At every wedding we photograph, we try to make sure we grab some detail shots to include your wedding invitation suite, or save the dates, or whatever you sent out to your guests, since this is such an important part of bringing people together for your day. We love design, and we love to see how each invitation suite or save the date we photograph represents each of our unique couples.
If you're in the process of looking for somewhere to print awesome invitations, we would recommend Basic Invite. They offer vintage wedding invites, cool save the dates, and even wedding guestbook ideas.
In the way of invites and save the dates, they have over 180 different color options to choose from, and if you know us at all you know we love color, so that number makes us very happy. Basic Invite is also one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print, and feel the paper quality before placing your final order with them. I know on everyone's computer screen colors can look much different in person than online, and there's just something to be said for holding a sample in your hand and physically getting to see how things are going to look and feel before you make the purchase. We think this sets them apart from other online invitation websites.
Basic Invite sent us a sample pack to photograph, so here are a few ideas of what can be done through them - these were all styled by Alyson Michelle - you can check out her website here and follow along with her instagram lyfe (read: bad-ass nails, adorable husband, and sweet kitties) here. She's a total blast to work with, and I want to bring her along with us to every wedding to take care of ALL the styling. This might need to be a thing in the future.
