Clark's Landing Yacht Club in Point Pleasant is a gorgeous waterfront venue with an impeccable attention to detail. From the marina to the numerous photographic locations near the venue itself, Point Pleasant is a beautiful location to have a wedding. The staff at Clark's Landing always takes extraordinary care to make sure that every detail of the day is flawless.
Speaking of details, I usually start the wedding day by photographing whatever details are important to my clients. In this instance the shoes were very important to the bride.
A note : I am never going to take pictures of things that don’t matter to my clients and if ring shots aren’t important to you just let me know! I love documenting everything on a wedding day and that includes the rings but if your primary desire is documentary images of people (not things!) please do indicate that to me!
This image epitomizes everything that I love about a good detail photograph. The detail in question - this absolutely gorgeous engagement ring - is perfectly exposed, sharply focused, and precisely poised in the light. The foreground and background of the frame are both compelling and add to the image. I love how the gold tones of the glitter make the ring pop and shine.
When I show this image while teaching wedding photographers the most common question I get is "What IS that background? What is the ring laying on?" The engagement ring is laying on the bride’s Rene Caovilla shoes!
