I love using this lens while I travel or if I know I won’t have time to switch between my prime lenses. For a telephoto lens it’s sharp and focuses quickly!
I love the 70-200 because it allows me to step back from the subject and capture a great portrait. Also, if I need to shoot at 200mm carrying a 70-200 is much lighter and compact compared to a 200mm fixed lens!
Canon 85 1.2 II
I love the 85mm for portraits! The compression of the lens compared to other primes will fill the frame with more detail.
Canon 50 1.2
Hands down, my favorite go to lens! I love it because it’s one of Canon’s sharpest lenses and is overall a great portrait lens. Normally you wouldn’t want to go with a 50mm but the compression of a 1.2 helps the frame more than other 50mm’s.
Canon 85 1.8
The Canon 85mm 1.8 has always been my favorite lens to shoot headshots with. It still has a low f-stop but doesn’t break the bank!
Canon 28 1.8
I love this lens for when I want to capture a scene but don’t want to distort the edges with anything wider!
Sigma Art 35 1.4
This lens is a newer one in my camera bag! Sigma used to have a bad rep for a period of time but when I heard about how this one has a fast focus speed and is tack sharp I knew this would be a great addition. (I wasn’t wrong!) I’ve used this for engagement sessions on the beach when I wanted to capture the couple and the California backdrop!
The Canon flashes have been a staple in my bag for many years now! The recycle time is great for event shooters. The Canon 600ex also has a further spread of light for subjects a little further away.
Skylux by Westcott
The Skylux has been a staple lately with new projects. It’s a continuous light that is balanced for daylight. The Skylux has helped give my portraits a little extra fill when needed and great for adding light to the room when recording videos.
Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB
I’m picky about my digital storage! SanDisk has always been reliable for me. Shooting weddings you don’t want to keep all your images on one card but you also don’t want your card to fill up immediately.
Western Digital MyBook 4TB
All my hard drives are Western Digital. This is a company I have trusted for a while now. This drive comes in Mac or Windows, or Mac & Windows. So double check which version you are grabbing before you buy!
Black Rapid Double Slim Strap
If you’re a wedding shooter, GET THIS! I used to carry 2 cameras around my neck all day at weddings and my back was killing the next morning. This helps distribute that weight and not put stress on your neck!
