    I'm 2nd shooting a wedding on Oct 23rd.
    I went by the church today as well, and got some pre shots.

    I am going to rent a 70-200 2.8 af-s for my NikonD3000.
    I will also be renting a D200 with a 50mm 1.8.

    I have a few other lens
    the kit 18-55
    the kit 55-200
    and 35 1.8

    I also have an SB-600.

    Flash is allowed in the church.

    These were all taken with my 35 1.8

    Looks like the lighting is way better than my church! Good luck!

    It looks like there's lots of light. That's good. What's the f/#'s on your kit lenses? The 35 f/1.8 is nice for the light it lets in, but you're going to have to be right in there faces, lol.

    The 70-200 f/2.8 will be a big help. I think you'll be ok if you leave this one on the camera. I'd only switch to the 35 f/1.8 if I was doing artsy shots of the church or rings or something after the wedding. It would probably be ok for the group shots, as well.

    Good luck! If you can, post some of the pics afterward.

    Yes, that looks much brighter than some of the 'caves' I've shot in.

    How is the ceiling? (do you think you'll be able to bounce the flash)?

    In one of the pictures of the windows, you can see that the wall continues up some. It looks too tall to bounce off of. I'd be willing to bet it's not a flat ceiling.

    The ceiling is way high, I don't think I'm going to be able to bounce.

    I will probably shoot the ceremony with the 70-200 2.8 tripod mounted.
    but I am going to rent the D200 and have the 50 1.8 just so I don't have to change lens and I'll have two cameras just incase....

    Bride is paying for the rental and I'm renting them from the studio I work so 25 for everything....for the entire weekend!
