Macro Monday – Wedding Rings

If you’d asked me at the start of 2014 if I’d be shooting any weddings this year, I would’ve said “No. I don’t do weddings any more. Just newborns.”

I was wrong. When my Dad mentioned that his friends daughter was getting married and he wanted me to shoot the wedding with him, how could I say no? A chance to work beside the person who is the reason I fell in love with photography to begin with… who wouldn’t take it!?

So, on a beautiful, sunshiney Saturday afternoon, my Dad picked me up in the hotrod, and we drove to Shawnigan Lake for Chrissie & Jay’s wedding.

I sent a super-quick sneak-peek to the new Mrs yesterday, and will likely do a full blog post in a few weeks.  Her sneak peek included this image of their wedding rings.  I love the simplicity and beauty that a macro lens can capture! Who needs fancy props when the details themselves are this perfect?

Macro Monday – Wedding Rings

Buying a macro lens is one of the best photography purchases I’ve ever made.  I love the level of details that I can capture. From newborn baby lips and eyelashes, to stones in wedding rings. I’m actually considering a personal project for next year, that only uses my 100m macro lens.

Today’s macro Monday post is a photo of Heather & Ken’s wedding rings.  They had a fun idea and requested that I photograph their rings with a fishing lure.  It was something I’d never attempted before, but I really liked the way it turned out.
