  • HELP! Wedding Planning

    Everyone

    i need a bit of advice , i have been asked to do a wedding shoot in a months time and need some advice on the best lenses to take to the shoot i know there are a few wedding photographers on this forum.

    i feel the lenses i have are not up to doing wedding photography

    can you suggest what two or one lense i would be best to hire for the upcoming shoot i though maybe either of the

    12-60, 18-180 or 14-54

    all advice welcome

    Well, the lenses I'd suggest you hire for the wedding are the Oly 35-100mm f2, or the Oly 50-200 f2.8-f4.

      This is an odd suggestion, but how about hiring another E30 so you have two identical bodies: One with a good wide zoom, one with a good long zoom.

      You can swap one to the other in moments. Time, as you know, is of the essence and not swapping lenses is a good idea.

      What about flash?

        We will have other cameras on site two nikon d300s with prime lenses (my wifes cameras)

        so will have enough coverage

        i could even use an old e300 with a lens hired that i have as a 2nd body?

        maybe i will go with the 50-200 on the e30 and 12-60 on the e300?

          Re: Wedding Planning

          I'm doing my second wedding in July, and after a lot of research and help from fellow forum members, have decided to go with the 35-100mm and the 14-35mm lenses from the hire service on this forum.

          I did the last one with the 40-150 and 14-42 kit lenses and the bride and groom were absolutely delighted with the shots, but I know how much I struggled with the overcast lighting, so I'm leaving nothing to chance!

          I'll be taking the kit lenses with me, just in case, and I've also taken the precaution of buying a second camera as a backup. That was a GOOD move! Doing a recent shoot for the band, it was amazing the difference it made not having to swap lenses.
