Our Wedding: Polaroid invitations

Polaroid invitations by Joséphine Jameson
Photography by Benj Haisch

The process of our wedding invitations was quite an adventure... Since husband and I both love photography, we wanted to incorporate that into our wedding, from our DIY photobooth Save the Date to our Polaroid wedding invitations. I first saw this idea from a graphic designer online so I hired the company to create our invitations. Three weeks before the projected deadline of sending out our invites, the company completely ceased contact. I sent reminders and questions, but received no responses. Finally, when I still hadn't heard back on the day we were supposed to have sent the invites out, I contacted my online friend Josie. Josie and I have "known" each other for years, and she had recently started her own graphic design company. I emailed her in a panic hoping she would be able to reproduce the vision of our Polaroid wedding invitations. Josie worked super hard on them, cutting out all the photos and Polaroids by hand, and shipped them to me within a week. She even gifted us a handmade personalized family tree, which was so sweet. Josie, I cannot thank you enough!
