I shoot with 2 Canon R6 bodies. These cameras BLEW MY MIND. The eye auto focus and the quick speed focus in low light are insane … need I say more? Ok well, I liked them so much I bought a third one as a back up.

The Good Stuff
Okay, here’s a list of my absolutely favourite things to have with me on a wedding day. This is the good stuff that will set you apart from other wedding togs.
The biggest essential when shooting weddings is my trusty bumbag, full of SD cards, batteries and snacks (no one wants a hangry Kirsty).
My harness by Desired Leather is so comfy and seriously cool. I’m living my Lara Croft life in it most of the time. I bought the Narrow personalised Dual Camera harness in brown, size small.
SD card holder (water resistant)
SD storage on a wedding day is SO IMPORTANT. This little case stays in my bumbag. Clear cards on one side, used cards on the other (I’m very organised with my SD cards so I’ve even labelled which side is which.
This case is water resistant and has a clip if you wanted to clip to your harness you can.
The speaker that clips onto your harness
I’m all about creating good vibes and having fun, so blaring out some music to help my couples and groups relax while we do photos is super important. Also, who doesn’t want to dance around with a mini boombox attached? This handy JLB Clip speaker can be attached to my bumbag or harness.
The Phone/ Tissue/ Tic tac Holder of Dreams that clips onto your harness
My bumbag’s a little full and I want easy access to things, so I found this awesome pouch that clips onto my harness at the top. It has tissues in (for the running nose or teary eye – top tip, whip out the tissues asap for your couple/ their parents etc), and I keep Tic tac’s in this (top tip give to the couple before they have their ceremony – yup this isn’t my first rodeo gang), and it can fit my phone in and some anti-bac for covid days.
The Lens Pouch that can clip onto your bumbag
I love switching between my 50 & 85 on a wedding day, and man it was annoying having to run back to my camera bag every time i wanted to do a switch over, those days are no more now with this handy camera lens pouch that fits perfectly on my bum bag.
