No, this isn’t a shot list. We don’t advise that you recreate any of these photos. However, we do love a creatively photographed wedding day detail, and so we put together a list of a few we thought you might like, too. We’re not talking about the standard ring in a flute of champagne, we’re talking about unique concepts that will reinvigorate your detail shootin’ game. Enjoy!

Don’t follow suit with trendy shots. Shooting table décor at a tasteful angle can drastically change the feel of a photo. Mix it up to give your reception coverage some depth.
