In the past, I've used a shoulder bag for documentary style wedding photography. I pack my Domke F-2 full to bursting and have spillover stuff (like film) in another Domke F-802, and set them down when I shoot. Since most weddings move in a pretty predictable pattern, I can get back to them fairly easily. I haven't used an assistant yet, and I suppose that would help, but I like being alone. Since my F-2 is too full, especially if I rent an Xpan, I'm looking at big shoulder bags: http://www.tenbagear.com/2000_01_p899c.htm (nice zipper on top) or a Domke F -1x or going the rolling bag route, for example one of these Lowepros or Tamracs (or Tenba?): http://www.lowepro.com/pages/bySeries/ProRoll.htm http://www.tamrac.com/g_rollingbagsindex.htm I also am planning on using a Domke F-5xb around my waist. For gear, I shoot Leica M's for all the candids, and an Eos setup with 3 lenses (50, 17-35, and 85) for the general 'scene' and formals. My sense is the rolling bag might be the way to go, but it would make me more immobile with stairs and such, and it's heavier. Maybe others have luck with a small backpack? That strikes me as off-putting to clients, however. I'd like to hear more experienced people's opinions on the matter.
