Canon 35mm F/1.4 L– this lens almost lived on my camera during a wedding. Go ahead and take a look at our review of this new bread and butter lens.

Canon 5D Mk II or 7D for Weddings– I’ve shot weddings with both cameras and if you’re thinking of switching camera systems then you should consider giving this a read. They also can compliment one another too by the way.

The Complete Orbis Field Review– We used the Orbis at a wedding and loved the versatility it gave us in so many different situations where the lighting was just terrible. We highly recommend taking a look at this.

The Complete Gary Fong Lightsphere Collapsible Review– This is one very versatile piece of plastic and I’d love to see critics of this unit do everything that this can with one small, easy to carry light diffuser.

The Canon 1D Mk IV Visits St. Patrick’s Cathedral– The creme-de-la-creme of churches in NYC was given a friendly visit to test if the camera could stand up to lighting conditions there.

The Nikon D3s visits St. Patrick’s Cathedral– In the summer, the large and ill-lit church was no match for the D3s.

And because you’re going to ask, in this posting the 1D Mk IV and D3s face off.

Review of the Nikon SB-900 Flash– Many wedding photographers hate it. However, our very own Matt Beardsley has something very different to say.

Thoughts on the 1D Mk IV for weddings from around the web– Top wedding photographers like Jeff Ascough weigh in on the subject of using the 1D Mk IV for documenting that special day.

Judge Joe Brown tells you to not be a cheap wedding photographer– This is just too funny to watch. The photographer doesn’t even know what speed her lens is.
