At first it feels a little strange to devote an entire blog post to rings, but these are some of my favorite pictures to take! When I entered the Shoot & Share contest last year, I was surprised to see so many of my ring shots land in the top categories - I had no idea I was even that good at it! I still have so much to learn, but this part of an engagement session or wedding, more than any other, gets my creative juices flowing. I have nobody to pose and no instructions to give, yet I need to make that ring look unique and, when I can, add meaning to the picture for the couples.
Can I just say, too, that it’s hard to nail a ring shot? You wouldn’t know it if you aren’t a photographer, but getting the focus perfect is a challenge, especially when you’re outside and the wind is blowing - and when you’re on a tight schedule! So it’s with a little bit of pride that I present some of my favorite ring shots of the year - and oh man am I excited for what’s to come in 2019!
