Gear List and Image Quality
I am often asked “What resolution will your images be?” With DSLR cameras or digital photography, resolution mainly has to do with the camera body used. I shoot with what is called a full frame camera. These cameras have larger sensors and superior image quality. Below is a list of gear that I use and will incorporate into your wedding shoot to ensure I have the right tool for any situation. To give you the most impactful images, I may be bringing some or all of this gear to your event.
Nikon D850 (45.7 megapixel full frame camera body)
Nikon D5 (20.8 megapixel full frame camera body)
Both are the current top of the line Nikon camera Bodies with excellent image quality and abilities.
AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm 2.8
AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm 2.8
AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm 2.8
AF-S NIKKOR 85mm 1.4
AF-S MICRO-NIKKOR 105mm 2.8
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm 1.4
AF-S NIKKOR 35mm 1.4
PC NIKKOR 19mm tilt shift (specialty lense)
This variety allows me to best capture the moment based on location and context.
Lighting is a subject that is not in the forefront of most couple minds, yet it is one of the most important factors that separate professionals from hobbyists. Having the right tools for the different jobs that come up is paramount. I have a range of off-camera lighting gear to meet multiple needs.
For on location portraits, I like to use larger modifiers to create flattering light. For this I use an Elinchrom system with 400 watt second strobes and high speed sync to overpower the sun when needed.
For wedding or engagement environmental portraits I need to move quickly, so I use smaller and even more portable 200 WS flashes (Godox AD200) along with MagMod light modifiers to give me tons of control and agility.
When lighting a reception, I sometimes need to set up multiple strobes and smaller speedlights in order to create impactful images the really pop. My cameras are top of the line performers in low light situations, but sometimes providing that pop of light where needed is what helps to make those truly creative images.
