We've always used high-quality photographic
equipment and currently use Canon brand
bodies and lenses. This is as true today
as it was during our first year (although
we also used medium format in our film years).
In our eyes, there's no reason to skimp
on the quality of equipment. That's not
to say we run out and buy the top-of-the-line
models because those models often have more
than we need, but we ensure that we properly
match our needs with our equipment purchases.
That includes the cameras, lenses, studio
lights, radio transmitters, etc.
We also incorporate redundancy into our
equipment plan. That means that we bring
more than one "set" of equipment,
and we don't keep it in the bag either.
For example, as a precaution, we use several
cameras for photographing a wedding. This
allows for higher efficiency and prevents
shooting all the images through one camera.
That way, if something should ever happen
that could not be determined during the
shooting, not all the images would have
been produced through a faulty piece of
equipment (camera). That situation has never
happened, but it's still a precaution we
