Anne and Brian’s Wedding Invites

August 28th, 2011 by Nate

A quick look at the finished product of Anne and Brian’s wedding invites. The photography is from their engagement photoshoot I did a while back. The photos worked really well for the style they were looking for. The maps were hand drawn/watercolored and were initially in color, but I decided for the sake of consistency they should be turned grayscale to match the rest of the invitation.

Nate and Sara’s Wedding Invites

June 8th, 2011 by Nate

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!
