5 Ways to Use Your Engagement Photos Before Your Wedding 

Engagement sessions are some of my favorites! I love meeting couples and learning more about their wedding plans. It’s such an exciting time in a couple’s lives and I love being a part of their wedding journey. Now, once you receive your engagement photos – what do you do with them? Here are a few ideas to get the most use out of your engagement photos! 


  • Save the Dates 


Of course, you can use your engagement session photos for your ‘Save the Dates’. And, if you decide not to send ‘Save the Dates’, then you could use them for a portion of your wedding invitation!


  • Wedding Website


Wedding websites have become a popular place to share all of the information for your wedding regarding RSVP information, registry, wedding party introductions, travel plans, and things to do nearby. You could use your engagement photos on your wedding website and even have a “gallery” page for friends and family to view the whole collection! 


  • Guest Book


Have you seen the trending coffee table guest book? Couples have been getting their engagement photos made into nice coffee table books mixed in with blank pages to use as the guest book at their wedding. Love that idea! 


  • Photos in Your Home


Of course, professional photos from your engagement shoot would look amazing as a gallery wall in your home. Or, you could just update some of the picture frames in your home with some new photos from your session.


  • Social Media


Finally, here’s your free pass to flood your social media with pictures of you and your significant other. Announce your wedding date and get your friends and family excited for the big day with social media posts from your engagement session.
