BEST ALL-AROUND LENSES YOU CAN USE FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
There are two main factors which can make or break your wedding pictures – your skills and your lenses. There is no doubt highly experienced professional photographers can create beautiful images with any lens they have. There are not many truly gifted professionals out there, so we all must have reliable and accurate tools so shooting an amazing wedding is not so hard. The wedding day is very dynamic and there is no time to change lenses and practice. So to not waste time, what are the all-around lenses you can install and use in any condition?
Choosing between Canon and Nikon has been a battle for many years. Both brands are well established and they offer a wide variety of cameras and lenses. We, at Book A Wedding Photographer do not believe there is better brand. It is what suits you the most. The lenses you will need to choose will depend on what camera you have. Canon lens suits Canon camera bodies and same with Nikon.
THE OTHER BRANDS vs. THE BIG DOGS
Depending on your budget you can find amazing bodies and lens configurations from Sony, Fujifilm and Pentax. As for lenses you have other brands like Sigma, Tamron and Samyang.
24-70 mm and 70-200 mm – which ones
If you are working on a budget or you are just starting out, Book A Wedding Photographer recommend starting with 2 lenses which can cover everything on the wedding day – 24-70 mm and 70-200 mm f/2.8 lenses. These two lenses will be enough to handle all conditions, type of images you want and will give you the speed and accuracy every moment during the wedding day.
CHEAPEST OPTIONS- ARE THEY WORTH IT?
There are many cheap alternatives on the market and many top brands with cheap lenses. We do not recommend going to a professional event with cheap equipment. You will learn the hard way, cheap will always cost you more. We suggest you save enough money and buy proven and established brands and lenses, instead of risking and ruin someone`s wedding memories.
