The saying goes that "your equipment doesn’t matter nearly as much as knowing what to do with it." Yet being invested in the best cameras and lighting equipment does give you an edge.
CAMERAS, LENSES & LIGHTING
My primary camera for wedding photography is Nikon’s flagship camera – the Nikon D5. Huge advancements in sensor design, autofocus, metering and image processing result in thrilling new capabilities—low light shooting all the way to ISO 102,400, precise AF detection and tracking across that entire ISO range, regardless of your subject's speed or direction changes, blazing fast 12 fps continuous shooting, and, of course, image quality that captures the hearts and minds.
I always carry two camera bodies with two different lenses mounted and alternate between them to capture different perspectives. My second camera is the Nikon D850 - a camera that allows photographers to capture fast action in 45.7 megapixels of brilliant resolution. With remarkable advancements across the board—sensor design, autofocus, dynamic range, sensitivity, Speedlight control, battery life, shutter and mirror drive mechanisms, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, focus shift capability and more—this is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.
