Our Wedding Photography Equipment

Wedding photography equipments Arenas Foto in Costa Rica uses.

Having good photography equipment is just part of the equation.  It does not necessarily make or break a great wedding photographer.  A great wedding photographer can take great photos without the best equipment.  What is a must, however, is having the right equipment for the job at hand and ensuring that it can weather the environment and the demands of a busy, professional photographer.  If your photographer is charging you as if there were a pro, their equipment should reflect their prices.  Here’s the list of our most current equipment as of August 2019. 

1. Camera Systems

We rely on Canon 5D camera bodies as they are weather sealed, have a full-frame sensor, and have dual card slots allowing us to have a backup of your photos in camera (what’s written to one memory card is automatically written to the other one).

2. Lenses

We use only Canon’s L series professional lenses as they are weather sealed, and offer the best saturation, contrast, and sharpness among Canon’s lenses, as well as among third-party providers.
