So I often get asked about the type of equipment I use. I thought I'd share some of what I use on a regular basis.

Here are the lenses I use (except for the one on my camera, the 85mm 1.4) I prefer to use Nikon lenses on my Nikon cameras. There are definitely some decent third party lenses, but I have found I get the best results using the best quality professional lenses.

AF-S VR NIKKOR 70-200mm 1:2.8G
During a wedding, this lens rarely leaves my camera. The wide aperture and lethally long zoom make for the perfect lens for capturing the intimacy of a wedding. It works wonderfully for beautiful portraits as well, capturing incredible images with amazing color and background.

This is my macro lenses, and it is the standard by which other macro lenses are measured. It's also an incredible portrait lens. Although I don't use it as much, it's amazing for detail shots!

AF-S NIKKOR 17-55mm 1:2.8G ED DX
On a D300, this is effectively a 25-85mm f/2.8 lens. It's my workhorse by far. I use this lens more often than really anything else in my bag. I use it at weddings, for wide portraits, for scene setting shots, for taking shots around home and for almost everything. If I can only carry one lens with me - this is the one.

AF NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.4 D
This lens is great for dark reception halls, and situations where I need a normal lens with great low light capabilities.

AF NIKOR 85mm 1:1.4 D
This is my primary portrait lens. It's phenomenal for it's sharpness, amazing color and depth of field - and it's low light capabilities. It's also another go-to when I'm indoors, shooting available light - when there's not much light!
