How many lenses do you take with you for a wedding and which ones ?
Do you walk around constantly with a backpack on for safety against theft ?

And for the couple shoot you use all your 'creative' lenses like 16-35 f4L, 50 1.4A, 85 1.2L, 70-200 2.8LII ?

I bring my pelican case which has 24-70, 70-200 and a few primes.

Do you walk around constantly with a backpack on for safety against theft ?

No, but I carry two cameras on me with the two zooms. And a prime in a lens pouch on my belt if needed. I leave the others locked in my trunk, but if I think I'll need access to more, I'll bring the case into the venue and lock it to something secure.

And for the couple shoot you use all your 'creative' lenses like 16-35 f4L, 50 1.4A, 85 1.2L, 70-200 2.8LII ?


If it's outdoors, the 70-200mm. And maybe a prime depending on the background. I will almost always use flash.

I also use a pelican and bring all my gear just in case. You can easily tether/lock the pelican to a good anchor point for safety, but it would make access to equipment slower. To combat that issue, I also bring a backpack for the most used equipment, and keep that very near me, with 2 bodies and 2 lenses and 2 flashes.
