MEET Holly & Grant

When photographing wedding days, there are a few things I ALWAYS bring with me. As a wedding photographer, a lot can go wrong on wedding days! It’s always best to be as prepared as possible. Thanks Girl Scouts! So here are a few things I wouldn’t be caught without on wedding days.

  • Extra Clean SD & CF cards
  • Extra Charged batteries
  • A towel for wiping off wet bouquets (This is the most important thing EVER!)
  • First Aid kit + bandaids
  • Sewing Kit + extra clear small buttons
  • Bobby pins
  • Safety pins
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Tissues
  • Deodorant (several individual small ones)
  • Clear coat nail polish (for fixing runs in nylons!)
  • Earring backs

Hopefully some of these things gave you an idea of what to keep in your own bag for weddings so you aren’t caught unprepared!
