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 !

A beautiful Lake Session at Devils Lake State Park near Madison Wisconsin Jenna emailed me so excited to get photos of her and her man, Jacob! They live in Hobart Wisconsin and made the drive down to my favorite lake near Madison! Devils Lake is surrounded by beautiful bluffs, trees and has a sweet little private beach just down from the busy beach. This session came just a couple days before Jacob had to have surgery to put a stint in his brain. This made this session even more special. Even though this is a very routine procedure by their doctor, you just never know. Justin and I were honored to take their photos to showcase their love ...

Memorial Union Terrace Fall Engagement / Jessica & Colin The Memorial Union Terrace is a Madison staple! When Summer comes and the colorful chairs come out - the terrace is filled with bustle. We head down there as often as we can to people watch and drink a pitcher or two of beer. Jessica and Colin were nothing different, this spot meant so much that Colin proposed to Jessica at the Terrace. In front of dozens of people he asked the love of his life to marry him. We started their session at the Union Terrace where the wall was covered in beautiful fall colored leaves! I LOVE this wall year round and this was the first time I got to u ...
