Trend Alert: Ring Photography in the Fall

When you’re provided a spectrum of warm color tones as present in the Fall, and there is a wedding to be celebrated somewhere in the near future, what’s left is a plethora of photographic opportunities to capture those intimate moments within the richness of nature! The wedding ring, in particular, holds enough symbolic value to have its own features in every real wedding photography collection. Ultimately, we decided to combine all of these ideas to curate today’s fall season trend post!

The uneven repetition and distribution of circular forms give way to such an intriguing aesthetic!
