Best lens set for wedding (and general portraits) photography
2 months ago

I would love (my wife and I) to start a little photography business and we will be doing 2 of our good friend's wedding for very cheap to build and learn (though I have done a few SR Portraits and the like) and my question is:

What are good lens to start off with (cheaper, yet still good non-Nikon lens) for portrait and weddings (either to buy or rent)? Eventually we may replace them with Nikon ones though:)

I just did pick up a refeb Nikon 50mm f/1.8d for under a hundred so I am very happy and can't wait to use!!
