After being a photographer for almost 10 years, I often get questions from newer photographers on the best wedding photography gear. Having gear that can keep up with the demands of a wedding day while maintaining a streamlined workflow is essential to making sure we can serve our clients well. Our attention should be spent making clients feel their best – not fiddling with our settings to make sure the photos turn out okay (that should be a given).
It’s taken me years to hone in on what works for me, and believe it or not, I spent 9 years shooting on Canon before I switched over to Sony gear. I was a die hard Canon fan, but when I got my hands on Sony mirrorless, MY MIND WAS BLOWN. While this year Canon introduced their own dual-card slot mirrorless, I’m still grateful I switched to Sony and it’s paid off: my digital work is closer to my film work than every before.
Not only that, but now that I photograph weddings in both Austin AND San Francisco, I’ve also figured out what works best for my cross-country destination weddings, too (like travel light stands and styling mats – BLESS).
Over my time as a wedding photographer, I have also nailed down what additional items make my life easier and my work better, so you’ll see those included below too!!
