our best friend is getting married early next year, and she was going to hire a photographer to do it but her mother said it cost too much and they didnt have money. long story short, i said i would do it for her and her husband. most of my limited photography experience has been nature. plants, animals especially macros. some ideas of what a weeding here is like (taiwan). outdoors often quite bright light. there are many round tables with 8-10 people at each all under a tarp like canopy in a long row with a stage and singer at the front. because the wedding may be over 200 meters long, and narrow, i am thinking a good wide angle lens would be a good idea. photos i *need* to get for the family are: full family portrait (maybe 20-30 people sitting/standing infront of a very colourful background (see pics at bottom for idea) bride & groom in all sorts of positions, but mostly natural. eating shots, as the weddings here are all about FOOD :lmao: "landscape" all the tables and kitchen etc. anything else you think is good? i am using a Cannon Kiss X (i think it is the same as the eos 400). i have the standard kit lens and a sigma 70-300 macro. neither seem to me to be too incredibly good for the purpose here, so I am thinking a wide angle would be the best buy? i will only be able to afford 1 lens, so i dont want to buy the wrong one. any suggestions and help are MORE than appreciated. here are some examples of my wedding here. ignore teh quality these are just random shots guests mailed me thanks again!
