Sorry it has been so long since I have blogged. My sister passed away January 22nd after being in the ICU since Jan 3rd. I will be doing a blog post with photos to celebrate her life soon, but I wanted to let everyone know, it wasn’t out of laziness or not caring.
I usually do tons of BEST of posts since we typically have downtime in January/February so I will be catching up on those. So thanks for understanding and here is the first of my best of posts.
Ring Shots!!! These are probably one of the favorite things I shoot. I love taking creative shots of the rings using many different backdrops/props. I even have a ring kit I use with a bunch of supplies.
I always ask my couples if they have anything meaningful they would want me to use, and I try to incorporate those. Typically we do use any of the favors or items used in the wedding/reception as well as some colorful papers. We always give the rings back (well, there was this one time… HAHAH j/k)
So here are some of my FAVORITE shots from 2013~
