What I Bring With Me on Wedding Days

FILED IN: Weddings

I always love seeing what other photographers bring with them on wedding days. I feel like every photographer has different items/gear that they love to bring to a wedding with them that they find super helpful. So in the spirit of being purely nosey and curious myself, I’m going to share everything that I bring with me to a wedding!

  7. Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens (my favorite reception lens)
  8. Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens (I like to bring this lens as a backup to my 50mm 1.2 just in case something were to happen to the lens during the wedding)
