The Ring Shot / One Frame Wednesday

Couples Wedding

I have this conversation with almost every couple, and most of the 2nd shooters I shoot with. We discuss the ring shot  – the photo of the beautiful ring or rings at your engagement or on your wedding day. I ADORE the ring shots that are just the ring and you can see all the sparkle – but I do not do that. I try to make the photo of your ring, and art piece. Something that you would want to hang on your wall and gaze at for generations. So I scope out many locations, and try many many shots to get just the right one. There was a wedding, I only had a few minutes to get the shot, so I just rolled up some blades of grass and put the rings on that – it turned out BEAUTIFULLY !

Your husband / fiancee spent a long time deciding which ring is best to adore your finger for a lifetime – so I want you to be able to enjoy it years after the proposal and wedding day has passed. After it has gotten scratched up, maybe lost down a sink ( hopefully this doesn’t happen ! ), or you can’t wear it for months during pregnancy. I want you to look at that photo, and remember the day he got down on one knee, popped that questions – and said I DO !

I want you to be able to put a collections of your wedding photos together on your wall, and include your ring, bouquet and you two. Along with all the other photos you love and enjoy.

I LOVE all of the photographs of my rings, but this one will always be my favorite of 2013 – I took this at Anna and Kyle’s wedding reception at the Ale House in Waupaca – it is in the front entry way onto a plant. Every time I look at it I smile, and think it’s freaking beautiful !

2016 was an amazing year. Not to say there wasn't any heart ache. Amazing people have left this earth and failures were made. But you know what!? I didn't fail, I learned something. Those amazing people who have left this earth, are having an amazing afterlife - I just know it! Life is filled with ups and downs but it's how we react to them that make up our future. A few of the awesome things that happened in 2016! This was my first year full time, first year in Madison, first successful RAD PHOTOGRAPHERS RETREAT and busiest year yet! I learned so much from the things I thought were failures. I photographed 18 amazing wedding and 1 stu ...

Lauren & Ryan – Eau Claire Wisconsin Fall Engagement Session
It's crazy that sometimes I do not meet my couples till their engagement session! That is the way it was with Lauren and Ryan - we talked on the phone and via email but this was the first time we met. As soon as we met it was like we were friends forever - we walked along the river in Eau Claire, and the industrial urban area they took me was AWESOME! It is great to have all the different options for scenery in just a mile area! The only thing that would have made their session better is if it was warmer outside! But Lauren and Ryan were awesome and they weren't bothered by the cold weather at all! Lauren and Ryan your engagement session w ...

Stevens Point Wisconsin Engagement / Heather & David
These two ... what can I say .... they were so much freaking fun at their session! We were laughing for 90% of it! From smelling faces to butt poses to walking barefoot on some rocks. The past few weeks I have been blessed to have meet with so many great people! And these two are no exception, we started the session out at Iverson Park then ended at a random field in Plover Wisconsin. These two danced in a field and posed in a pond. They were up for anything, and rocked it! David, the butt pose is going to happen at your wedding, no matter what! And just might happen randomly with just Justin and I at home. (people this is something really aw ...
