Inside of every wedding band is a loving heart

inside of every wedding band is a loving heart

This is a classic photographic trick, but one that nonetheless elicits a “wow” from most people when done well. I first came across the Flickr group devoted to heart shadow photography after following a link on Our One Heart, and I just couldn’t resist reposting the link.

If the usual photo of his and hers hands holding sparkling wedding bands isn’t for you, why not ask your photog to snap a double heart pic using both of your rings? And if you’re long since hitched, there’s no reason you can’t rig up a light source, grab a book, and take your own photographs. Just be sure you read the text beneath the ring — if the first words that jump out at you are swaggering, cold, and cocksure, you may want to choose a different book.

    That is a cute idea. Our wedding photographer made us do the hands thing, which I have never really liked. I wish I had known about this.

    I like this a lot better than the hands

    I’ve seen that shot before. It’s a great idea, but, I’m rather proud of the fact that my wedding ring hasn’t been off my finger in three months! (Which is how long we’ve been married.) My husband takes his off when he’s lifting weights, but mine stays on. It’s plain platinum, so it doesn’t need cleaning or anything.

    That’s a great photo. I never seen that done before. I’ll be passing that on. I wonder if you could get locked hearts with two rings?
