Our Save The Date Photo Session

Olivia-Blake-Save-The-Date-ShootFirst off, happy Christmas Eve! Did time not zoom by or what?! Second, I could not be more excited to finally share our Save The Date photo session! Truth be told, we haven’t even finished up the guest list…buut hey, this is a start, right? 😉 For my Blogger Bride series with Style Me Pretty, you can read all about our Save The Date shoot and see the full range of photos – they have a gallery on my page that you can click into if you’d like to get the full photo scoop! I fell in love with this gorgeous red sequin Badgley Mischka gown from Rent the Runway – it could not have turned out more perfect with Blake’s solid black look, don’t you think? All around classy and glam, just what I had in mind when brainstorming for this shoot.

The evening we snapped these photos, we were actually headed to a formal event with Blake’s family and I asked our photographer to meet us beforehand to just to get a few pictures that we could use for our Save The Date cards. It worked out that we were already planning to be super dolled up, so I had to make the most of it (and I only had the dress for three days, ha!) and the timing worked out perfectly – not to mention popping a bottle of bubbly made for a nice little celebratory pre-game to the event, ha. 😉

I’d been thinking up the perfect Save The Date idea for quite some time (and yes, I most definitely used Pinterest for inspo – it’s THE best!), and everything I kept gravitating towards was really simple but romantic, and left a lot of blank space at the top of the image to add “Save The Date” in a pretty scripty font. Hence, why we chose the rooftop of our first apartment’s parking garage – lots of blank white space and not a cloud in the sky, (…and more importantly, no one around to stare at us during an intimate shoot) it was perfect!

Okay, I hope you enjoy – I can’t wait to get our cards made and send them out to friends and family!! We could not be more in love with how this shoot turned out!
