Save the Date Photo Props

Friday, December 14th, 2012

After she says yes and the champagne has been poured, one of the most exciting things to do after getting engaged is taking engagement photos! Whether you are asking a friend to snap them or hiring a professional photographer, engagement pictures are the perfect way to memorialize this important milestone in your relationship.

As for my now husband and me, one of my friends generously offered to take our engagement! We took them in downtown Raleigh to for a classic cityscape background. I was giddy about what to wear and how to do my hair, because one of the pictures was surely going to be on our save the date cards! My mother-in-law even displayed these special pictures at our rehearsal dinner, as well.

Many of my friends have since had their engagement pictures taken, in hopes of finding one special moment captured for their photo save the date cards. I’ve been most impressed by their creativity in using props and accessories during their engagement photos to make their save the dates truly unique! From chalkboard signs and giant ampersands to banners and balloons, the use of props has really become a fast growing trend in wedding planning!

Did you use props in your engagement photos?
