What is in my gear bag? | 2020 Edition

Ever wonder, “What is in the bag Samantha carries around with her?” What about the gear I use to photograph your wedding or portrait session?

As of 2020, NOTHING! I literally sold all of my gear! I have no camera, no lens, nothing.

So before the assumptions start let me announce that I am going MIRRORLESS! The start of 2020 had a quite few rumors floating around that Canon was releasing a new line of mirrorless cameras. I have always LOVED Canon’s color. However the system itself prior to this release was always a bit unreliable for me. Plus, I have always owned Nikon since day one. The curiosity behind the Canon line started a LONG, LONG time ago. I have oogled at photos from friends and their color profiles. I finally rented a Canon body and lens and took some portraits of my little family with it. It did not disappoint in the slightest except one thing. The images were not sharp. I was so sad and told myself then… if Canon ever releases a camera body with both I was DONE with Nikon.

So here we are in 2020 and Canon has done the dang thing! The new Canon R6 will be the newest addition (possibly even an addiction) to the SRP Family!

Because I had to sell everything to just get the body, I will have to slowly rebuild my lens collection. This means temporarily renting a few necessities for my brides, but it will totally be worth it. I am so excited to start this new season of learning. Releasing more creativity and artistry into my work! Yay for new seasons!
