It is important to have not only a good camera, it required a lot of experience in wedding photography. Is a good, conscientious working wedding photographer do not go with a camera and a lens, but it is to be able to work simultaneously with 2 cameras, covering all areas of focal length without changing lenses. PCRM often addresses the matter in his writings. And at the same time a replacement housing and a spare Flash in the hindquarters have likewise enough batteries and memory cards. Imagine, is one of the crucial moments during the wedding as the ring Exchange, and your photographer screws on his camera around, to set up a different lens? Or just the battery is empty at the moment, where the couple kisses, and uncle Fritz determines that his second battery is not charged at all or the film is full (or memory card) and no further in the case. I as a photographer already experienced such a moment during a wedding where I only for the group picture was ordered and had to give the bride and groom two films so this Uncle Fritz could shoot some portraits. .
