Welcome to a new series on the blog! After reviewing the results of last month’s blog reader survey we decided to introduce a new series on the blog called “What’s in Our Bag?”
When we were getting started, there were so many decisions to make. What gear do we need? What online tools are the best? What business books should we be reading? There were so many choices! Ever since we started our business we’ve always believed that it’s important to invest in equipment that will produce the best quality images for our clients. We invested tons of time researching when we could’ve been practicing our photography or building our business.
This post will introduce you to all of our digital gear and we will write posts spotlight individual pieces of our gear.
The idea came from several couples who asked about our gear, too. Maybe you’re into photography, or maybe you’re just curious about what we shoot with. We’re excited about this new series in which we’ll be talking about all of our gear, including cameras, favorite lenses, and more!
Quick note, we’re affiliates for some of the resources on this page, which means we get a small commission whenever a purchase is made using one of the links or codes here, or anywhere else on our site. It doesn’t cost you extra, in many cases, it costs you less, because we’ve been able to snag a special deal or discount. Plus, you can rest assured knowing that we only recommend products and services that we use and work for us.
