Okay.  So I'm spring cleaning in December.  That's the life of a wedding photographer.  I have all this time on my hands now.  While organizing I keep coming across awesome old postcards and stamps.  These postcards I picked up at a gallery years back.  I love the gold foil!  I only wish I knew who made them..

Joseph and I shot some adorable custom invitations for Paper & Poste earlier this year.  I have such a fun time selecting which vintage stamps to pair up with each suite. 

P.S. Joseph is the ribbon master!
