Remember the Boy Scout motto: always be prepared? This couldn’t be more important when it comes to having a wedding day emergency kit!

Weddings can sometimes be a bit crazy – you never know what could happen!

I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve needed scissors, command strips, or a Tide pen… (true story!)

So we’ve put together a list of all our wedding day necessities that we like to keep on hand… you know, just in case.


Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Here are some ideas for what to include in your kit:

  • Tissues
  • Baby Powder (humid summer weddings… need I say more?)
  • Bandaids
  • Medication for headaches and sore muscles (this comes in handy for us too)
  • Breath mints
  • Spray Deodorant
  • Fashion tape
  • Command hook (great for hanging the dress!)
  • Dental floss
  • Pony tails / hair ties
  • Mini hair spray
  • Lint brush
  • Safety Pens
  • Tide pen
  • Makeup remover
  • Bobby pins
  • Stomach ache medicine
  • Feminine products
  • Granola bars/Fruit snacks (also good for when your second shooter gets hangry *ahem Eric*)
  • Bottled water
  • Chapstick
  • Scissors
  • Clear nail polish


Even though this is a “wedding day” kit, family and newborn photographers could do the same thing!

Simply swap out some of the things necessary to your particular sessions.

Now let’s go make some portrait magic for our clients!
