Another creative idea is to work in a background that hints at the engagement story. In Vogue's eyes, that might include the table at the dinner where your significant other proposed, the tray and rumpled sheets from your first engaged breakfast in bed, or even your intended in the background with your hand in the foreground.

"The app can capture the live-action excitement and happiness of the bride and groom doing an activity they enjoy together yet indirectly showing off the jewels." He continues, "Maybe they are walking their dog, shaking up a celebratory cocktail, or making eggs in the morning, but whatever it is, the subtle flash from a new sparkler is sure to catch the viewers' eye and make them do a double take."
