When you get engaged, the first thing you want to do is announce it to the world!

  1. Get help from a furry friend! If you or your fiance has a pet, enlist them to hold a sign spreading the good news.

  1. This is the classic ring shot, but in a unique, new way. Make your own mug by writing on it with a Sharpie and baking it in the oven. Then take a strategically placed photo that you can post online.

  1. Set up a fun photo shoot. The morning after the proposal, find a friend to take a photo that gets the point across without having to show the ring or your man down on one knee.

  1. Incorporate letter blocks. If one of you owns a game of Scrabble, this photo is simple and always cute. Plus, you get to show off your ring in a way that viewers might not expect.
