Engagement Story: Lara and Ben's "Save the Date"

One of my favorite things about my job is getting to tell stories for my friends and family. I have known Ben and his family a very long time- we all grew up together at church. We have shared in some pretty heavy life experiences and I know that my family is so thankful for Ben's. I was so thrilled to hear that Ben had met Lara- it was so exciting getting to meet her and learn how much I adore her!

Lara had this awesome idea for a save the date, so as a little prelude to the engagement shoot we set up a "photobooth" and cranked out so cute pictures! Here are some of the favorites (not all made it to the final product) and check out the finished product at the end!

So then Ben and Lara waded through all the images to choose these favorite nine to go on the front of the save the date. We formed photo strips...

Don't you LOVE all the colors of the paper and the envelopes?!
