- What gear do you shoot with?
Currently we use a Canon EOS 5DIII as a main body and 7D's as backup. We have a selection of lenses including primes and fast zooms. Such as the 85mm f1.8, 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.4, 17-50mm f2.8, 24-70mm f2.8L and 70-200mm f2.8L. We also have backup camera bodies, lenses, flashes and other bits and bobs that help us do the job.
- How many photos do you take?
Usually between 50 to 70 photos per hour depending on the number of guests, lighting conditions, etc.
- When is the best time to have the ceremony?
Your wedding planner will help you decide on the most appropriate time for the service but between 1 and 2 hours before sunset will give you the best light. Ask your wedding planner about tides as at most resorts, a low tide will leave parts of the reef uncovered.
