What equipment should a wedding photographer have?
I am often getting asked by new photographers, What equipment should a wedding photographer have?
I decided to make a 20 minute video, going through what equipment I take with me on the day. I have to admit I have a large amount of equipment with me on the day, and my opinion has always been I would rather have too much than not enough.
If you have any questions at all, please just leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I love helping photographers, as I know how lost I was when I first started.
Here is a break down of what I use. Please note, some of this equipment has changed slightly from when I recorded the video attached below:
- 2 x Canon 5dmkiii camera bodies
- 1 x Canon 7d camera body
- Canon 24-70mm ii f2.8L lens
- Canon 70-200mm f2.8L lens
- Canon 100mm f2.8 lens
- Canon 135mm f2.8L lens
- Canon 50mm f1.4 lens
- Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens
- 2 x YONGNUO YN600EX-RT
- YN-E3-RT Wireless Speedlight Transmitter
- A range of other accessories such as a light meter, flash adapters, modifiers etc
