I attended a wedding as a family guest a few weeks back. Having done a number of weddings myself, I was curious to watch the photographer in action.
First thing I noticed, two camera bodies, both Canon 5DMKII's! I only had my 7D with me but was only planning on shooting family shots anyway.
So I got up to shoot the bride and groom and noticed the lenses on the two 5DMKII's ... a 16-35 and a 100-400 ... HUH??
When he shot with the 16-35, he was in their faces much of the time and when he shot with the 100-400 he was across the hall! Worst part was, he set up a light stand w/flash and white umbrella and shot most of the reception with the 100-400 from the other side of the dance floor. Problem with that, NOBODY could see the couple for the umbrella!
Half the people missed the cutting of the cake because of the umbrella. I got a shot (by stepping between the photog and the couple) and even my shot has mostly umbrella in it! people were complaining!
The same thing happened throughout the reception ... first kiss, toast, first dance, father and bride dance ....
Does that set up seem kinda strange? I've mentioned it to a few people I know (photogs) and their reply was the same as mine ... HUH?? ... followed by a hearty chuckle!
Haven't see any photos yet but just the fact that half the guests missed so many things as well as their own photos.
I don't think I would consider these two lenses in combo nor even the 100-400 at ALL for an indoor wedding reception.
