To avoid this ugly bauble, it is best to know what you’re in for, a tad bit before you’re deep in it!

Things to Consider Before Taking your Engagement Selfie:

Popularly referred to as the engagement selfie, the picture of your engagement ring, does speak a million words! With a warmly lit up ambiance and limelight on your sparkly ring entwined around your fiancés ring bearing hand, an engagement selfie can truly, last forever.

From tips to get the blood back in your hand by raising your hands for 30 minutes, there are many hacks to go Carpe Diem on your best day of life!

Make sure you double and quadruple check the below to make the most out of your engagement selfie.

  • Light

While some people believe that lighting is just another option to edit on their built-in phone cameras, others think that 12 in the noon when the sun is right above, is the perfect light to click the engagement selfie.

The truth is that, neither is accurate. If your engagement ring comes with an innate bling, adding light filters or holding the camera aligned to the sign will only make the whole setup look like the Edward Cullen Sunlight fail!

The best light setting for an engagement selfie that can accentuate the sparkle of your diamond without overshadowing its aesthetics is the soft evening light. Even if you have to wait for the natural light, hold your braces and wait. Remember that, gentle sunlight is your goal for the flawless engagement selfie!

  • Ring Cleaning

Engagement surely lasts forever, but if it has been sitting on the jeweler’s dingy rack for a long while, prior to your lover picking it up, you better give it a thorough rub before limelight runs its course. Often a forgotten etiquette of ring users, any new to an old ring needs a rub prior to its photoshoot.

Avoid clicking the selfie with the zoom-in enabled as this will blur the sharpness of your ring and mar its sparkle. This also captures a high-resolution picture; hence, you might want the dirt to keep off the shine!

If your fiancé caught you by surprise at a time when you had postponed your manicure too many times already; put on some moisturizer or makeup on your hand and go creative on the spur of the moment!

To properly take a snap of your ring, hold your arm outward like a selfie stick as you can always taper the edges later.

  • Pose

The most important stage of the engagement selfie session is to capture your beautiful ‘Will you marry me moment’, in its complete sap. For some it might be the shortlisted pictures out of the Skype Pop Out Proposal, Graffiti Art proposal or the classic after dinner on the knee proposal while others need a few poses to get to the perfect ramp pose. Regardless of how different the proposal is, the featured image should capture the essence of your love or something that you both, love together.

Choose a pose that epitomizes your treasure stone as well as the human treasure that slipped onto your finger and made it the loveliest moment of your life.

  • It’s not all about You, technically speaking; we are all serious here

Literally, yes it is your engagement. But, seriously, it is not about you in zillion poses with your gewgaw. But, it is about the man who proposed you with the lovely gem on your finger that you’re head over heels already. Furthermore, the centre of attraction of an engagement selfie is not your man as well. It is about both of you and the symbol of your love- the engagement ring.

Additionally, make sure to remove all the additional blings and trinkets on you so as to highlight your ring on the day it is celebrated for!

  • Choose your Background

If choosing the background is out of your limits, look out for the best emotive frame that you can lock around your present background. Listen to your heart and heed to your hand while capturing as many engagement selfies as you need, rather than just one. Even if the proposal was doggy style, or in the bedroom, you can always spice your background with pillows or even corners of walls!

The bottom line is, go carefree on a full throttle of your creativity, but do avoid silly to the extent that you will definitely regret it.

  • Grooming

Personal Grooming is a vast topic for the woman preparing for the wedding. Nevertheless, for the mini-wedding known as the engagement, you merely need a manicure to spruce up your charms. Make sure you clean your hands, nails and cuticles well in addition to polishing the nail with the colors to match your center stone on the ring.

Pampering and priming are necessary if you’re striking a pose too. With proper makeup, your finger, ring and profile will be sharp and perfect to last forever!

Apart from the above, you must also learn to practice steadying your photo taking hands to take a high-resolution, sharp and crisp image.
