Instagram Photography Essentials Buying Guide

Updated: Sep 19, 2019


Caleb & I shoot 99% of all our photos & videos for our instagram, blog, Youtube and courses. Before we were full time lifestyle/travel bloggers & online educators we were wedding photographers. We only kept our favorite equipment to use for our blogging business, and we put together a list of our very favorites below. Please let us know if you have any questions for what you're trying to do specially.






This is my very favorite camera. It is top of the line. Some movies are shot on this camera that we use for blogging. If you're looking for a very high end camera because you are looking to do photography as a profession, this is an amazing choice!

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera builds on the powerful legacy of the 5D series, offering amazing refinements in image quality, performance and versatility. This comes only with the body, you also need to buy a lens.

I'm also sharing a less expensive camera that still gets great results.






Our favorite lens we shoot all our content with is this Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens. This is a fixed lens (meaning you can't zoom in our out with it). We love the images we get with this lens.




The Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR Camera. This was our first Full Frame camera. It is still a professional camera that we used to second shoot our weddings with. Still high end but not the highest end model.



This is a cheaper camera option that we started off doing photographs with.



PowerShot G7X Mark II. This is the Vlogging camera we use to shoot our YouTube videos. We love that it's amazing quality, lightweight and affordable.



This is the tripod we use to shoot all our couple photography. It's the best tripod we've ever had by FAR! We take it with us everywhere and love how lightweight it is, easy to use, and sturdy to keep our camera safe.



This is the camera bag we use to keep all of our equipment. It's a basic that makes traveling with photography equipment easy.



We sometimes use the self timer app from Canon, but we mostly use this AmazonBasics Wireless Remote Control for Canon Digital SLR Cameras. It's only $8 so we also have a backup. This works really great for our couple photos.



Sandisk Extreme Pro - Flash Memory Card - 128 GB is what we use to store our pictures. We usually have extras and use a memory card case to protect them for our extras.
