What is our favorite lens and why

What is our favorite lens and why


Ever wonder what our favorite lens is or what your next lens purchase should be?

There is a consistent theme to the most common questions on our groups, our page, in our email, and on our blog. See if you can spot it. 

"What lens did you use to shoot this?" "I'm looking for a new lens, what is the best one?" "What lenses do you need for weddings?" "What lens is best for (fill in the blank) sessions?" 

They're straightforward questions with convoluted answers. There are so many lenses with lots of price points and a lot of this depends on what you intend to shoot and your budget.   So instead of just guessing, we are here to give our thoughts on the most common professional lenses. 

We go over the (many) lenses in our bags and outline what we use them for, which we love, which we can't live without, which we wish we would have done something different, and our feelings on which are critical to have for different sessions. 

Check out our discussion below.


Here are links to the lenses we talk about above!  

The links below are affiliate links, which means if you purchase one we get a small commission. However, we use these lenses on a daily basis and in your business and wouldn't suggest them if we didn't love them and highly recommend them.
