Many of you know we love a photographic challenge and Emma and David are huge Bruce Springsteen fans who wanted to create a wedding invite which reflected this. One afternoon we got together to have a little fun in the studio with a plan to create a shot inspired by the album cover of Born to Run, for their Springsteen inspired wedding invitations.
Walk don’t run
Not wanting to pose them straight off, we brought a box of props and had a little fun, allowing them to get comfortable with the camera first. There is a great book of unseen photos from the original Born to Run photoshoot by Eric Meola, so we were inspired by this too – to show more of the shoot rather than just the finished image. After some games with props which included an adorable ‘what do you love each about each other’ question, we encouraged Emma and David to pick up the instruments and mess around for a bit, before settling them in to the iconic pose between Springsteen and saxophonist Clarence Clemons – Emma clearly had the rock edge in those fab leather look trousers so naturally she was Bruce!
We think this is a fab collection of images to celebrate their engagement but we were also thrilled to see the final invite which Emma sent through.
“We’ve had so many amazing compliments about them- so a big thank you!!! We made the pictures up into a CD sleeve… then inserted all the [wedding] info inside…”
And the finished product…How cool do these invites look?
