Earlier this year I decided to invest in a Fuji X-T1 and in June, I took it with me to Natalie and Sam’s wedding.

Below are a couple of shots taken with the 56mm f1.2 lens.

Overall, I’m really impressed with the Fuji X-T1 and the 56mm f1.2 lens. On no occasion did I have a flashgun attached and with each shot, the automatic white balance did a great job.

The fact it wasn’t so bulky also meant I was able to capture nice candid shots, that I probably wouldn’t have been able to if I was shooting with a massive DSLR.

On reflection of this, I’m thinking I may have to invest in another body for future weddings.
