Getting engaged can be such an exciting and thrilling experience. Seriously, this next big step in you and your partner’s life should be celebrated. Hence the reason why I highly encourage engaged couples to splurge and make sure they get their engagement photos done. However, some may think it stops there. You get your engagement photos back from your photographer and look at them. Maybe even put them in a frame and call it a day. WRONG. Knowing how to get the most out of your engagement photos can be incredibly helpful. Especially in making sure that you make the most of your investment. Trust me, it’s worth it.
Save The Dates
One of the most common ways you can incorporate your engagement photos especially while wedding planning, is for your save-the-dates. You can get really creative with how you want to show them off and also get people excited for the big day.
Another way you can use your engagement photos is showcasing them on your wedding website. Which, if you don’t have a wedding website yet, what are you doing?! Your wedding website is the perfect excuse to showcase you and your partner, the new engagement photos you got taken and also have a centrally located spot where all of your guests can go to.
Wedding Guest Book
If you’re looking for a more subtle option, opt to have some of your engagement photos in your wedding guest book. Your guest book is displayed at your reception to document all of the guests who attended your wedding. This is a great place to get creative and show off how AMAZING you both look, without going over the top.
Feel free to use your engagement photos as a perfect way to spice up your table decor at your wedding. This is a great and subtle way to showcase those beautiful photos that you’ve gotten done, without drawing too much attention. It’s also a great way to make your table decor just that much more intentional and personal to your love story.
The party favors that you give out on your wedding day can be the perfect opportunity to showcase snippets of your engagement photos. Whether you are handing them off as stickers or in goody bags, use this as a chance to get creative!
Post On Socials
Of course, the first thing that you may think of as soon as you open up that email to see your gallery is to post it on social media. Photographers love it when you get to share your favorite photos from your gallery to your social channels. Share it with the world and maybe even change your profile picture while you’re at it! Just don’t forget to always tag and credit your photographer for the work that they have done.
Professional photography is an investment and that includes your engagement session. Don’t feel like your investment is done and over with just because your session is! These are just a few ways on how to get the most out of your engagement photos, but feel free to be creative. Remember that during this time, it is all about you. Feel free to use your imagination, doing something different and play around with what you feel may be best. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
