Today’s wedding photos are more than smiling pictures of the bride, groom, bridal party and family. Wedding Photographers like to capture all the details of the big day, and that includes those shiny rings you now have on your ring. If your photographer is creative, he or she will most likely come up with a few fun ways to photograph your wedding rings. If you enjoy this trend, you may want to browse for some ideas online and share them with your photographer before the wedding. Here are a few designs to get you started.
Snap Some Pictures With Food
Many photographers look for fun foods to place your rings on. They might use anything from fruit to Hershey kisses to nuts to candy hearts to rock candy. Your options will depend on the type of favors and foods available at your wedding.
Show Off Your Rings in Nature
Many photographers like to get creative with ring photos by using your bouquet, centerpieces and any flowers or greenery at the photo locations. The options range from sunflowers to cornstalks to potted plants to tree branches to the bridal bouquet. If you like this idea, you might want to scoop out some locations prior to the big day.
Remember Your Stationery
Wedding stationery can be beautiful, so photographers love to use it as a prop. Your photographer may use anything from the place cards to the invitation to the program. Make sure your photographer has access to these items.
Your Shoes are for More Than Walking
The bride’s shoes are a wedding photo classic, but you may be surprised how many different ways a photographer can use them to photograph your rings. A few options include placing the rings on top of the shoes, inside the shoe or around the heel of the shoe.
The possibilities are endless. Just a few more options include a bible, your wedding favors, a clothes line and a wine bottle. If there is an idea you love, make sure you share it with your photographer, but don’t be too demanding. Photographers are creative professionals, and they don’t like to be given step by step instructions for each photo. Give them a few must have ideas, and then let them come up with their own ideas. They might just surprise you with their creativity.
