Stride GumThere are just some things a photographer can’t function without. Sure, a camera is one of them, but I’m sure people would be shocked by the little things that photographer’s obsess over, repurpose, and invent on site to get by.

I’ll kick this off by addressing one of my major addictions. Stride Gum! My camera just doesn’t seem to operate properly if I don’t have chewing gum in my mouth. It’s so much of a wedding day necessity that when I stop to grab an extra pack of batteries the night before that I pick up, not 1, but 2 packs.

Generally those 2 green boxes of Stride gum get packed before those batteries do.
