The wonder of 2.8 at 200mm
A couple months ago I got my hands on the 70-200mm 2.8 VR II and I've never looked back since. It's an expensive piece of glass and quite heavy, but it's well worth it when you want to capture moments like these.
The great thing about this lens is the compression it gives you whenever you're able to go outdoors. You can control the background unlike any other lens in it's class. The only challenge is trying to give directions to your models from so far away, but in this case, I wasn't shouting any directions.
For this shoot we went to Niagara Falls with some close friends who had family from Asia visit. We took photos of the entire family and the husband and wife to be. Going to several different locations, we enjoyed the breathtaking sights.
If you have a chance to rent out or buy the 70-200mm vr II, I highly recommend this lens. It's not cheap by any means, but I would say a good 40% of my favorite photos are shot with this lens in particular.
