From the reject pile

We just sent out the invitations for our upcoming wedding; before those, we sent out Save-The-Dates, so I figured now would be a good time to share some images that we decided against using.

For our Save-The-Dates, we ended up going with a photobooth-y theme. For reference, here's what we sent out (click to view the full thing):

Our actual Save-The-Date

Kristin summed it up as, “I like the story this tells: I eat all your ice cream but  you still give me flowers.” That's love, kids.

To make these pictures, I set up a lighting rig and a tripod, we both had some wine, and we grabbed props as appropriate.

We needed four pictures; we took 123. Here are some of the many that didn't make the cut.

(I should emphasize that wine was involved.)

I wouldn't blame her for leaving, either

Am I doing it wrong?
