Bespoke Design: Photo Engagement Party Invitations | New York Wedding Invitations

There's a big trend right now for couples to use photos in as many ways as possible. Almost everybody does engagement photos now, so why not use those amazing photos for more than just a Save the Date or holiday card? I happen to be a photo cherisher myself, so I love the idea of couples using their photos in creative ways.

When my husband's cousin asked me to design her engagement party invitations using some of her favorite engagement photos, I was excited to create something that was elegant and sophisticated, while still showing off her beautiful photos.

Since I had a photo on each side of the card, we wanted the front to be clean and simple, while framing the photo beautifully. I love the way the script "engaged" turned out.

For the reverse side of the cards, there was a lot of information that needed to be printed over another photo. Adding a shaded background helped the information stand out, and still maintained the visibility of the photo.

The cards were flat printed on pearl shimmer paper. The shimmer of the paper really enhanced the beautiful glow of the sun peeking through on the information side of the cards. I think it's a great example of how the paper choice can perfectly compliment a design element.

Congratulations to Jess & Allen! We're so thrilled for your engagement, and I am honored to have designed your cards!
