About Me

My photo
I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

With THIS Ring...The Third Installment!

Just in case you have yet to read parts 1 and 2, make sure you do so before reading this post (because that would be like reading the last chapter of a Harry Potter book first, which should be illegal!)


Either she shipped it super quick to make up for toying with my emotions all last week or she's just much better at shipping in a timely manner than following through on promises to finish rings.  I don't really care either way, because I got my ring!  And I love it!  And before I show you the oodles of pictures I took yesterday I have to say, that woman must have an amazing camera.  Because the pictures she sent me showed every little detail, and I had trouble just getting a decent shot.  I might practice with the macro settings on my camera and eventually post more pictures (because I'm officially obsessed with this ring) but for now, this is the best I've got:
I like that my center stone on my e-ring is like sparkling in this one

Fi says the yellow flower washes out the picture...I say it's artsy! haha

Sooo pretty - I think they look perfect together

Seriously...could they be any more perfect for each other?

Oh look, another pretty flower

Artsy yellow flower shot

Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a ring on your own hand?

I think this is my favorite of the bunch

Again...taking pictures of your own hand is impossible

I get it, I suck at taking pictures of my own hand

This is also in the running for a favorite picture

Little shaky...oops

I think this one is super artsy looking...sooo shiny!

I think this is the best of the "on finger" shots


I really like this one too...flowers and rings just belong in pictures together

The flash washed this one out, but look how shiny it is!!!

So feminine and pretty...

Mleh...I was really trying to get a good hand shot...

This one looks so dramatic
Sorry for my crappy photography skills, obviously I do not have a career as a wedding photographer in my future.  And these were the better pictures...I took a lot more then 20 in all, haha.  And as you can probably tell, I'm obsessed with the ring.  Which is why right after it gets appraised fi is locking it in his safe so I don't try to start wearing it before we're actually married...hahaha

Do you have any tips on how to take good ring pictures?  I have a great camera, I just kind of suck at it!


  1. Gorgeous ring! I saw a really great tutorial on WeddingBee Pro on how to take pics of your ring, of course I can't find the link to post right now...

  2. here's the link for the article Mich was talking about (or, at least I think it's the one): http://www.weddingbeepro.com/2008/12/08/how-to-take-amazing-engagement-and-wedding-ring-photos/

    I'm SO impressed by how it turned out... I had no idea Etsy could do such impressive, fine jewelry!
