6 Uses for Your Engagement Photos
There are many reasons why having an engagement shoot with your wedding photographer is a good idea. Booking an engagement session is a great way for you to work with the photographer who will be shooting your wedding; it’s like getting a test run of what to expect on your big day. But afterwards, what exactly can you do with all those fabulous images? Here are 6 ways you can put your engagement photos to use.
How to Use Your Engagement Photos
1. Save the Dates
One of the most popular reasons to have engagement photos done is to use them for Save the Date cards.
If you are skipping the save the date card and just sending out invitations, you could use your engagement photos for those as well. There are many different components to a wedding invitation: from the actual invitation itself, the RSVP, menu cards, directions and hotel accommodations lists, to the stamps, envelopes, and address labels. There are many places you can use your professional engagement pictures to give your wedding invitations a more personal touch.
3. Guest Book
Creating a customised guest book is a great way to display your engagement photos. You can keep your guest book simple with just an image on the cover and blank pages for guests to sign or you can make it a little more personal. Some couples have included a few pages in the signing book that lets their guests know how they met, fell in love and ended up saying ‘I Do”.
4. Photos for Your Home
There is no better way to start the new life you will be sharing than decorating your new home with your photos. Having your engagement images hanging on the walls in frames around your home is the perfect way to remember the special bond you two share.
5. Displaying at Your Wedding
There are many ways you can use your engagement photos to decorate your reception venue. You can have large prints made to line the walls of your venue or have a few framed and allow your guest to sign it.
6. Social Media Images
The most common way to use your engagement photos is to have them as your profile pictures on your social media accounts. What better way to not only show off your stunning images but to also let everyone know you two will be tying the knot!
