Tips for Stunning Photo Invitations

Personally, I LOVE when couples want to use their engagement photos. Whether it is requested on a save the date or an invitation, I am always careful to be sure I am designing in line with the level of formality the couple wants. I encourage them to get the most out their photography, and of course I always request the photos come direct from the photographer so they can provide the best high quality image for our specifications.

Consider cropping.

The photo you choose can set the mood. The way a photo is cropped also makes an impact. Photos cropped too close can pose a problem for production. Choose a photo that offers some space around your faces. Some styles offer options to include more than one photo, too.

Go full color for fun, or choose a monochromatic photo to make a statement. 

By simply changing the photo to black and white your invitation emits a more classic, sophisticated look. Like this Glam Frame Photo Invitation featuring a swirling border in your choice of foil color. Choose the design color to put your look to every part of the unique wedding invitation.
