    Very informative video, i also will be shooting my first wedding this year. This has helped me sort of get myself ready. Thanks for sharing 

  9. absolutely, Elisabeth!

    Thank you so much for your videos.  I am scheduled to shoot my first bridal shoot, and first weddings (2 in June and 1 in July).  I’m excited and nervous.  I have a Canon 5d and t3 and a 50mm, but I will rent to 24-70 and 70-200 until I can afford my own.  I will definitely be watching more of your videos.

    I watched this a few months ago and watched it again.

    I’m not yet where you are, I admire your images shown in the video and will (hehe) steal a few ideas.

    After shooting a few weddings, this works for me: outside with aperture mode, between f2.8 and 16, depending on subject. Often I allow my Nikon D600 to go up to 1600, even 3200 in auto ISO, min shutter speed often 125th but adjusted for the scene,.freezing action or creating motion blur.

    Yes there is grain at ISO 3200, but software cleans it up OK. The D600 focus system is great, catches focus in almost complete darkness.

    Flash… I very, very carefully use fill flash outside, to overcome shadow in eye sockets and for nice catch light. Or for dramatic effects, dropping background into darkness. Often on TTL with -2 or -3 flash comp. Flash photography is still a challenge for me.

    I’m struggling the get the rear curtain action shots while dancing. You show sime reallt nice ones. Sometime out of a 100 shots 3 or 4 are usable.

    I’m using a 50mm 1.8, 90mm 2.8 macro, 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8 and also carry a 17-35mm f 4. .. that doesn’t get used much for weddings. The 24-70 is my most used lens.

    My second camera is a D7000 by the way. 4 flashes, 4 radio triggers. Plenty spare memory cards and batteries, lens cleaner etc. All in 3-4 cheap version Pelikan cases.

    I just absolutely love shooting weddings! Great challenge, great responsibility, but so much fun!
