Here you will find some of the celebrations, special occasions, and projects we have been honored to document over the past eleven years.
I first learned of Empress Stationery through Instagram. Jessica’s images in her Instagram feed are simply a divine showcase of her talent with custom monograms and letterpress invitations as well as her styling capabilities. I love that she is now sharing her knowledge of styling with others in intimate one – on -one classes. It was an honor to capture her first class with Becky from Becky’s Brides.
One of the take aways I learned from her was that as a photographer we often shoot the invitation suite with shoes, rings, or flowers on top of beautiful letterpress stationary. While that creates a beautiful image, she isn’t able to use it as easily as other wedding vendors. Take a second and shoot the invitation suite without covering your designers beautiful work.
While I carry a small kit for styling on a wedding day, it was like being a kid in a candy store getting to look through all the little dishes, letter seals, and stamps that Jessica had in her studio. Here are a few things I would suggest carrying in your kit.
Not sure what to do with all the pretty items once you get your kit together? I highly recommend reaching out to Jessica to book your own styling session.
