Capturing the essence of a moment is an essential piece to the art of photography. Good photographers encapsulate that essence which couples respond emotionally to when they view their images later.
With that said, capturing essence is essential to all pieces of a wedding from the setting and attire to the decor. And it all begins with the wedding invitations. Basic Invite would like to share with you the importance of the wedding invitation and how the worlds of stationery and photography collide.
