Need advice for wedding this weekend.

I'm shooting a wedding this weekend as a backup and need advice. I shot one before and it turned out pretty good but I feel like it could have been much better.

The gear I'll be using:


Tamron 70-200 2.8 USD

CZ 24-70 2.8

Sigma 50 1.4

Sony HVL-f58

Gary Fong Lightsphere

Batty grip of course

Assuming most of the welding will be indoors. I'm sure some will take place outside.

My last wedding I shot everything including flash in manual so I'm pretty comfortable with it but I'm wondering if Auto might be a better option. Manual seems to work well in more controlled situations. I hear people on here recommend Auto for weddings so I'm just curious what their experience was.

I wish they had TTL triggers for the new hot shoe so I can really take advantage of the speed lights. Fondling around with adapters is not an option. I have one and that is one more then I want.

Anyways thanks in advance.
