Because The Ring Is The Thing ~ The Details | Photography

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I say photoshop is actually a girl’s best friend ๐Ÿ˜‰ HA! Sorry, sometimes photography humor can be so ridiculously corny and yet I can’t seem to stray from it, LOL.

Anyhoo, one of my most favorite parts of Wedding Photography is getting the chance to photograph details, specifically the ring shots. Brides LOVE to see their beautiful rings on display because after all it does symbolize an eternal circle of love and commitment …. plus it’s always fun to show off a little bling bling *holla*.

There’s something so deeply meaningful about wedding and engagement rings and when a couple gives me the freedom to take those rings on a little journey and explore the depths of my creativity, it makes me sorta giddy … like a cute as a button middle school girl who is not in need of the wonders of photoshop ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are a few of my favorite ring shots that I’ve taken over the past couple months. Oh and for those who are interested , most of these shots were taken with my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM macro lens — it’s a beast of a lens and if it’s your budget, I definitely recommend it. You will be able to capture so many amazing details with this lens , but also have the option to use it for some pretty snazzy portraits, so I think it’s well worth the investment!!!

Also for those looking to for tips on how to get the great ring shots, I think the best advice I’ve heard is to really just have fun with it. Think outside of the box and look for backgrounds or textures that establish your setting. Treat the rings as if they were people — only much more tiny and very flexible so really you can get as crazy and fun with it as you want. Ooooh but make sure you take good care of the rings and don’t damage them or you will have some serious Ricky Ricardo “Lucy, you haff some splainin to do” to your couple, LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now onto the pictures … and because I really enjoy taking ring shots, this will likely be a recurring post, so here’s round one!

I'd be remiss if I didn't give Tommy some credit for this shot. The area where we took this image was hot, humid and buzzing with mosquitoes. When the flower wouldn't cooperate I wanted to ditch the idea, but he persisted and well I think it was well worth his patience!
