Funny Christmas Cards
For the past nine years (seven of those with me), Steve McMasters has been doing Funny Christmas Cards. Now that he’s engaged to Alyssa Briggs, it was only natural that incorporated a wedding theme! NSFW Christmas cards.
This is how it usually begins, and this year’s conversation:
Steve (around September-ish): Should we start thinking about the card. We have Alyssa’s mom’s wedding gown from 1987 that we want to use. I have a suit I bought at the Dressing Up Store to use as well.
Lori: That’s awesome. I have just the location in mind for it…there is a house in Nanton that has a basement that is fully 1970s and has never been remodelled (thanks Shauna Strong).
Then we show up and the magic happens. It’s always a mixture of Steve and Alyssa’s vision and personalities and my eye and editing that creates the fun NSFW Christmas Cards that you love. What we bring home for photos is always so much better than what we could have ever planned for. After that, I edit the photos and send them back to Steve and Alyssa. They choose their favourites and I go to work designing their card. It usually takes several back and forths to perfect it. Once we okay the final Christmas card, we send it off to Costco in Okotoks to print several hundred cards. Yup, you read that right. Several hundred. I don’t have several hundred friends, but they do.
This year, our theme was Party Like It’s 1987. Alyssa’s dress is vintage 1987. There are always so many more photos that I’d love to share than what makes the card. It’s always hard culling them down. Steve and Alyssa are getting married at the Coutts Centre near Nanton, and I’m so excited to be their wedding photographer.
