    since he listed, that would mean there is a chance of buying TC for the shoot. im just curious about getting TC for a wedding shoot.
    not saying its not possible, but just weird to see someone adding TC for wedding like hunting for love birds.

    Your set up looks fine, just one wedding only, why you need to buy something?

    one wedding spend $1.3k, two wedding spend $2.6k, how many weddings you have to shoot than you can justify your purchase?

    Unless you sure you want to shoot weddings in a very long run, and shoot many wedding, like at least 20 per year.

    but I seriously tell you, once you say you start charging for your service, you friends will look for someone else.

    get a lens tt gives from 28mm to 70mm (after 1.5x) and external flash. if you like to take closeup shots , u need a long and fast lens but it dun come cheap but recommend Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 for your budget range.

    I would be worried if his friends were paying him?
    He sounds like he's shooting with totally no experience and the misconception that spending $$ on lens will give him good shots.

    Nothing wrong really, but I really hope that he's just the backup photographer shooting for the fun of it with no expectations from the couple.

    Well, any camera & lenses can be used to produce good photos. Just have to work within the limits of your set-up.

    But it's ok to have people buying lots of cameras and lenses, so that Nikon & 3rd party manufacturers can stay in business and R&D to give us better and better lenses & equipment at lower prices!

    you're good to go as many have said here but you do lack a WA beyond the 18mm you have but you won't be taking that many shots with a 10-20 or 12-24. if you do, watch out for people at the edges as they get terribly distorted.

    tats y i say the 18-200 not so good..u get distortion at widest and tele end..but just a shoot for fren should be ok wif the 18-200..remember to bring bounce card for ur flash..
