A ring shot without the rings? That's blasphemy!
Vanessa & Anthony had a Disney themed wedding. They had hidden Mickey Mouse ears everywhere. I wanted to keep that theme alive when it came to shooting their wedding rings.
I also wanted to do something that's never been done before!
I asked Vanessa and Anthony for their rings and warned them that when I give them back they'll be wet and very cold!
I used their ice sculpture to create this shot.
I placed the rings on the ice and the rings quickly melted into the ice.
This shot shows the actual rings being consumed by the sculpture. Notice that the ice sculpture is vertical and the rings are defying gravity by getting sucked in by the ice
I pulled the rings out before they got consumed into the belly of the ice sculpture! Then I quickly took a shot of the imprint showing all the details of the rings in the ice.
I wanted this shot to be a surprise for Vanessa but after she cut her cake she immediately saw what I had done and she was more than surprised and happy....
The imprint of the rings lasted all night long and looked cooler as it melted away :)
