Hi Cindy, excellent refinements. I would suggest going with the new photo where the couple looks directly at the viewer. This image works well with the black border and type. I would move the photo down slightly so his head is not touching the border. I would try looking at the type in all script without the size change just to see if it flows nicely. -R

I think a darker photo will work better with white type. This is just my opinion so take it for what it's worth...with busy photos, I'd suggest beefing up your type by making it larger and/or bolder fonts. And I'd suggest putting all your type in one area. Not many people will have photos that have space on both sides for copy. Just to be sure, try a number of different photos in your design to make sure it will work with as many types of photos as possible.

Not sure which is better - without lighten backdrop (a) or with (b) or (c) darker with white lettering...thank you for your input.

Hi Cindy, I like B with the lightened image. I would consider looking at the border in all one color. Option A would work well with the border and type dropping out to white. -R
