Hello! I am often asked what gear I use for my images. Today I wanted to share what equipment I bring to all of my weddings and portrait sessions!
I am a Canon girl who only shoots with prime lenses. Most of my gear was purchased on Amazon or B&H Photo. The Canon 100L is great for beautiful ring shots and shooting details.This lens is one of my favorites. Canon’s 135L is so stinking sharp. This lens is fantastic during ceremonies. The Canon 50L is a classic. Beautiful portraits and an all around solid lens. Ok so this may be my favorite lens. Canon’s TS-E 45mm allows me to create stunning artistic images. I love playing with planes of focus in my work. Canon’s 35L is a great wide-angle lens. It is pretty tact sharp and the colors it produces are always pleasing. I use this for wide shots and on the dance floor.
The Canon 5D Mark II is my back-up camera. The Canon 5D Mark III is an amazing camera! The colors it produces are stunning and it is an upgrade from the 5D Mark II in so many ways. I use a Canon 600 EX-TR Speedlite and a Blot battery pack for my on-camera flash system. I love this Jack by Jill-e designs leather rolling camera bag. It goes with my everywhere and holds all of my gear!
I use both Lexar and Sandisk 16 GB CF cards inside a super sturdy Pelican case. These Neewer video lights are easy to use. They help add an extra pop of light when needed.
