Engagement and Save-The-Date Photo Props

Photo engagement and Save the Date announcements are hot, hot, hot! Wedding couples are adding fun props to their engagement photos that express their love, style, and soon-to-be-hitched status.

You can make your own photo props, like the cute DIY Oversized Engagement Rings from The House that Lars Built. Order wooden signs with engagement sentiments or have them custom made with your wedding date, like the signs above from Our Hobby to Your Home on Etsy.

Use sparklers to spell out words and symbols in the dark. Or create loving symbols and messages on a chalkboard, either as a backdrop or smaller prop in the shot.

His/Hers, Bride/Groom, Bride/Bride, Groom/Groom, etc. – order some adorable photo prop glasses from CreativeButterflyXOX on Etsy to add some extra charm to your romantic pics, too.

Ask your photographer for additional tips for planning an engagement photo shoot, using great locations and candid poses to make your photo props blend in beautifully.

Fun Wedding Photo Props

Sweet signs, garlands and banners are fun focal points for your wedding photos. Choose a “Hitched” garland from Banner LUV or send the ring bearer down the aisle with a giggle-inducing sign like the one above from 2 Chics That Believe, on Etsy.

Want a prop with bigger presence? Gather your entire wedding party around the life-size LOVE letters from Palace Props!

Masks, hats and costumes are great props for making wedding photos more playful. We also love the trending paper parasols (like this one from Exclusive Elements) for either a vintage or modern look, as photo props and wedding decorations.
