Often times couples love the idea of having engagement photos taken, but are usually unsure of how to get the most out of them. This article will help you make the most of your portraits.
Guest Book – Usually your engagement photos are taken well before the wedding. This leaves lots of time to get a guest book made from them. Many websites allow you to upload your photos and customize your very own guest book. Shutterfly.com is a great example. It’s easy to use and offers many different options. On the day of your wedding you can place this on it’s own table or at the gift table. Your guests will enjoy flipping through the pages and it will offer you a great keepsake for years to come.
Matted Display – If you want a display piece for your home you can choose one, or a few, of your favorite photos and have them enlarged and matted. For an added touch you can add a signature mat around it where your guests can sign. Again, you can place this on it’s own table at your reception, or at the gift table. A beautiful picture of the happy couple, along with well wishes from friends and family, makes a wonderful display piece for the wall of your home.
Wedding Album – A great way to start the first few pages of your wedding album is with your engagement photos.
Reception Slideshow – A great way to entertain your guests is with a slideshow. They have become quite popular as they are easy to put together and often illicit a great response from everyone in the room.
There are many uses for your engagement photos. Get creative and have fun with them!
