We are proud to share the article written at The Phoblographer recently.
Wedding photographers need bags for all the gear they take with them to a wedding. The Phoblographer has picked 5 of their favourite camera bags here.
Regardless of your status, there is one thing about wedding photographers that’s a given; they potentially have a lot of different gear that they need to take with them to a shoot, from cameras and lenses to lighting and other accessories. This requires a solid bag, or bags, to accommodate and protect such a large kit while at the same time remaining easy to transport and access. Today, we wanted to highlight some of our top camera/gear bag picks with wedding photographers in mind. If you have a big photography kit or a small photography kit, it makes no difference. We will have options below that appeal to a wide variety of wedding photographers with varying amounts of gear. So, if you are ready. let’s get into it…
Why you should consider it for your wedding photography: The WANDRD PRVKE is an excellent choice for wedding photographers, especially destination wedding photographers because it can handle just about anything you throw at it. It has enough room to handle a modest kit including multiple camera bodies and lenses (size dependent, of course), and thanks to its rolltop design you can carry a couple speedlights, a windbreaker, extra clothes, snacks, or whatever else you may need to make it through a long day. It also has room for a laptop, tablet and other important accessories.
Why you should consider it for your wedding photography: The Peak Design Everyday Backpack 30L is an excellent choice for those who are set on a backpack style bag but who are looking for something a little more stylish and fashionable than a more outdoor looking bag like the WANDRD bag that we just mentioned.
Why you should consider it for your wedding photography: If you are looking for a bag to wear around while you are at the wedding site, chances are you won’t want to be running around with a backpack on. So a messenger bag, complete with room enough for an extra lens or two and some accessories are a great option and this is one of our favorites.
What we had to say about the Vinson Messenger Bag in our review:
“There’s a whole lot to love here with the BlackForest Bags Vinson messenger bag. It’s built well, can hold a lot of gear, is surprisingly sturdy, has a suitcase handle, and when you compare it to other camera bags it’s also available at a very affordable price point. Personally speaking, it’s got to be one of my favorite messenger bags simply due to the durability combined with the fashionable looks. There are more comfortable straps out there, but that can be fixed on your own."
Why you should consider it for your wedding photography: If you just want a bag that can carry your kit, but that you can just take off and set down while you are actually working (and you aren’t wanting a backpack) then the Peak Design Everyday Tote could be just what you are looking for.
Why you should consider it for your wedding photography: If you’re a wedding photographer that wants to carry a ton of gear with more style than any of the options mentioned previously than this is a bag for you to consider. Like the tote, it will work well to put down while you are actually shooting, but will still look good and be functional if you do decide to wear it while working.
