I shoot with a pair of Nikon D750’s, and I love them. They are my camera babies. I didn’t always have two cameras, but about three years ago when I decided to purchase a second camera, I had the option to purchase a second D750 or a Nikon D800. While the Nikon D800 felt great in my hands, I opted for a second D750 for a few reasons, and let me tell ya, shooting with two identical cameras is a major payoff. Here’s three reasons why I shoot with two identical cameras.

Number One: It’s Easier on My Brain

There is A LOT going on in my brain on your wedding day, so I can make things easier on the ol’ noggin’ if I only need to memorize one set of controls. If you’ve ever watched myself or another wedding photographer in action on a wedding day, you’ll notice that we have to change settings at the speed of light when we move between light conditions.

Number Two: Consistent Images

I’m a huge fan of consistency. Just ask my co-workers at the Students’ Union (at least a few of them will probably agree with this statement…). Consistency in my work as a photographer (now that I’ve found my groove) is something I value. Using the same set of cameras helps me keep aligned with my consistency value. If I started using wildly different models of cameras to shoot the same wedding day, I’d end up with inconsistent shots. Well, that’s just no good!

Number Three: It Looks Cool 🙂

Okay, this third reason is all about vanity, and yep it does look pretty dang cool to shoot with two of the same cameras. I strap them both to my Holdfast Money Maker, put on my jumpsuit, and bam, I have a slick uniform.

Hi, my name is Janelle, I’m an photographer hailing from Edmonton Alberta.I’m all about connection and celebration. Seriously, it’s my focus from our first client meeting till the chicken dance starts. I make an effort to get to know your closest friends and family on your wedding day. Why? First, they’re probably cool people, and second, when they know me as “Janelle” the gal who plays Dungeons and Dragons and has a pet Duck, they’re going to let me into their world. My favourite moment of every wedding is right after the ceremony. This is when your friends and family smother or possibly crush you with either love or cheerful embrace. Bring on all the candid moments.

  I value connection and celebration of moments over a big production.
