Thanks for more helpful advise! So happy that you love the names in red, I do too! I moved the date and place type to the lower corner. I changed the type color to white, I think it works better with this photo image. ( I think black and red could potentially be offered as alternate pathways, if we get that far..) Please let me know how this looks to you. The more eyes on a project the better! Thanks!

Cindy, Appreciate the catch on that extra "M"!!! That's why I say the more eyes on a project the better..... THANKS! I changed the "th" so it is more "proper" too!

hi von! so impressed with all your little touches! love the overall simplicity---really elegant and beautiful. the use of the all uppercase for the date and place is really a good idea...it works really well here.

Von, I like your updates here! I think it gets better with each tweak! I like the placement of the date and location, but I would make a few small changes... remove the "th" from 14 and add a comma after, Simons is misspelled (just one m), and add a comma after island. Maybe even try GA instead of spelling it out? I think the script you chose is lovely, and I like a script paired with a serif font, but I think one with a cleaner line might look really good here. When I used to teach visual communications, I liked to provide this article - https://www.typography.com/email/2010_03/index_tw.htm - to my students as a tool to help with pairing fonts because it has some useful tips. Best of luck!

Love the font choice and red! You could perhaps try the smaller text in black or a different color, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing!

Hey Von, I agree with Jennifer smaller text in black. What do you think of trying the smaller text in lower rt., so it can apply to different photos. I love that red! Hope this helps.
