The Best Amazon Finds for Photographers

Amazon Picks

If there’s one thing I am, it’s obsessed with Amazon. Who isn’t? I have especially loved Amazon for streamlining my photography purchases. Nothings better than having something delivered right to me vs. having to go out and hunt for it!

So, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Amazon finds for photographers! Pro tip: Add your business credit card to your Amazon account to easily keep track of all your expenses.

Photo Backdrop Stand

Trust me when I say: This is the best photo backdrop stand for your buck! I’ve tried a few other (cheaper) options, and they simply don’t compare. This stand is heavy-duty enough to hold a roll of seamless paper or fabric. It also comes with a carrying bag and clamps!

Seamless Paper

I’ve searched high and low for a solid paper source. While you can buy this at most local camera shops, they usually mark up the price. You’ll find most of the neutral colors of this brand are available via Amazon Prime.

Purchase it here.

CF / SD Card Holder

If you’re still stashing your memory cards in random Ziplock bags and pouches, it’s time to take $10 and invest in one of these! I like this model best because it can hold both SD and CF cards (and micro SD, if you need those, too!). When I’m shooting a wedding I start from left, then down. When I’ve filled up a memory card I put it back in it’s spot face down so I know it’s already full.

You Are a Badass at Making Money

Any business owner should read this book. It will change your mindset on wealth, making money, and enjoying life along the way. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Trigger Point Massage Balls

Wedding photographers, especially, get these! During wedding season I use these religiously on my arm, hands, and hips (turns out, sitting long periods of time at a desk is not good for you). My massage therapist recommended them and they’ve really helped with muscle tension and self-care in between massages.

Purchase them here.

Muscle Soak

Along with the massage balls above, I use epsom salts to take care of my body. A long, hot bath with these and a few candles for aromatherapy will do wonders for your muscles, mind, and I’ve even cured a few colds with a hot epsom salt bath. That last one hasn’t been proven — but I think it’s true.

Purchase it here.

FujiFilm Instax Mobile Printer

I LOVE THIS THING. I’ve been wanting to invest in an Instax camera, but haven’t because—let’s be honest—I really don’t need another thing to lug around with me. Especially to travel weddings. Enter: the FujiFilm Instax Mobile Printer. This connects to an app on your phone and allows you to print any photos you want in a cute little, Polaroid-esque square film.

Purchase it here.

Electrolyte Powder

I don’t think I’d survive wedding days without these! This brand is the real deal, too. Wanna know how I know? My hot yoga studio in LA used the same ones. Well, you can also just take my word for it. I drop them in my water bottle and it helps keep me hydrated. My favorite flavor is the pomegranate.

Purchase them here.

Bluetooth Speaker Fanny Pack

Raise your hand if you like music. Raise your hand if your clients like music (hint: they probably do). I love this little thing! It’s obviously easy to carry along for the entire shoot, plus it doubles as a carrying case for your phone, cleaning cloth, memory cards, lenses, etc.

Purchase it here.

Lacie Hard Drive

Most seasoned pros probably already know about this hard drive. But, for those of you who are just starting out, I thought I’d link this here! I’ve used this brand of hard drive for the past two years and have never had any problems (knock on wood).

Purchase it here.

White Shirt From the Header Image

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for this shirt, so I decided to link it here, too. Why not share a little fashion! Every photographer does need some solid outfits. While this probably isn’t appropriate to wear on a shoot, it’s hella cute and one of my favorite blouses!

Purchase it here.

That’s all for now! I’ll be updating this post regularly with new items I find, so be sure to bookmark it or stay tuned on my Instagram for announcements on when it’s updated! Have a question about any of the items listed? Feel free to reach out!
