Must-Have Accessories for Travel Photographers

Business

Travel weddings - the ultimate dream for so many photographers. Who wouldn't like the idea of traveling the world capturing beautiful love stories in some of the most romantic locations on the planet?

In my case, I’ve found that destination wedding photography comes with it’s a fair share of challenges, both good and bad. One being limited carry space. But there are so many ways to prepare yourself and still travel lightly!

If you’re ready to pick up the backpack and hit the road, here are a few sanity-preserving items that you’ll definitely want to keep on hand in your travel photography gear inventory.

G-Drive SSD – The Hard Drive That Can Take a Hit

Key here on the SSD. You’ll want something fast, rugged, and able to be tossed around without fear of breaking. I love G-Drive SSDs because they go up to 4GB and are protected with a rubber shock absorbing exterior to make sure they are build for editing and culling on the go. (Oh, and it’s water and dust resistant.)

Variable ND Filter – Control the Light Like a Pro

Bright sunny days are great, but not always for photography. Enter the Variable ND Filter, giving you the power to tame the light and get those perfect exposures, no matter how harsh the sun is. Just be sure you know your filter thread size before buying one of these bad boys!

Rolling Camera Suitcase – Your Back Will Thank You

Carrying your gear doesn’t have to be a workout session. A rolling camera suitcase is like a mini U-Haul for your camera gear. Wheels, protection, and style – it’s the full package. My favorite is the ThinkTank Airport Navigator – it lasts for years. I am going on 5 now and just bought a second one to replace it – plus, it fits as a standard overhead carry on for most airlines.

Memory Card Case – Because Losing Cards is Not an Option

Ever lost a memory card? Yeah, it’s like losing part of your soul. Keep those precious memories safe in a sturdy memory card case. (Trust me!)

Each of these items has been a lifesaver for me on my travels, and I bet they will be for you too. For easy access, I’ve linked each item to where you can find them on Amazon. Trust me, your photography kit will thank you!

Happy shooting and safe travels!

hey there!

It’s me, Jackie!
