Basic Invite Wedding Invitations

I photographed some sample wedding invitations from Basic Invite and absolutely loved them!  I enjoy helping my brides with wedding planning so here is what makes them unique 🙂

  • Custom Samples – Order a printed sample of your actual invitation and see exactly how it will print (before ever having to place your final order).
  • Over 200 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set.  You can find everything from cute save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, table place cards, and even matching thank you cards!
  • Free Address Collection Service – Request your addresses with  3 simple steps.  Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.

I would love to hear your thoughts on which one is your favorite!  You can follow Basic Invite on all social media platforms @BasicInvite and you can follow me on IG @debmophoto

Happy Friday! xo


Sherlin and Brendan were married at their church in Lancaster in front of their closest family and friends.  You could just tell everyone invited cared for them dearly!  They also opted to see each other in this beautiful setting before their ceremony.  I am so glad we were able to document their first look amongst these billowing trees and poppies!  Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Patz!

Chanel’s 3rd Birthday: A Fancy Nancy Tea Party

Chanel’s 3rd Birthday: A Fancy Nancy Tea Party

Chanel had a blast at her Fancy Nancy Themed Birthday Party!  It was so cute seeing Chanel and her friends use real teacups and sip tea…well lemonade 🙂

Family and friends could also make their own poodle, get a manicure, have their makeup done, play dress-up and take a photo with Fancy Nancy and have it printed in a cute photo folio.

Oh and did you see the dessert bar?!  YUM!  Happy Birthday CHANEL!!!

Event Planning: The Perfect Party



Vavé Studios said hello to fall with a block party and sidewalk sale last week!  My friends Patrice & Jessica own an adorable flower shop in South Pasadena and create custom floral arrangements for weddings and events.  I’m lucky to have worked alongside them at weddings because their bouquets and arches are a photographer’s dream.

I was excited when they asked me to photograph their event and promote my holiday mini sessions.  Appetizers and custom built tables were provided by His & Hers| Rentals & Catering.  Their food is not only delicious, but stunning to look at.  I call it food art 🙂

Everyone that stopped by received a gift bag with a mini pumpkin and succulent.  Bubbly and Bites were kindly hosted by the Kutzer Company.  It was such a treat to shop with a glass of champagne in hand and listen to records play in the background.  I also bought some gorgeous earrings by the talented jewelry designer Marisa Bosquez.

Bravo to the ladies of Vavé including Angela, Marisa & Kathryn for hosting such a fabulous event!

We’d love for you to follow us on Instagram!
