what i use

This is a list off everything I use to run my business and gear I can't live without. Everything on this list is software, education, design, and gear I truly do not think I could do my job without and trust completely. There are some affiliate links, but I would have them on this list even without it.

Gear

Go-to camera

Canon r5

This camera is a beast and I can not speak highly enough of it. Anything I need it to do, it can handle. It handles low light situations better incredibly and is extremely durable (trust me I have put it to the test)

go-to lens

canon rf 28-70 f2

I have raved about this lens to anyone who will listen. Being able to change focal length so quickly at an F2 has allowed me to diversify my galleries. I feel more creative and have the freedom to test out ideas otherwise impossible with a prime lens.

favorite for ceremonies

canon rf 70-200 f2.8

I prefer to give plenty of space when shooting ceremonies and this lens allow me to photograph intimate moments and capture emotional images, without feeling like I invaded space to do so.

second camera

canon r6

Since the R5 has a hefty price-tag, the R6 is an amazing alternative and it's what I use for my second camera while shooting. I absolutely love using it with my 70-200 when I know I won't be cropping in post as much.
