During the wedding you only carry ON YOU 1 camera? the rest of the equipment is in the bag, safe in somewhere right?
Thanks Arman for the picture

I try to keep it simple. All spare gear locked in safe location. I then carry 2 cameras (1 with 28-70, 1 with 70-200) and a fanny pack with spare batteries and memory cards around my waist.

Something like that, both of the weddings I had second photographer so i did not need to carry second camera with me. I try to keep it compact and clean :) Other equipment is always close by just in case I need something.

I always have two cameras, with lenses attached, on me at all times. One has my 70-200 on it full time; the other is my main camera and I switch out my lenses (16 -35, 24 - 70, 24 - 105) as needed. Those lenses, as well as backup batteries, battery packs, CF cards, Pocket Wizard TT5 units, etc, are all stowed away in this bag from LowePro. (external link)

I only use my 17-50 during weddings. It's more cost effective that way :P I just hold my camera in my right hand, sometimes I switch to my left.

Seriously I don't do weddings, maybe in 10 years but not now. Good to see how other people do it.

I carry 2 bodies on me with 3 lenses and a flash in a Shootsac. My backups live in the car in my Think Tank.

We each carry one body and one additional lens + flash, extra battery, and extra card in a small camera bag that's on our person.

I have a rolling Pelican hard case for lighting gear, it has a Quantum QFlash, Sunpak 555, batteries, stands and modifiers in it.

My cameras are in a soft sided Pelican rolling case. I usually stow both cases behind the DJ table if there is room, or in my car.

At the wedding, I wear a Lowepro Street & Field Belt, 5D2 w/ 70-200 & 430EX on a Spyder Holster, 5D3 with 35L & 580EX on a strap. On the belt, Lens Exchanger bag with 17-40L, another pouch with 50mm f1.4, and another bag with extra batteries.

My assistant carries 5D classic, and a camera bag with 35mm f2, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, a couple flashes, more extra batteries, and the Qflash for portraits.

I prefer the spider holster (external link) because it holds the camera still in one spot. No dangling. With the Black Rapids, your camera hangs and swings around a bit. You have to take greater care in how and where you move. With the holster, it's anchored in one spot.
