Wedding photography has taken on many styles in recent years but every wedding photographer is still trying to do the same thing – capture moments that will last forever. To be the best, you need passion, endurance, creativity and the right equipment. PocketWizard® triggering systems are the tools that will set you apart from others and capture memories never before photographed, with ease and reliability.

MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 with AC3 ZoneController
Many wedding photographers use E-TTL/CLS i-TTL when shooting weddings specifically for its ease of use, and PocketWizard makes it even easier. The ControlTL® technology inside the PocketWizard MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® lets you place remote flashes anywhere you want – hidden from view, even in bright sunlight - and shoot wirelessly. Add an AC3 ZoneController to your on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 Transmitter and control up to three zones of light in 3-stop increments directly from the camera’s position.
See how professional wedding photographer Brian Marcus uses his MiniTT1/FLexTT5/AC3 system to manage large amounts of ambient light with studio light to get some amazing bridal photos.
ControlTL also allows the use of FP/High Speed sync with your TTL flash. You can place the flash close to your subject and step back as far as you want and shoot wide open for an entirely new look. Go ahead, you’ll have the shutter speed you need to make it possible! For portrait sessions, you can use our exclusive HyperSync™ Technology, which allows full-power flash at faster than x-sync speeds up to 1/8000* of a second. Shooting outdoors with flash in full sun with wide apertures is possible, and you’ll love the results.
* Results may vary depending on combination of equipment used.
Need to mix it up a bit? The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 are completely compatible with manual flash and work with any PocketWizard radios including the Plus II, Plus III, PlusX and MultiMAX. You can even mix your TTL flash with Manual flash.

Remote Camera Triggering
Remote camera triggering allows you to get two different perspectives from one camera. Take a picture of the bride walking down the aisle with the camera in your hands and trigger the shutter release of a second camera positioned on the groom. Mount a camera over the dance floor and anytime you take a close-up of the bride and groom, you are also capturing a birds-eye view of the same scene. This can be done with a transmitting radio on the camera in your hands and a receiving radio on the remote camera as well as a Remote Camera Cable. If you want to sync a flash with a remote camera, all you need is a third radio.
