Or a simple close-up detail shot of the rings on a pillow. Now photographers are pushing the boundaries of creativity and looking for unique ways to showcase wedding rings.

We have put together a list of a few tips for the perfect wedding ring shot!
First, find/bring some Great Props
A wedding is a perfect place to find fun, unusual props to show off those beautiful rings. Your photographer will often borrow a few of your accessories or decorations to create a small “set” on which to photograph the rings. Here are some of the most popular props that are used:
- the wedding cake
- fancy shoes
- bouquets and boutonnières
- the wedding dress
- invitations, programs, or signs which display the wedding date
- champagne flutes
Feel free to get creative though, if you have a certain hobby, or prop that would reflect your personality bring them and share your idea with your photographer. Your photographer can help you stage a creative backdrop tying into your wedding theme, or you can borrow some ideas from these couples for out-of-the-box ways to display your ring.
Secondly, remember the tiny details are part of a bigger picture
Up-close ring images are the gold standard, but it’s important to remember that the rings are also part of a larger story. They’re part of your love story, wedding day, and future together. Your Photographer can incorporate other meaningful items into your wedding ring photos. They commonly use other jewelry, floral arrangements, elements that have colors that compliment your color scheme, and/or architectural details indicative of your venue.
