How to make a unique wedding invitation:
When you have a photographer as a mother, your wedding gets more complicated! My daughter experienced this first-hand last year. We had to plan the wedding around pictures, the best time of day, what would photograph well, etc. etc. I was doing most of the work, so it was OK. But my daughter is a legit artist so she had to design invitations, programs and a host of other details. And they almost ALL involved photos, mostly vintage photos of parents and grandparents.
For the invitations we did a wedding couple shoot, not quite an engagement shoot, but more of a faux day-after shoot, then compiled those pictures and put them in the invitations in sepia with white borders and little black tabs like photo albums used a long time ago. Here are the photos from that shoot, and how to make the invitations!
