These days, the first thing people want to see after the engagement ring itself is the photos from the engagement. These visual representations of that truly life-changing and exciting moment are becoming something of a ‘must-do’ for couples, and you can either take them on the day of the engagement, or a few days after when you’ve had some time to plan!
Many people are coming up with fantastic creative ways to visually share the news of their engagement, so here are some of the best ideas we could find on how to show the world your love (and that sparkly new ring!).
A kiss on the forehead
Is there anything sweeter than a man who kisses his gal’s forehead? In this photo, the ring wearer should place her hand on the man’s shoulder or cheek (anywhere where you can see the ring, really!), so that the photo can capture the ring and the kiss in the same frame.
On bended knee
Of course, you can always recreate the exact moment that he proposed. Not all men bend at the knee to propose anymore, but if he did, this photo will be a perfect reminder of that incredible moment for years to come.
The writing on the hand
Take a Vivid pen with you so that you can write on each others hands. For example, you might write ‘I said yes!’ on the hand that wears the ring, and take a photo of this message with the hand outstretched in the foreground, and the happy kissing couple in the background. You might also add a ‘She said yes!’ on the other hand!
Similarly, you might let the ring do the talking and simply write the date on your hand instead.
Just the feet
It’s common for a couple to have a height difference between them, which is what makes a ‘just the feet’ shot so sweet. With the woman on her tip toes and the man standing flat, the photographer can capture the moment of the kiss in a particularly creative way.
To make it a little clearer, you can even write the date or the words ‘She said yes’ on the ground in front of your feet in chalk.
Tightly clasped hands with a bright new ring on the engagement finger is enough to say it all – and this is one you can easily take yourselves without the help of a third party or professional!
Cheers to that
Celebrate your engagement with a glass of champagne, raise your drinks in the air and capture the shot with the ring, the bubbles, and a gorgeous view in the background. After all, if you can’t celebrate an engagement with a cheeky tipple, when can you?
Where you first met
Did you meet at the beach? In a bar? At university? Head back to the place where you first set eyes on one another and use this as the romantic backdrop to your engagement photo shoot. You might even include a chalkboard (or whiteboard, if it was in a classroom!) to write a note about how it was your first ever meeting place.
