You have probably seen a lot of Instagram posts of celebrities, bloggers and your girlfriends with a photo of an engagement ring on their finger, the caption “I said “Yes”!” or emoji hearts and hundreds of comments with congratulations. Engagement photos on social networks even have a separate name - “ring selfie”. But keep in mind that even if you are thrilled to receive a long-awaited ring from a loved one, posting it on a social network is only worth it when you want to share the news with subscribers, and not brag about it. It is bad form to write about the value of a diamond, indicate its value and “unobtrusively” put a package from the most expensive jewelry store in your city in the background. Whether to take a ring selfie is up to you. We are here to offer 6 options for how such a snapshot might look.
Classic Ring Selfie
The most classic and flexible option: you can take such a photo even a few days after the engagement, with beautiful light and a fresh manicure.
Snapshot With Timer
Usually ring selfie is taken by holding a smartphone in one hand and pulling the other in front of you. But you can put your phone on a comfortable surface and take pictures of yourself and your hands using a timer - such pictures are more original and artistic.
Photo at the Engagement Location
Such a ring selfie is done directly in the place where the beloved proposed to you. A great option if the engagement took place in a beautiful and unusual location.
Just a Selfie
It’s just you and your ring in the photo - and the picture is the way you want it to be. You can make a “carousel” of several photos if you want to show the jewelry up close.
The Moment of Engagement Photo
Not exactly a classic ring selfie, but perhaps the best memory of the day you said “Yes” to your loved one. But in order for the picture to turn out the way it should, the groom needs to agree with the photographer in advance. Or you may have to hint to your boyfriend that you want to capture your engagement in a photo.
Selfie with Fiance
It’s just as exciting and special for him as it is for you. If he doesn’t mind, show the world the cheerful faces of both of you.
