I recently had one of my mentoring girls come along to two weddings that I shot! She has been interested in how a wedding day unfolds for a photographer and needed some experience with it before she takes on weddings of her own, so I welcomed her along the journey! I was packing the car when she got to my house and was telling her about all the things I bring with me on a wedding day. She seemed blown away and said “man, I need to take notes!” haha! It was a good thing I brought some of those things she had never thought about, because she needed them later in the evening! So here’s a list of what I bring (and why) when I shoot weddings!
So this may seem like a LOT or some may think its weird, but truly, I have learned ‘what to bring’ from shooting weddings without these things and realizing how badly I needed them! Anela was amazed by these things and vowed to always bring them with her when she starts shooting weddings. I’m sure she’ll come up with a list of other things for herself too, just like anyone. What do you bring when you shoot weddings?!
Thanks for these shots, Anela! :)
