Looking for a new DSLR body for wedding photography? Whether you’re a veteran looking to stay competitive at the cutting edge of digital photography or an aspiring wedding photographer looking for their first camera, the sheer number of options to choose from is daunting. Fortunately, the decision making process is much easier if you know what you’re looking for—it’s all about striking a balance between low noise, high ISO and fast shutter speeds. Since you’ll be shooting indoors, you want a higher ISO which will allow you to shoot better in low light. However as noise increases with ISO, you also want larger pixels and larger sensors. This means that when it comes to the best DSLRs for wedding photographers, you have to go with full frame DSLRs. Here are our picks for the best DSLRs for wedding photography.
