How does one make a statement to the world that they have chosen someone? How will the rest of the world know that this one person has not only found love, but been brave enough to personally commit to the public expression of it. Not just someone to share a home with but the idea that from one moment on, all life’s joys, sorrows, sweet successes or its failures are to be spread out between two people. The rings are the statement. The rings are that visual reminder to everyone that they have committed. Whether a family heirloom, a hunted treasure or a custom designed piece, the ring becomes part of your identity.
The above shot exemplifies not only the moment, but the intent that surrounds true love. Lindy is beautifully holding the ring that she is placing on Michael’s finger. The story is not only in her gripping of the ring, but the embrace of Michael’s hand. No words or smiles are needed to see how much hope, trust and love are in this moment. The statement is made.
If you are intending to slip a ring on your loved ones finger, call us! We’d love to talk! juliana patrick photography
