May I have the rings, please

The wedding rings are the most enduring symbol of marriage; it’s important to photograph them in a way that highlights their importance. I have a handful of ways I shoot the rings and this is one of my favorites. Using an aperture like f2.8 allows the rings to become the focal point while the newlyweds become an intriguing background.

A Tree of Their Own

Whenever I shoot a wedding, I’m always looking for places that will make great images. When I saw this willow tree, with its large canopy of overhanging branches, I knew what I wanted to do. The entire wedding party is in the frame, but only the bride and groom are the subjects of the photo. I wanted to demonstrate the intimacy of marriage: your friends are still close, but it’s just the two of you who are in focus.
