I wouldn’t even dream of shooting someone’s wedding without backups of everything. My primary camera bodies both have dual slots so your wedding photos are immediately backed up twice. I have two backup camera bodies just in case I drop one down a mountain or walk backwards into a river. I even have backup lenses and flashes. You never know when a guest is going to accidentally kick a $600 flash off the top of your camera while you’re trying to take some creative shots on the dance floor (true story).
Speaking of that time someone dance-kicked your flash across the room – do you have insurance?
Sure do! I have full business liability insurance and am happy to share this certificate with your wedding venue upon request. All of my second shooters, associate photographers and photo booth attendants carry liability insurance as well.
