What’s In My Bag: Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Wedding Emergency Kit l Amber Brogdon PhotographyToday I’m sharing what I bring to every wedding in my Wedding Day Emergency Kit. I believe in doing all that I can to best serve my couples and their families + wedding parties, so being prepared with a few items that may help save the day and take some stress off of them is a must for me! I am constantly adding to this list as I see a need for it. This is a great list for brides + photographers both to make sure they are fully prepared, you just never know what could happen!
