If I absolutely need to put something valuable in the trunk, I do so before I arrive at the parking space.

This is how I operate as well. Thieves are opportunists, they watch for people trying to hide things after they arrive. When they see this, they know there is something valuable in the car. I wish Trunk Monkey's were real. See video below.

I have photographed over 400 weddings

Im sorry, the photographer totally Efed up

My day is shot when I capture a wedding. My gear never leaves my sight until I get home and its downloaded to my computer and they cards are secured. You have a responsibility to your customer and your reputation.

I can safely say........This would never happen to me. I also pack a 9MM for the drive home. There is just too many morons out there.

What a travesty for this wedding couple

You are correct, no argument there.
The most valuable things in your gear bags are those peoples memories on your media. Your first duty is to make sure they are safe.
I would never think of leaving them unattended in a car.
This doesn't mean I don't feel bad for both the client and photographer though. What a horrible experience.

I'm just a dad but have insurance. I also have all my gear logged combos photos and serials.


If I was a pro I would have insurance to protect me from clients for this situation. I would also have some kind of backup method. Dual card cameras and As I swap cards out one goes in bag another goes in my pocket or something like that.

I would be the vest wearing guy lol

I'm a .38+P kind of guy but I celebrate diversity!  :p

I also have a card wallet on my belt and even if my camera with the CF card that has all the images of the days shoot were to get stolen out of my vehicle I'd have a second copy in SD all on my belt.. but I tend not to stop on the way home from an important shoot.
