This ring shot was taken at the Mining Exchange hotel in downtown Colorado Springs at Harmony and Patrick's wedding. The geode was a main theme for their wedding, the bride had a slice of the purple rock tied to every bridesmaid's bouquet, and the officiant used it during the ceremony to create a picture about marriage.
When I'm taking a ring shot, I always try to make each couple's look unique, which can be hard to do. I knew this geode was the perfect backdrop, so I took it outside on the balcony of the Mining Exchange Hotel and placed it on a plain, white tablecloth. It really is one of my favorite ring shots, maybe because their antique gold rings pop so much against the deep purple rock.
