Your first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs. is so special that you should cherish those memories forever with a gorgeous photoshoot! JoPhoto captured the sweetest moments between one beautiful newlywed couple, and it couldn’t be more magical. Get inspired with a few DIY ideas you can create together to make your first holidays memorable!
The Perfect Spot
Picking the right place for shoot is the first important step. An outdoor venue with a pretty backdrop, like a Christmas tree farm, is perfect for a holiday themed photoshoot. Get shots of you two walking through trees and wear something cozy and bright! Wouldn’t this photo make a wonderful Christmas card?
A few holiday touches can make your shoot feel much more merry! Wrap a few boxes in kraft paper and tie burlap and plaid ribbon into bows for a few festive presents.
Cookies and milk for Santa add a little cheer to the setup. The two of you can sneak a few bites for a few cute photos!
Bring the Indoors Out
Want some extra amazing photographs? Use a faux mantle and living room set to bring the warmth of Christmas to the rustic beauty of the outdoors. Keep it rustic and chic with cedar and burlap details!
For the holidays, you and your partner can make handmade gifts together for friends and family! This cupboard is filled with lots of great DIY ideas for a Christmas morning breakfast including sugar and spice mix, pancake mix, hot chocolate mini mason jar mugs, maple syrup, and a sleigh full of jams and jellies by Custom Love Gifts.
DIY Tip: Fill mason jar mugs with cocoa mix, cover the top with festive fabric, and tie twine and a tag around each one for a nice and simple gift!
Another great gift idea? Layer cake and icing in glass mason jars!
A Toast to the Mr. and Mrs.
Ask your photographer to snap a shot of you two toasting with hot cocoa. It’ll be a fabulous photo op to show off that ring!
