“Hubby & Holly Crown” Couples Pictures

I know it’s January but I love our Christmas pictures so much I just had to share them with you anyway! My husband and I have been married for a year and a half and we hadn’t had professional pictures taken since our wedding so I was itching to do our first family pictures together! They turned out perfectly “us” with him being his sporty, casual self and me rocking all things frilly and feminine. I couldn’t be happier to hang these on our wall.

My sweet hubby wore his favorite Home Alone Inspired sweatshirt (his favorite childhood movie) and I wore my outfit from my last post
“Tulle and Tinsel“. We shot these near my house in Lehi, Utah. I made this holly crown out of a piece of garland from a craft store and found the plastic mistletoe in my parent’s Christmas decor stash… instant Christmas photo props! After we got these gorgeous pictures back from from Diana Putnam Photography I designed our Christmas cards myself! (Scroll down to the very bottom of the post to see it.)

And below is our Christmas cards that I designed myself and had printed by Pro Digital Photos in Pleasant Grove, UT. Their staff was super helpful, printed them same-day (THANK YOU!) and they turned out absolutely beautifully! Then I bought these kraft envelopes at my favorite Hobby Lobby and voila! Christmas Cards done in a weekend! (DEFINITELY broke a sweat though *wink*)
