Re: None - you were paid to shoot a wedding

Shoot a wedding ( a once in a lifetime event for most people ) with the best gear you have, not as a pet project for yourself.

I would use the 6D and the 50 f1.4. Rent a 24-70 f2.8 and a 70-200 f4 L IS or 70-200 f2.8. And a flash if you don't have one.

By all means bring a film camera ( any EOS will do - think film choice instead ), but don't experiment with a wedding that's not yours to play with. I

You mentioned perhaps shooting 25% of the wedding on film. Think 5% and make it the least critical parts. Double every shot you take with film on digital.

Thanks for the advice. I am pretty clear with my friend as to what she wants. And she wants a fair amount of film shots. I'm not going to get too over my head with equipment that I don't know. I will probably with with an EOS film camera + OM-4, both of which I should have no problem with.
