Hi – Okay, so we got our proofs back and now we need to pick our picture! We have narrowed down to 2 pics (only using one for STD). The first pic we love because its just a great picture of all of us, and of course includes our furbaby Lilly in the pic. Faces are clear and we look happy. But it just seems a little cookie cutter and feels a little too holiday card photo-ish to us. Not sure fits for what we want our STD to transpose.
The next one is also great, we like the emotion, love, and overall look of the picture, but our only concern is you cant really see our faces and our eyes are closed. We dont want ppl to be disappointed they cant see us well. We still think its a beautiful picture nonetheless.
So pleeeeease help us out and let me know which one you like and why!! I have also included samples of the STD design we would use. The one with the STD on the side would be for the couple pic. The one with the design across the bottom would be for the family photo. Sorry for the large photos! (STD images courtesy AugustPress via etsy)

They’re both such great photos! I tend to agree with you about the holiday card thing for #1 (make a holiday card!), so my vote is for #2! Happy save the date-ing! 🙂

Oh this is a tough one ! First of all, you two are gorgeous people !! And Lilly is absolutely adorable 🙂
As for the STD pic… well you cant go wrong with either of them ! Beautiful photos !
That being said, I think I like the 2nd one better. I love the design and the emotion. It does look more wedding-y 🙂 You can almost feel the love just looking at it 🙂

First of all… wow, you are one good-looking couple! These pics are amazing so I see where you’re having trouble but I vote for #2. Save-The-Date Cards are becoming a lot more artistic these days and I don’t think it’s necessary to have full clear shots of your faces for it to be appropriate. I actually love that you’re not looking at the camera and are focused on each other because it really shows the love between you two – definitely important when announcing your wedding!

When you were describing the second one, I thought it was going to be really obscured. It’s really not bad at all! I think you guys are still pretty clear, especially since everyone who will be getting one will know who you are.
I like the design of the second one.

Ahh you guys are so cute!! I love doggies but won’t his face be covered by the wording across the bottom?

Both photos are really awesome… I agree that you can’t go wrong. I voted for number 2 though.

You guys are such a beautiful couple, wow! I absolutely love both pictures, so the good news whichever one you choose will look amazing. I would typically vote for the first one because I like to see people’s faces, but I think I’m gonna have to go with number two, I love it and how it captures your love =] Did I mention you two are beautiful??

They are both fantastic pictures and your Save-The-Date Cards will look good with either of them. But I vote for #2, it is so cute!
