Metallic wedding decor makes for perfect ring photos

Jessica + David's wedding reception was a glittering array of metallics, mostly gold, with sequined tablecloths and shining place settings for each guest. When looking for a location to photograph rings we often try to tie some element of the wedding, or to work in some piece of the couple's personality or decor. (Or sometimes we just find something gorgeous or amusing and we work with that. It's really an artistic process, and ring photos are a great outlet for letting our creativity shine!)

In this case the sequined tablecloths seemed to convey the elegance of the room's decor without needing to see the room itself, and the shallow depth of field allowed for the rings' diamond and platinum details to be in focus along with a slim path of sequins, letting the rest of the table fall out of focus with a beautiful bokeh. (Not to be confused with Boca, though it's generally pronounced the same way, "bokeh" refers to the way a lens shows spots of light in out of focus areas of an image. This is generally thought to be the sign of a good lens, great lighting, a skilled photographer, or all three, and "good bokeh" can be a very subjective thing.)
