the 50mm challenge

So I decided to see if i could shoot an entire wedding with one lens. The 50mm f/1.8
beautiful lens that i love to use! I wanted to know if it was possible to get through an entire wedding using it. I am proud to say that for about 90% of the wedding i was able to use only that lens and test it out. Al though I have had this lens for over a year I haven't been able to take it on a test like this wedding. I am so in love with this lens and look forward to buying the 50mm f/1.4 soon. Okay for all of you non photographers I look forward to buying a better version of this lens. I was impressed with its optics and lack of flare with harsh lighting from the sun and flash units. Here are my favorite images from my 50mm challenge with Rachael and David at the Corona Yacht Club in Coachella.
I was able to capture this little mans steps on camera. He just started to walk days before the wedding and i was the one honored enough to capture it all

 I should remain this picture to the palm tree challenge. I was literally pushing a palm tree out of my way while trying to balance a flash and my camera. Tried not to be too distracted by the fact that i had palm tree branches stabbing me in the back of my neck. fun shot but wasn't the easiest to take.

Lastly the intimacy this couple showed towards each other was amazing! I loved how each of them showed intense love for each other through out this day. The look on each other's faces as they looked into each other's eyes was beyond words. Nothing could describe a love like this.
This was an amazing opportunity to share their wedding day
