The Rings

How To – Creative Wedding Ring Shots

By Wedding Photographer Jason Giordano

Always looking for new angles and fresh looks. I’ve been concentrating on the wedding rings lately.  Having shot thousands of weddings it can become  difficult to get out of your comfort zone and you can really fall into a pattern if you are not careful. Wedding Photography is a great outlet if you really enjoy people and have a knack for anticipating what people are about to do. I’m very well-known in the industry for my wedding photojournalism approach.  What most don’t know is how much I enjoy the creative side as well.  There is always time to do something different.

The Rose

The Rose & Wedding Rings

The Rose is fairly simple.  All about the lighting really.  Here I stood with the window at me back during sunset. The room was fairly dark and a few candles were lit in the distance.  I used a 105 macro lens @ f5.6 iso 800.  The difficult part was handholding the Rose in one hand and the camera in the other.  Keeping from shaking either hand was tough but I managed.

The above photo of the wedding rings was taken with the same lens same settings.  Candles again in the background but what you can’t see is the LED light that I use for videos!  The LED light has a set of barn doors and is placed directly above the rings.

    One of the most important vendors hired for any special occasion, is of course the photographer. Someone who cares as much about
    capturing every special moment as you do. Jason is that guy.

    When I was searching through countless ads online and in magazines, I came across Jason Giordano Photography. I went to his website, like I did with many of them, only I was blown away by the examples of his work.

    I called immediately and left a message inquiring about his services and availability. He called me back that same day.

    He let me talk and explain what we were looking for as well as the day, the time and the locations we were hoping he would be able to
    travel to.

    Once we had established he was available, he asked me wonderful and thoughtful questions about me, my family, my future husband and my soon to be in-laws. There was no discussion, we hired him and I am so happy we did!

    He continued to stay in touch with us by phone and e-mail even though we were months from our big day. As our wedding day approached, Jason called me with the weather report. It looked like the weather was going to cooperate so we could utilize the beautiful grounds both at the church and at the reception site. As a side note: I would like to point out to everyone reading this review, when we first hired Jason, he was in the process of being a father for the first time. Even though he was preparing for the arrival of his new bundle of joy, he never missed a phone calls and he replied to every e-mail promptly. His son was born weeks before our wedding
    day. He was on time, never distracted, and beaming as a new father. He never missed a beat and clearly not a single amazing picture.

    Now about those pictures .did I mention they were amazing! Amazing! For example, the church wouldn’t allow flash photography
    in the church, I would have never known he didn’t use a flash if he hadn’t told
    me. And the picture outside were absolutely beautiful!

    To give you an idea of how amazing our wedding pictures are, it took us MONTHS and MONTHS to decide which pictures we wanted to order for our Thank You cards. The variety of choices; ie: different angles, different distances, different lighting, different poses, different backgrounds. SO many wonderful pictures! Now we need to decide on the photo albums!

    Thank you Jason for capturing the most important day of our lives. Thank So Very Very Much! We look forward to doing business with you again soon!.

    We recently had an Oktoberfest/Wedding Reception in our backyard and had hired Jason to photograph the event. From the outset we were impressed with his professionalism and engaging personality. It was so nice to have a vendor as enthusiastic as we were about capturing the fun of the event! Many guests commented on how pleasant, patient and accommodating he was. Yesterday we viewed the pictures on-line and couldn’t be happier with the result. With nearly 100 guests and a lot of activity, it was wonderful to see Jason had somehow managed to include everyone in at least one shot. He also took special care to include artistic shots of all the decorations and games we had made ourselves clearly, he appreciated all the hard work and creativity that went into this event. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Jason for anyone’s photographic needs!

    We could not have been happier with the services Jason provided. I engaged him to take photos for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary gathering. The photo shoot included 6 grandchildren (one who did not like to sit still). Jason handled the situation like a true professional – he was engaging with the children, was thoughtful about the photos to be taken and was an all around pleasure to interact with. W could not have asked for me – I highly recommend him!

    I was looking for someone to take professional photographs of my intimate wedding, and luckily I found Jason on Thumbtack. He met with me to discuss the details and expectations of my wedding, and he gave me an excellent quote to work within my budget. He is very, pleasant, professional, and eager to please his client. On my wedding day, he arrived early to my home, and he began snapping photos immediately in my home and in the backyard. He took a variety of pictures, and he travelled to all necessary venues within a 4 hour period. He was very professional, pleasant, and patient with us (Even during inevitable stressful family moments which can happen at times!)I highly recommend Jason to photograph your event. I will definitely call Jason again in the future.

    Everything went better than I could have imagined. My parents were wedding photographers for 20 years while I was growing up so I know what an excellent photographer does. Jason was professional, patient, responsive, punctual. unobtrusive , relaxed, competent, personable and everything you might wish for. He made everyone relaxed for the formal shots and that is not easy with some our family
    The quality of the photos and the artistry is superb. He created many opportunities for lovely shots all around the venue!
    Jason was flexible and easy to work with at all stages of the process. Many of our guest commented very favorable about his professionalism and his photographs.

    Job was to photograph a 90th birthday event
    Jason was responsive, prompt and professional
    Would have been better to discuss the type of shots we wanted prior to event, he needed to take more shots of immediate family

    Jason came to our home and took family portraits for us all around the outside area of our home.  I think that he was only supposed to spend about an hour with us, but I think that he ended up spending more like 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours with us. He was great! He was easy to talk with the on the phone and “do business” with. He was punctual the day of the appointment. We have 3 children, and so Jason really had his hands full with trying to capture pictures of all of us. He was warm, enthusiastic, positive, friendly, easy-going, and he made it very comfortable to have him take our pictures. Our kids had a lot of fun with him and were definitely comfortable with him. One thing that he did that I really appreciated was that he walked around our home and found all of these really great spots with beautiful backgrounds to take pictures of the kids in that I would never have thought of on my own. The quality of his pictures were also excellent. We got some really great family photos thanks to Jason. Most impressive and best of all was Jason’s turnaround time. I did not have to wait to long to see the pictures. Jason got all the pictures to me within a week!

    I had interviewed a few photographers before choosing Jason to capture my proposal to my girlfriend. From the start, I was impressed with Jason’s professionalism and attention to detail. We were to meet at the Observatory Deck at the Rockefeller Center and on that certain day, it was snowing and the view was horrible. Jason was able to reschedule for a different day and everything worked out perfect and my girlfriend was completely flabbergasted and amazed. I would recommend Jason to anyone needing a reliable, trustworthy, and overall amazing photographer. Our pictures came out AMAZING and I can’t thank Jason enough for capturing one of the best moments of my life.

    My partner and I decided to get married in New York on December 14th, 2012. Weeks before we went to NYC (we are from Texas). I decided to look for a photographer in NY to help us on our big day. It was hard because as soon as I sent my request, I received many responses back from people. I thought “OMG what am I going to do? I don’t know none of these people.” So I started talking to people, and I talked Jason. Over the phone, he sounded very warm and genuine. I have worked in Customer Service for many years and I can read people’s voices and faces. Jason made me feel wanted and it was like he knew exactly what I was looking for. Don’t get me wrong, it took me three days to make up my mind, especially when I have to put a deposit down (you do this through PayPal, very secure). I decided to use Jason as my photographer for my BIG DAY. The BIG DAY came, and Jason was there on time, he was ready and helping us throughout the whole process (he was our witness too), he was incredible, taking shots of anything and everything. He was with us from the beginning until the end of our ceremony, and even after, he took great pictures of us outside, at the garden, and everywhere he knew it would look good. Making sure we were comfortable and making sure pictures were good. I can’t tell you how grateful I was to find Jason. He knows what he is doing and he created a piece of art. They weren’t pictures, it was art.
    I recommend Jason, eyes closed, and if you have any doubts, well just take a lot at his work. He is a professional and I guarantee you, he will go out his way to make your day the best day of your life.

    Jason is truly gifted! After seeing his work on his website, I knew he would be the perfect choice for the launch event for my novel, REDEMPTION, in March. The photos and video he provided after the event captured, not only memories and moments, but the energy and feel of the evening. The joy and excitement I felt, the fun had by those in attendance, and even the mood and theme of the novel was reflected in each photo. Guests and other participants each commented on his professionalism, creativity, and exceptional work. I plan on contacting Jason again when it’s time for the launch of my next novel.

    I am so glad that we found Jason! There are so many important events that come only once in a lifetime. I never hesitate to reach out to Jason when one of those events are on the horizon. His vision and work is excellent. He is also willing to accomodate my ideas as well. I recently went through and purchased 75 prints from multiple events over this past year. What can I say? He’s good!

    Inspirer. Encourager. Teacher. Three words I can use to adequately describe Jason. Seeing his photos and the way he can truely capture the beauty of a shot inspires me. He always takes the time to view my photos and lends many encouraging words. In my own photographic journey, Jason is there to guide me along and assist me whenever the need arises. I am so thankful for the beauty he gives to the world; in his photos and in his willingness to help others! (Now if he will only buy me that new camera he is ‘inspiring’ me to get!!! LOL) Thank you Jason!!!

I’m recently married to the girl next door.  We reunited after my return from living in the US Virgin Islands for 14 years. Our family has grown with the birth of my extremely fun son Noah who is 15 months to date.

Wedding photography  was introduced to me while as a director at the Marriott Frenchman’s’ Reef.  It was there  I began to truly understand customer service and its importance. It was also during this time  I began my studies at the Academy of Art University majoring in photography.

My services are 5 star rated on all three Wedding Wire, Thumbtack and Angie’s List.

Satisfying and exceeding clients expectations at every opportunity.
