While you’re working on your photographer shot list, make sure you include detail photos. These are photos that the photographer usually takes while you’re getting pampered or relaxing before your put on your dress! Typically, the detail pictures include photos of the invitation suite, the bouquet, vow books, rings, jewelry and any other items you want photographed. If you’re looking for a unique way for your photographer to stage your rings, I’ve got you!
Take a look at these ring detail photos for inspiration.
With A Cool Background
A record player screams cool background. If you two are music lovers, this is a super cool way to incorporate something you both love into your wedding photos. I love the contrast between the black record and the bright bridal bouquet and even the little ribbon draped so delicately over the vinyl.
Traditional Ring Detail Spread With A Twist
This gorgeous ring box compliments the center stone beautifully. And the rose gold pops against the clear quartz crystal. The airy style of photography really enhances the femininity and delicacy of this ring detail flat lay.
This spread includes pearl earrings, a perfume bottle, vow book and a ribbon. The ribbon could be from the bouquet or the invitation suite. There is no rule on what you should or shouldn’t include in your ring detail photos so make sure speaks to you two!
These rings are placed on pages – maybe their vows – with a bouquet and amethyst crystal in the background. The wood grain beneath the hand written pages really compliment the color tones in the bouquet. Even though there is a lot going on in this photo, the photographer does a great job of focusing on the rings which are right in the middle of the photo.
While the rings are the main focus here, you can see flowers, jewelry and their invitation in the background. The ring boxes melt right into the surface which makes the wedding rings stand out even more. This flat lay feels natural yet includes everything the couple wanted to be present in the photo.
Rings and Nature
If you love the way the rings look with flowers, this is your sign to stage your rings on your bouquet. Seeing this picture makes me wish we did this. I love how gentle and delicate the rings look against the burlap wrap and bright colorful bridal bouquet.
I love love love the green in this photo and the fact that these look like regular house plants but look so much more exotic because of the way they were captured. The rings laying delicately and yet safely on one of the leaves and the beach themed box below add some extra special details to this ring detail photo.
How simple yet elegant is this moss bed for these wedding bands? With the simple glass of champagne in the background, this ring detail photo is all about nature’s natural beauty.
I had no idea a simple branch could make wedding bands looks so beautiful. And because these wedding bands have such a simple design with plain solid bands and a very simple diamond detail on the engagement ring, the simplicity of the branch doesn’t overshadow the bands. This is an important piece to keep in mind when you’re deciding on how to stage your ring detail photo. If you have very intricate wedding bands, do you want a simple background to really showcase the rings? Or do you have very simple bands and want a more ornate background that showcase the simplicity of the rings? There is no right or wrong answer here, only the one that feels right to you!
This is a really great example of a very cool detailed background that showcase the uniqueness of the rings themselves. This succulent may have been a favor or part of the centerpieces or maybe they brought it strictly for the detail photo. Either way, it’s a gorgeous photo that is certainly unconventional and unique.
This is a very simple way to include flowers into your wedding ring detail photo. This romantic combination of the red roses and the white baby’s breath is a classic and timeless combination. I love the dark red wedding ring underneath the engagement ring almost gets lost in the rose, like a surprise that you have to look closely to see. The pear-shaped stone is unique and traditional at the same time.
I love the way the silver wedding bands reflect the flower it sits on. And the way the rings sit in the middle of this pale flower yet lay on a green bed is very cool. It looks like the rings were placed right on this flower which is in the bridal bouquet. This is a great way to incorporate the bridal bouquet without photographing the entire thing or pulling out flowers from it to create a separate flat lay.
This combination is such a great fall wedding ring detail photo. The warm rich tones of the flower compliment the light brown surface it sits on. And I love that this photo is taken from straight above. The detail of the brands are accentuated by the small yet plentiful petals of the flower beneath.
This is another great way to include succulents in your ring detail photo. The light green and light greys are a perfect compliment to the dark grey in the band and the hints of it in the engagement ring. This is a great example of how to stage the ring detail photo with only two bands, not three. Not everyone wants to wear an engagement ring and a wedding band so you may only have two bands
If you’re having a beach wedding, this is a really cool idea to bring that theme into your ring detail photo. This one requires someone (probably the bride) to hold the rings so if you’re looking to have the photographer handle this while you’re relaxing or getting pampered, this might not work for you. You could also use this idea and place the container on a surface instead!
This is another great beach wedding idea. If you’re getting your rings cleaned for the big day, you might want to take this picture after the ceremony. That way, they will be clean for all the pictures leading up to it. If you take this picture first thing, you will both have sandy rings for the rest of the day. If your ceremony is on the beach you can just take the photos after the ceremony!
Unique Ring Box Containers
This photo plays to the contrast between the dark wood box and the white ceramic tray. The ring bearer, officiant or best man is most likely going to hold onto the rings in that wood box. This flat lay is a great way to incorporate the ring box without having it open.
Ring box or birds nest? Honestly, I’m not really sure! If you’re all about nature, this is probably as close as it gets. The ring bearer can definitely carry this ring “box” down the aisle. I love the delicate details of the baby’s breath and the red bow too.
This is unique way to dress up an actual ring box. The ring box the rings are sitting in is an actual ring box which means the bands are secure. This couple dressed up the surface it’s sitting on with flowers and a wood base. This means the rings are secure and decorated in theme with the rest of the wedding. A ring bearer can absolutely carry this down the aisle. Or the best man could just remove the ring box from the display and tuck it in his pocket for later.
This simple hinged frame is a unique and timeless ring box. I love the mr and mrs personalization inside too. The lace on the inside of the box and underneath compliment each other and bring in a delicate feel against the stark concrete background.
It’s almost easy to miss the rings in this picture. See the wedding bands on top of the flowers in the ring box? If you love bold color and flowers, this might be a great option for you. The rings are a bit of a secret so you have to decide how much you want to the rings to be the focus of the picture, if at all.
This is a very unique ring box shape. It’s clean and simple wood which allows the unique shape of it to shine. The texture of the flowers in the box create the perfect pillow for the two wedding rings inside. It looks like there are more details around the ring box too like the boutonniere and shoes.
Rings With Meaningful Documents
The rings are photographed here sitting on top of their personalized vows. This couple kept the rings in their individual ring boxes for a simple and classic look. I love that they incorporated their personalized vows into this detail photo.
This couple had their rings placed on top of the ceremony program. This is another great way to incorporate important paper documents from your day into your ring detail photo. I love that the photographer chose this particular vantage point like they were leaning over the bouquet to secretly capture this photo.
As you can see, there are so many different ways to capture your ring detail photo. Spend some time to think about what items you would like to include in it. Do you want something really simple like just one flower? Or do you want a more traditional background and include your vow books, jewelry and bouquet? Or what about laying the rings on a meaningful document like your personalized vows?
Whatever you choose, it’s going to be absolutely magical!
