save the date flipbook

Filed in general shot by on at

One of the things we love most about our job is getting to unleash the creative genius within! When one of our clients wants a custom-designed card or invitation, we pull out all the stops to make sure it’s unlike anything else their guests will have ever seen before! Check out this totally fun “Save the Date” that we custom designed for our fabulous clients, Courtney and Joe! We shot a 14-frame sequence during their engagement shoot, with a project like this in mind. Then, we put it all together, and this is the end result!

This is just the digital version – you kind of have to use your imagination to envision how much cooler this project is in print form. The print version is a 2×3 little soft cover book, that “flips” to animate the sequence. Just imagine getting one of these little booklets in the mail from one of your friends…I mean, seriously, wouldn’t you be impressed? I know I would, and I would wish I had thought of it first. These are SO cool!! I think they would make AMAZING invitations, too, for a couple who is looking for something completely unique and different to represent themselves.

*Press the play button is the middle of the flip book to watch the sequence! We set the slides to transition quickly to give it a “flip book” feel, but they can be viewed individually at the end if you’d like to take a closer look at something.

If you’re interested in having us design something totally unique and different for your wedding or event, let us know! We’d love to get crackin’ on your project! :)

    It is pretty amazing and unique. Although I may have a slight bias. :)

As most of you know, Ben and I do a lot of custom graphic design work for our wonderful clients; but, we don’t usually share any of it on the blog. ┬áThis one, however, was extra fun and exciting, and totally worth sharing!

Kristen and Brian wanted something very unique and different for their Save the Date card, and they wanted to incorporate an old-fashioned looking photo booth sequence. So, with that in mind, we took a whole bunch of “photo booth-ish” shots during their engagement session, gave them a vintage look and feel during post-process, and inserted them into the awesome photo booth frame that you see below. The rest of the card’s design came from our imaginations, and we were pretty happy with the results. Check it out!! :)

Having your Save the Date cards, Thank-You cards, or even Invitations designed using the photos from your engagement session is a great way to get your hands on a piece of wedding memorabilia that is uniquely yours! Family and friends love them (because they are plastered with your gorgeous faces), and no one else will have anything like them, so your cards will stand out in a sea of boring, same-as-they-ever-were cards! We design everything completely from scratch, so we can take your vision, and make it come to life!!*

(*A lot of people think, “Oh, custom-design work? I’m sure I can’t afford that!” But, actually, it’s not as expensive as you might think, and the results are far superior to any of the fill-in-the-blank or do-it-yourself-at-home card options that are out there. Ask us about it…you’ll be sooooo glad you did!!)
