STROBE

Strobes are essentially flashes designed to be off camera. They come in various sizes and power ratings, and in my opinion, there is no better strobe than the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 Pro. This strobe is essentially the size of a flash but with 200ws of power—and I have never fully killed one of the giant lithium-ion batteries, so it can easily last an entire wedding day and more. The power is also enough to overpower the sun in most situations so long as you are not using modifiers that kill much light. This light is so small and easy to carry, I basically leave it on a stand and carry it everywhere I go. Paired with some basic MagMod modifiers (gel, grid and sphere), I can essentially take any type of image I can come up with. If you want to control the sunlight while also using large modifiers, I recommend the Flashpoint eVOLV 400 Pro or 600 Pro. But for run and gun shooting on a wedding day, the size, weight, power and price cannot be beat with the 200 Pro. This light is a staple in so many wedding photography bags and it might be the most owned light on the market.
