Our updated take on traditional silhouettes makes for a fun, romantic save-the-date. Pose with your fiancé a few feet in front of a large wall, holding a banner made from our clip art template. Shine a bright light on yourselves -- a desk lamp or car headlights work well, says staff photographer Bryan Gardner. Have a friend stand behind or to the side of the light and snap a pic of the shadows you’ve created. (Experiment to find the best position for a sharp image.) Then, hand it off to your stationer, or design and print it at home.
