What’s in my photography bag? ~ Quad Cities Wedding Photographer

March 8, 2018

Hi, all! Today I want to tell you a little more about the tools I use to capture images. This is an extensive list, but remember, I have spent years acquiring these tools.

I get my equipment from a local camera store, The Camera Corner in Davenport, Iowa. Though visiting a brick and mortar store is not as convenient as merely ordering online, the customer service, troubleshooting, and assistance is well worth the drive time. I also use B&H and Amazon for occasional photography needs.

Below are the cameras, lenses, and tools I carry with me for any shoot, as well as the tools I use in-studio.

The world of cameras and lenses and accessories can be confusing and overwhelming. Do your research. Ask a lot of questions. Read reviews. And perhaps most importantly- remember that fancy devices don’t make the picture. Spend just as much money on education and training as equipment. It will pay off!
