The wedding photography kit
Updated: Aug 6, 2019
In the wedding world it is standard practice to find out what kit is being used on the wedding day. What type of car is being used for the hired vehicle; what technology the videographer uses; and of course what equipment the photographer will be using. Whilst it may seem odd, because for most other photography jobs it is not discussed, this is a reassurance that the money is being well spent and that standards are going to be high. So on that basis here is a list of camera equipment that I am currently using.
The main camera is a Nikon D750, which comes with 4 Nikon lenses which are; 14-24mm lens f2,8; 50mm lens f1.8; 24-70mm lens f2.8; and the 70-200mm lens f2.8. This comes with a Nikon SB-800 flashgun, tripod and all the appropriate amount of batteries, spare batteries and memory cards. Most of this can be carried in one large bag and I can confirm that it is heavy! I also have a back-up camera and other lenses for emergencies. Not forgetting of course, the drone, which is a Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter, and this is also packed away in an equally large and heavy bag.
Suffice to say that photography equipment is pretty amazing and is ideal for wedding work and if the photographer is looking weary through the day, it is likely to be the effects of the weight of the cameras, rather than any fizz that he will not have taken anyway!
