Vogue dubs this one the prop shot. They advise, "a hand draped over your fiancé’s or curled around a glass of Champagne can often feel less stiff than a hand-alone picture."

2. Background shot

Another creative idea is to work in a background that hints at the engagement story. In Vogue's eyes, that might include the table at the dinner where he proposed, the tray and rumpled sheets from your first engaged breakfast in bed, or even your intended in the background with your hand in the foreground.

3. Boomerang shot

“Boomerang is a clever medium for the engagement ring selfie,” suggests event planner Bronson van Wyck. “The app can capture the live-action excitement and happiness of the bride and groom doing an activity they enjoy together yet indirectly showing off the jewels.” He continues, “Maybe they are walking their dog, shaking up a celebratory cocktail, or making eggs in the morning, but whatever it is, the subtle flash from a new sparkler is sure to catch the viewers’ eye and make them do a double take.”
