I would use the first one, because the skin tones come through as more 'true to life' and the lighting is good. But I would crop out more of the background and center it on the two of you. As a BW photo in a newspaper, the details of the background would be lost anyways and in a small photo in the paper, it would make the image of you and FI too small to "jump" out at people who are just glancing through, looking for info about people they know. I also think that when the photo is cropped down more, it's more of a classic engagement photo that will print very well in newsprint.

 

I would definitely not use the second one because the lighting on your face didn't come through well enough to look good in a BW newspaper photo. I also wouldn't use the third one because when you crop out the background, it makes the position of your hands on FI's shoulder look awkward (like you're holding him down or something). Same with the last photo...

 

That's just my opinion of all of them based on the intent to use them in newsprint. But, as photos to use in color print and to frame, I think these are really good photos--- love the background (especially the first one) and the colors really came through well!

My FI doesn't like #1 & I think his shirt is bunched up funny in #3, so I picked out more choices & made a new poll. You can find it here

Thanks so much everyone for all the great feedback so far. It's silly, but putting a cool picture in the newspaper is one of the things I'm the most excited about. I read my hometown paper online every sunday to see who is engaged. It will be fun to get to put in our picture now.

I just thought of this too---- since the photo selected is going to be printed in your hometown newspaper, then maybe it would be a good idea if you changed the image you select to BW---- this would give you a good idea of how it would look in newsprint...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
