Having your engagement photos make an appearance on your Save The Date (S-T-D) Cards is a great way to “show off” you and your fiance. By printing them on your S-T-D’s you don’t have to worry about having them on your formal invitations or day of stationery. You want to make sure you take your photos right away so that you have plenty of time for your photographer to send you a disc of all of your edited photos that can be forwarded to your stationery designer. Your S-T-D’s will need to be sent 6-8 months before your wedding.
A great discussion to have with your photographer is the style of pictures that you’d want to have. If you’re sending out a formal card + envelope style then you may want posed/staged photos. Photo journalistic style photos look great on styles that focus on your pictures as the main design aspect. If you’re doing a more unique style such as a movie poster then you’d want the shots to be similar to those you would see on real life billboard and movie posters.
I’ve gathered some images from around the web to give you some inspiration to plan your photo shoot. The most important thing is to have fun!
