We probably a bit more quirky and artsy than many. We took a few pictures for our Save the Dates and were completely delighted with how our feet looked lined up with my dog’s (he’s always with us). The photog didn’t “get” what made us smile about the shots and only gave us one to use.
I staged the same shot again this afternoon and we’ve been smiling goofily over it since. It’s like our spoof on American Gothic.
We like it. I think our creative friends will like it. A few won’t get it, though (including someone from another wedding board who I showed these to). Should we care?

It’s cute I guess, if you feel it sums up how you are as a couple then go for it!

@nickygettingmarried: Standard Save the Date stuff…names, date, city, and wedding website. Here’s the card we’re using from the designer’s site:

@hotwings: Totally. Originally, I had a friend taking the shots and she wanted us doing the standard stuff. I had an image in my head of our feet and told her, but she didn’t really think it was a good idea. She took a bunch of shots, but only gave me one…that wasn’t very good.
So, after work today, my Fiance and I went back out to the one spot in the neighborhood where there’s brick sidewalk and a brick wall. I swept most of the cherry blossom petals away and put my camera on a stool. After I took one timed shot, a law student came walking by and offered to take a few. Thankfully, he knew how to shoot with my Nikon and got a bunch of the shots I wanted.
I photograph my golden A LOT, so he’s pretty good about staying put when the camera is out. He was a champ. 🙂

I LOVE it! Maybe I am like you… but I like this better than a lot of cheesy staring into each other’s eyes type of thing. If this represents you, then go for it! Don’t see why anyone would find it weird.

I LOVE it. I’m an animal person though, but I think it’s perfect!! I vote black and white.

Love the black and white!!! If it symbolizes you as a couple, who cares if others get it? 🙂
