This is a list of what I brought along to a Wedding in Ontario, from British Columbia. Google StreetView can only do so much to bring you somewhere you've never visited, and people don't get married by the roadside usually. So packing for a foreign location means you have to have enough to be 'sure'. You can bet I don't need the airport announcements to tell me to keep an eye on my luggage.
All of what I pack here, is completely different than what I would for a trip of similar length photographing the outdoors, or whatever else.
My way; pack what you use most comfortably first and what you are most likely to use in the circumstances you are planning for. You will have more time to focus on creating the photos and connecting with your subjects, rather than wasting time on aligning, re-familiarizing, checking, keeping-it-from-falling, and everything else to you have to do to for the gear you rarely use.
Thanks for reading!
