Right, so you should go ahead and make some recommendations on lenses, without knowing what equipment TS owns now. I would like to see how you do it.

For all you know, he could be using a prosumer superzoom. or a EVIL camera like GF-1 :bsmilie:;)

duh! of course it matters.

yes i think TS's post is too vague for CSers to help.

should have mention the equipment he already owned or if he intend to get new lenses specifically for the wedding.

should also state the venue and the kind of wedding that's going to be held.

"Things to take" can differ from venue to venue... for eg a beach wedding, a garden wedding and a wedding at a church all have different things to take note of:)

it can be done as simple as a entry level dslr with kit lens, or 1D Mk XXXXXX or D3/4/5/6 with trinity pro lenses, all you need is a camera system that you are most familiar with, no time and also an inappropriate situation for you to try new gears or technique on this day.

best you can find out the day programs and ritual from your wedding couple, and what are their expectation, since you have totally no idea what to begin with.

there are already have many ready info in this forum, all you need to do is do a simple thread title search with the keyword of "wedding", just include the relevant sub forums to narrow down the search results.

there is also this book in our National Library, you can borrow it for some systematic reading if you have the time.

hope this help.

Things to take note:
#1: Talk to the wedding couple. Ask them what would be their programme. Plan ahead using the info you have.
#2: Use a zoom lens, preferably a 18-200mm so that you don't miss your shots.
#3: Make sure you have a proper flash. Fit a diffuser for softer lighting effects.
#4: A tripod would be useful for group shots especially group shots on stage.
#5: A DSLR that you have.

Lastly, do some trial practise at home to see how the setup work for you.
:embrass:

Just don't be stressed. You need to know what's in the programme. Keep your eyes and ears open to know the latest happening and take pics of it if you want. And set your camera to suit the environment even before you start shooting.
