Wedding Wednesday | Tips for Creative Engagement Announcements
The time between Christmas and Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s the season of love! Otherwise known to photographers as engagement season. Wahoo! Beautiful brand new brides are everywhere you look, glowing with hearts full of love & pure joy!
Engagement announcements that were historically held until after the prints were made from the Engagement Portrait Session have been replaced by Instagram posts & hashtags such as #ido and #shesaidyes. The big news is announced within minutes and quickly spreads through family & friends. •
These days the Engagement Sessions are more for the official Save the Date announcements and newly engaged couples are getting all sorts of creative on their own with their social media announcements. More often than not just by using their cell phones.
Here are a few creative DIY announcement ideas because at this point…it’s really all about the ring right?
♥ Take a picture of her hand in his (perhaps in her lap).
♥ Take a close up photo of the new groom to be kissing the blushing brides hand.
♥ Have someone take a photo of her hands around his neck (with the ring hand on top of course)
♥ Take the ring off and design a mock set-up that reflects both of you that says, “I do” or “I said yes.”
♥ A close up of a yourself holding a couple of Starbucks cups with “I” on one and “do” on the other is really cute!
The sky is the limit! Think outside the box and creative ways to make your big announcement that truly reflect the two of you! Always be sure to check for the best light, switch up your angle if you need to and don’t forget your hashtags! *mwah*
