My camera equipment bag is a never ending “project”. I am always looking for new gadgets to try or looking to upgrade some of my equipment! A lot of people have asked what I carry with me on a wedding day, so today I’m sharing what’s in my camera bag.
At least 2 camera bodies. I prefer Canon but Nikon works just the same!
35mm lens – I use this lens a lot. A whole lot. It’s my absolutely favorite for capturing everything!
85mm lens – This is my second favorite lens to use on a wedding day!
50mm lens – I don’t use this lens as much as I should, but it’s always in my bag.
70-200mm lens – This is the perfect lens for capturing the ceremony from the back of the church or room. I also use this one for portraits sometimes.
100mm macro lens – This is my favorite lens for capturing the details and rings.
Flash triggers – Triggers allow me to connect all of the different external flash and strobes that we use during a wedding day.
External flash – We use several of these to light the room during the reception as well as throughout the day.
Batteries – I go through a ton of batteries during each wedding.
Memory cards – This is where we keep all of the photos until we’re able to back them up on our computer and hard drive.
Business cards – Just in case someone ask and to swap with new vendors.
Gary Fong dome – I met a photographer in Charleston, South Carolina years ago who told me about this piece of equipment. It has been magical ever since.
Light stands – We typically place light stands throughout the reception space. This is where our external flash go!
Umbrella – Always in my bag even if I don’t use it.
Video light – I rarely use it but I plan to play with it a lot more this year.
Strobe light setup – I really like using my Paul Buff lighting setup.
Notepad – To take notes or write down important information that I need to remember throughout the day.
Family Shot List – We work with all of our couples to prepare a family list before the wedding day.
Holdfast Money Maker – I fell in love with the idea of wearing my cameras instead of holding them the entire day.
Think tank rolling suitcase – This rolling suitcase is amazing! It holds almost everything that I need throughout the day.
Kelly Moore bag – I will wear this bag when I can’t roll my suitcase everywhere.
