My girlfriend is a fun and spunky gal who's totally into the whole Rockabilly scene.  I recently did a photoshoot for her and her fiance for their engagement pics.  These were the 5 Save the Date card finalists. 

Here they are on some RR tracks



Here's the whole family


She's into roller derby and he's a bowler and they wanted to play off of American Gothic


And in the Nash Rambler.  My personal fav and the one that was eventually chosen for the Save the Date cards.


Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Cool photos! I love them all - they both have a great look and you did a really good job - it can't have been easy to choose.

Thank you very much everyone!  They ended up using the Nash Rambler one on the front and a small black and white one of them balancing on the tracks on the back of the post card.  They were so cute and fun to work with, that makes a BIG difference when taking pics!  Smiley

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

Very cute cards! 

The only thing I suggest is to change the color of the font to something that would stand out a lot better against darker backgrounds (like maybe a red, yellow or light blue).  Another option is to keep the black font color but add a glow or outline around the font (like a white shadow/glow/outline).  Sorry, I'm a photoshop nerd.  :p

Btw, I love the last one!  Fun and cute.  =D
