Read the Sony A7ii wedding photography review here: http://fenglongphoto.com/the-sony-a7ii-wedding-photography-review/

Taking a quick break from editing and shooting weddings to write up another quick geeky gear review blog post! I’ve previously reviewed the Sony A7R – the R version of Sony’s new full frame mirrorless camera system – a few times here on the blog, click these links to read about my experiences using the Sony A7R for wedding photography here and then the follow up blog post a few months later here and the final mid-year update using the A7R at more weddings. You will notice that my conclusion is basically it’s possible, but it’s not very fun to use the A7R for something as fast paced as wedding photography. The autofocus of the R is pretty slow, the shutter is noisy and slow, but the size benefits and just anticipating that the camera was going to be slow meant that it was somewhat workable. The thing was, I just didn’t end up doing enough pure landscape photography to really justify having this beautiful 36-megapixel camera that only halfway works at my main interest: wedding photography. The A7R headed to the big camera land in the sky: eBay, where another lucky person got a great deal on a lightly used A7R. The newly announced A7 version 2 (ILCE-A7M2) was getting good reviews and having been out for a while I felt more confident jumping into the second iteration of the A7, which is probably the camera I should have bought the first time with it’s faster autofocus and lower megapixel count. I took a quick trip into New York City and headed over to B&H Photo to check out the cameras in person. I ended up getting the Sony A7ii along with the Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 OSS lens after trying the 24-70mm as well, but from a wedding photography perspective I will be using this as my second camera and I will probably have something like the 85mm on my Canon 5D Mark III, so the wider lens will compliment it nicely. You can click this quick blog post I put up with some first images taken with the camera wandering around the streets of New York City, but now we’ll start digging into my impressions using the Sony A7ii at an actual Indian wedding!

Trang | New York City Vietnamese Casual Fashion Shoot

New York Wedding Photography by Zachary Long http://www.FengLongPhoto.com/

A couple of weeks ago my friend Trang, who you may remember as the florist at Rosa and Bobby's Atlanta Vietnamese wedding, was visiting New York City for a mini vacation so we met up one day to hang out and suffer in front of my camera on a casual model/fashion shoot! It was actually a perfect day weather-wise to be out in the city as Spring weather was here (unlike this week's rather cold chill for mid-April), so we met up at Union Square before wandering around the area by NYU before grabbing some lunch at Momofuku. After a nice lunch, and enying Trang's choice of the cold noodles which looked amazing, we headed a bit uptown so I could run a quick errand near Times Square. Since we were in Midtown anyways we walked over to Bryant Park and the New York Public Library to see a bit more of the cultural side of New York City rather than just the touristy areas of Times Square.

[Blog] Dilshad & Sabir Engagement | Cooking Class & Piedmont Park | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photographer

As has been the theme here on the blog, I'm finally getting around to posting a bunch of shoots from the end of 2014 that never went up earlier for one reason or another with all the traveling from New York back down to Atlanta. Even though today finally feels like Spring in New York up here, this engagement session was a hot one - and not just because of the two people involved! Ok corny jokes aside about a hot couple and cooking, we had a blast at this Atlanta engagement session starting off the day at the Irwin Street Cooking School inside the Irwin Street Market before heading over to Piedmont Park for some formal evening and night time photos and finally hitting the Jackson Street Bridge. The cooking session was super fun where we baked a cake in the cooking school's kitchen before changing and heading over to Piedmont Park for some classic engagement photos. We started with some greenery and then were lucky enough to catch a super colorful sunset that perfectly complimented Dilshad's amazing traditional dress for the evening photos. The final stop of the night was some formal wear photos at the Jackson Street Bridge for the classic Atlanta downtown skyline photo. Enjoy these amazing Atlanta engagement photos!

[Blog] Hang & Bory Pre-Wedding Bridal Session | Atlanta Vietnamese Cambodian Wedding Photographer

Throwback Thursday! #TBT ! Haha, just kidding! But I am definitely reminiscing about the much warmer weathers from this amazing pre-wedding bridal shoot from before we moved to New York! And yes, I do other weddings besides just photographing Indian Weddings ;). Back in June of last year down in Atlanta I had the honor of being the photographer for Hang and Bory's Vietnamese/Cambodian wedding, and before the big day (which is a whole separate blog post of amazing photos), we did a pre-wedding shoot with the entire bridal party and some portraits of the bride and groom. I'm not quite sure how these photos are free of sweat, because even though the bridesmaids are looking beautiful and the groomsmen handsome in every photo... we were drenched in sweat and running for shade in between each shot! June is definitely the middle of Summer, and an Atlanta Summer is no joke! Thank you thank you thank to the entire wedding party of doing all of these photos for the bride and groom, keeping the energy high, looking amazing, and contributing so much to make sure Hang and Bory had an awesome experience for their wedding. Let's do it again!!! =D

[Blog] Sony A7ii First Test Review + New York City Time-Lapse

I really tried to like the Sony A7r for wedding photography, I did! You can read the initial Sony A7r for Weddings review blog post here and then the follow up here, where I talk about using the Sony A7r at a few Indian weddings and Vietnamese weddings as a second camera body. While it's a great landscape camera, not so much in a dimly let reception venue as a wedding camera. Well, of course Sony does offer the A7 which DOES fit that niche, but I was blinded by the high megapixel count of the -R rather than looking for what I actually need =). When Sony announced the new updated A7 Version 2 (A7ii) I knew that I needed to finally make the switch if I really wanted to use this camera for weddings. A few weeks ago we posted the A7r on eBay, and after it sold I swung by the B&H Superstore in New York City and picked up the Sony A7ii with the new Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 OSS lens. Just playing with the camera in the store, I knew that as a wedding photographer, this was the camera I should have purchased all along.

[Blog] Hang & Bory | Atlanta Vietnamese Cambodian Wedding Photography

More pre-move to New York weddings to finally get around to putting up on the blog! This post is part 2 of Hang & Bory's Vietnamese/Cambodian wedding celebration, which was the actual wedding itself and the reception at Vien Huong in Atlanta. The wedding day itself was nonstop events with a morning ceremony and evening reception. In the morning we started off with a traditional tea ceremony at home before we headed to Vien Huong in Atlanta for the reception. Tons of fun and laughs were had all throughout the day with the bride, groom, bridal party, family, and friends in attendance. Enjoy these amazing wedding photos!

[Blog] Westin Perimeter Atlanta Indian Wedding

Another awesome Indian wedding from last Summer at the Atlanta Westin Perimeter! This was from after we had moved to New York over the Summer, so it was a quick flight back down to Atlanta from JFK for this fun-filled Atlanta Indian Wedding. The Westin Perimeter is a great venue and a ton of fun was had with some pretty epic photos!

Dan came out today to fix our flat tire in Downtown Atlanta. Very easy to work with and kept in constant communication about price and expectations before he arrived. Thanks for coming out and installing the new tire!
