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?
