Our Wedding Photography Camera System
Yes we love photography and yes we love photography gear. And we confess to being gear junkies ;). But having the most expensive gear and the newest equipment really means nothing is you have no clue what to do with it. He train and study continuously to always become better. But gear does make a difference when it comes to image quality. We we want to be sure that we offer our clients the very best image quality available, so we invest in the very best gear. Below is the list of gear that we use for our Los Angeles Weddings, Newborn sessions, engagement sessions, or any other professional project we have the honor to be apart of.
Nikon D810 - High Resolution, fast auto focus, superior image quality, all around favorite camera for Newborn Sessions, Maternity Sessions, Portraits and Headshots, and our lovely Los Angeles Weddings.
Nikon D750 - This camera has the best auto focus and low light performance of any system. Not to mention the image quality is only second to the Nikon D810. This is definitely our favorite camera for weddings and receptions.
Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II - One of our most important lenses we carry in our bag is the 70-200 which is perfect for weddings and events. We love the quality and durability of the Nikon version lens.
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD - Like its counter part, the Tamron offers world class Vibration Control or VC. Matching the image quality and in many cases surpassing the Nikon, the Tamron is our preference in Low Light situations. Combined with the Nikon D750 makes for a perfect match.
Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED - For our Los Angeles Weddings and almost all events this lens is our most used. Durable, reliable, and all around perfect lens is has been our work horse for years. Wouldn't give it up for anything.
Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art - By Far our sharpest lens and our most fun to use lens. With this fast lens and its shallow depth of field form the 1.4 aperture we create some fantastically beautiful images.
Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art - The Art line by Sigma is our secret love affair. This line is the sharpest line out their and creates some of the most brilliant images.
Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM - We really do love our Sigmas. This 85mm is our go to for portraits of any kind. We always us these for out wedding photos and especially our head shots and engagement photography.
Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD - Our super wide angle lense is used mostly at our weddings with an occasional appearance in our engagement sessions.
Nikon AF-S 60mm f/2.8 ED Macro - When we need to get the teenie tiny details like the feet in a newborn session, details of the wedding rings or bouquet we bring out the 60mm Macro by Nikon. Super sharp, fast auto focus and build like a tank.
YongNuo YN-565EX N - These flashes are the glue that holds everything together. We own 6 of these flashes and never leave home with out at least 2. We have found these to be very reliable and powerful. You will see us with these attached to our camera bodies for almost the entire wedding day.
Our Lighting Gear
Our studio and some of our outdoor maternity and engagement sessions we rely on Alien Bees B800 and B400, Rovelight 600B (for our high speed sync needs), and an assortment of softboxes and light modifiers. Our various light modifiers allow us to control and manipulate the light so we can have full control over our creative process.
