“What’s in your bag?” It’s one of the most common questions we get from other photographers. When we first started shooting, I scoured websites, reviews and looked to other photographers for guidance on what to purchase. So, to help you, I’ve created a list of all the most important lenses and must haves that we own! These are my all time favorite can’t live without items that make my workflow easier. Below I have a big ol’ list of EVERY SINGLE ITEM that I use and love. Happy shopping and please let me know if you have any questions on these items, I am happy to help!

And for the newbie just starting out, I highly recommend the Canon rebel series. Only purchase the body because the kit lenses that they sell as a package are not the greatest. I would recommend buying the body and the buying the lenses separately. I love these..
