What’s In My Camera Bag?!
I have 2 of these cameras and will use both during weddings. For one hour engagement sessions, I’ll usually only use one camera.
The A7iii has dual slots so my photos are being saved on both SD cards at the same time. It’s also mirrorless, which makes it really light!
I started off with the 50mm lens and loved it! However I did want to try out a wider lens, so I decided to invest in the 35mm. 100% worth it, it’s my current favorite lens! Besides that I will use my 85mm at weddings.
I have their single harness and dual harness. I love both! They are very comfortable to wear for a full 10 hour wedding day. I love that the single harness still lets your camera sit on your hip.
This is my first flash and I absolutely love it! I’ll have a blog on how to use it soon so be on the lookout!
Make sure you buy the right model for your camera. The “S” after the name stands for Sony. If you have a Canon, you want the model that ends with a “C”.
I’ve tried a couple of flash diffusers and these two are by far my favorite. They are very light and so easy to put on. It comes with a magnetic grip that you wrap around your flash and then when you want to throw on your bounce or sphere you just place it on top. Due to the magnets you can move around your flash and it won’t fall off.
This is the exact battery that my Godox flash uses. I’ll charge them all up before a wedding and have them available to use if my first battery runs out before the end of the evening.
This is my go to SD card due to its memory and download speed. When you’re looking for SD cards, make sure to look at both! GB is the amount of storage on the SD card, and MB/S is how fast you can take continuous shots.
There are a lot of great cases out there, this is the one I use! It holds twelve SD cards, is shock and water resistant, and is only ten dollars!
If you’ve been following me for a little (or just read my about me page) you might have seen that I went to college for film editing and was a film editor. I’m mentioning that now because I have gone through a lot of different types of hard drives while working on projects. I still can look back on moments 5+ years ago where my hard drive crashed and I lost hours and hours of work (it was very stressful!). Out of all the hard drives that I have tried LaCie has been the most reliable! I highly recommend having a backup for your main hard drive. Trust me, the extra cost is worth not losing all of your files.
A few other items that I use & love!
These screen protectors are just like your phone screen protectors. It will help keep your screen from not getting all scratched up.
This link takes you to the “Sony Alpha Filter DSLR Lens Diameter 55mm” which fits my Sony 35mm lens. Make sure to check the size of the protector and your lens before purchasing. For instance my Sony 85 mm lens uses a 67mm size protector.
This camera is so much fun to bring to any session. I recently added an option to purchase instax photos with your sessions and clients love it! It makes the sessions really special for them since they get printed photos right away!
