A wedding is an important once-in-a-lifetime occasion that deserves to be captured with quality photos. Your job as a photographer must ensure that your output will ensure that such quality is met.

And as many photographers, even Mallorca wedding photographers, would knows, part of the equation in delivering that needed quality lies in the lenses that the photographer uses. For wedding photography, it is important to know what lenses to use and what moment should you use them.

  • 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens

This particular lens gives you good zooming distance of up to 200mm, letting you get close to the moment without being disruptive. It also creates a beautiful blur effect at f/2.8 aperture. It is also an appropriate lens to use to capture candid moments.

  • 50mm f/1.2 Lens

This lens can be useful for low light environments. You don’t have to use flash as it does the job in highlighting the background and bringing out the natural look for your subjects. This is also a good lens if you will be doing portrait shots with its low aperture that makes your subject pop out on the foreground.

  • 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

This lens is appropriate to use on small spaces, especially if the venue makes it impossible to use either a zoom lens because the lens can come too close to the subject or a 50mm as it is not flexible enough to be a versatile lens.

  • 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens

This particular lens is appropriate for you to take more detailed shots, especially of still life items.

  • 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Wide angle lenses help fill out the rest of the details when regular lenses would not be enough to do shot. This lens provides quality and greater details in the photos.

  • 85mm f1.2L II USM

This particular lens is a fast, medium telephoto lens that can deliver superb optical performance. You get a great low-light performance and an impressive bokeh or blur effect thanks to its large aperture.

As a photographer, you should prepare as many lenses as possible for whatever moment that may arise during the event. Of course, it is not necessary for you to have all the lenses out there, or having all the lenses listed here. What is more important though is that you know the moments you would be shooting for the event and have the appropriate lens to capture that particular moment.
