Every bride has things that she cares about. I cared a lot about having flowers everywhere you looked because I wanted it to be “pretty”! Some brides spend big bucks on the dress! Others spend a ton on stationary. I LOVE photographing beautiful invitations on wedding days! However, if you’re a bride who didn’t splurge on your invitation, I STILL want to photograph it and here’s why!
You may not be in love with your invitation but I really need it on your wedding day. The invitation usually plays a big role in the bridal detail shots… especially if the invites are neutral in colour and have beautiful script or serif fonts! In the past I’ve had some brides who have said “Oh, I forgot the invitation but that’s okay, I don’t need a picture of it!” and that’s why I’m writing this post.
I don’t need the invitation just because I want to document what it looked like, I need the invitations to use them as a “connection element” throughout the other detail shots! If I’m able to use a similar element in your detail shots, that will help them pair together so much easier! I usually use my bride’s invitations for the large suite shot, earrings and multiple ring shots!!
So if you’re preparing for your wedding in the upcoming months – don’t forget your Wedding stationary!
Happy Wedding Wednesday!
