Wedding Photographers in Kent

For further photography-related information check out my compendium of tips.

Here's a question that I'm sure concerns many wanting to take their first steps in wedding photography:

Hi David,

I'm looking to start out as a wedding photographer. One question remains - Nikon or Canon?

Does Canon have better lenses? Does Nikon focus better and have better Flash performance blah blah.

I'd like your impartial opinion without considering price issues.

A second question - have you played much with the video capabilities of your 5DMk2 - I've not read of any wedding photographers making any use of it.

Thank you!


Hi Alex,

The bottom line is that you can't go wrong with either.

One of the key factors to base your decision upon is the lenses that you favour. If treated well, they'll be with you for the rest of your working life.

You'll be replacing your camera bodies every 18 months and flash units as required.

I'm not familiar with Nikon kit, and don't spend any time fretting about these matters, but it seems that they have the edge at the moment with camera bodies - the Nikon D3 is very highly regarded. Still it should inspire Canon to greater heights!

All I can say from personal experience is that Canon has a very fine stable of lenses.

I have been using my 5D Mark II at weddings and the results are stunning. The world-renowned wedding photographer Yervant has just posted a clip on his blog.
