Ring shots are an important part of wedding photography. Rings symbolize the couples union and tell a piece of the the wedding day story that's unmatched by any other detail shots.

Amanda Stevens, our SideKick360 winner for 10/17, brings us a prime example of a creative, personalized ring photo:

"This shot was taken at a wedding last weekend in New Jersey. The venue was very well decorated in celebration for both autumn and their wedding day. I always look for something during the reception to tie the rings together for the photos and who doesn't love pumpkins this time of year?

This was shot with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 100mm IS L Macro lens with my assistant holding an LED video light off to my/viewer's right hand side." - Amanda
