Basic Invite | Boise, Idaho | Wedding, Event Invitations Photography

Do you happen to have a special occasion coming up in your life? If so, allow me to share a little bit about this jewel of a stationary company with you! Basic Invite gave me the opportunity to sample some of their product and share a little bit about it! I have to say I totally, honestly fell in love with their product! Even my teenage daughter who walked by and took a look, told me to save the catalogue for her! She thought it was all so pretty and they have styles for so many life events, including graduations invitations, which she will be needing this year!  I found their whole range of products to be absolutely beautiful as well!

Next to the photo inspired invitations (because obviously those would be my favorite, 😉 ), the transparent ones were a definite stand out option to me! They are just so unique and beautiful. There are so may styles to choose from as well!

Another thing I love about Basic Invite is their nearly unlimited colors and styles – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online! It is all so user friendly too! Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card using over 180 different color options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. That was so fun to play with! I personally love clean lines and keeping things simple, so getting to select exact color combinations to match my photographs was huge to me! You can see a couple of the invitations I designed with my photographs below! There is a style and color combination to match just about every wedding / event theme and color pallet!

I also love how I could select an invitation that flawlessly matched my photographs! How gorgeous is this!!!

 

Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

There are over 1000 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards! SO MANY OPTIONS! It was so fun to shop their selection!

The convenience of a Free Address Collection Service is also such an added bonus – Use their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.

Free Wedding Websites – Their all-new wedding websites are completely customizable just like their wedding invitations! These wedding websites are mobile friendly and super easy to use. You can instantly upload all of your wedding details along with images and a map with directions which is very convenient for your guests. Choose from 180 custom colors and even choose a design to match your wedding invitation suite! They are gorgeous!

Keepsake Guest Books are another option that Basic Invites offer – Perfectly personalized wedding guest books are the perfect addition to your wedding day stationery. These customizable guest books have a ring hidden inside which allows them to lay perfectly flat for a classy and convenient look. With sophisticated designed pages it’s the perfect opportunity for your wedding guests to leave sweet words and well wishes!

 

Again how stunning are the photo invites! I would pick them every time but of course I love pictures! 🙂

I just can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed my experience with Basic Invite and the product they provided! I do plan on saving their catalogue and using them for my daughter’s senior invitations! If you need any more information in regard to them, I hope you look them up here…

Home Life | Boise, Idaho | Lifestyle Photographer

Lifestyle sessions are some of my all-time favorite sessions to photograph. I love the idea of kids making memories with their parents, in their home space, while being photographed. Someday these pictures are going to be reminders of the love and fun they were surrounded with while growing up, and that is everything to me! Thanks for having me into your home Skyler and Beatrice! You have such a beautiful family! 




The Mikelson Family | Portland and Pacific City, Oregon | Family Photographer

One day several years back, I received a message on my business page saying (basically), “Hi I’m Sarah! I love your work and I am a photographer too! Want to meet for coffee sometime?” Of course I did! Fast forward to now, she is one of  my closest friends and her family is so special to me and mine. I am so grateful for the friendship social media has made possible and for the way it allows us all to stay connected!

Now, go grab a cup of coffee if you feel like it, and check out their adorable growing family! They will be welcoming a sweet little man soon and I cannot wait to meet him!
