Sara and Nate Save the Date

February 15th, 2011 by Nate

I love a good project that is quick, fun, and turns out great. My best friend /college roommate is to be married this year to a wonderfully perfect girl and I all but insisted that they let me help out with their save the dates and invitations. I wanted to come up with something that was as goofy, playful, and colorful as they are – something that the recipient would think, “That is sooo them!” After a brainstorming session, we decided to go for a photogrid approach, but with the photos all interacting with each other in some way. Front and center we wanted a nice picture of them together, but all around would be individual shots of them reacting in different ways. Plus Mini-Wheats, their kitty (which we rescued from certain death and nursed back to health in our college dorm room). All we needed was to shoot the images we had sketched up.

A fast photoshoot provided all the images I needed and the card came together pretty quickly after that. Finally, we had it printed on heavy glossy front/matte back stock. Excited to move on to the invitations!
