A lot of couples take engagement photos because it is the “engaged” thing to do!

However what do you do with all those photos after the engagement session?
Surely you can do more than just putting them in a frame or an album..

2. Get Your Guests Excited About Your Big Day
I imagine you want your guests to be as excited about your wedding as you are! Trust me, they are more excited seeing both of your faces than pretty flowers and fancy fonts.
P.S. Nothing wrong with the above things because I’m a sucker for them too!
“I have had nothing but positive responses regarding my photo wedding invites. People stated that knowing the type of people we are that best captured that.” -Lisa

“I loved the idea of something personal, something that felt like us I guess. We aren’t really formal/fancy people and this felt right.
I made the decision to go this route but my husband loved the idea as well. We had nothing but positive comments, people actually didn’t want to send the rsvp cards back because they wanted them to keep and put on their refrigerators :)” -Erin
That’s definitely a good problem to have when your guests don’t want to send your RSVP card back because they want to keep it themselves lol
Your engagement photos give your guests a glimpse of what your wedding will be like.
If you are a fun and adventurous couple, make sure your photographer capture that!

Just think about all the time, effort and money you’ve spent on them, I’m guessing you would want your wedding invitations to last for a long time, right?
