wedding photography equipment??....

Hi All...

Ive just been asked to do a wedding for a friend of mine. Now..i just had a question or 2 on equipment. What is absolutely neccesary and what can be left out.

My equipment that i have right now:

Nikon D70s body
Lenses: a 50mm lens, 28-70mm, 70-300 lens.
Flash unit, SB-800.

Is there more i would need to do this wedding?

Thanks so much, Jennifer.

Multiple CF cards, atleast 2 batteries. Most people use 2 SB-800s. i also would get a 85mm of some sort depending your budget.

But... as you asked, you have what is neccesary

You'll have your medium range zoom lens on most of the time, at least I do when I'm shooting weddings. Depends on the setting, but I find outdoors I shoot my 70-300 quite a bit, but indoors the 28-80 sees the most action. Also, bring lots of batteries for your flash and 2 batteries for the camera, lots of storage media, keep a lens cloth close and lens caps somewhat organized. Ideally, if I could afford to buy an 18-200mm lens, most of my problems would be solved, changing lenses is no fun because you think you'll miss something. I get that really stressed out, neverous feeling swapping lenses so if you find the right lens for what you're working with then stay with it and fire away.
