just getting into this business, got a canon t2i dslr camera with a 50mm f1.8 lens (for now) lens...i am shooting my first wedding on the 19th of this month. I've shot before with a friend but i want to branch out on my own... could use any techniques you guys would suggest...thanks....

I've experienced overheating issues with that camera and you might want to take that into consideration. Having your friend as a second shooter is ideal. I would also suggest the 70-200mm 2.8 lens for tighter shots during the ceremony if you can't get close. The Manfrotto video monopod is also a great tool to use. The 1.8 is great for low light during the reception. Lastly, bring extra batteries and have fun.

thank you....i experienced overheating the last wedding i did, it was a catholic wedding and the ceremony was long, it was my second longest wedding ever..hahaha...the one coming up is going to be 20 mins max at the beach, i do have a mono-pod (not Manfrotto) and a total of two batteries....the lens might have to wait until i am able to get some $$$...thanks again for the reply.

You really need to consider getting a proper camera & lenses for wedding videography, I recommend picking up a used vg10 w/ kit lens, 50mm & the tamron 28-70 2.8 zoom....until you can afford something better.
