Our Favorite Ring Shot Backdrop

Nov 3, 2017 / Weekend Snapshot

ABOUT THE WEEKEND SNAPSHOT SERIES: It’s our weekend ritual. Every Friday before shooting a wedding, we spend a few hours feasting on inspiration: glossy magazine spreads, favorite Instagram feeds, wedding site editorials, ads for luxury brands, Sprinkles’ cupcake window displays…. It ensures we arrive at every wedding fueled by fresh ideas. Now, we’re bringing a delicious bite of inspiration to you. Start your wedding weekend with a Luke & Cat Weekend Snapshot. The icing on the cake? The hands-on, how-to advice that accompanies each photo. Sweet!

Our Favorite Ring Shot Backdrop

Every wedding has one thing in common, the rings! How do we use this wedding staple as an extraordinary prop? One of our personal favorite ring backdrops is the invitation. In our pre-wedding day questionnaire (sent 90 days prior to the wedding), we ask our clients to mail us a copy of the invitation suite, which we carry in our bag on the wedding day. And, as a backup, we ask them to have a copy of the invitation suite in the bride’s getting ready room.

Having the invitation suite means we have a background that is very versatile. It usually matches the color palette of the day, and we can position the rings to showcase the couple's first names, the wedding date, or their new last name. That’s three shots right there!
