With your partner

Include your better half in your photo by having them pose alongside you. There are plenty of options for this one, from embracing to goofing around. Find something that suits your personalities and roll with it. This is definitely the most popular option of the bunch, for obvious reasons.

Spell it out

Take a direct approach and embrace the "I said yes" moment by spelling it out. A few ways to do this is with some signage, written on the palm of your hand or inscribed on some objects.

With a killer view

Was your proposal’s backdrop downright stunning? Put it to good use for your engagement announcement photo! Hold up your hand and snap a shot of your bling and the beautiful place where your S.O. got down on one knee. You may want to blur the background so everyone’s focus is on your rock.

With a toast

You and your S.O. will probably celebrate your engagement with a toast. Use this moment to share the big news and show off your new bling.

With your furry friend

If there are two things the internet loves, it’s pets and weddings (I mean, have you been on Pinterest?!). Involving your little fur baby in the post is guaranteed to rake in the likes and comments, so get them groomed and ready to pose.

With some props

Some cute mugs, a save-the-date card or holding some flowers will help put the focus on your new engagement ring in your newsfeed—perfect for the camera-shy couple.

With your favourite outfit

If you’re a borderline fashion blogger, you may not want to mess up your feed with a sappy couple photo. Well, good news, you don’t have to. Post a pic of you holding onto your most beloved accessory or make a flat lay involving a few of your favourite things (including your ring, obvi). This will make your post extra rebloggable.

A candid from your engagement

Sometimes the best photos aren’t staged. If your fiancé(e) hired a friend or photographer to sneakily capture your engagement, steal one of the candids from your proposal for your feed. It’ll give your friends and followers a sneak peek into the moment you said yes.
