at least your wife with the 50d & 24-105 is shooting the men, they are a lot less important than the women lol

Yeah, the clients so far have not been too picky about having groomsmen shot simultaneously anyway but we would like to be prepared. Some shots with the 24-105 on crop is definitely better than none.

That's what I was afraid of. I have seen a lot of nice prep shots done with a 50L on FF but it would be really hard fitting all the bridesmaids in a tight room corner without a 24mm FF equivalent.

I find it extremely rare that I need to shoot bridesmaids (group shots) at the prep room. It's usually somewhere else.

That said, for the prep, I carry the following. 2 cameras with speedlites on each, (only because I can have a lens mounted on each which then opens up my Think Tank LensChanger 3 for an additional 3 lenses) 24L II, 50L, 85L, 100L, and most recently, the 45 TS-E. I mostly use the 50L and 85L. 85L definitely for tighter portraits.

Thanks! I'm starting to lean more and more towards 35L then. I will have 70-200 2.8 and 50 1.8 with me as well. That should cover the bases for the prep shoot.

Put your 24-105L to 35mm and see if you like that focal length. I used to have the 35L, but sold it since it wasn't getting much use. I prefer the 24L. More dramatic focal length.

Yeah, i was thinking more for wider shots of the dress going on, riding in the limo, etc..
