Favorite Amazon Products for Photographers

Favorite Amazon Products for Photographers // This post contains affiliate links.

This post is full of my favorite Amazon goodies! These products are all items I use on a regular basis to run my business. My hope is you’ll find a few new products to love!

1 | Memory Cards

These Sandisk CF and SD memory cards are my absolute fave for my Canon 5D Mark IV. They’re insanely fast and allow me to record large Raw files onto a CF card and small Raw files onto an SD (for a backup) without delay.

2 | Portable External Hard Drive

External hard drives like this Rugged 5TB Mini are perfect for working on the road. They’re shock, drop, dust, and rain resistant. Doesn’t get much better than that for an external right?!

3 | Light Stand Flash Bracket

I wish I would have found this sooner in my career, it’s been a game-changer for photographing with flash! This dual flash bracket for light stands allows my second photographer and I to each have a flash set up on 1 light stand. Less setup and less equipment in a reception room, it’s a win-win!

4 | Black Out Curtains

These are the linen blackout curtains I have in my office! They’re perfect for keeping the sun out, my editing light consistent, and since they’re linen, they look like regular curtains. 🙂

5 | Iron Flask Insulated Water Bottle

Insulated water bottles are all the rage right now, and for good reason! They’re good for the environment (no more single-use plastic) and they keep water cold for hours and hours (even in the Phoenix desert)! The 22oz white Iron Flask is my fave because it fits into my car’s cupholder and my camera backpack. Say what!? They have a range of sizes and colors. You’ll love it!

6 | Cell Phone Tripod

Recently, I shared a virtual photo session I shot with my iPhone. Well, this is the tripod that made it happen! This extendable cell phone tripod is perfect for taking selfies, having zoom calls, or setting up a virtual photo session!

7 | Rechargeable AA Batteries

Again, a life-changing purchase! After spending $15-$20 for batteries per wedding I photographed early in my career, I knew there had to be a better way. I very quickly realized these Eneloop rechargeable AA batteries would be well worth the investment. Since purchasing in 2016, I’ve been rotating through about 20-30 of these batteries and they are still working perfectly!

8 | Desktop Dry Erase Board

This is a fun gift my husband bought for me! He noticed I would always write my daily to-do list items on sticky notes and then a few days later, just throw them away. He found this glass dry erase board that fits perfectly under my iMac! I love writing reminders and crossing items off of my todo list. Thanks, babe!

9 | Yongnuo 600EX Flash

I use 3 of these Yongnuo 600EX-RT Flashes for most weddings I photograph. They sync seamlessly and are pretty easy to use! They’re also very affordable compared to Canon’s version.

10 | Metal Hot Shoe Mounts

The hot shoe mounts that come along with most flashes have a plastic screw hole . It didn’t take many weddings for me to realize these get stripped pretty easily. I upgraded to these hot shoe mounts with metal screw holes. And bam! Problem solved. 🙂

If this post is your jam, you’ll also love 10 Steps for a Successful Rebrand or my fave personal items from Amazon!
