July 7, 2015

    Awesome post! I totally agree about the 50! I could easily shoot a whole wedding with that thing.

  2. Leah says:

    Great article Natalie! I love my 85mm, my macro, and 35mm. So tough to chose just 3 🙂

  3. Lauren C says:

    Loved reading through this post! Ever since getting my 85 I have really neglected my 50 but this post makes me want to give it some more love 🙂

  4. Erin Wheeler says:

    Love this post and especially love the 50mm- my favorite little lens! 🙂

  5. Emily says:

    Yep, the 50mm is my favorite too! Sometimes I have to remind myself to give the other lenses in my bag a chance.

  6. Such great advice Natalie! I’ve fallen more and more in love with my 85 mm this year so it’d be hard to go without but the 70-200 would cover that too! So hard to choose just 3! 🙂

  7. Great post, Natalie! Our three lenses would be Sigma 50mm/1.4 Art, 35mm and 85mm 🙂

  8. Abby Grace says:

    This is an AWESOME post, girl! I would love to see a collection of your 70-200 images- I have the same lens by Canon and, to be honest, it’s my least favorite lens in my camera bag. I need an excuse to fall in love with it!

  9. Juliet says:

    Before I even read your post, I said:
    35mm; 70-200mm; and 100mm MACRO.

    Every since switching to a Sigma 35 ART, I am obsessed with it and my 50 is collecting dust. I just love a good 35mm…. especially in a small space. I think if I had to choose 3, those would be it! great post!

  10. I find the honestly and simplicity if you blogs so inspiring. These are actually the exact same 3 lenses I carry on weddings. Maybe one day I’ll master them all as you have!

  11. Dilia says:

    I absolutely love my 50 mm. It’s my go to lens!

  12. Nicole says:

    I think I’m in on the 85mm, my macro, and 35mm too!

  13. Sherri says:

    I love my 50mm and my 70-200 too! My third would be my 35mm.

  14. I loved reading through this, all three of these lenses are on my short list for purchase! Glad to know I’m in the right direction!

  15. Brea says:

    This is such a great post and a tough question! I think I’d say 50, 100macro, and 16-35. 50 for most stuff, 100mm macro for macro shots, tight portraits and some range for ceremonies (though obviously I’d prefer the 70-200 but if I HAD to pick only three, I’d need a wider lens) and then the 16-35 for dancing shots (never leaves my camera for the reception once dancing starts!) and awesome dramatic wides 🙂

  16. Fantastic post, love your writing style and thank you for sharing 🙂

  17. Emily says:

    Great post! I am in the market for a 70-200 f/2.8 and I was wondering if you have used the Tamron version of this lens before?

  18. Jenny says:

    Love this post! It is so nice to see what other Nikon shooters rely on. I still haven’t been able to justify purchasing the 70-200 mainly because it is so bulky to carry around all day…but I absolutely love our 50mm 1.4 and 1.8. Can’t survive without them 🙂

    I carry a small camera bag & its 55.300 on camera & 50mm in bag all Nikon ,have macro lens & 17 . 55mm but they are for certain jobs
