  Our Primary Lenses

This is Shel's primary lens, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens, for Canon SLR Cameras. Gee that's a long name for a really great lens! What's great about it? Glad you asked, first off it allows Shel to stand far away and capture your moments so you don't even know when she is taking a picture! Secondly, it has image stabilization built in which ensures we get the shot, when we need it! Finally, its ability to quickly focus is unmatched!  To read more about this lens, which is known as the professional wedding photographer's best friend, please read this review:

Shel's mid-range lens,and the favorite of many wedding photographers, is the Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard zoom lens.  This lens is just great at what it does, from great group shots, to having the magical ability to capture a wide-view when you need one, this is truly the world's greatest mid-range zoom lens.

While zoom lenses provide more flexibility, the prime Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 lens is hugely popular with wedding photographers because of its image quality, small size, lightweight, and great ability to capture low-light indoor photography images. For a full review, please go here:

  Our Lighting
While we prefer natural light (as all photographers do!) we are prepared and ready for extremely low-light situations or night shots.  Our lighting is provided by the Canon 600ex-rt Speedlite, and we have seven of them. These are capable of providing all of the light we need for any event and are the top-of-the line speedlites used by professional photographers throughout the world.  For a detailed review:  http://markwebbphoto.com/blog/2012/6/canon-600ex-rt-review
When we are lighting large rooms, then we use our strobe lighting, the Alien Bees B800's. We have six of these so we are ready for any situation.  Here is  a review of them: http://www.thephoblographer.com/2012/10/05/review-alienbees-b800-flash-unit/#.U0FRZ1cXLlo

 

A wonderful lighting tool we use is the Ice light. So if you see us carrying it around looking like we are using a light saber now you will know what it is.  Here is a review of this great light: http://www.thephoblographer.com/2013/08/17/review-westcott-ice-light/#.U0FTElcXLlo
