Wedding Invitations- Why I Need Them

As you probably know by now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things details. Photographing details on the wedding day is one of my favorite parts of the day. It allows me to get my creative juices going with designing/styling. This designing/styling all starts with the wedding invitations. I know many of my brides will splurge on their wedding invitations and with that in mind, it is my job to document the amazing stationary as best as I can, showcasing the work on them along with the other details highlighting it. Now, If you are someone who does not want to splurge on your wedding invitations, that is OKAY! I sill want you to bring them. Your photographer wants your to bring them. Why? Because we want to style those too. They are all still a part of your wedding day, and even though you might think there isn’t anything special about them because you didn’t spend a lot of money on them, rest assured, it is still a big deal!

It does not matter to me if you spend high money on them or low money. I will photograph them and part of what I love to do is make it look like a million dollars. Yes, thats right. I will make your wedding invites look high end (even if they kinda aren’t) and they will start your story of the day with all the information you provide for me. I love getting to do this and I love adding a few little things to the images to make them have more of a WOW look, even if you don’t think they do.

I bring a styling kit with me to each wedding. If your invite does not come with all the bells and wistles and you do not provide me with the entire suite that you send to your guests, I add a few things here and there to spruce it up and make it more of a photo worthy moment.

In my styling kit, I provide:

  • Vintage Scissors
  • The Mrs. Box Ring Boxes
  • Ribbon of many colors
  • Vintage Stamps
  • Vintage pins
  • Styling Mats
  • Vintage Tray
  • Wooden Hangers
  • Glue Dots

I don’t need to use these things for all weddings, but I love being able to have it there incase I need to use something.

So, I am here to tell you to keep a FULL invitation suit together to bring with you on the wedding day. Bring it to your getting ready location. You can also SEND ME ONE. I love getting mail 🙂 Your photographer will love you for it and you will be so happy you did!
