    Based on what I have seen only photo #3 (IMHO) is appropriate for an engagement announcement. Perhaps we are prudes around here but kissing photos aren’t typically used. The other photos with scenery are lovely but again not the popular choice for print.

    I voted for #3 for the reasons in @Treejewel19‘s post.  Do you have one with your eyebrows on the same level?  That would be even more appropriate, and would allow the photo to be cropped horizontally.

    I work at a newspaper and if you’d given all of those for a choice, we’d definitely print #3, simply because it’s a closeup and shows more of your face(s). The others would likely end up cropped, and just won’t look as good. Lastly, on any shot, some of the detail is lost when you print it on newsprint, so its best to go with the one that has the most detail to begin with (that being the closeup one), if that makes sense.

    I agree that number 3 is best.  It is the only one that is a good picture of the two of you vs. scenery or kissing where you don’t even see your faces.  I assume the picture will be black and white and smaller – I don’t think any would work except #3.

    I agree with prior posters. Number 3 is really the only viable option for this purpose.

    For the newspaper, #3 is the only one that works.  the rest are good pictures, but more for personal use, not public announcments.  For news announcements you really should see your face, the rest of either too smoochy or too far away.

    I think #3 would be th ebest choice for a newspaper picture.  The others are cute and would be great STD material!!
