Lets talk about detail shots. As wedding photographers… they are expected! It’s a normal part of the wedding day process to photograph the bride’s dress, shoes, jewelry and most of all, the RINGS. However, it can be tricky to master this one specific type of detail shot because rings vary in size, shape, and cut. Every set of rings that I photograph have unique qualities that require me to take a slightly different approach in order to photograph them in a way that I love! I have little tricks that I remember to use when I photograph rings that help me to not get frustrated!
I feel like photographers who fall into one of two camps when it comes to RING SHOTS….. either you LOVE THEM or you DESPISE them.
Ring shots can either be……
Exciting or intimidating.
Fun or frustrating.
Brand elevating or value diminishing….
If you fall into the category of “despising” ring shots, my hope is that today’s Youtube video will help you realize what is throwing you off.
I’ve always loved teaching about ring shots and helping photographers understand what is keeping them from capturing ring shots that they have always dreamed of….
I’ve never broken down the process of capturing ring shots in this way until NOW!
It wasn’t until recently that I outlined an easier way to REMEMBER these main tips!!! I wish I had broken it down this way sooner!!
In this video, I teach through:
THREE P’S OF SHOOTING RINGS :
These key factors will make or break your ring shots and if even just ONE of them is off, your ring shots will constantly be derailed.
So, if your ring shots look something like this……
But you want them to look more like THIS……
Then you need to watch THIS……
ALSO, since recently announcing that we’re pregnant (with our fourth baby!) and that my sister is pregnant too (DUE THREE DAYS APART!!!!!), we have received so many questions! Some of these questions include:
“Did you guys PLAN this?”
“How are you both feeling?!”
“How did you tell each other?!”
“Are you guys the same when it comes to birth preferences?”
My sister, Emy, was gracious enough to join me on this brand new podcast episode and we’re answering all of these questions!!
If you have ever thought: “What would KJ Do?!” or “I wish KJ could just edit these for me!”
Have you ever wanted to stand behind me while I’m shooting?!
In today’s Youtube video I am sharing one of the BEST parts of the R6 or any mirrorless camera!
Today’s Youtube video has probably been my most requested video ever..
I woke up on this wedding day to the sound of rain hitting our bedroom window and I was ready for the challenge. Rainy wedding days pull out something in me that other wedding days don’t.
This wedding is what I love to call a “Legacy KJ wedding”! They are my favorite type of weddings these days and I have another one coming up next weekend as well!
