Well did you let your photographer know before the photo shoot that this was important to you? If you did and they forgot then I don’t think it’d be unreasonable to ask for a quickie reshoot. But otherwise I would stick with your amature photographer idea or just wait get good photos of it at the actual wedding.

It can’t hurt to ask! I’m sure she will be willing to work with you. Gosh, even if you just meet for coffee and ask her to bring her camera. Doesn’t have to be a whole re-do

I forgot at a shoot once and Im a detail whore!! lol Sometimes it just happens, we are human. (My couple didnt even care or notice, I did during post work and was like crapola!) I got good ones at the wedding. 🙂 I would also be ok with meeting up real quick to get some ring shots before the wedding if you wanted them. So if you dont want to wait just ask.

I know the feeling, OP. I sent our must-have shot list (including shots of our rings) multiple times before the wedding, and we didn’t get any, either.

It’s not something I routinely feature that much in a e sess. Just contact your photographer. 

1. good ring shots are one of the hardest things to shoot. An amateur probably won’t be equipped/skilled to do it to your satisfaction. 

2. If one of my clients had someone else shoot an element of their wedding I’d question how good our relationship was. No one wants to see someone else shooting their clients. ESP if they do a questionable job. I had a couple let her cousin do an e sess for them and she did a terrible job. They told all their friends they hired me. Now people think I shot those bad shots. Ouch!

If you’re getting more shots with an amateur photographer I would ask them to do some ring shots. Otherwise just wait until the wedding and make sure to tell your photographer that those are important to you.

I would ask her if she has any in her files. If not, just get close ups at the wedding To me, I wouldn’t pay ANY exta money for a pic of my ring that  I can get for free the day of the wedding.

You can ask your photographer to highlight them at the wedding. As a professional wedding photographer, I take detailed shots of the wedding rings, bands, e-ring, during the pre-ceremony events….
