Keeping Memories Alive: Create a Beautiful Engagement Book to Make the Moment Extra Special

It might not be as extravagant as a wedding, but an engagement is still a high point in everyone’s life. That is why capturing the memories of this day is as important as preparing a special photo album for the wedding. The best way to keep the memories of your engagement alive is to make an engagement photo album. Together with the wedding album, this book can hold volumes of memories from two of the most special days of your life.

Here are a few pointers to making the engagement photo album as special as the event itself:

Online, Physical or Both

Decide if you want your album to be online, physical or both. You can choose either one or both, depending on your desire and budget. If you make both a digital and physical album, create them differently, so that you have different ways to show off your special day to people who come to visit you later on.

Create a Timeline

When you put the photographs in the album, don’t place them randomly. Whatever the occasion is, whether it’s a well-designed bar mitzvah album, a birthday album or an anniversary one, there should be some sort of storytelling through the photos. String them together and put them in chronological order, so that anyone who sees the album gets mesmerized in your story. Start with a few individual photos of the two of you, then move on to some couple pictures, both formal and informal ones. You might even want to re-enact the proposal, just to capture a few shots of those extra-special moments.

Customize the Album

Anyone making an engagement photo book is going to include engagement pictures and other trivia in it. If you want to make yours different from the rest, personalize it as much as you can. For this, you’ll have to:

  • Decorate the album as per your taste
  • Use colors that you plan to use in your wedding
  • Think up funny one-liners, quotes, and interesting messages to accompany each photograph

Finally, don’t forget to ask for help from family and friends who are experienced in making an engagement photo book. By doing this, you’re sure to create an album that can keep you and your spouse feeling engaged even years after your wedding.
