It’s Friday “Behind the Design” day and we’re taking a peek into one of Rachel’s newest Wedding Invitation Suites: Geometric Dragonfly.

It’s no secret that geometrics are hot in the wedding industry. Now combine those bright, bold shapes to create a dragonfly inspired theme and you have something totally fresh. That is what I had in mind with this design suite and it was so much fun to create! I used a sparkly glitter texture throughout the suite pieces and it really adds another fun and modern element. The tall, skinny fonts and white space really make this modern design perfect for the modern couple looking for something new and different.

Behind the Design: Watercolor Mason Jar

Megan -MagnetStreet Behind the Design
Here’s Megan to tell us about her inspiration behind the design: Watercolor Mason Jar

“This design was inspired by combining two trends; watercolor and mason jars. It has the elegance of rich watercolors, overlaid with playful mason jars. The script font—EmmaScript—works together with the organic feel of the mason jars and watercolor, while the straight lines of Avenir keep it clean and modern. I imagine a fun and modern couple that want to incorporate a vintage twist. This couple will have tiny luxurious details and they have a love for handmade flare. And even though they have multiple styles, their entire wedding goes together seamlessly.”

What do you think about Watercolor Mason Jar for a modern couple with a love for vintage?

Engagement Photo Idea: Props

Categories Photography + Real Weddings

Meet Kayla and Jacob. Today, we’re kicking off our series of 3 engagement sessions featuring props! What’s a prop? Anything that lends support. So, as far as engagement photography goes, props can be anything from physical items that you hold in your hand or wear on your body, to even a building, tree, or babbling brook … anything really.

5 REASONS WHY USING PROPS IN YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS IS A GREAT IDEA:

1. Props help to show off your personality, flair, hobby and unique wedding style.
2. Props add visually interesting elements to your photos.
3. Props bring a level of drama and storytelling to your e-session.
4. Props can be used to introduce your wedding theme on a multi-photo Save the Date postcard or magnet.
5. Using props encourages spontaneity–avoiding awkward or unauthentic posing. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

Among the first words Kayla spoke to her photographer were “I’ve got a 23 piece vintage camera collection I plan on using for decor at the wedding.” So what did Kayla and Becca from B. Jones Photography do? They collaborated on concept, outfits, and props for this sweet session that hints at their upcoming wedding. Enjoy!
