When piecing together your lens kit for photographing a wedding, a number of ideas should be running through your head in regard to the variety of imagery the clients require and the types of situations that can occur throughout the event. While it would be ideal to photograph a wedding with a single, do-it-all lens, the simple fact is that this is not typically possible.

When photographing a wedding, a variety of lens focal lengths is essential to "get the shot" from different vantage points and in different scales and compositions. Zoom lenses make this task a bit easier, due to their coverage of numerous focal lengths in a single lens barrel. A macro lens can also serve as an ideal prime portrait lens. Tamron’s recent additions to their lens lineup meet these needs.
