You got your engagement photos back. Now what?
You had waited patiently for your photographer to deliver the full gallery from your engagement photoshoot. Now that you have the images downloaded onto your computer and phone, there are many ways to share and display them. As a DC engagement photographer, I have 10 ideas to share on what to do with your engagement photos.
Before the wedding Day
1. Share on social media
Share your joy with the world by posting your engagement photos on social media platforms to announce your engagement. (P.S.: Your photographer would love to be tagged on your announcement post!)
2. Save the Date
Use your favorite engagement photo on your save the date cards to announce your upcoming wedding date to friends and family.
3. Wedding invitation
Incorporate engagement photos into your wedding invitations to add a personal touch and give your guests a glimpse of your love story.
4. wedding website
Use engagement photos to create a beautiful wedding website that tells the story of your relationship and provides important wedding information.
5. Home decor
Display your engagement photos in frames or create a wall collage in your home to celebrate your love and journey as a couple.
On your wedding Day
6. Photo album as a guestbook
I love love love this idea. Create a photo album (or order one from your photographer) and use it as a guestbook at your wedding. At the end you will have lots of kind and cherished messages alongside photos of you.
7. Display the photos
There are several ways to display photos at your wedding. You can order large prints and put them on easels at the entrances, put them in frames and place on reception welcome area, or use them as part of the table centerpiece or numbers. I've also seen other creative displays such as slideshow or art gallery.
8. wedding favors
Add a touch of fun by customizing wedding favors such as magnets, keychains, or stickers for your guests to take home.
After your wedding Day
9. Thank you cards
Depending on how soon you can receive your wedding photos, you might consider using your engagement photos as thank you cards so you can get on them as soon as possible.
10. Personalized Gifts
Give framed engagement photos or other customized gift to your parents and grandparents, helping them celebrate your love story as well.
