Over the years I have gained a collection of lenses that I find fit my style perfectly. When you click onto a website and view all the different lenses that you can buy.. you can get a little lost haha.
I use a Nikon D800 and here’s a little info on the lenses that I shoot with!
My ‘go to’ lens is the 50mm 1.4. I shoot details in bridal prep with it, hair/make up being done, ceremony, bride and groom portraits, smaller groups and room details. The wide aperture works perfectly in darker situations and gorgeous ‘bokeh’ it gives – ummm I love you 50mm.
The 35mm 1.8 is the lens I use for bigger groups and room shots. I also use this lens when ‘surprise’ moments happen and I want to make sure I can fit everything that’s happening in.
The 60mm 2.8 macro is a lens I own.. yet don’t always use. I keep it in my kit as it’s good for detail shots. Rings or a necklace with a sweet engraving, this is the lens I would use.
The 70-200mm is a relatively new lens in my kit but I am SO glad I bought it. I am a prime lens girl and this is the only zoom I use. I don’t mind standing in the back at a ceremony, but there are times that I am made the stand at the back of a church with a huuuuge aisle.. and that’s where the 70-200mm comes in extremely handy. I don’t like being too in the way during a ceremony, so it’s nice to be able to stand away with this lens but still get up close. It’s also good for candids, as no-one can tell you’re there!
