White Wedding Ring | Wedding Blog Circle

Remember how it snowed like crazy earlier this month?

Well! After a long day of cabin fever, I stuck my engagement ring into the snow and photographed this:

When we got married, I declined having my wedding ring photographed because, at the time, I thought it seemed kind of silly. I was going to wear my wedding ring every day so, in my opinion, I really did not need a photograph of it, especially not one of it artfully placed on a teacup or a flower or a bit of pretty lace. But then! I had two babies and developed a wicked allergy to my ring and, honestly, kind of wished I’d had had those photographs taken. Luckily, though, in an awesome twist of fate, I became a wedding photographer and realized that I could take a photograph of my ring myself!

Moral of the Story: Don’t forget to have your ring photographed on your wedding day (or during engagements!).

Second Moral of the Story: If you forget to have your ring photographed, become a wedding photographer so you can take one of your ring yourself. Sure, I was a June bride and it was over 100 degrees on my wedding day but I absolutely love this little gem of a photograph. It was totally worth frozen toes since, naturally, I stepped onto my porch in the middle of snow and took these barefoot. I did live in Utah for four years, after all.

And I think that’s enough rambling for now.

PS. This post was part of a wedding blog circle (I know! Two blog circles in two days! I am certifiably crazy!) so go and check out Lisa’s gorgeous work right here.

This shot totally embodies the theme “Pure White”. It is gorgeous!!

This is lovely. My photographer didn’t even suggest that I get my ring photographed. Perhaps I should try a shot. Thanks for the inspiration!

I absolutely love this Lissa! I didn’t have my ring photographed either. I’m totally going to borrow this idea of using the snow as a backdrop. We were married in the winter so it will make perfect sense too!
