LOVE THESE RINGS! - Rock Creek Cattle Co. Wedding

September 28, 2016  •  6 Comments

Wedding rings are so important - they symbolize a commitment, a love, a connection.  Usually they are made of the very best - precious metals, diamonds - by the very best.

I have a confession to make:  I always thought I wasn't that fond of diamonds.  Yeah, I am a lover of emeralds and pearls.  That's what I wanted for my wedding set.  But a wise jeweler warned me that those two components were too fragile for wearing everyday.  So, I got a diamond and platinum ring - and I love it, even if it wasn't what I had dreamed of my whole life.

As a wedding photographer, I am handed these precious rings to take on a bit of an adventure, to find a way to photograph them that highlights their beauty (they are always beautiful!) and reflects something unique and personal about the wedding.  I love this task!  I have to be careful not to take too long with this task and forget my other responsibilities because this is such an engaging and enjoyable assignment.

These two rings were handed to me earlier this month at a small private wedding in the Rock Creek Cattle Company, a development near Deer Lodge Montana.  I was instantly taken back by their beauty - how perfectly the diamonds of her ring are juxtaposed to the solid black of his ring.  Breathtaking!

Suddenly, a gathering of diamonds trumps emeralds and pearls.  Seriously!  I'm converted by this bride's ring!

This private home in Rock Creek Cattle Co. development turned out to be a georgeous spot for highlighting the vibe of this destination wedding - a great chance to catch so much of the character of Montana!

These feather covered balls in a basket served as a centerpiece in the livingroom of this beautiful home.  When I saw them I instantly knew they would make the perfect pedestal for these rings - a reflection of Montana's rugged natural beauty yet elegant because of the soft texture of the feathers.  And the views surrounding this house made for a perfect backdrop to the outdoor photos.

What a beautiful setting for this small but stunning wedding - and a great place to show off the rings that mark the love and commitment that made the wedding possible.

I can just imagine the owners behind these rings. They seem like two people who know who they are and compliment one another nicely. I can't pick a favorite photo.

Ring shots are some of my favourite too! They are all so unique to each couple. Great job!

Great photos and great story. I would think some jewelry stores would want you to do do photos for them and you would really enjoy doing them, too!
