Canon 5D Mark III

I love everything about the 5D Mark III. It's fast shutter speeds, it's ability to shoot in low light situations, and it's sharpness in the photo's it produces. It works great for weddings in the many changes of light you face being a wedding photographer. It can go from dark to bright and have the ability to change with mood. I stick with Canon because of its consistency. 

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM Lens

The majority of lens I have are fixed, which means they cannot zoom in and out. This is one of my lenses that can. I love the wide angle of the 24 and having the ability to change all the way to 35 and then to 70. It works great in quick and tight situations like putting on your dress in small places or the dance floor at the reception. It is so versatile, allowing me to capture anything from environmental photos to large groups to close ups of grandpa, Joe, stealing a quick dance with you at your reception.  

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

There is nothing better than being the photographer that no one knows about. This has captured many candid moments, especially during the ceremony. I can stand far, far away and sit capture your dad tearing up in his seat. It is a great lens to get close ups without anyone even knowing I was there to capture it. It is big and mighty, but has seen moments that are not worth forgetting. 

 

 

Canon 35mm f/1.4 USM Lens

The 35mm is great for an array of landscapes and sunset romantic portraits. It also gets details, room photos, and quick close up allowing me to still keep a background with you. This is great for family portraits and allowing me to capture the big group that gathered to see you say "I do" to the one you love. 

 

 

Canon 50mm f/1.2 USM Lens

I could shoot the entire wedding with this lens; portraits to details to family photos. I use this lens in a majority of your romantic portraits together. It is clear, quick, and just what I need to capture the love between the two of you. 

Canon 85mm f/1.2 II USM Lens

This is my main portrait lens and one of my favorites. I love the details this lens produces in the getting ready moments from buttoning up the dress or putting on the last few touches of makeup. It is also a great lens for details in reception decor and guest books.

Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens

This lens is great for close ups of the ring photos or anything small detailed. This is produces some great photos to put into your album of the little things like jewelry or that small "something blue" your grandma gave to you.

Canon 135mm f/2 USM Lens

This lens is a great addition to get those close up smiles when taking your romantics. It is also great for church ceremonies when I need to be far away. It is also another great lens for candids and the moments between moments. I use this lens when I get a tricky background, allowing me to focus on what is needed and take away what is not. I would not come to any wedding without this by my side. 

 

 

Canon Speedlite 600 EX-II-RT

I use flash in a majority of the reception and low lighting situations. It is quick for many dancing photos, speeches, and cake cutting moments. It's recycle times allows to be quick in the moment, so you can't miss mom showing up the dance floor. There are things that can't be missed and they usually happen after the "I do's." 

Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter

This allows me to link separate flashes together where I am allowed to use light where I want it. It is great for dance floor moments and a quick romantic after the sun has set.
