It was so much fun experiencing Bermuda with this crew! Courtney & Matt planned their wedding to perfection. It took place at Grotto Bay Resort in Hamilton, Bermuda. The hotel grounds were gorgeous. There’s a natural cave on the property that is open to guests for swimming.
We went on a private charter from Rising Son Cruises, which was incredible! We got to jump off the boat, swim & snorkel in the warm clear water.
The wedding was gorgeous and I’m so honored to have been a part of it!
Here is my complete collection of camera equipment!
Canon 5D Mark III Body
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L-Series Lens – The best lens ever! I could shoot an entire wedding or campaign on this lens. This is my “everyday lens” and is on my camera 95% of the time. It’s a bit of an investment but totally worth it! Get it with extras HERE!
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens – This Canon lens is a cheaper alternative to the f/1.2 listed above. Still great quality, I used this lens for years before investing in the L series!
Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT Flash – I have 2! This is perfect for an off camera flash setup. The flashes connect to each other via bluetooth and fire at the same time to create extra light seamlessly! One flash will attach to your camera body and the other will attach to a light stand. I use a studio light stand with a flash connector.
Backblaze – All of my hard drives are constantly backed up to the cloud to make sure everything is protected!
Rechargeable Batteries with Charger – On a complete charge, these hold a lot of charge, sometimes just one charge can get me through the entire day! Rechargeable batteries will save you money and help the environment Once you have the charger, you can buy extra batteries that can be charged while you’re using the first round.
Backpack – This lightweight backpack holds all of my equipment and is perfect for shoot days and traveling. Plus, it fits under a plane seat so it makes the perfect carry-on!
Wedding Fanny Pack – I wear this every wedding day! It’s perfect for holding my phone, memory cards, extra batteries, hair-ties and any other go-to items I need while shooting!
Earasers – Cannot live without! I always have these ear plugs with me at weddings. At receptions, the band and DJ can get pretty loud and sometimes the best angle is right next to the biggest speaker! Earasers are specially made to block out noises that are too loud (blaring music) while allowing you to hear conversations clearly.
Holdfast Gear Double Camera Strap – This strap is worn like a backpack which evenly distributes the weight of two cameras. It can also be worn comfortably with one camera!
It has been a dream of mine for YEARS to see Pipe Masters in person, so being there on the beach was literally a DREAM COME TRUE! We saw Joel Parkinson retire after an amazing career and Gabriel Medina win the world title, and then go back in the water for the final heat to win Pipe Masters. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to see this event and I’d love to make it back again in the future!
I had so much fun exploring with my friend Bailey and capturing the cutest bathing suits from Benoa Swim!
