Should hardly be a joke. Call it a skill being able to get creative with just the one focal length

And love the depth of field comment about it not being your style.. It's really prominent the difference between the upcoming generation of photographers and the previous one.

id rather call it irresponsible

how about using a 70-200 to get closer reaction shots during the ceremony and a 85 for portraits and so on...
i am not part of some "past generation" but under the notion that its important to be able to cover a wedding in its entirety with focus and sharp usable photo's throughout. And also have the proper backup equipment and lenses just in case.
shooting shallow is great and i like the pics but if they are not sharp as in this case then in my opinion they are not a professional product. If you are paying for pictures shouldn't they be in focus?

Yes, having a million lenses to cover every little detail would be nice to have. Sadly, I can not afford buying a millon lenses. So I'll have to get creative with what I have. You have to start somewhere and also allow yourself to fail.

remember its not your day its theres and they hire a pro to get a pro product. i assume they are not photographers so they will trust that you have it under control

You have to start somewhere, but you should start from a position from which it's unlikely you're going to fail. This means being prepared.

I'm curious. If your camera fails, do you have a backup ? If your lens fails (the 1.4 is notorious for this) do you have a backup ? Your flash ?

Naturally I informed the couple that I had zero experience in wedding photography and very limited equipment. But they were still impressed with my previous work, and they wanted me to do it anyway. I did consider borrowing a couple of lenses (can't afford renting!), but that obviously didn't happen.

Honestly, if your guts tell you to do it, do it. I'm sick of all this obsession with equipment. Rather a limited equipment and a creative mind than a 50 pound bag of glass but no imagination. Why would I let my equipment limit me? I have an old battered Nikon D50 with an almost broken 50/1.8 that I use for backup. But I don't own a flash. I don't like the look of flash.

And to make me seem more reckless and unprepared, I should mention that I only had one battery and one memory card. Living on the edge!

I went to your site, and I must say, I quite like your style. There are issues for sure with exposure focus and framing, but the feeling I get from the majority of your photos is the "emotion" you captured. I have nothing to say about wedding photography, never would do one, and I understand the C&C the classic photographers are giving. They know their craft, and have some stunning portfolios to their credit. Take the comments that apply to what you need to work on and and run with them.
Work on the areas that need work, then keep doing what you are doing.For the most part, it seems to be evolving.

And get extra lenses, lol...and a battery and a card..you never know when that "perfect and Precise" moment will happen, and dang, you have no memory left;) Every wedding or session you do, put money away for extra gear supplies.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I find beauty in imperfection, most people don't. I love the shot with the church door and I don't mind that it's not horizontal. There is this obsession with perfection in everything and it's fruitless because perfection doesn't exist. Keep doing what you do, haters will always hate.

What he said : ). Nice work. It all boils down to what the client wants, all other opinions are not relevant.

I like what you did, and I like that it is different. I definitely wouldn't have shown up without a back up of everything, but that is me. If they know what they are getting and the risks involved, I don't see an issue.
