How To Take The Best Engagement Ring Selfie!

The most amount of engagements happen over Christmas and New Years. If you are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!! After getting engaged, of course (in this day and age) you have to announce it to the world through social media. I mean it didn't happen unless it shows up on facebook right?

You want to show off your engagement ring but what is the best way to do it? Here are some tips from professional wedding photographer Paige Jones on how to best capture that bling.

1. Hands up!
"If you raise your hand up above your head for 30 seconds, the blood will drain and your hands will be less veiny," Jones says. "So have your camera ready when you bring your hand down for 'the shot'!"

"Create some space between your hand and the background," advises Jones. "The more space you have, the more the background will blur, keeping the focus where it should be — on your rock!" 19 Amazing Engagement-Ring Selfies Bling it on! Circle your center stone with a twinkling diamond halo.:

3. Catch the light.
"There's a reason so many people take selfies in their cars — filtered window light is very flattering," says Jones. To get the most sparkle in your photo, Jones recommends heading to the nearest window with some sun shinning through and moving your bauble around until you catch just the right light.

4. Perfect the angle and style your shoot.
The best angle to shoot your rock is the one that showcases all of it. "People love a good 'over the top' shot," says Jones. "From your morning coffee in bed to the '#fromwhereistand' shots that flood your Instagram feed, a shot from above is visually appealing and an easy way to create an eye-catching image. Throw in some flowers, flip through a wedding magazine, stand over a vintage rug, the possibilities are endless!"
