Ringing in the New Year!
Happy New Year! Thank you for following my journey this past year. I appreciate your constant support, encouragement, and loyalty. There are exciting new changes coming to AKP in 2018.
I am "Ringing" in 2018 by looking back at my favorite photographs I've taken of engagement and wedding rings. These are my Top 10 Rings of 2017:
10. Nicole and Chris Engagement Session
If you did not know this about me, I also work for a luxury watch and jewelry store. I am a sucker for ring close up shots, but love getting nice watches too in the frame!
9. Boudoir Session
I love this photo for a few reasons. Her engagement ring is first of all very unique. The blue opal in her ring compliments so nicely the color of the lingerie. You can see the definition in her body and also collar bones. Not to mention she is one of my favorite people too!
8. Kim and Kyle Wedding
One of my favorite bouquets in 2017. Risher Van Horn did a stunning job with Kim's bouquet, but Kyle did an even better job choosing a gorgeous engagement ring for Kim.
7. Phoenixville Foundry Style Shoot
Not only is Pegi's ring beautiful, Dianna's is an amazing calligraphist. The slice of agate really brings together the composition of the image. To learn more about Dianna and the Phoenixville Foundry, their websites are lisited below:
6. Phoenixville Foundry Style Shoot
Making jewelry is an art of its own. RAW by Olivia Mar's rings are hand crated and inspired by the earth and sea. Her work is incredible! Check it out here: www.rawbyoliviamar.com/rings
5. Michelle and Ardian Engagement Session
Yes, another awesome watch but an even more beautiful ring. I mean look at the classy bling on Ardian and Michelle! #goodtaste
4. Danielle and Jason Engagement Session
The perfect scenery for a warm, winter day engagement session, and the perfect ring.
3. Emily and Paul Wedding
There were all kinds of hidden gems in the Lancaster Arts Hotel. Emily mentioned she loved the metal doors that were outside of each elevator. The old hardwood floor and metal made for a beautiful compliment to her bouquet and ring!
2. Samantha's Maternity Session
One of my favorite mama's from Brigantine beach sessions this past summer.
1. Style Chronicals Blog Style Shoot
