With August coming to an end and September quickly approaching, one would think that wedding season is nearing its end. Think again! In many places September and October are the perfect months to get married because the leaves will soon be changing and the weather starts to cool down.
After the wedding, the rings are the items that remind newlyweds of their wedding on a daily basis, apart from wedding photos. For that reason, it’s important for a wedding photographer to get striking shots of the wedding and engagement rings.
The above photo is a perfect example of a classic shot with the ring held by a flower. This photographer chose to take a more creative angle that almost makes the engagement ring look like one of the other smaller flowers.
It is important to ask the Bride what she wants out of her ring photos. Does she want to show off the size or clarity of the diamond? Does she want a certain setting or memorable item to go with the ring? Paying attention to these types of questions and concerns is part of the process of going from an ordinary wedding photographer to an extraordinary one.
