One of those things that often gets overlooked in wedding photos are the wedding rings. It is almost a separate category of wedding photography. Most people think about wedding photography as some combination of photojournalism and formal portraiture. Then maybe a few detail photos of things like place settings, the cake, and shoes are thrown[more…]
