Following my workshop with Lisa O’Dwyer, these are some of the first product images that I took myself. These were taken on a SLR camera, using 35mm film. Yes – you read that right. Film. So this is my first attempt, I hope to build on this and get better with practice.
The above photos are of a custom design, autumn themed gold pocketfold invite for Tom & Emer last year. Tom & Emer were getting married in beautiful Graiguenamagh, Co. Kilkenny. They were eager to reflect the autumn woodland in the palette and to create a fun contemporary owl motif.
Emer loved the freehand illustration as soon as she clapped eyes on it. This invite was great fun to work on; often couples will keep their distance from some of the wilder ideas that they really like, because they are afraid of negative feedback from invitees. I have great admiration for Tom and Emer in standing by their original convictions. The result speaks for itself.
