Hey guys, its Taylor & I have some exciting news for Holli B fans and brides everywhere: We can design your custom wedding invitations!
I recently designed this wedding invitation for my best friend, Lindsay. Her wedding is in May. And I am her maid of honor. I am so incredibly excited. I wish everyone could meet her, she is the sweetest person I know and I love her so much.
Her colors are sage green and brown and she wanted a paisley design, so that is what we did! The invitations are printed on linen paper which give the invitations an elegant look and a formal feel. But the bright paisley design is still so fun!
We packaged the invitations in a cute basket and tied a brown and green ribbon around them. We LOVE a pretty presentation! Don’t you?
The invitations came with a reception/accommodations card. She did not send an RSVP card out, but we can do those too, if you need one.
To keep everything consistent and as beautiful as possible we printed the return address on the back flap of the linen envelopes.
We also designed a thank you card using one of their engagement photos and incorporating the paisley design that Lindsay & Ryan love so much.
We can also design Save the Date cards, shower invites and really any kind of printed piece you might need for your wedding. The best part is that it can be designed however you want it to look. We can match the style, colors, theme, look and of course budget of your wedding!
Email us soon, so we can get started right away: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check back soon, we are going to post some of the other invitations we have been working on.
I have been meaning to blog about this for about 3 months now. Meet the newest Holli B. Photography employee… Taylor…
If you are a old school blog follower you will remember several blog posts related to Taylor and her weekend wedding extravaganza. I photographed her wedding last June and we became inseparable somewhere along the way.
I really cannot believe that we met for the first time at our consultation and now we are this good of friends. Taylor, was one of my first brides to COMPLETELY trust me. I have gotten MUCH better at coaching brides to do unique or out of the ordinary things but Taylor was the first bride to say “do whatever you want with us”- so I took them to a field and the field obsession began. Anyway, as you know I have been looking to hire someone part-time for awhile now to help with several different areas of my business. Taylor was a great fit for many reasons.
#1 being- She is awesome.
#2 She is a recent bride (so she LOVES weddings, is full of wedding related advice, and loves me :)
#3 She works at an awesome graphic design company, Old Hat Creative, and we are quickly becoming good business friends
#4 She attends my church/ d-group so we get to hang out multiple times per week.
#5 Her hubby is just as cool as she is.
#6 They dont have kids, meaning they love ours and have lots of spare time!
#7 She will take pictures ANYWHERE.
#8 Its really great to have someone young, hip, and newly married to bounce ideas off of as well. For example, Taylor LOVES sepia tones. I hardly EVER use sepia toning but she told me she loves it and this was one of her favorite images….
first time to use my funky green flower chairs…
I wont continue with her greatness….
Her job requirements will include designing all of my albums (YEAH!), assisting me at some weddings, designing any and all types of press products (save the date cards, baby and senior announcements, guest books, Christmas cards etc) editing, periodically blogging, loving my children as her own, and laughing at all my jokes. In return she gets to have a lifetime of free photography from yours truly. JK, I am really paying her. Free photography is a perk :) You can contact her at email@example.com.
Taylor, I cannot imagine my life without you in it. Thanks for ALL that you do.
I had a couple of people send me their resume for my part time job opening- thank you! I will keep them on file!
So I did a couple of these custom graduation announcements last year and I think they are such a great idea. Instead of using the boring old senior announcements that you buy thru your school- have one custom designed for you! You can pick your favorite quote, school colors, images- all of it! Here is a recent senior announcement I did for Veronica who drove down from Tulsa to shoot with me a couple of months ago.
this is the front of the 5×5 card
this is the middle section that opens up to be a 5×10 of the card that folds in the center
this is the back
More cards to come! I am shooting seniors and bridals like crazy!
