We LOVE to shout it from the rooftops when we’ve found LOVE.
And when are you more in love than right after a marriage proposal?
The engagement announcement photo has become a popular staple as our smartphones have gotten better at photography and social media has made it so much easier to share big life events.
Want to make sure that the first thing you say to the world about your new commitment to your partner gets noticed? Read on for some ideas as clever as your phone. ;)
1. Catch the Moment
Many proposals are in magical places anyway. Why not take advantage of the landscape and the real-life emotions of the moment?
2. Your Best Friend Says it Best
If you have a fur baby, they probably play a big part in your relationship. So why not let them play a big part in your engagement photo as well?
3. Incorporate you Shared Passions
Many couples meet through or bond over a shared passion or activity. Bringing this into your engagement photo can be a clever way to mark your moment in a way that’s entertaining to your friends, families and even your future selves.
4. Make it a Metaphor
If you want to be clever with a bit of a pun, think of a metaphor about getting engaged and make it come to life.
5. Share the Moment Over… and Over Again
Desktop and mobile apps make it really easy to take many photos and edit them into one image that you can share for your announcement. It’s also a great way to get creative if you have a flair for imaginative ideas.
6. Play with Perspective
Using a photo to do something different with perspective can be a fun way to make your engagement announcement photo unique and eye-catching.
7. ‘Tis the Season
If a holiday is corresponds with your engagement, you could incorporate aspects of those celebrations to remember the moment.
8. Gotta Make ‘em Laugh
Not everyone is into a romantic engagement photo. Many modern couples might opt for something a bit more comical or even cynical. How far you take this is up to you but engagement photo comedy could really make your friends LOL.
9. Just Be You (Two)
You don’t always have to be the most creative, most magical, best at everything, super woman-man-couple. Maybe you just want to go au natural and share a classic romantic photo, or simply use words to announce the wedding date. Sometimes, simplicity is best.
