    So my girlfriend (or fiance now!) and I just got engaged, and I was trying to think of clever ways to take a ring picture, and this was the one I liked the most:

    I liked this one second most:

    (lol)

    I don't know if we're going to take any real engagement photos, but if you have any suggestions on a quintessential engagement pic, post it! Thanks for looking!

    She's already at work buying bridal magazines and trying to set dates and stuff. I was like "can we just wait a week before we nail down every detail!?"


    it's fun so far though!

    Nice ring. Nice hand.
    Where is the girl?
    Really, you can't take this picture. To tell the story, the ring, your fiance and you should be in the shot.
    Unless you are trying to sell rings, I would call this shot an 'el floppo'.

    Savor the moment! Congratulations are in order! Make a few beautiful engagement portraits of your lovely bride to be, just to capture this point in time; before you know it, you'll be rolling out of bed at 3 AM for a baby's feeding; then the little tyke will be throwing food all over the kitchen from his high chair; then school days will come all too early in the AM; and before you know it, your beard will be graying and you'll have been married 15-20 years. Then dig out those portraits and give her a set of them on an anniversary.

    Sorry I made you unhappy, Robert. If you don't want honesty, don't ask the question.

    Hey, just thought I would share one of the favorite ring shots I've seen. (I didn't do it, so I will just post a link, but check it out).
    Hoffer Ring Shot

    Actually if you look through his blog, he has an amazing ring shot pretty much every engagement session he does.

    One other thing to consider, for doing your engagement pictures... many wedding photographers do an engagement session with the wedding package. They do it so they can get to know you a bit beforehand. Also, with engagement sessions they tend to be able to get a little more artsy so wedding photogs tend to really enjoy those shoots.
