  1. wahoo congratulations – bit late but helps to get the excitement and celebrations going a bit longer….. 🙂

  2. I’m German-American, and I did not know the right-hand wedding ring tradition!

    • I didn’t know about that ether I learn that on that website that I read. Hope you enjoy my work Thank you for stopping by 🙂

  3. Oh my I thought you married the stork! Congratulations on your engagement and the very best to you both! I just LOVE love!

  4. Congratulations! I am not sure about Germany, but in Russia it is because of the traditions of Russian Orthodoxy. A wedding band is worn on the left hand only if you are a widow(er).

  5. You are a great photographer. I envy your skill. Would you be posting any details on your technical details (i.e., equipment used, settings, exposure, etc.)?

    • Thank you very much glad that you enjoy my work. And I always put my setting right under the photos. I do shoot with Nikon d7000, with few different lenses. 🙂

  6. It’s true that Russians wear their rings on the right hand. I used to do that, too. Now, I’m married to an American, so I
    wear my ring on my left hand 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by and glad that my source of the fact was right, and thank you for taking your time to sheer that. 🙂

  7. Thanks for the like on my Squirrel Picnic – Everyone’s Welcome

  8. Thanks for checking out my blog. I didn’t know that about the rings. That’s pretty cool.

  9. There are other countries as well (in fact many) for the right hand & never really knew why 🙂
    Congrats & also thanks for your visit on my Photo-blog. Kind regards

  10. Interesting. I haven`t worn my wedding ring for years because I worked on machines and it was dangerous, in the end my knuckles got so big that i had a job getting it off my finger, on the left hand. i can`t use the right hand due to an accident. 🙂

  11. Beautiful background and photos. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Isn’t a proper engagement photo wonderful and this is no exception.

    I managed to capture the moment for my daughter last July (www.thereadrovers.wordpress.com) by using Sports mode on the camera.

    • This was perfect she didn’t see that coming. If you look closely you can see the remote in my hand. But overall I was happy to capture our special moment. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂

  13. Congratulation!

    I wear rings on both hands for different reasons. On the left hand- designated for my husband, whom I most often, as Americans, I find on my left (while driving, sleeping, sofa resting); and on the right hand- given for my family, where my mother, mother in law, and grandmothers’ rings bedazzle me in remembrance of them and the lessons they taught me.

    Give your new bride many rings. While the wedding band will always remain, allow the engagement ring to here and there throughout your years, be replaced; an upgrade, if you will, but more so, the continued promise of love through faithful companionship.

    Cheers, and be blessed.

  14. I always wonder why you can’t just wear the ring on whchever ring finger. Left or Right, does it really matter? Don’t mind me, i like to question the norm. Thanks alot for visiting my blog, its quite encouraging

  15. Congrats! I remember when I first came to Germany, I was so confused. I thought not one was married since I didn’t see the wedding ring on their left hand 🙂

    • Thank you very much, it makes me very happy to see that you enjoyed my work. I do enjoy this photo very much, she never knew that was coming. She thought we were just taking photos in the field. 🙂

  16. Congratulations! And thank you for stopping by my blog.
    In Hungary we also have the ring on the left hand. As I remember, in Sweden, too.

  17. I didn’t know this and this very interesting and surprising. Anand Bose from Kerala
