  • AA Batteries

-I always carry extras on hand as I need them for my video lights and speedlights

-I love this bag, but only for shorter weddings/engagement sessions. It’s super cute, but sadly isn’t the most comfortable. However, it’s incredibly spacious and has a ton of great compartments inside.

-This is my go to bag for traveling. It holds all of your camera gear and your laptop/Ipad. I do find it to be pretty comfortable as well.

-This is my go-to camera bag for weddings. While it isn’t the cutest to look at, it’s SO comfortable on my shoulders. It is also very spacious and fits all my gear nicely. If you are shooting weddings over 6 hours, I’d definitely go with this bag.

  • Business Cards

-If I get a chance at a wedding, I’ll try to exchange information with the other vendors. This way I can tag them in blog posts, network, etc.

So, that covers it! That’s what I take with me on a wedding day!

Until next time,
