i have my engagement photos, now what do i do with them?

Building on yesterday's post about engagement shoot tips, here's a little inspiration on how to use your images from your engagement shoot. Make sure you get a disc with your images on it. You need the files to upload to make Save The Date cards like the above available from Blush Printables on Etsy. Most people like to plan what their doing, especially in the summer with holidays, so it's a nice idea to send Save The Dates cards to your guests. These don't have to cost the earth. You can buy a template from someone like Blush Printables on Etsy, or even make your own.

Martha Stewart has some great ideas for making your own Save The Date cards. Have a look here. And this sweet idea from Martha shown below. Find how to do it here.

Use your engagement shots for your Thank You cards too. Or your wedding shots! Plan on the wedding day to take a photo with the words "Thank You" in it. See here on Martha again.

Look how cute this Thank You banner is on Etsy from You're That Girl Designs! And I'm sure all my clever readers can think of other cool Thank You props for your own wedding photo cards.

And again, the ever reliable Etsy has tons of ideas for templates for these cards. Like this one from Even Andy.

Just do a little search on Etsy. You can do magnets like these lovely ones off of Etsy from Fubabee.

So go ahead and have a creative engagement shoot with your photographer. And don't forget to print and frame one of those images (they make nice Christmas gifts for your parents too).
