Consider Safety First
Before hiring anyone to take drone photos on your wedding day, you need to ensure that the drone operator is professionally and properly trained to operate the drone.

Drone operators, like any other wedding vendor, should have personal property and liability insurance for a commercial unmanned aerial vehicle. Insurance is important in case something or someone gets hit or injured by the drone. This way the operator is covered and the damaged object will be repaired.
