On photography forums - its not the camera, its the person using it! Ansel Adams can do it with any point and shoot! Said every photographer
On wedding/bride forums - WOW my photographer is so good that he came to my wedding with a pair of S95 - said from a bride NEVER!
But they also never got on a forum and say " My photographer turned up with a pair of D4's", either. They'll usually say, if your lucky, "the photos are beautiful, he/she made me feel so special" The guy who rushes across the room to comment on my huge 70-200 is not the person I'm trying to impress at a reception.
But I do agree strongly that how you appear to future clients during a reception is very important. I just think that dress and attitude trump camera gear every time to a certain extent. Someone dressed really sharp with an XPro1 versus a guy in black jeans witha Canon 1Dx. I know who'd get more respect from my clients. I just don't see how a client would even notice whether I have an E-M5 with a big flash on it over a D4 with a big flash on it.
Anyway. Ive just finished packing my 7kg (about 18lbs) (in total) of gear for todays wedding. I'll probably enjoy a drink with the 4 other brides we've photographed that we know will be there.
