What's in your wedding day bag?

There are tons of really great online articles of checklists on what to pack in your bag for a shoot. I find that I am always scrambling to find that favorite list, that I never remember to bookmark.

In an attempt to make myself more organized I thought I'd document what I pack and share my own checklist. Feel free to use it, share it or ignore it... at least I'll know where to find my list.
