Timeout: Gear Rental {boston wedding photography}

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to drop a word or two about gear rental. As with most industries, there are times when either you need a specialized piece of camera gear that you don’t have, but don’t really need on a regular basis, or have an essential piece of gear go down right before a big shoot. The latter is a situation that we were recently faced with. We’d been having an issue with one of our camera bodies but because of scheduling we didn’t have time to send it in for service. When you have a main camera body that you’re comfortable with using under the gun on a wedding day it’s important to use the same body you’re used to. Relying on just one backup body is not an option. This scenario happened right before our recent Arizona wedding photography shoot. We were traveling in Arizona and so had to have a body sent to a nearby Fedex location in time for the wedding. A little nerve-racking, but everything worked out just fine. In the past we’ve had good success with Borrowlenses.com and lensrentals.com. Recently, ATS Rentals contacted us to introduce their services. We had never heard of ATS before and they made us a sweet introductory offer so we were on board. We needed a body for that weekend for a Boston wedding photographers shoot and after placing the order on Tuesday, the body was delivered just 2 days later! It was very well packaged…with candy! That was a first (Skittles, my favorite)! A return shipping label and everything else we needed were included. Kim and all the folks at ATS were a pleasure to deal with and we’ll surely be calling them for our gear rental needs in the future. Thanks Guys! Here’s a shot taken with the ATSRentals.com-rented Canon 5D MkIII body…
