Ashley and David

All of our sessions are special but this one especially as Ashley is our dear friend. We were so happy to finally meet David, he is a super sweet guy and we couldn’t be happier for Ashley. For their session they had a beautiful full moon which was the last one for 2020 and a gorgeous sky. They made memories that beautiful evening that will be cherished for years to come.

We love seeing extended families vacation together. There’s just something about all the different generations making memories together that makes it so special.  It was a very foggy evening but that didn’t stop this beautiful family from having a ton of fun at their session.  The memories that were made that evening will be cherished for a lifetime.

This post is in partnership with Basic Invite. Content and photos are our own.

Christmas Card from Basic Invite

We are so excited to have partnered with Basic Invite.  It was so fun to create our Holiday cards with such ease and beauty. We tried 5 of Basic Invite’s holiday card designs. Our favorite combination was the Bracket shape and our favorite paper is the Double Thick Matte.

There are many things that separate Basic Invite from other card companies.

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company. This was so helpful in deciding what colors look best with each of the photos we chose.

We love that Basic Invite offers Custom Samples- Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print in real life and make sure the card is perfect in every way.

With over  40 Different Colors of Envelopes to choose from, this makes just a simple envelope fun and festive.  With all these different  options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely, no sticky lips here.

We were thrilled with having the option of Basic Invite’s address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

To add some holiday sparkle and bling to your cards, Basic Invite has the option of gold, silver, and rose gold foil. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. This feature is great for holiday party invite template.
