What’s in my Camera Bag

Tuesday’s Tips and Tricks

Now that school is officially over and the new website is up and running I couldn’t wait to blog again to finally share information, behind the scenes, and tips and tricks with you guys including the camera gear I shoot with and carry in my bag.

For starters, I always carry two cameras my Nikon d750 is my main camera that I shoot the most with and the Nikon d600 is my second camera. I’m a double strapper – meaning I strap both cameras on during weddings and most engagement sessions so I can switch back and forth between two lenses. I normally put a wide angle lens (24-70mm 2.8 or 35mm 1.4) on the d600 and my 70-200mm 2.8 on the d750 especially during the prepping shots, ceremony, and beginning of the reception.

Here’s the list of camera gear you’ll find in my rolling bag:
Nikon D750 x1
Nikon D600 x2
3 Flashpoint Flashes
Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 lens
Nikon 24-70mm 2.8 lens
Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 lens
Nikon 105mm 2.8 macro lens
Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens
Magmod Flash accessories (including: maggrid and magsphere)
Eneloop Batteries for my flashes

Extra Camera Batteries – charged
Blackrapid Double Strap

Some accessories and extra things I also carry for every wedding are:
Dental Wax – I use this to make my couple’s rings stand
Plastic Disposable Poncho – because you never know when it’s going to rain
Ibuprofens, Pepto Bismol, etc. – In case any of the people on my team get sick or even the bride when her nerves kick in.

A Wooden Hanger – to hang the bride’s dress on if there’s no other hanger around
Clear Command Hooks – because sometimes you need to hang the dress up somewhere and can’t find a hook

A step stool – because I’m 5’1″ and sometimes climbing on furniture isn’t an option

And while this may not be in my camera bag it’s something extra I carry and keep in my car in case of emergency. So don’t laugh but I bring an extra change of clothes. My second shooter ripped his pants at one of the first weddings I photographed and it served me as experience to always be safe rather than sorry. That along with clear umbrellas are my backups for the unexpected.
