You said yes! Now you are engaged and we know you are ready to announce it to the world! Now that you have shared the happy news with family and friends, it is time to get THE picture to make the important social media announcement. Read these tips on how to best capture that bling, then hashtag #engagementringselfie and watch the likes roll in!
1. Catch the light!
Lighting is everything. Filtered light is very flattering. Make sure you head to a window with some sun shining through and move your ring around to capture the light.
2. Put an exciting background in the shot.
A cloudless blue sky or beautiful landscaping can become a wonderful backdrop for your photo! Add a prop or rest your hand on your fiance’s arm for a great shot.
3. Get the right angle.
Experiment with the angles of your shot. A shot from above is visually appealing. Hold your hand over a beautiful pillow, throw or a vintage rug. The possibilities are endless!
4. Make sure your nails are done!
Rule number one. Get your nails done or do them yourself. Posing for an engagement ring selfie with chipped nails is not going to let your ring shine. You will want to stay pretty basic with your nails in order to let your ring be the center of attention.
5. Don’t Zoom
You’ll compromise photo quality by using the zoom feature on your phone. Instead, hold the camera at half an arms length to get the best shot, then crop it closer after you’ve taken it. We hope this gives you some bling bling inspiration!
