hauling your DSLR in style.

As a followup to our original camera bag find, I couldn't help but scour the internet (for hours I tell you) looking for more options.  As a part-time photographer, I regularly rock this beaut:


Which my husband bought for me…and it is amazing.  Especially for weddings/photo sessions because you can hold EVERYTHING in it and the sling back makes it easy to access your camera and lenses at a moments notice.  But let's be honest, it's not very practically to be hauling around when we're exploring our own town or playing tourist elsewhere.

This is where fabulous, lady-friendly camera bags come into play!  So many options, so many colors, so little time to convince Husband that I need them all!

1) My personal favorite and coveted bag, JoTotes!  Each bag is water-resistant and has 1/2 inch foam sewn in to protect your precious cargo.  The splashy inside fabrics are what get me.  JoTotes range from $89-$94.

2) A flashback to our original post,

Epiphanie bags are to die for.  I love the braided detailing on the new Clover bag…and the bright pop of color!  You can even carry your laptop AND your camera in this bag at the same time!  Style and function.  This bag runs for $184.

3) And happiness can be found at Kelly Moore.  Stylish, classic designs in gorgeous colors.  Need I say more?  I'm completely coveting this mustard hobo, complete with two movable padded sections inside for flexible storing.  Kelly Moore bags range from $159 to $249.


4) For your longer days playing tourist, an Emera bag is perfect.  Plenty of room in this tote for your camera, lenses and all your purse needs!  You just have to decide between the quilted or classic canvas versions!  Both are $169.

5) If you're looking for a more neutral option, this jill e bone and black bag is sure to be a good splurge.  Water resistant leather, a shoulder strap option and plenty of pockets for all your accessories.  At $239 it's a bit more money, but will last you for years.


So there you have it!  Style and function all wrapped up in one.  Which one is your favorite?  Any tips on convince my husband that I'm in desperate need of one of those beauties above?
