I was first introduced to js design custom when one of my brides sent me a copy of her invitation. The invite, along with the reply card and save the date, arrived all tucked inside a plain unassuming manila envelope, and I was completely unprepared for what was inside. It was jaw-dropping. Literally. I mean, I had seen beautiful invitations, letterpress embossed invitations gorgeously printed on velvety papers .. but this was so completely different and unique. Unlike anything I had ever seen. And given my obsession with –I mean ‘appreciation of’– beautiful paper products, I was completely blown away by the work inside.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph Julie at her boutique storefront located in the Workshops Building near Denver’s Cherry Creek neighborhood. She wanted some updated product shots, as well as a few headshots for her brand new website that she’ll be launching soon. Here’s my favorite – isn’t she stunning? Hair and makeup were expertly done by the talented Carissa of Carissa Beauty. Julie Sandusky is one of the most talented and creative people I know. Billed as a ‘paper and product architect’, she is able to transform a client’s vision into a complete collection of one-of-a-kind stationary and specialty products. With meticulous attention to detail, Julie is always looking for ways to create unique collections. If you are looking for custom designed elements for your wedding or event – stationary, invitations, table numbers, escort cards, menu cards, thank you notes, maps, welcome baskets, ceremony programs, favors, centerpieces.. or whatever else you can imagine – give Julie a call. And be sure to visit her website for a healthy dose of inspiration.
I’ve featured samples of some of her work on the Colorado wedding photographer blog before and the range of her work is extensive – from a bright modern wedding collection to a vintage romance wedding collection (and everything in between :) Here are a few of her collections that we photographed last week -
