    8 Tips for Taking the Right Instagram Engagement Ring Selfie

    You had the perfect day, with the perfect new fiancé. Now you need to take the perfect engagement ring selfie to show off to all your loyal followers. Below, we've got the right tips to make sure your social media announcement completes the trifecta of perfection.


    1. The ring is the focal point

    Your followers love you, and they want to hear all about your proposal went. However, this is the time to focus on your ring. After all, this is an ENGAGEMENT RING selfie. Put your ring front and center to make sure that people stop and stare as they scroll through their timelines. If you get your ring to pop enough, you can be sure your followers will give you a double tap.


    2. Lighting is key

    If you're not outside, set up your shot near a window for some natural light. If you take an iPhone photo in a dimly lit room, you're pretty much guaranteed a blurry photo. Flourescents and yellow bulb lights aren't much better. Trust us–you want natural sunlight. Whether you're inside or out, watch out for tricky shadows.


    3. Include your new fiancé

    Most likely, they're the one that dropped the coin to get you the precious rock, so don't leave them out the engagement ring selfie. You can add your lovely fiancé to the picture while still following Tip #1 by having them stand in the background and keeping the main focus on your new ring. Involving your brand new fiancé also tells a deeper complete story.


    4. Take a ton of photos, but only use one

    Skip the busy collages and stick to your favorite photo. Who knows? This picture might end up being your official announcement.


    5. Take it for a trip

    Unleash your inner photo stylist. Find an Instagram-worthy skyline, beach, or terrain to serve as the backdrop of your ring selfie.


    6. Choose an elegant background

    If you can't make a trip, you can still make sure the background emphasizes your ring. Most girls like to use feminine details, like flowers. Stay away from cluttered backgrounds. Try to use his hand as a background if you can, there’s nothing more romantic.

    Please don’t use your bathroom. Mirror selfies are anything but great.


    7. Edit your photo before you post it

    Use an editing app like Photoshop Express, VSCO Cam, or Afterlight. These apps make it easy to experiment with cropping, contrast, saturation and sharpness to get the very best from your digital photo.

    8. SHARE IT!

    If ever there were a time to be sentimental, it's now. Write the caption about marrying your best friend, get creative with the emojis and tag the location of your proposal to share on social media. (Don't forget to tag @gundersonsjewelers and hashtag #ohmygundersons too.)
