November 25, 2019

Photographers Christmas wish listA photographer wish list I know everyone right now is either in a food coma or out shopping and grabbing those bargains! We had an awesome Thanksgiving here at the Orrange house, we hosted and invited 30 of our closest fiends and family. This was the first year with our new kitchen and it was a huge success!!!

If you are on the hunt for for some awesome gifts for the favorite photographer in your life or you just want to TREAT YO’ SELF then you should check out a few of my favorite things list. I wish I could be like Oprah and hand out presents and give you guys a new car ….. but I can give you a 50% off discount code for  Flodesk, my favorite email system that I use to keep my clients updated on what I am up to, sales with prints or albums etc.

 “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!
