Shannon, this is stunning! I have a question - how did you get the image so sharp? I love it!! I see you shoot with a 20D. What lenses do you use? I'm thinking of buying a new lens to shoot weddings with. #936227

I used a 24-70L 2.8 and an alien bee strobe with large softbox for this shot.
This is not my typical kind of shooting. If you see my gallery, I'm a studio child photographer, but had the chance to try something new and I went on location. I shoot out of my home and this lens length is perfect for a small space. I get razor sharp images every shot with that lens and my bees.

For weddings, I shoot a 24-70, a 70-200, and the occasional super wide and fish eye. My favorite lens for weddings is the 70-200 because it does better for those photojournalistic shots. However, it doesn't work well for an only all day lens because your spaces could be too small to use it. The combination of both lenses each on their own body is my preference. #6024554

Nice use of fill flash for this evening photo. Very good example for others to follow. #6025118
