Gorgeous Drone Wedding Photography By Helene Havard

So many photographers are using technology, such as drones, to expand the creativity of their art. Wedding photographer Helene Havard, based in Papeete on the main island of Tahiti, took some spectacular shots with the help of drone operator Flying World Pictures.

Havard first posted these drone wedding photos on Bored Panda and they are nothing like we have ever seen so we had to show you!

Helen wrote on Bored Panda: 

"To get the possibility to fly above some places and catch the beauty of the vastness has been a huge way to express freedom to me."

Havard explains on her website that the best time to do a shoot is in the morning if couples are looking for pure blue hues in their photos. 

Helene Havard was named by Rangefinder Magazine as one of 30 rising stars in wedding photography. To see more of her work, visit her website at www.helenehavard.com
