Our Wedding Photography Toolbox

We believe, and we will always believe, that there is so much more to wedding photography than just nice equipment. However, that is not to say your wedding photographer shouldn’t have good equipment. Here is our list of professional equipment. Besides the equipment listed below, we have a variety of tripods, filters, and other accessories.

To get an idea of “must-have equipment” for best wedding photographers, check out the “What kind of equipment do you use?” section in our article titled Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer.
