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 ??
