There was a time when I lugged around heaps of gear. Ya know, I had to make sure I had every lens for every situation. I even bought the 70-200mm telescope because I thought it was an industry standard. I never used it.

It's been a bit of a journey, finding the best setup for the style of photography I like. I've shot Canon and Nikon, which are solid systems but I wasn't happy

 Then came the Fooj. 

Behold the fooj, casually placed between my plant family that lives on my corner desk 

I like to keep my gear simple, not because I'm cheap but for me less gear = more space for creativity.

1. Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens - it's fast, weather resistant, super compact and serves as an excellent wide angle lens. It's my go-to for family photos, landscape shots and portraits. 

2. Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens - it's my sweet nectar lens. It's my favorite lens by far. it's amazing in low light, creates beautiful bokeh and is a must have for any Fuji shooter. It's perfect for ceremony shots, cocktail hour, candids and portraits. 

3. Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R LM - when I need to get something extra wide I use this guy. it's also my go-to for dance shots. 

I've tried so many different backpacks and have FINALLY found one that I LOVE. The Oliday Journeyman has been through the murk and it's still rockin! I can pack all of my gear and still have room for a water bottle, snacks and a pair of vans.

I've talked about how important supportive shoes/boots are for wedding photographers over RIGHT HERE So I wanted to share a real life picture of my Timberland boots. These guys have survived many weddings and countless shoots thus far.

I carry two Fujifilm XT2's strapped to the Holdfast Moneymaker and keep a Fujifilm INSTAX mini 8 in the bag.
