I’m so excited to share with you some details on an awesome product that I’ve had my eye on for a long time! For any of you that are into photography, an Epiphanie camera bag is beautiful way to tote around your gear! You can be sure that I was SUPER excited when Epiphanie Bags sent me one to review… AND offered a giveaway to one lucky Mom Endeavors reader! Woot! If you’re not familiar with Epiphanie Bags, here’s some information from their website:
Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she’d end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt.
Obviously that isn’t the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn’t exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn’t alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list. Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men.
My bag arrived just in time for the Disney Social Media Moms conference! I got the Clover in red. For blog conferences & traveling, I really wanted something that would fit both my macbook and camera gear. And, the clover bag certainly does that job well! It was perfect for #DisneySMMoms! That was my outfit for our general sessions day. Black & red is my favorite color combination, so my “look” is no big surprise. The red on the bag is a little more muted than I would like. But, it’s still very pretty! And, you can see that the bag is indeed large! But, I had no problem toting it around during the conference. The straps are really comfortable! And, I was SO happy with everything I could fit in it. Let’s take a closer look…The bag measures 18″L x 6.25″W x 13″H, constructed with water-resistant, high-quality synthetic leather. The quality is immediately apparent upon arrival. It came packaged beautifully and I LOVE the added touch of the camera charm! Super cute! There’s also an optional shoulder strap and pockets on the front & back for easily accessible storage. The inside of the bag is lined with soft, padded, brown fabric, featuring one zipper pocket, a separate laptop section, and four Velcro panels that create customizable compartments for gear storage. And, I managed to fit A LOT in there! Here’s a peek (taken with my camera phone, so not the greatest quality):
- T2i Canon Camera
- 55-250mm zoom lens
- Rockinon Fisheye (my new favorite lens)
- Business cards
- place for phone
- pens, pencils, lip gloss, change
Plus, extra space! 😉 There really is room to spare in there! During the conference I carried even more, including everything shown above plus a portable battery charger & phone card, a notepad, and some swag! It really is SUCH a great bag! And, I image all the other styles are fabulous too! For more from Epiphanie Bags, you can follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Instagr
