    Do you guys really carry all of this gear to a shoot? Or do you selectively pick items to use on different kinds of shoots?

      Hey Steven! It depends on the shoot! For local weddings we do carry most of our equipment in our Think Tank Production Mangager 40 case. For smaller shoots, or destination weddings we’ll pack lighter in our two Think Tank Airport International cases

    What’s the bag you use to carry your Avenger stands? I have one of them, and it’s so heavy and has bruised my shins many times over. I haven’t found a bag big enough to sling it over my back.

    Do you guys set up your 65″ umbrella at the reception?
