I was wondering what are some unique items that cater to photographers and still looks professional enough to wear to a wedding. I am particularly interested in finding black pants that have pockets for a lot of misc. items.

For most events I dress fully in black. A nice black shirt and a pair of pants with pockets to hold small stuff. The black helps if you don't want to get noticed instantly when you take candids. I have a pair I bought at an army overstock which is very nice looking.

If you want to dress up, get a suit that looks nice, but that doesn't restrict your movements a lot.

That's a tough one. Most weddings I've been to the photographer is "dressed up." A good sport coat can hold a lot of stuff if it has actual pockets. Some just have what appear to be pockets but are not real.

If you think you can get away with it go to a uniform store that caters to law enforcement. There you should be able to find black cargo pants and black shirts with lots of pockets.

I would just wear a nice black suit and have an assistant carry my things. It looks a lot more professional then wearing cargo pants and stuffing it to the gills in camera gear.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Any sport coat I've ever seen has real pockets that are simply tacked shut to preserve the shape of the jacket.

For situations other than weddings try some of the travel stores - they have garments with lots of pockets that are often easy-care type stuff.
There's also the Scottevest line with hidden pockets.


who gives a rat crap how much gear you can list?

Khaki pants and a black or white polo or button up shirt. I keep it casual enough since I'm working and sometimes get hot. It's easy to heat up when you're moving around all over the place.

Think you get hot at weddings? Try working in the pits at a race track where you are wearing a nomex fire suit if you're over the wall! :lol:

It is always best to be low profile and blend in.

My wife and I at times have actually gone as far as to attempt to match the wedding colors. It must work because a few of the brides we've done commented when reviewing the pictures they and their guests don't remember seeing us. I just put as much as I can in my pockets and keep my bag close when I can.

I enjoy dressing in British school boy attire similar to that worn by AC/DC.

At weddings I wear black dress pants and a black shirt. Regular every day clothes work well enough, I use my Think Tank belt with a few pouches on days where I need less gear, but when I need more gear I use a TT Skin set with the BD harness. I actually don't carry anything in my pants pockets, I hate people who have change or keys that rattle around in their pockets.
