Hi guys!! SO I’ve been wanting to add on an educational section onto my website for awhile now and I feel like NOW is the perfect time to do it. Time and time again, I’ve been asked various questions on different aspects of my photography – so why not put it all in one place for you all to see?!
I’ve built my business from the ground up for over 6 years now and I have a whole lot of tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way that I can’t wait to share! I want to be a source of encouragement and education on what’s worked for me and what hasn’t worked, in hopes of helping some of you build your dream career. I’m a firm believer in learning from others in your industry to enhance your knowledge + improve your lil business! So, here’s to 2019 – the year of growth!
Okay, so let’s get to it.
What’s in my camera bag?
I shoot every wedding with my two main camera bodies on my HoldFast Harness:
Extra body: Canon 1D-C *great for video work, a bit too heavy for long wedding days!
Flashes: I always have two on me for all wedding days!
There’s a quick glimpse into my camera bag! Thanks for reading + be sure to follow along on Instagram if you’d like to be in the loop for more freebie education tips! xoxo
Hello! I am a photographer in Alaska. I have owned my own business for 3 years now. I saw your beautiful images and then I came upon your post about asking questions and I have a few! I just recently upgraded to a canon 5D Mark IV from a Mark 3 And also upgraded to a canon 35 mm from a sigma art 35mm. I have had such a hard time getting a clear shot with it. My images also are a hit or miss with focus and it’s sooo frustrating. My usual settings are f1.8 low ISO and always higher than 160 for my shutter speed. I know it depends on the type of light you Shoot in but what are your go to settings to get such crisp shots?
What is your primary lens? I also have a canon 50mm 1.8 that I use occasionly. What would you suggest for my next lens? Also, I am trying to find new presets to work with this year and I love the crisp but yet golden color in your edits. What do you use for your presets?
Thanks so much!
Thanks for this sneak peak into your bag! It was very informative 😊
Hi Kayla!!!I’ve been following your work for a while now and what can I say, your photos are AMAZING!!! I recently started photography and I am so excited to be shooting my first wedding in June. I don’t have the budget to buy a new, full frame camera just yet so I have to use my canon rebel T5 for a while. I was thinking about renting a extra body and a extra lens because I currently use my canon 50mm 1.4 for all my photos and it works okay but want something different for this wedding. Should I rent the sigma 35mm 1.4 or the sigma 50mm 1.4 for this wedding?
