I went back and forth trying to decide if mustard was right for me -- I love the color but it occurred to me (actually, it occurred to my boyfriend) that maybe brides and grooms wouldn't want their photographer running around with a brightly-colored bag of gear. After a quick survey on Twitter and Facebook, my hopes that most modern brides would be okay with a colorful bag were confirmed, so I decided to ditch the boring black in favor of lovely mustard Betsy.
THEN, JoTotes threw a wrench into my scheme and introduced a new color in Betsy: teal. Eeek! I had an important decision to make.
I went with the teal. And I'm so glad, because it's SO beautiful!
It is truly the PERFECT size for me in a true messenger style so I can still squeeze past wedding guests and maneuver through venues without knocking over, well, everything (that didn't actually happen, but I could certainly see it in my future with my other, much bulkier bag). The depth is just right and the bag opening after you toss the flap aside is flexible and easy to work with. This was important to me as another bag I tried first seemed to have a narrower opening, making it difficult for me to look inside and grab what I need quickly.
Coincidentally, JoTotes is also offering Anna Delores readers a $30 gift certificate to use on any of their lovely bags-so-cute-you-almost-forget-they're-for-your-camera! All you have to do is "like" JoTotes on Facebook (and let me know you did so on the entry page over here).
What do you think of colorful camera bags (and don't let my recent purchase influence your answer, haha!).
Enter the giveaway before next Wednesday for $30 off a JoTotes camera bag, and good luck!
