It’s Announcement Time!

Bling! Bling, everywhere! That’s engagement season! Well all of this sparkle leads to the next step: announcements! We love wedding announcements that put engagement session photography to use, so put some thought in to these photos. The right shot always makes the perfect announcement! It’s a super simple, yet personal look. Plus, you get to keep showing off that ring! Here’s a few of our favorite engagement photo poses!

Ringing in the New Year

The Patchettes hope everyone had an awesome time ringing in the New Year this weekend! In addition to marking the New Year, these winter months are often known as “engagement season.” We’ve certainly see a ton of exciting proposals pop up on our social media pages. It’s really such a magical time, filled with family and warmth. What better time to propose? While we’re getting prepared for wedding season, it has been so fun to focus on the stunning rings that we’re seeing online and in the store too. Here’s a few engagement ring trends that the Patchettes have noticed and are predicting to be popular in 2017!

Rose gold is still making a splash in 2017. We’re not surprised, because it’s super flattering on every skin tone!
