This is something that every photographer has to have… a camera bag. Everyone has their own individual needs and preferences but sometimes it helps to hear a review from someone else to help in your search for the perfect bag! My search started years ago and I actually found a bag that worked GREAT but I was so hard on it that the fabric wore out and the strap broke after year two.
My problem was that I really LOVED that bag but I didn’t want to buy another one because I needed something that was going to LAST! So I searched and I searched but I couldn’t find anything big enough with the options I wanted. You see, I have found my engagement session bag already. I use the ONA CAPRI as my eshoot bag and I love it! The issue is that it isn’t big enough for weddings.
I needed a bag for wedding days that will hold the following:
So during WPPI, I walked past our good friends at Kelly Moore and I spotted my old bag that I LOVED…. only it was in a different material!! HOORAY!!! It was the material that my LIBBY computer bag was in and that bag has lasted FOREVER! I was so excited that my dream bag was available in a different fabric option and I bought it! I’m in love.
This is the KELLY BOY bag! That’s right, it’s for men…. not women. But you know what, who cares! I love it!! And this is why! :

Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
