What’s In My Camera Bag (Intimate Wedding + Elopement Photographer)

As a wedding photographer, you’ve got to be prepared for a multitude of situations:

  1. Time — how long is the job?
  2. Weather — is it going to rain?
  3. Disaster — what if your main body just like… stops working?

😅 Okay, the last two are a bit dramatic but weather and disaster are very real and very out of your control, so you do want to be prepared. Here is everything that is in my camera bag as an intimate wedding and elopement photographer in Upper Michigan.

NOTE: In 2021 I started making the switch to Mirrorless, so that is why I have two systems. In 2022 I’ll be entirely a Sony shooter.
