Hi All,
I have been reading all the different post related to wedding photography and I have been asked to take some pictures a my wifes best freind's wedding this comming weekend..They have a regular photographer..I'll more or less be doing the informal shots....!!!

I feel pretty confident about the rehearsal dinner and the reception..my real worries are during the actual marriage ceremony because I have been told that there is absobsolutly NO FLASH ALLOWED !!

I'll been sitting within the first 3-4 rows on the isle..so I guess distance won't be an issue ???

Also I'll be using a 20D with a Bogen Monopod and have the following lens:

Canon 17-40 F4 L
Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD (very very sharp copy)
Canon 24-105 F4 L IS (sharp copy)
Canon 70-200 F2.8 L
Canon 50 1.4
Canon 100 F2

My question(s) are
1. What lens should I use for the walk down the isle as well as the actual ceremony ?? my concerns are is F4 going to cut vs 2.8 ???

2. Also for wide angle shots at the alter I only have the 17-40 again F4 vs 2.8...should I go out and try to rent a Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II ??

None of us have any idea how much actual light there will be in the Church, so there is really no way for us to know whether 4.0 or even 2.8 will be fast enough.

I would prefer a 24-70 f2.8L in general terms, but in your case the 24-105 f4L IS may be the best choice. Even though f4 may be too slow in low light situations, people are not moving much during ceremonies, so IS can help.

For the rest I would also take the 50 f1.4.
