If there was ever an all-important photo moment in a wedding, where the nervousness tends to kick in, it would have to be the ring exchange.
It’s a beautiful and emotionally-charged moment that all brides want in their photobook. The emotion and nervousness is perfectly normal. Exchanging rings is definitely one of the most important moments of the ceremony and more often than not it’ll also be the first time the bride and groom are exchanging rings. Because of this – and yes, this is for the guys! – the following tends to happen:
- the ring goes on way too quickly and
- often one hand ends up covering the ring altogether
Of course any professional photographer will be anticipating this. We’ll always get the shot of you exchanging rings by moving to the side or getting a higher angle but guys, just relax and be gentle. It’s a moment you should savor and rushing is not allowed! … of course if you remember, it can’t hurt to show off that gorgeous ring to the camera. You know it’s going to end up in your photobook!
