1. Save the Dates

One of the most popular ways couples use their engagement photos is for Save-the-Date cards. You can get really creative with different props to let people know when your big day is approaching. Rodney Smith Photography offers custom design and ordering services using pro-labs so you can rest easy that your cards will be printed on beautiful paper with a beautiful finish that you choose.

2. Wedding Invitations

Some couples choose to use their images on their wedding invitations. There are many different components to a wedding invitation from the actual invitations, RSVP, menu cards, directions, and hotel accommodations lists to the stamps, envelopes, and address labels. There are many places you can use your professional engagement pictures to give your wedding invitations a more personal touch.

3. Guest Book

Creating a customized guest book is a great way to display your engagement photos. You can keep your guest book simple with just an image on the cover with blank pages for guests to sign or you can make it a little more personal. Some couples have included a few pages in the sign-in book that lets their guests know how they met, fell in love, and end up saying ‘I Do”.


4. Photos for Your Home

There is no better way to start the new life you will be sharing than decorating your new home with your custom wall art. Having your engagement images hanging on the walls around your home is the perfect way to remember the special bond you two share. Canvases are a beautiful addition to any home.

5. Display Canvases at Your Wedding

There are many ways you can use your engagement photos to decorate your reception venue. You can have large prints made to line the walls of your venue or have a few framed and allow your guest to sign it.

6. Photo Montage for Reception or Rehearsal Dinner

Having a sideshow playing as your guests enter the reception area or even to show at your rehearsal dinner is a great way to get your guest talking and adds a little sentimental value. Why wouldn’t you include a few of your engagement photos in it?

7. Party Favor/Gift for Guests

Key chains, postcards, and t-shirts even can all be made with your image on them. You’ll want your guests to take home something special to remember your wedding day by. Even if getting a coffee mug isn’t something you think your guests would appreciate, you can still have little escort cards personalized with your engagement photo.

8. Social Media Images

The best way to use your engagement photos is to have them as your profile pictures on your social media accounts. What better way to not only show off your stunning images but to also let everyone know you two will be tying the knot!
