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.
