If you’ve ever taken a picture of your left hand, you’ll know it’s not straightforward to get a flattering image. The best hand models recommend relaxing your hand as much as possible to avoid looking stiff or awkward.

Pick a Prop

If you’re struggling to maintain a professional state of hand relaxation, try picking up a prop such as a cup of tea or glass of champagne to make the image more natural.

For the best pictures, make sure your prop is something personal to you. You could even hold your partner’s hand for a really special image.

Get Experimental

Don’t be afraid to experiment to find the perfect picture. Using a range of props, backgrounds, filters and special effects will help you find the perfect engagement ring shot for you.

Have a look at Pinterest and Instagram to get some inspiration, as well as magazines such as Brides. Just don’t copy anyone exactly: you deserve an engagement ring selfie as special and unique as you.

No Hands

Some diamond engagement rings really do say it all. If you hate the look of your hand in photos, why not try something different and take a picture of just the ring?

Perhaps you could leave it in the box to recapture the moment you saw the sparkle for the first time. Or hold the ring in the palm of your hand to avoid showing undone fingernails.

Share the Love

Once you’ve captured that perfect photo, it’s time to share the love with your friends and family. Even for the least sentimental, this is the time to go PDA-mad. After all, if you can’t gush about how in love you are when announcing your engagement, when can you?
