Wow ... what a special series.
I really love the composition you and your wife have used.
It's different from what i have seen everywhere else.
Really excellent work here.

Number 10 is really good, really attention grabbing. The whole series is nicely executed, well done!

These look great to me. My daughter is getting married in about a month and I hope the photographer is even half as good as you.

my favorite is the reflection off the table/piano and the overhead shot of the bride!

Thanks again everyone!
Sailor- Your too much
hockmasm- Reflection shot, my wife took with the 30 1.4 on a k-x
Overhead shot taken with the DA 70 2.4 on k200d (tried to sell this lens a few months back, really glad no one bought it.)

Great series!

I am planning to shot at my friend's wedding next week.
I don't have any experience though. Mostly shooting bugs, flowers, architectures

I see our gears are alike.
I will be much happy if I hear your lens selection recommendations.
I think working space will be tighter then of those seen in shots.
I have a K20D and maybe borrow another K20D.
So 3 lenses will be selected, I guess?
Shots like I'd like to take are #1, 5, 8, 9, 14, 19.

You can see my gear at the sign.
Should I risk manual focus with Nokton , or just stick to the DA70?

Thanks advance.

Apemen- I see this is your gear
DA 10-17mm fisheye
DA 15mm Limited, DA 21mm Limited, DA 40mm Limited, DA 70mm Limited
DFA 100mm f2.8 Macro WR, DA* 200mm
Sigma 30mm F/1.4, Voigtländer Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SLII

First off- Beg, barrow, steal just make sure you have a second body.
It really depends on your style. When it comes to lens selection.
I typically don't use flash but thats me.
I typically usually have one body on my shoulder (70) and one in my hand (30) and I also have a little shoot sac type bag with extra lenses, batteries, memory.
If it was me with your gear...
One body with a Sigma 30 1.4 and one with a DA70 and the 15mm in my pocket.
The DA* 200m could be a great lens for the ceremony.
If it is a really tight venue like you said I might switch it up to the
DA15 on one body and the Sigma 30 1.4 on another. But again it just depends on your style.
Good Luck!
