The Best Cameras and Lenses for Wedding Photography

by Gaurav Gupta Marketing Head

Any professional and dedicated photographer will describe you that the camera body you happen to use matters significantly less than the lens. However, it is still helpful to note which are the best cameras for wedding photography specifically, as shutter speed and ISO requirements are pretty important when shooting in potentially low-light and fast-moving environments.

While this list is not all-encompassing, it is a good starting point for anyone wants to know what are some of the best full frame cameras, using for their next professional wedding photography shoot. Hesitant to fork over the heavy price tag on a camera or lens that you’re not familiar with.

Nikon D7200 – It is a high performing and low-cost option for the Nikon crowd. Even though it happens to be a DX (crop) sensor, the first-rate frame rate and good ISO range make this a strong option for a beginner or intermediate wedding photographer.

Canon 6D – An affordable option that is capable of producing quality images in low light. While it is able to keep up with the 5D Mark III in this regard, it can’t hold up to the AF of the 5D Mark III which can be a pain point for wedding photographers.

Nikon D750 – This incredibly versatile and powerful camera body is a step up from the D7200, both in terms of megapixels, frame rate, and ISO. Its price point is still reasonable, while enabling the photographer pro-level functionality.

Canon 5D Mark III – Great in low light, strong AutoFocus, coupled with the ability to be weather sealed make this camera a wedding photographers dream. While it’s price point is above that of the 6D, the bang is worth the buck.

Canon 5DSR – This Canon broke new ground with its insanely high 50 megapixel CMOS sensor. Let’s be clear, the vast majority of wedding photographers have no need for this kind of resolution. Having said that, with the proper lens attached, this camera is capable of some pretty stunning results.

Nikon D810 – This is the finest proficient-level Nikon camera for the wedding photography. With the hefty price tag you get 36 megapixels, insane ISO range, and just all-around solid performance. The only thing you lose out on in frame rate in comparison with the D750.

The Best Lenses for Wedding Photography

35mm f/1.4

Canon 35mm f/1.4, is an L-series professional lens with an aspherical element. While other L-series lenses excel at capturing width, the 35 lens measures closely to what the eye naturally sees, from periphery to periphery. The Nikon equivalent 35mm f/1.4 is a comparably exceptional low-light lens that is perfect for capturing the subtleties in portrait photography.

50mm f/1.2 – 1.4

Canon 50mm f/1.2 lens gives the versatility to shoot in a wide variety of conditions. The f/1.2 and Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lenses are designed to capture crystal-clear pictures regardless of the lighting, allowing for high-quality shots in low-lighting conditions without a flash.

70-200 f/2.8

Every wedding photographer needs the Canon 70-200 f/2.8, or the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 lens on hand, Jasmine believes. The price can be daunting. This lens is essential because wedding photographers often find themselves shooting a ceremony in a poorly-lit church. To get the desired results from a respectable distance, the best wedding photographer needs a lens that has high-quality zoom lenses.

85mm f/1.2 – 1.8

Both the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 and the Canon 85mm f/1.2 are weighty. Many photographers defy making use of the 85mm as of the comprehensive time it uses to take to focus. Comparably, the newer Nikon 85mm f/1.8 is lighter, cheaper, and is one of the sharpest mid-range primes that Nikon has released in a long time.

100mm Macro f/2.8

For capturing a stunning close up of the couple’s rings or jewels on the bodice of a bride’s dress, prefer the Canon 100mm Macro IS. The Nikon 105mm Macro f/2.8 delivers similarly stunning quality of close up objects.
