For Brides: If you request pre-ceremony pictures, I will bring my HUGE emergency kit and leave in the back of my SUV. Here’s just a few things I keep in it: Tylenol, allergy pills, tissues, pens, paper, bobby pins, nail clippers, tweezers, deodorant, vaseline, wet wipes, baby powder, sunscreen, disposable razors, lip gloss, hairspray, chapstick, eyedrops, tums, Pepto, a couple of phone chargers, lint rollers, bleach pens, wrinkle releaser, safety pins, clear nail polish, q-tips, super glue, straight pins, scissors, and even extra earring backs and necklace clasps.
Seriously, if you forget it I probably have it. All the medicine is travel-sized and individually wrapped. I also have a bridal hanger and 10 bridesmaid/groomsman hangers should we need them.
Lots of preparation goes into wedding planning on my end. Besides cleaning equipment, charging batteries and packing up, I print out your wedding details questionnaire and formals list, and attach them to my super awesome clipboard that has pens, scissors, paper, a mini paper fan etc inside.
For equipment: I bring my Canon 5d Mark III, my 100mm macro lens if my bride wants detail shots, my 16-35 wide angle lens, my beautiful prime lenses, 50 and 135, along with 2 zoom lenses, one mid-range and the other a long range. I bring 2 speedlights if I need them for the reception, along with a LED Light.
