Today’s DIY- Wedding Ideas feature comes from a very talented Lara Braithwaite of Bella Puzzles Too. Her company does creative wedding puzzle projects. This feature is of a wedding puzzle save the date made from their engagement shoot. I encourage you to visit her blog to find out more ways that she can inspire your wedding day.
Jen and Brett selected an image from their engagement photo session at the 2011 San Diego County Fair.
Ferris wheels, photo booths, (and that spinning swing ride whose name I don’t know and have never had the courage to ride)…it’s obvious they had a fun photo session.
You can see more of their engagement photos on the Narrative Images blog.
Jen’s two top choices for her photo puzzle were the ferris wheel photo you see below and one with a swing spinning in the background.
The swing photo is my favorite of the series (What? You haven’t checked those you yet? Get over there!) but the busy nature of that photo didn’t leave a lot of space for adding any shaped puzzle pieces.
Jen and I both wanted those pieces to show up clearly, so together we decided to use the photo from the ferris wheel.
The blue space at the right of the photo was perfect for writing the wedding date vertically. The juicy red of the ferris wheel cab was ideal for a heart-shaped puzzle piece.
Rick Unis and Bernadette Johnston of San Diego’s Narrative Images Photography were recently voted one of the top 3 photography studios in San Diego. They are dedicated to a docu-narrative-journalism style of photography.
“It is our intention to provide authentic images that are derived from real moments, and in this light, we feel photography allows us to translate life into art. When you look at your photos, we want you to see nothing other than who you are, reflected back to you.”
Rick and Bernadette do a lot of wedding photography but they also do celebrity work (hello, Kevin Bacon!), commercial photography, and documentary projects. They seem to do work all around the country, so if you like what you see on their site and you’re shopping for a photographer keep them in mind.
