When joining your true love in matrimony, show everyone how sacred, special, and lovely your bond is. Eye contact with your one-and-only shows a deep connection and intimacy. When you look into the eyes of your beloved, you see a future full of hope and love. When others look at you, they can see you have found “the one”. By turning the two lovebirds inward toward each other and maintaining eye contact, the photo reflects a pure intimacy easily identified by all who see the photo. Not to mention, you will have all your friends saying “aw!” when they see you two.

Let your inner kid run free as you pose for some hilarious and adorably messy engagement photos. Be sure to paint some cute smudges on each other’s faces and smile through the mess.
