The Wedding Ring Shot!!
We’ve come a long way from the traditional ring shots you’ll find in your parents’ wedding album. The traditional shot was either a close up of the hands hovering over the bouquet. 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 the wedding rings.
Talk to your wedding photographer about what kind of images you want of your wedding rings. Ask to see wedding ring images from the photographer’s portfolio to see how creative they can be. Sometimes a creative image can take some time to find the right location and lighting, and sometimes you can get lucky with a quick shot using something close at hand. We can guarantee your Complete Weddings + Events Tampa wedding photographer will grab detail shots of your rings on your wedding day, of all the detail shots this is one of the most important! These shots done creatively end up being some of the most cherished detail shots of the day.
Get Perfect Shots with 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.
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, such as:
- other jewelry (earrings, cufflinks, etc.)
- textiles and floral arrangements that are part of the celebration
- elements whose colors complement the day’s palette
- architectural details indicative of the venue
