Wedding Rings – love love love

Wedding Ring photography.

So this past weekend we found ourselves in Staffordshire at the amazing Barton Marina.  We were photographing the wedding of Dan and Tracy and we had a fabulous day.  We had as we always do a good long chat a few days before the wedding and got an idea from the couple what shots really floated their boat  (sorry for the pun!!)

We find one of the most requested shots from our brides is a great ring shot.  Not actual shots of the wedding rings themselves but shots of the ring that started the couple on the journey that brought them to this moment in time and in becoming husband and wife.

Last weekend we managed to produce three different looks in around five minutes.  All shot were taken within the same location.  All the photos had the same ambient lighting conditions and we only used props that we found laying around..

For the first photo, we took a mirror off the wall, popped the wedding ring on it and put her flowers in the background.

for the second shot, we place the ring inside one of the roses from her bouquet

and the third and final image, my personal favorite is one with the top of her make up bottle, I wanted this to be dramatic so placed a black marble cutting board as the background.

All 3 of these shots were actually taken on the kitchen sink.

In Picture 3, you can see the white stripes, well they are Venetian blinds in the kitchen window.

Interesting colors and textures are things we as photographers are trained to always be on the lookout for. But on a normal, non-macrophotography basis, we’re usually thinking of walls, sunsets, or other large backdrops. Keep in mind that, with your ring shots, you now have the luxury of taking almost anything and making it a background, from a piece of cloth to a purse to a party favor to a bouquet.

Worcestershire Weddding Photography – The site is getting too big !

Hey boys and girls,

today I woke up to the website being down, as you know I have not updated for a while, the main reason is currently we are very very busy, well today to add to the stresses and strains our website crashed and was off line for 14 hours.

Having spoken to the technical boys, we have decided that over the next week or so we are going to move the whole David Purslow Photography website to a dedicated server.

Having had the DPP blog running since 2008, its not so big that it needs its own dedicated machine and thanks to the likes of YOU our visitors our traffic and bandwidth has doubled in just 18 months.

So since I am back to having to work on the website, and to keep Emma (Best Bird) happy I will be updating the site agian from today.

The first photo I want to post if from a wedding this weekend, it will end up as my image of the week but thought it would be a great starting point.

Its from the wedding of Hayley and Dan which took place at the beautiful Ganary Hotel nr Kidderminster.  Its actually a photo from the bridal preparations portion of the day, I stumbled upon Grandad (father of the bride) doing the cravats of the boys in one of the bed rooms, behind them was amazing light and using natural light I managed to grab this moment before they spotted me
