Since weddings are quick paced, one-shot events, backing up your image files as you work is imperative. Unless you plan on carrying a pocketful of memory cards, you’ll need a device to store your files so you can unload your memory card and pop it back into the camera. (Always carry spare cards in your kit.)

This all depends on what type of lighting system you currently own. If you are shooting with tungsten or other form of continuous lighting, you’re in the game.

If you take a lot of pictures or shoot a lot of video, there will come a time when you will have to use your camera in the rain, though probably not by choice. Perhaps you’ll be on an assignment that can’t be rescheduled, or maybe touring an attraction that you won’t be revisiting. Mother Nature doesn’t plan the weather around your schedule, so it’s going to be raining.
