If you’re in the wedding industry, then you know that it is absolutely booming right now. There are tons of covid brides and grooms that haven’t been able to publicly share their love and they are looking to (and willing to pay a tremendous amount to do so).
In essence, it’s a great time to be doing wedding photography. However, if you weren’t doing wedding photography before the pandemic, it’s also a great time to start doing so.
Regardless of where you’re at in your wedding photography journey, you’re going to need these essential wedding photography accessories that will make sure you stand out to your clients.
Each of the highlighted wedding photography accessories on this list are made by Holdfast. So, if you’ve never checked them out before, it’s a great time to do so. They have all kinds of leather camera accessories perfect for event photography.
MoneyMaker Camera Harness
Other than your actual camera (and maybe your lenses), a camera harness is one of the most important pieces of wedding photography gear you’ll ever own. Not only do camera harnesses protect your most expensive equipment from harm, but they also ensure that you can be hands free when you need to be.
My favorite wedding photography camera strap is the MoneyMaker Camera Harness. The MoneyMaker harness is perfect for wedding photographers because it allows you to carry two cameras at once, each of which hang to one side of your torso while you’re wearing the harness.
The MoneyMaker is also really comfortable and practical. It is made of leather and stainless steel d-rings, which means that it will conform to your body the more often you wear it. It also means that you don’t need to worry about getting caught out in the rain since steel doesn’t rust. The MoneyMaker is also comfortable because, unlike other harnesses, it isn’t one size fits all. It comes in small, medium and large to fit almost every photographer.
But, what really makes the MoneyMaker stand out when it comes to wedding photography accessories is the fact that it genuinely looks nice. A lot of times it feels as if the companies making wedding photography accessories completely forget about the fact that photographers need to look presentable at these shoots.
The MoneyMaker has such a classic look, so you don’t need to worry about it going out of style. It also comes in a variety of muted colors, like tan, black, and chestnut, so that you can customize your look a little bit.
Finally, the MoneyMaker comes with a lifetime guarantee. So, while the initial $230 price tag may seem like a lot, you’re investing in your future.
SD Memory Card Wallet
I’ll be completely upfront, the SD Memory Card Wallet isn’t one of my absolutely essential wedding photography accessories. But, I had to include it on this list because I was absolutely shocked at how much I loved shooting with it for the first time.
The SD Memory Card Wallet does exactly what the name implies… it holds your memory cards. The wallet is really small, measuring 5.5” x 2.75”, and is designed to hold up to 6 memory cards at a time. It’s size is also helpful because it isn’t bulky, which means that you can hold it in your pocket without even feeling it.
Before I came across this wallet, I did what you probably do. I had a dedicated pocket in my camera bag that held my memory cards. But, when you’re shooting a wedding, sometimes you don’t have enough time to get your camera bag out to switch memory cards. With this wallet, you don’t have to. And the best wedding photography accessories are the ones that make your life as easy as possible.
The SD Memory Card Wallet comes in a few different colors, including green and black, and will cost you $95. Once again, this product comes with Holdfast’s lifetime guarantee.
Hush Keys Leather Key Wrap
This is yet another product I never knew I needed until I tried it for the first time.
The Hush Keys Leather Key Wrap is an ingenious product. I’m sort of upset that I didn’t think of it first.
This little piece of leather is designed to wrap around your keys in order to keep them quiet during important events, like a wedding ceremony. The leather wrap comes with two shackle clips, one of which will hang off of your belt, the other of which will hold your keys in place.
The Hush Keys Leather Key Wrap comes in a ton of different colors, like brown, navy, green and black and will run you $45.
I hope that these wedding photography accessories will help you on your next shoot.
