My Favorite Wedding Lens: Sony FE 35mm f/1.4
11

I've been asked a few times on IG what my favorite wedding lens/focal length is. Turns out my favorite wedding lens is also my favorite lens in general.

When I was with Canon, it was the same. I shot a lot with a 35mm 1.4. Today with Sony, it's the same thing but better. The keeper rate since the switch has been crazy. Accuracy has just been spot.

The reason I love this focal length so much is because for my style of shooting, I find it to be the most versatile prime lens in my bag. For weddings, I can shoot portraits with shallow dof, environmental portraits, couple shots, family portraits, group shots and even detail shots all with a single prime.

Below are some photos from a recent wedding I did where I used this lens for maybe 90% of the photos. All images are shot wide open too. For all the whole photos set, you can view them on my blog here:
