I love engagement photos. Not only do they give me a chance to get to know my couples before I show up to their wedding venue, they’re also a fun way to create a unique piece of art that you might not have time for on your wedding day—or that might be impossible in your wedding attire!
In hindsight, I wish I’d considered having a set of engagement photos taken of my now-husband and I. And no—I’m not just saying that because I’m a wedding photographer now! I’d love to have some non-selfie photos from before we were married to hang on my walls, show my son, and flip through when I’m feeling sentimental. But most recently, the engagement-shoot-worthy goodies that have caught my eye are Basic Invite’s photo guest book offerings.
Guest books are one of those wedding details that are easy to overlook, but a tiny bit of planning makes them into a keepsake you’ll pick up and enjoy over and over. What better way to make them perfectly yours than to have your engagement photo printed on the cover?
Can’t you just picture one of these sweet photo guest books sitting out during cocktail hour, encouraging your guests to jot down a memory, note of congratulations, or a bit of advice for you and your partner to read later? As a photographer, I know it’s one thoughtful detail I’d be sure to snap a picture of.
Basic Invite’s suite of design options means you can customize the cover to match your aesthetic without having to do much more than drop in your favorite photo and type your names. Of course, if you want to get detailed and make your book match your theme exactly, you can—there are more than 180 color options, and you can really go nuts with the fonts and layout if that brings you joy!
And if you like things that match, you’ll love putting your beautiful engagement photos into Basic Invite’s many invitations online. For my own wedding, I used them for magnetic save-the-dates, then followed up with a suite of matching floral invitations and finally, thank you notes!
Trust me when I say that adjusting the color of each petal in the design to match my color palette was extremely satisfying—it’s basically an online coloring book. It’s the best.
