What’s in my Camera Bag

One of the top questions I get asked is what’s in my bag. So today, I’m sharing the full list of what I usually have with me on a wedding day and some of what I use after the wedding too! When it’s a busier weekend and I am double or triple booked, I simply rent more equipment from a local camera shop when needed.
