Have you taken your engagement photos yet? We must say – we often love the images from engagement sessions even more than wedding portraits. Engagement photos are so carefree…plus, you can practically feel the love bursting from the images.

Wedding invitations with photos have sprung up all over the stationery scene over the past 5-10 years. The rise of online stationery shops has made it easy for couples to create a suite using photos. Simply upload and personalize till you love it.

But for us…there was always something missing. While photo invites are fun and oh-so-sweet, we longed for that extra something that made them feel…extraordinary. After all, your wedding invitation is a once-in-a-lifetime piece of stationery. We challenged our design team to create photo wedding invitation that felt luxurious, but had an affordable price tag. And boy, did they deliver!

Introducing: the Photo Perfect Suite

Isn’t it lovely? This invitation has two layers. The bottom one is your photograph, digitally printed on high-quality paper stock. Your guests will love hanging onto this keepsake and pinning it on their fridge or even framing it.

The top layer includes your custom wedding invitation wording printed on vellum paper. First, let’s talk about that pretty printing. Instead of using flat digital printing, your invitation verse is printed thermography. This classic printing technique results in glossy, raised ink that you can feel with your fingertips. And that vellum paper (we swoon!). It’s translucent which means you see a hint of your photo underneath it. Instant ethereal vibes.
