Taking the Plunge

There are lots of beautiful save-the-date cards on the market, but have you considered making your own (with the help, perhaps, of a professional photographer)? A certain Miller sent me a link to an amazing and inspiring underwater engagement portrait session that became an amazing set of save-the-date cards.

The talented Kelty of Steep Street in Portland took these sweet pics of Jeff and Stacey “taking the plunge.” I have a thing about getting water in my nose, so I don’t know that I’d attempt to replicate these awesome photos (of which you can see more here) but they’re a great jumping off point oooh punny if you’re part of a pair thinking about doing something out of the ordinary for your engagement portraits or save-the-date cards.

Or do you think this sort of thing is just a bit too “oh em gee, look at how awesome we are”?

    See, now, this is a bit of OMG that I can get behind, because it is so beautifully done. A good graphic designer helped keep it classy.

    Now, if the bride shows up to the wedding with a fishtail, then I’ll have to rethink my assessment…

  2. What a fun and unique idea!! The photography is beautiful and I hope they tie this in further to their invitations 🙂

    When my husband and I renewed our vows, we made save the date cards in a similar vein. We were photographed wrapped in rope with a caption of ‘tying the knot tighter’.
    To this day I still see that photograph on friends and families ‘fridges. wonderful way to include a bit of fun and whimsy into a normally formal and dry ritual.
