HOW to use your Engagement Photos:

You’ve had your engagement session, NOW what do you do with all these lovely photos. You had an amazing time, your wardrobe was fabulous, your professional makeup was poppin, the location was perfect, and you brought your own uniqueness to the shoot to make it truly one of a kind. Best of all, you enjoyed some QT with your boo, and were able to take a break from the craziness that has been wedding planning. It doesn’t get much better than that. This fun and relaxing day is something you’ll always want to remember. Here are a few ideas of how you can add them into your wedding day or just finish them for a few cherished keepsakes…

SAVE-THE-DATES: Your save-the-dates are the first piece of your wedding that guests will see, so they effectively set the tone. With that in mind, they should be personal and visual. A fun option could be fridge magnets over traditional traditional postcards, your guests will have something to look forward to with every trip to the fridge.

WEDDING WEBSITES: Your wedding website is the information hub for the big weekend, which your guests are sure to visit over and over. Let each visit remind them of what the day is truly about, you and your soon-to-be-spouse in love! You can share your love story, introduce your bridal party, and proudly show off the images from your amazing shoot! A wedding website is also the perfect way to keep everyone in the loop. Your out of town guests may forget their invitations at home, so having all of this information easily accessible online or in an app, will be a life saver. Include guest accommodations, venue locations, and the best places for out of towners to get brunch.


GUEST SIGNING BOARDS: Using either one of a small collage of your favourite images.  Sometimes couples will add their names / wedding date / a favourite poem or quote, with lots of white space for your guests to sign around the images. They print as either 16×20 or 24×36 and pop into a frame really nicely after wedding day.

GUEST SIGNING BOOKS: Guest signing books can feature anywhere from  20- 40  of your favorite photos, leaving lots of white space for guests to sign and write fun and loving messages. Years from now, it will rekindle the memories of your engagement and wedding just as your wedding album will.

TABLE NUMBERS: This is one more way to take something standard, and express you and your spouse’s personalities. Choose a different engagement photo for each table.

A SLIDESHOW: A beautiful way to share the whole session on wedding day and innovative way to take this showcase to the next level.



WALL ART for your home:  This is classic and should be seriously considered as part of your “nesting” decor. You should consider the engagement shoot as an integral part of your entire wedding experience. This is where your commitment starts, the “I do’s” just seal the deal, don’t miss the opportunity to highlight the beginning of your journey together. You already said yes! Now that’s something to celebrate.

Start your own INSTAGRAM hashtag: The pressure is on. You need to come up with a fun and creative wedding hashtag. Sometimes you can start to overthink things, so make it fun! Start a group text with your bridesmaids and begin brainstorming. Continue using the hashtag after you post your engagement photos. You can document the entire wedding planning process, your wedding day,and all the way through to your honeymoon. Include your hashtag on your Save the Dates and wedding website, and encourage your friends and family to contribute to it. A year after you say I do, it will be great to go back to see all of the memories captured from everyone’s perspectives!

I hope this give you some fun and creative ideas to share and show off your new images.
