1. Gary Fong's Lightsphere

I have tried out pretty much every on flash light diffuser that exists. Not a single one of them has ever made me 100% happy except the Lightsphere. With the Lisghtsphere, you can acheive even front fill light with no rear shadows. The Lightsphere is genius and makes all of our photographs have that sort of 3rd demension feel.

2. Hufa Lens Cap Holder

This little accessory works quite well. Especially if you are like me and lose your lens cap all of the time. This guy latches onto your camera strap and holds on very tightly to your lens cap.

3.CamRanger 

This gadget is something that I have been dreaming about forever! In the studio, I have our cameras connected to the computer. This way if Jada is shooting I can look at the picture, check focus, and make sure my lighting is perfect. When we were out in the field or at a wedding I have always dreamt of a way I could do this wirelessly to my iPad. Now I can with the CamRanger!

4. Yongnuo Speedlite YN560 III + Yongnuo RF-603 C3

I personally would much rather spend my money on studio strobes and nice glass. While shopping for on camera flashes for weddings I noticed that with a Canon Speedlite + Pocket Wizard combo would end up costing me over $1000. I just did not feel like that would be worth it for me. While searching online I found Yongnuo on Amazon. I was able to outfit each of our cameras for a little more than $100. Their products may be a little cheaper feeling and they do not have as much control as the Canon set up, but pair these bad boys up with Fong's Lightsphere and every shot will be brilliant. The Speedlite YN560 III can even connect wirelessly to the Yongnuo RF-603 triggers.

5. Pelican Memory Card Case 

This is exactly what it sounds like. A nice waterproof case for my memory cards to live in during a shoot or wedding.

6.Roscolux Swatch Book

If you haven't already noticed, I am a giant light nerd. While searching for the perfect color gels, I ordered one of these swatchbooks. They are made so that you can see all of the colors before you order larger gels. I discovered that they are actualy the exact same size as an on camera flash. Now I have a giant slection of gels to use all for under $5.
