My name is Jennifer Moher and I am wedding photographer based in Ontario, Canada. I started shooting 5 years ago with the intention of being able to document human relationships. This gave me an outlet to ìpeople-watchî which further developed into a love of others love stories.
In 2011 I purchased a Nikon D700 which stayed with me until I finally took the plunge in 2013 and bought my Nikon D4.
I have bought, owned and sold many lenses for many different reasons. Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 came with my first camera. Being self-taught, this lens served its purpose well as it allowed me to learn about composition and focal length without spending a lot of money.
The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D was referenced by many people in the industry as the lens I must purchase next. Given its price tag, I agreed.
In order to get more range I purchased the Nikon 80-200mm f2.8D. Then, when I finally upgraded to full frame, I went a little purchase happy and bought the Nikon 105mm f/2.8, Nikon 135mm f/2D, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, Nikon 20-35mm f/2.8D, Nikon 45mm f/2.8D tilt shift and the following which now make up my current kit:
Nikon 35mm f/1.4G – This lens is on my body 80% of the time. I find it versatile and beautiful.
Nikon 50mm f/1.4D – I use this lens through the ceremony and the occasional portrait.
Nikon 85mm f/1.4D – I love this lens. I love how quick it focuses and the look of the images. I use this lens mainly for ceremony and photos during speeches when I need that extra bit of distance.
I love the simplicity of my kit, I am able to wear my camera around my neck, with my Nikon SB-910, and two lenses in my Kelly Moore bag. I am able to move around quickly and never feel weighed down. I still own my Nikon D700 as a backup and a Fuji X100s for travel and day to day photos. I also have a Polaroid SX-70 that I bring to the occasional wedding for something a little different!
