Wedding Photography Lenses to consider for a complete wedding shoot

In order to deliver a complete wedding photography service, you’re going to need lenses that allow you to capture each of the aspects of every type of photography with artistry and creativity. In a perfect world, we’d have the finances and manpower to haul every available lens to the venue; but in reality, we’re limited to a handful of accessible, high-quality, and versatile lenses. Lenses have already appeared whose image quality would have been marginal or unacceptable in the film era, but are acceptable in the digital era because the cameras for which they are intended automatically correct their defects. Here we’ll speak about some of our favorite lenses which are required for a perfect wedding photography session.

1. 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens: It creates a beautiful bokeh (blur) at f2.8, and the compression you get when you’re zoomed in from 150-200mm gives your image a look that’s hard to achieve with any other lens. It also allows you to get in close on the moment without disrupting the moment. It also allows you to capture candids, from the tears at a wedding ceremony to the laughs at a wedding reception.

2. 50mm f/1.2 Lens: It can save the day when the light starts to drop and allow you to bring out the backgrounds. It also, makes you less reliant on your flash, creating a softer, more natural look for your subjects, as illustrated in the following outdoor dance floor picture. The 50mm also allows you to create stunning portraits, as the low aperture creates the shallow depth of field that makes your subject pop off the page and softens your subject’s skin.

3. 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens: This is a critical lens for smaller spaces. For example, a mahendi ceremony in an Indian wedding is commonly held in a living room. The 70-200 would be too close for this situation, and the 50mm would not provide enough versatility, as you typically don’t have too much room for movement.

4. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens: If your bride and groom are spending thousands of dollars on the details of a wedding, they are sure to appreciate you capturing the event in detail. With the 100mm Macro, you can capture detailed shots with the same quality and detail as product advertisements in magazines.

5. 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens: Sometimes the 24-70mm lens just isn’t wide enough to capture everything you want. The ultra wide angle helps you capture your surroundings. Venue and landscape shots are also a great addition to your wedding day coverage, as it sets the scene for the day and allows you to take full advantage of the amazing scenery.

So, What do you think? What are your must-have lenses?

WeddingPhotography

 

Weddings are one of the most momentous occasions in an individual’s life and hence need to be well-covered and preserved for life to be cherished. Staying updated with the latest trends in wedding photography is important to create heartfelt, everlasting memories. As a wedding photographer, you are obligated to capture the entire event in a professional manner and create wonderful memories. To make things easy for you, we have listed some of the latest wedding photography trends for 2019 and beyond –

1. Candid Photography:
Gone are the days when we would shoot pictures using a film with the pressure of getting it perfect in the very first shot, followed by most of the photographers printing the photos where everyone are posing. But now with the flexibility of the digital medium, there is no limit to the number of shots that can be captured. Today, more and more number of people are now shooting candid photographs that capture every expression and emotion being expressed by the bride and the groom throughout their special day.
2. Black and White Photography:
Black and white were being used only for artistic shots in the past, but this trend has been slowly changing with time. Last year we saw the comeback of black and white photography and this year we will see more people using this technique in marriage photography. Black and white images remove the focus from the variation in the composition and prompt the viewer to concentrate on the moment captured.

3.Drone Photography:
Today, drones with cameras are available at reasonable prices, which capture high-quality photos and videos. Drone cameras give a whole new perspective of clicking images from a height. Proper planning and execution of drone marriage photography can produce some of the best photography results.
4. Destination or Location Photography:
More and more people are traveling to exotic locations for their pre- and post-wedding shoots. A new and creative location helps to build the composition and also capture interesting shots. The environment of the new location plays a key role in setting the mood and taking amazing pictures.
5. Using smoke bomb as a prop:
Using smoke bombs is a great way to make wedding photos look more interesting and happening. Mostly such photos are used as the exit photos of the entire event. However, when captured with appropriate backlighting, the colors will shine through and create some of the most amazing shots.
6.Wedding Hashtag:
This is one of the latest trends used to capture the world’s attention towards the wedding. Besides, having the guests upload the photos on social media platforms with the relevant hashtag will also help easy retrieval of the photos and help the couple experience their wedding from the perspective of their guests and acquaintances.
7.Underwater Photography:
With the advent of waterproof cameras and GoPro cameras in the market, underwater shoots are gaining popularity worldwide. Mainly popular among athletes or sportspersons, underwater marriage photo shoots will be in vogue in 2019 and beyond.
8.Stop Motion Wedding Photo Films:
This is the form of photography which takes still photos and animates them amidst a video of choice combined with the pleasing sound effects. These short photo films can be easily shared on social media accounts or embedded in the wedding invitation emails sent to friends and family. This serves as a trailer for the forthcoming wedding and set the mood for it.
