Bling. Diamonds. Frosting. Whatever you call it, I love it all! (My poor husband, haha!)

Each of our couples have had such great taste when it comes to their wedding day bling - from their engagement and wedding rings to bracelets, hair pieces, necklaces. You name it! Over the years, I've slowly compiled some of my favorite bling shots, and am finally ready to share it! I could seriously share a photo from every wedding we've done, but as much as you probably want to, I know you don't have all day to sit here. :)

Narrowing it down to my all time favorite shots was really a challenge! Check them out:

Kelly is a longtime friend of mine and I was so excited when she told me she was getting married! She and her handsome husband Jeff tied the knot in Italy and then came back to the area for a celebration with friends and family. We captured this shot before her West Mountain Inn wedding celebration. Hard to believe this was back in 2012, time flies!

When we shoot the wedding rings (or just details in general), I really enjoy incorporating something else from the day to create more of a story. This shot is from Leanne and Evan's wedding at the Carey Conference Center. The letters were written by Leanne to Evan during their engagement and wedding planning. She gave them all to him on their wedding day. So sweet!beautiful wedding rings, love letters with wedding rings

Amber and Christian were married at the Crowne Plaza Golf Club in Lake Placid, a gorgeous venue for a wedding. I couldn't pick just one favorite shot of her wedding bling, so here are a couple: beautiful wedding rings, rustic photo of wedding rings

This was a unique shot I grabbed before Ashley and Damien's wedding at The Mansion Inn. I've always loved this frame, and with the colors of her engagement ring, it worked perfectly for a photo!vintage engagement ring, unique engagement ring

Lynn and Ben also tied the knot at The Mansion Inn. Lynn wanted to incorporate wine corks into her detail photos, so I came up with this shot...photo of wedding bands with wine corks

If we get a wedding invite in the mail, you can assume we will save it and take some shots at your wedding! :)
Here's a sample from Katie and Matt's wedding at Crooked Lake.

I love these next two shots, also from Katie and Matt's wedding. For the curious camera geeks (like me) out there, here's some fun info ... I try to shoot a lot of my ring details with our Macro lens. I love that lens and the limited depth of field that comes with it!beautiful photo of vintage wedding rings, jessica painter photography

Like I said in the beginning, I am sure I could blog at least one favorite from everyt wedding we've shot, but this has to end somewhere, and I couldn't think of a better photo to end with then some details from Katie and Kevin's wedding. Beautiful ring and unique shoes! wedding rings with converse sneakers, jessica painter photography
