PHOTOS & IMAGES FOR INVITATIONS
Photos provide a unique and beautiful image to enhance wedding stationery into a custom creation.
If you are ordering photo invitations, please refer to these photo tips:
If you are using a digital camera:
* Please turn off date stamp OFF.
* Please make sure camera is set to highest resolution.
* Natural light is best. Try to take photo during peak daylighthours.
* If using a flash, stay in the flash range. Pictures taken out of flash range will
be too dark.
* If you don't know your flash range, then take the picture no further than
five feet away.
* Solid color backgrounds are best. Patterns can take away from features and
* Black or white fabric that is not sheer and does not have shimmer and using
natural lighting creates a beautiful shot!
* Capturing the moment, instead of posting, makes great photos.
* Specific aspects such as a baby's little hands, feet, ears etc. are very sweet!
Taking the Picture:
* Stand fairly close, but not too close, above the object, or the picture could be
out of focus.
* If the picture is of people, the subjects may or may not want to look directly
at the camera.
* Try several different angles.
* You can take several delayed shots of the same position, allows for movement
and expression changes.
* If you are taking a picture of a baby, focus on the baby in the picture; your
goal is to fill the picture area with your baby's body.
Sending the Finished Picture:
* When using a scanner, please clean the scanner top first. Any dust on the
scanner will pick up on the picture that you send. Scan pictures at 600 dpi,
in color, for the best resolution/type of picture.
* The file sizes of the pictures should be LARGE. Trying sending only
1-3 pictures per email to prevent e-mail system from shrinking pictures.
* Send pictures in natural color. In some cases, we may be able to change them
to black & white or sepia.

FILE TYPE: Vendor requirements vary, please consult your
invitation consultant for version needed for photos,
logos, motifs or images to determine what is acceptable.
DPI (dots per inch): 300 DPI, may be acceptable, but preferably 600 DPI
or greater is best
