a later time if we can easily access the venue. The same goes for conducting interviews, where we can keep in close contact with the interviewees.
