The wedding industry is a monster of a consumer industry and when it comes to photography, there are plenty of items out there marketed towards the needy wedding photographer. Phil and Sara of PS Photo Stuff dive into their wedding photography kits to give you a candid look at the gear they find most useful when shooting weddings. Perhaps your wedding photography kit looks similar.
When I first began shooting weddings, I was very much focused on the gear I was using and was suffering from the dreaded GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) greatly. Over the course of about a year or two, I had accumulated a decent collection of equipment – a good amount of which is left in the studio to collect dust these days. Had I known I didn’t need to buy into every gimmicky and trendy piece of equipment that I saw whoever the up and coming Instagram success of the time using, maybe I would have focused less on my equipment and more on enjoying the images I was capturing with what I had.
Phil and Sara from PS Photo Stuff give a candid look into their personal wedding photography arsenal, which you may find helpful if you’re putting together a wedding photography kit of your own. In the short video the two reveal their cameras and lenses of choice, as well as the flashes and other off camera lighting they use.
