Essential Gear for Wedding Photographers

When I first started out, I remember wanting to buy absolutely everything that would make me a better photographer. At one point in time, I had four camera bodies, and over ten lenses. As it turns out, it’s not about the quality of gear you have, or even the quantity of gear you have but how well you know your equipment.
