CAMERAS
Canon Rebel T5i:My first camera ever, highly recommend this camera for anyone who is starting out. You really just need to learn how to shoot manually. “Never upgrade your equipment until you’ve exhausted the equipment below it”
Canon 5D Mark iii: I shoot everything on this! I strap my Canon Rebel T5i onto me at weddings with a different lens just in case I want to take two shots!

LENSES
Sigma 35mm 1.4: My favorite lens! Its the Art lens, and I use this to shoot 95% of my work!
Canon 50mm 1.8: This is a great lens to start out on and learn off of. This was my first lens that I purchased!
Canon 85mm 1.8: This is the perfect distance to where groups of people don’t realize you are taking their photo, you can capture completely candid conversations and reactions.
Canon 5d Mark iii Kit Lens: I only use this lens for the 24mm ability to zoom all the way out.

FLASHES:
Sunpak DF4000U: A great beginner flash!
2 Canon 600 RT ii: These are great and reliable flashes!

OTHER STUFF
Macro Filter: This is literally $12 on Amazon! This is a whole set of filters. This is a game changer and you don’t have to buy an expensive macro lens
