The best Nikon lense for wedding photography is the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E. This lens is the most popular for capturing the wedding day in a professional way. This lens is perfect for everything from portraits and candid shots to shooting from a distance across an officiant making vows on the dais. It even has a focus mode which allows you to follow your subject wherever they go without having to adjust your camera settings.
This lens is designed with HD video recording in mind too, so it’s going to provide superb detail, even when filming during ceremonies in dimly lit spaces such as churches or synagogues.
Fast lenses also allow you to capture moments in low light. A slower lens will have a difficult time capturing moments due to the motion blur. The fast lens captures every detail of what is happening in the scene, even in low-light situations.
A fast lens means that the shutter is open for a shorter period of time. This allows you to capture the image without the subject or background being blurred. The faster lens helps you get higher shutter speeds which will decrease motion blur while increasing your chances of getting the perfect shot.
One other way to use slow lenses that don’t have a fast aperture is to use a flash. When shooting with a slow lens, the low light makes it difficult for your camera’s automatic settings to properly expose the image. A flash will fill in the subject without drastically affecting the background.
You can also use this technique if you have a wide-aperture lens, but want to emphasize certain areas of the photo by using an off-camera flash.
