A wedding photographer’s camera gear can make or break a shoot. It’s necessary to carefully consider each piece of equipment before going in to capture those once in a lifetime moments. While Sony may not be the most popular make for wedding photographers, the Sony A7R II offers a lot of advantages for photographers at all levels. That’s why we’ve chosen to base all of our Sony wedding gear combinations around the A7R II.
Sony Professional Wedding Photographer
A professional wedding photographer using the Sony A7R II mirrorless camera is getting impressive performance in low light. The high ISO performance, along with a silent shutter, make the A7R II a fantastic alternative to a heavier DSLR. We’ve paired the Sony A7R with four must-have lenses:
- the Sony FE 70 – 200mm f/2.8
- the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4
- the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 macro
- and the Sony FE 24 – 70mm f/2.8
Professional wedding photographers using this gear set can enjoy the breadth of lenses it provides. The Sony FE 70 – 200mm f/2.8 is a fantastic telephoto lens for those across the room shots, while the FE 85mm prime lens creates beautiful portraits and group shots. For that breathtaking ring shot, the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 macro is superb. Finally, the FE 24 – 70mm f/2.8 covers a lot of ground, taking care of those on the go, once in a lifetime shots.
Sony Semi-Professional Wedding Photographer
The professional wedding photographer on slightly smaller budget may opt for the Sony A7R II and three lenses. While this gear set is lighter, it still allows the professional on a budget to deliver exceptional photos. We’ve included the:
These three lenses allow you to capture the wide angle, close ups, and action shots to impress your next bride and groom.
Sony Second Shooter
Second shooters using the Sony A7R II can enjoy the same beautiful image quality and low light performance as main wedding photographers. Even with a single lens, this second shooter gear set allows a second shooter photographer to capture high quality shots. We’ve chosen the Sony EF 70 – 200mm f/2.8 as a versatile lens for many shooting situations.
Sony Beginner Wedding Photographer
With the wide breadth of photography gear out there, a beginner wedding photographer may have a difficult time deciding what equipment to take on those first wedding shoots. The Sony A7R II paired with the Sony FE 24 – 70mm f/2.8 is a light, budget friendly option that takes full advantage of the A7R II’s incredible capabilities.
