Tired of walking around wedding events with too many or not enough camera gadgets? Alex Sarna Photography will direct you to which camera gadgets are most essential to have.
All brides should keep in mind the equipment used, while shopping for a wedding photographer. If your photographer is excellent, but he/she is using consumer level cameras, your images won’t turn out they way you expected.

The colour and low light performance of a camera are the main features. Consumer cameras will not perform well under low light conditions. You will see noise and little detail in your pictures. At weddings, the lighting changes constantly, so make sure your photographer has a professional camera that can get the job done! Ask your photographer what camera brand he uses and why he/she trusts that specific brand.
Many wedding photographers shoot with mid-range zooms such as the popular 24-70. This lens is great, however today more professionals are using prime and fisheye lenses. The only reason to use a zoom lens is for its versatility and convenience. Prime lenses are sharper, significantly better in low light situations, and create a nicer background blur. Fisheye lenses are extreme wide angles that are not corrected for distortion. They allow the photographer to add a few nice artistic images into the album.
A flash is a must have for wedding/event photographers. The better the flash, the better quality of light it will produce. While some photographers believe in shooting only in available light, a photographer cannot go without one at a wedding!
Make sure your photographer has back-up for everything! If one camera, lens or flash dies, you don’t want to end up with no photos!
