I am a big fan of pre-wedding photo shoots. I know I've said it before but I'll say it again - I think they're great for helping you find your 'in front of camera mojo' before the big day. But they can also have another purpose - they can provide excellent images for some really individual save the date cards.
If this is something you'd like to do, talk to your photographer because they're bound to have some ideas and they'll also be able to make sure that they get the right shots too (and there's every possibility they'll be able to print them too for a little extra cost).
So get out there, have some fun in front of the camera, create something really personal and start the countdown to your wedding with lots of smiles...
Above - I really love this film strip bike shoot. Lots of fun and lots of personality and the dog sat in the bike basket is a genius touch! Image - 4 The Wedding
Above - such a great idea for a few shots on a pre-wedding - just pen the designs you want on some big sheets (make them bold so they'll show up in the pics) and take them along to the shoot. Image - Erin Mcfarland
Above - brilliant quirky pics with the couple in question laying down on the grass and posing with the 'save the date' case. More fun and this would certainly make guests smile when these cards drop through the door. Image - Kyle Hale
Above - more loved up gorgeousness with these beautiful pics. There's no harm in getting a little dreamy for your save the date shots and the date sign makes it very clear. Have these images printed on one side of a postcard and then print more details on the reverse. Image - Love & Lavender
Above - ok, totally LOVE this pic. I actually want to do this myself... Image - via My WV Wedding
Above - another image I just really like. The fabric letters, the outfits, the poses, the simplicity of this card, it all works really well. Image - via Wedding Chicks
Above - now if you've ever wanted your name in lights, this is the shot for you! Easy to set up outside a cinema and then get busy with Photoshop afterwards to add in your details. Image - Wedding Invitation Shop
