The Photos Are Great for Announcements
Especially if you're planning a proposal with just the two of you and no family or friends around to see it live, photographs of the big moment are the perfect way to announce it to all those you love!
You can use them for engagement announcements, for your first social media post, engagement party invitations, save-the-dates, or your wedding website!
Having a small album of different poses and setups to choose from for all of these pre-wedding posts, events and cards will also make it so you don’t have to use the same pic, over and over again!
So everyone can feel like they were there
Sometimes, words simply can't do a love story justice. With so many memories over a few decades together, it will mean that much more when you have something tangible (like beautiful photographs) to hold onto and collect that show different pieces of your story over time.
Mom showing up between your romantic proposal is probably not ideal. But with a full album of perfectly framed photos that basically replay your whole engagement start to finish, Mom can feel like she was a part of it.
Not to mention, all the friends your future spouse forgot to invite, your great-grandma, the list goes on. This won’t reduce the number of times you’ll have to tell your proposal story (which will probably hit about 10,000 by the time your wedding day rolls around) but it will provide a visual aid and a much richer picture of whole the whole thing went down and will make everyone you love feel much more a part of this important life moment.
It is an Expense that is Worth the While

Why not have this once in a lifetime occurrence documented at least for memories’ sake if not anything else? As for us, it is an investment that is worth each and every dime it may cost.
