Lens Line Up: Camera Gear for Wedding Days

Photographing wedding days comes down to a lot of choices: what camera body to use, which lens to use and when, and how to use ambient light. It can feel like a lot when you first start out. Not only that, sometimes it can be difficult to decide which gear to invest in first as a photographer. So today, I’m opening up my camera bag and sharing my lens line up with you! These are the lenses and equipment I use on a wedding day. I’ll be diving into why I use them and how long they’re on my camera during a typical wedding day.

Each of the lenses I carry serves a specific purpose. I love each of them as a photographer for a certain reason – and I hope that by breaking down each of my choices, you’ll feel more informed about how to build your gear list as a wedding photographer! Let’s dive into my camera bag!
