Wedding Ring Shot Ideas

1. Nestled inside a bouquet or flower. It doesn't have to be the bridal bouquet. Any flower that has a large bloom can be the perfect location to place your rings to be photographed.

2. Placed on top of rose petals. The soft texture of the rose petals allows the rings to really shine, especially if the rose petals are a deep red.

3. If you are writing your own vows, have them written on a piece of paper and display the rings on top of them.

4. Grab a newspaper on the morning of your wedding day and set the rings at the top of the page just above the date.

5. Put your heels to even more use by sliding the wedding bands down the heel of your wedding shoes.
