    13. 1 X 85mm f1.8 lens
    ...
    Noticed u use standard lens except 17-85mm and all below 85mm. Do you find the need to change lens often or you manage to control the crowd and plan the lens to use?

    BTW is the max. 85mm range sufficient? I thought it would be good to have something like a 70-200mm so to get some flexibility on distance.

    Please share your thoughts. Cheers.

    I find 85mm good enough for outdoor. 70-200m abit too much.

    14mm are to take fisheye shot of the hotel room, bride's room during make up, and some time a shot of the bride and groom in the car when I am in the front seat.

    28mm is basically for tea ceremony.

    50mm is for during make-up, shooting the decoration and offerings.

    85mm only comes in when there's solemisation in outdoor. Or couple request for some outdoor portraits during free time.

    Notice that prime lens are used only when crowd are less or more controlled. Most of the time, on the move or during the "door negotiation" I use zoom.

    Around 75 degree up or higher. Direct shoot will only over illum the character. I shoot using spot or average metering. The flash i'm using is SB-800 in i-TTL mode.
