Today I’ll be sharing what lenses I use during distinct portions of a wedding day (preparation, reception, ceremony, etc).

I’m currently out of the country until Thursday for a conference, but I’m sitting in a hotel room early in the morning, so it still feels a little like home. Except I miss Polo. He’s usually up with me in the morning, curled in between my legs as I sit in bed. I don’t think […]
