Styling + Photographing Wedding Paper

After hours of collaborating and designing a wedding suite for a couples big day, the most exciting thing is to finally see it in print! (and of course, hear the Bride's reaction when she sees them) The soft cotton paper, the texture of beautiful letterpress or engraved art and the flowy ribbon can make an artist's heart skip a beat! When sending off the paper suites to their new home, every designer hopes to one day see them again. Yes photographers, we are talking to you. :) We LOVE seeing how you capture these little pieces of art and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to do so! 

When photographing an invitation suite, I always create a little mental check list of the details to capture. I also plan in advance the styling and look I'm going for. Don't be afraid to reference styled suites on Pinterest or the way other photographers approach it. Doing a little homework before hand never hurts.  

Ok! Now, want to see an example of pretty styling? Katherine and Cory's wedding invitation was the perfect combination of feminine elegance mixed with the shabby chic nature of their southern farm wedding in Texas. The styling was spot on! You can find more of their wedding images on Style Me Pretty.  Styling and Photography by Mustard Seed Photography
