Then engagement ring photos are always some of my favorite. I usually have a few minutes to either come up with something unique or do something classic. I try to do both but clean and classic usually end up being my favorite setups. This engagement ring photo was taken during the bridal preparations at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown Philadelphia prior to a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony. While the bride was having hair and makeup done I was in the extra room working with all of her details. Traditional Indian wedding attire involves so many gorgeous details but the engagement rings, while each is different, still remain pretty classic. We had so much jewelry to work with so I incorporated some of the bracelets into the background of this photo to add some gorgeous bokeh - which is that blurry effect you see. I will often take photos of the rings again after the ceremony since I don't usually have the full set during prep. During the reception I usually grab a more creative photo involving things I see around the reception venue. There is another photo of this ring on my website that was taken using some string lights a bonsai tree and small figurine that was on the place card table.
