Hello! I have a question, how many engagement pictures did you post of fb or instagram (if you did) because I have a lot of pictures that I love. They are like 16 and I want to show them to everybody on fb and instagram but I don’t know if they are too much? I don’t want to bore people. I was thinking of posting only 5 but it’s too hard because I love a lot of them lol!

    You spent a lot on those pictures probably, and i would show em off! Maybe only make a couple of posts, but just pack them with a bunch of photos. I never leave a thing out bc its more for me than anyone else

    I probably posted like 25 photos on Facebook after out engagement shoot! People did not seem to mind, they were excited and said how cute we were. I think you should post as many as you want.

    I had about 20. I plan on using them for wedding venue as well so I am waiting until after the wedding to post them.

    I didn’t do a “here are my engagement pics” post. I’ve been posting the ones I like one at a time as I feel like posting stuff about the wedding. In total I’ve probably posted 6 or so between posts and stories.

    My photographer shared the link to our gallery on Facebook so I just reshared it for people to look at if they wanted to. My photographer has all of her photos on her website.

    We have about that many we like. I posted 1 when we got them. 1 on our anniversary. 1 when we were 100 days out from our honeymoon. I'm printing a few to display at our wedding. And we also have 2 in our invitations.
    That way I could still post them. But spaced them out, and I felt like people appreciated them more. I might post one or two more on milestone dates. We shall see.

    I like this idea. It also then gives people a sneak peak and a post of what you have been up to and updating that way. Then it’s spread out versus them keep on scrolling by the many you posted. Just an idea!

    5-6 pics (of solely the two of you) is probably enough without becoming overload. I say that because it’s just pics of you two over and over. So keeping it to a minimum is best. Otherwise people will just stop looking after a while and scroll to the next post.

    We were giving about 170 photos back from our photographer and I think I posted like 15 maybe? I want to add more but I’m the same way, didn’t want to bore people.
    I’m in the process of making a engagement photo guest book from Shutterfly. That way i can show more of them off and have a sweet guest book too!

    I had over 60 from our photographer. I posted 20 on FB in an engagement folder. I kept the best for save the date and for the wedding.

    I had the same dilemma because I loved like 100 of them! But we chose to keep most of them to ourselves and only post 5. I’ve seen people post like 30 and I think that’s kind of excessive and takes away from all the individual beauty in the pics

    You can post 16 and it won't be overwhelming.

    Post as many as you want! I posted maybe fifteen or so out of the several our photographer took. Mostly because I wanted to keep some to myself. 😊

    We posted some on social media and used one for save the dates and will display a few more at our reception.

    I did a carousel (one post multiple pics) on Instagram with my absolutel faves (came to 7) and made a post with the same 7 on Facebook. If you really want to share them all, I would avoid multiple posts on Instagram, maybe select your absolute favorites there and do a carousel, but on Facebook you could create a new album just for engagement pics and post them all! It should show up in one post, so people can look through as many as they like

    I think 16 is fine. I posted about half a dozen on Facebook and I think 2 on Instagram 🤷🏻‍♀️ I mean, I wouldn’t post all 16 as separate posts on Instagram because that would be really spam-y lol, but uploading them all together in 1 Facebook post is fine (if people don’t want to click through them, they don’t have to) and doing multiple pics in one Instagram post.

    I'm generally more private, so I only posted one on FB! It really depends on how much you're willing to share
