MEET anastasia

UPDATED 11/03/16

Starting out as a photographer, I literally had zero idea how to use my camera, let alone what kind of gear to buy to do the work I was passionate about. I’ve had some changes of heart over the last year and a half, but have finally landed on a set of equipment I vibe with.


Now, the biggest question in the photography community is: Team Canon or Team Nikon. I can confidently say that I honestly love both. What? I know — just choose a side right? But, I can’t. Each one has its pros and cons for different photographers. I started out as a Canon girl in college with my trusty Rebel T2i, moved to a Mark 5D ii and then switched systems entirely to get my baby I have now, a Nikon D610. 

I loved the Canon interface, but I just can’t argue with Nikon glass. 

So, what’s in my bag? Let’s break it down (insert party boy music).


  • Nikon D750
  • Nikon D610


  • 50mm 1.8 (basically never leaves my camera)
  • 28-75mm 2.8 (perfect for large group shots or details of the rings)
  • 70-200mm 2.8 (gotta love this low-light lens for everything from the ceremony to reception)


  • SB-800
  • Phottix Strato ii Transmitter and Receiver for off-camera flash


  • Four 64GB SD Cards (my main cards for both of my camera slots since I shoot RAW)
  • 32GB (backup)
  • 16GB (super backup)


  • Pack of AA Batteries (for my flash)
  • Extra Charged Camera Battery
  • Reflector
  • Lens Hoods
  • VINTA camera bag (a true life changer)

I tend to keep my arsenal pretty simple in comparison to other photographers, but that’s my style and how I love to operate. I don’t use off-camera flashes until the reception or set up extravagant scenes for my photos. I want the images to be as natural as possible because, in the end, that’s when the authentic and genuine moments you’ll love come through.

I’m a firm believer in natural light, telling jokes to get a smile and a little silly butt grab from the groom to bride that always loosens the mood 🙂

So, that’s it! That’s my go-to gear for shooting all of my weddings and boudoir sessions. Do you have some favorite gems in your bag or have a favorite photography style? Let me know in the comments below.


XOXO, Anastasia
