My Favorite Things

I've lost count of how many weddings I have photographed in the last 4+ years, but what I do know is how much I've learned through my experiences. Whether you're a photographer, a wedding professional, or you're just curious about what to expect on a wedding day, here are just a few of my favorite things that get me through 8-10+ hours on my feet and allow me to create beautiful images. Feel free to browse and try them out for yourself!

Nikon D800/d810 This is my baby, my favorite camera, the one thing I can't live without. I'm a little obsessed.

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Lens I'll be honest - I have a hard time puting this one down. It's my all-time favorite lens.

Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet Flats The perfect, more reasonably-priced alternative to Tieks. These last all day and longer, and my feet feel like a dream the next day.

Life Factory Water Bottle This thing is ALWAYS in my car and wedding days, and ALWAYS with me during the day. I love that it's big but not too unwieldy, and glass means I don't have to worry about the harmful effects of plastic - even if I leave it in the sun. Plus, a rubber exterior means that when (not if!) I drop it, it won't break.
