You have photographed your engagement session and now it’s time to notify your guests of your date. If you have guests coming in from out of town and traveling or if hosting on a holiday weekend, you definitely want to have those guests aware of your wedding date to providing plenty of advance notice about the upcoming nuptials.

Minted Photographer and New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre provides step-by-step instructions and deadlines on how to plan, create, and approach your wedding Save the Date cards in a few, easy steps.

Schedule the Engagement Session

Schedule your engagement session with New Jersey Wedding Photographer and communicate your needs for your Save the Dates and the deadlines. Notify our team that you would like to have your photographs by a specific deadline to go to print.

Choose Favorites

When creating your timeline, factor in the delivery time from your session. Upon gallery delivery, choose ‘select’ images for your Save the Date cards. Furthermore, delivery times are approximately 4-6 weeks during the off-season (winter months of January-March) and 6-8 weeks during the height of the season.

Provide Guests Notice

Create that shipment deadline and stick to it. We recommend anywhere from 6-8 months for local weddings. For guests traveling for a destination wedding, we recommend 8-12 months to providing guests with ample notification.

Create Your Guest List

To keep it as simple as possible (and accessible as possible). We recommend creating a document of your guest list to stay organized (and up to date with details). Minted has created an address book ‘address assistant’ spreadsheet for you. We recommend to upload your guest addresses direct to their site for your cards to be shipped direct to guests.

Plan on finalizing that guest list and having all of those addresses ready for shipment and saved. Additionally, once saved in your address assistant spreadsheet, re-upload your spreadsheet into Minted (or uploading all contacts individually).

Create your Save the Date

We have shared your online gallery. You have chosen your favorite ‘select’ images. You have your guest list final. Now it’s time to move images over to the Minted design platform and get that Save the Date designed, printed, and sent to notify all guests of your date! Yay! Cue the bubbly!

We cannot wait to see our final ‘select’ images printed in your beautiful Save the Date card when we photograph your day of details!

Until then, love and light,

xoxo, Michelle

From overlooking the Hudson at the Battery, to viewing the sunset glittering over the waters at Cape May Beach, there are so many beautiful destinations between New York and New Jersey to choose from.

As a wedding photographer, it is upmost important to make that engagement session so special to your and your fiancé. We could spend all day recommend beautiful venues, yet if it does speak to you and your love story, then uhhh, that’s not so special.

Your session is designed to compliment your love story. Your session is designed to curate your wedding day and we are so thrilled to begin planning those very steps!

Here are just a few tips to get us started on creating that EPIC, thoughtfully curated, and effortless engagement session preserving these moments to last a lifetime.

With love and joy,

Michelle

Plan Your Session Aesthetic and Vibe

While working beside New York and New Jersey bridal clients, it is always my goal and best intention to design a romantic engagement session that best compliments the clients wedding and provides a great introduction to the wedding day. Engagement session photographs (will most likely) be printed and utilized for Save the Dates. With that being said and while planning your session and all session details, you want to think about the vision of your day and creating that chic, jaw-dropping and romantic engagement session for you and your fiancé.

Execute That Aesthetic

Styling is key while coming to sessions. It is essential to first create a ‘vision board’ together and once you have a vision finalized, then move forward with nailing down the details.

Book Your Venue(s)

Once your engagement session vision is accomplished, execute on the first big step, choosing your dream engagement session venue! Whether this be at a (what may seem like) a public location or private, it’s always best to inquire with the venue and while photograph at their property to see if a permit fee is required to photograph at their property for the time planned. If a permit fee is required, applications are required to be completed month(s) prior to the session.

Outsource the Talent & Book Vendor Team(s)

If your vision includes talent such as outfit changes and accessories, which may include on-location styling, hair, makeup, furniture rentals (example: champagne tower and glasses), vehicles (antique vehicles), or furniture, it would be ideal to then inquire with vendors one at a time and book your vendors for your session.

Invite a Friend

Yes, you read that correctly! Invite a friend to your New Jersey engagement session. Request for a family member and/or friend to assist the day of the session. Like the wedding day sessions move pretty fast, especially if there are several locations. I recommend to request for your maid-of-honor (or bestie) to tag along, take some behind the scenes for your social media, assist with carrying your bag, and can assist with any additional details, like possibly care for your pup if you plan on incorporating your fur baby!
