We wanted to say congrats to our friend and amazing product photographer Edyta Szyszlo who just launched Tomfoolery SF with her partner Jared this week.

We’ve had the chance to experience their ultra stylish open-air photo booth several times already and we’re big fans of the fun backdrops and clever props.

Check out their playful website and be sure to book them for any social events you have big or small!
Congrats Edyta & Jared and best of luck with your exciting new venture!

One of our favorite photographers Edyta Szyszlo has lent us a couple of her best bridal portraits to show off in our holiday photo card collection (check out these pretty new cards with Rikki Ward Photography). As newlyweds choosing a holiday card that is festive but matches your wedding portrait is key. It was so much fun pairing these couple photos with the best of our holiday cards. A favorite from last year (above) was Good Cheer in the bold fuchsia color palette. It works perfectly with the bright San Francisco backdrop!

This year we wanted to include more large scale photo designs, so this pretty Holiday Calligraphy card is perfect for showing off your pearly whites. Plus, the colors are customizable! Thanks Edyta for sharing your beautiful photography, and for newlyweds – order early and save 20%! Just use the code EARLYHOLIDAY at checkout!

Last week we helped celebrate the 30th birthday of our favorite photographer Edyta Szyszlo! When she came to us months ago with the idea for her party invitations, she had us at “Physical.” The wording, all created by the birthday girl herself, was a mashup of lyrics throughout three awesome decades. Her duplex paper fluorescent white and fuchsia letterpress printed beauties were also edged in a tie-dye style and hand painted with bold strips of colorful acrylic. They sure set the tone for a good time ahead.

The party took place at Workshop in San Francisco. Workshop is an amazing studio space dedicated to DIY projects for the public, and they offer classes from printmaking to canning. Check out their class schedule here.

This may be hard to believe, but Edyta handmade all her crepe paper decorations and party hats. How did she have the time? Nobody knows, but this girl can do it all.

The cake pop display was two-tiered and matched her decor. Scrumptious and stylish!

As the night went on, hungry guests got to snack on popcorn in cute personal sized grab-bags.

And it wouldn’t be Edyta’s party without the amazing new Tomfoolery Photobooth. This bold and colorful backdrop and open-air photobooth made for hilarious mementos from the night.

Where did she get those awesome photobooth props you ask? Hello!Lucky of course! And we’ve reduced the price so now you can get them for a steal. The Word Bubbles (set of 2) are $25 and Mustaches (set of 4) are only $35!

Happy happy birthday Edyta! Thanks again for hosting such a fabulous party. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! Xo, the H!L team.

Did you see this charming boho wedding shoot on Green Wedding Shoes? It was styled by Karin Kamb of Clever Girl Consulting and photographed by none other than Edyta Szyszlo. The sultry green backdrop of the Mendocino Farmhouse paired with the neutral organic elements of the clothing and decor made for a comfortable and romantic setting. The models are local folk singers, too, which made their connection seem so perfect.

Eunice designed a brand new wedding suite for the shoot, appropriately titled Bluegrass. It’s still in the works but will be available on our website soon!

To see more photos from the shoot head over to Green Wedding Shoes!

This post has been long overdue and we couldn’t be more proud to share our love and gratitude for Edyta Szyszlo Photography. You’ve seen her name mentioned in posts before but today we’re revealing her true art. Edyta started collaborating with us last summer before the release of our guest designer holiday collection. From the moment she stepped foot in our studio we were certain we couldn’t lose her. Her fun-loving personality makes work seem like play and if you’re the one in front of the lens – there’s nothing to fear – Edyta will make you shine!

Some of our particular favorites are Edyta’s engagement photo sessions. She’s pursued the most eclectic San Francisco neighborhood backdrops and traveled far-and-wide for the perfect pictures.

You may recognize these images from a Michelle and Jacob’s Real Wedding last year. Edyta’s photo made the cover of their Just Married card and it sparked a whole new trend here at Hello!Lucky. Her commercial photography is just as outstanding as her wedding images, and you can tell we love it because our website is basically an Edyta shrine!

Glitter, stripes and a whole blend of colors. This is the reason we love Edyta! Many many thanks to our friend for making our products look amazing and for always bringing a smile to our faces! Visit Edyta Szyszlo Photography to book your next session today!


When Edyta recommended Sarah at Modern Kids Photography for holiday family photos, we knew she’d be amazing (Edyta’s behind all of Hello!Lucky’s editorial product photos). The clincher? Sarah’s a former nanny with a natural warmth and openness. She miraculously put Sabrina’s twin toddlers at ease the moment she set foot in the door!


We shot in and around Sabrina’s house and neighborhood…


In the back yard…


At home…



And walking around the neighborhood…with their colorful walls and doors, the neighborhood provided a surprising variety of backdrops.

Tips for a successful photo shoot:

- Schedule it for when the kids will be well-fed and well-rested.

- Shoot at home, around the neighborhood, or at a familiar park.

- Pick comfortable clothes and pay attention to color palette. Outfits don’t need to match but it helps to pick colors and patterns in the same family (we chose a variety of stripes in preppy colors and earth tones).

- If you’re using your photos in holiday photo cards or photo birth announcements, have a few card designs in mind and keep their color palette and photo orientation (portrait vs. landscape).

Sabrina used her photos in the accordion-style Four Seasons New Year’s Card by Susy Jack* – check out the results here!


Drumroll, please…We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-spankin’-new website!  We’ve been laboring over this baby for months and months and are sooo excited that it’s finally (finally!) here!


The new site includes a fab new collection of custom holiday photo cards: This year we got together 16 of our favorite illustrators/designers—the likes of Susy*Jack, Hammerpress, Tom Frost (featured above), Lab Partners and more—and collaborated on a whole collection of fun and unique holiday cards.  We can’t wait for you to see them!


Additionally, the new site features beautiful photography by Edyta Szyszlo…we had so much fun styling these shots!


We also have a gorgeous new wedding invitation collection with Anne Smith (another illustrator we’ve admired/been deeply envious of for years and years)…


And we’re thrilled to introduce our brand-new customization tool, which is going to make it a breeze to customize cards.  It’s super cool, if we do say so ourselves, and allows you to change colors, choose fonts and drop in photos on the fly. It makes ordering fun and easy and gives you a lot of control over the final result.

You can also send your order straight to print (that’s how much control you have over design, people!) to cut down on the turnaround time.  Normally, it can take 1-2 business days (or weeks, for those of you prone to dilly-dallying!) to approve a manually-created proof, so this is an exciting new feature.  Of course, you still can have our designers put their finishing touches on your design or incorporate any special requests, but how awesome is that??


That being said, please bear with us as we get settled into our new digs (there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way!). Some products may be temporarily unavailable online while we get our shop in order, but we promise they’ll be back soon!  If you have any questions or need help with a product that is currently not available on our site, don’t hesitate to drop us a line or give us a ring! We’d love to hear from you! US: or 415.355.0008  UK: or 020 7378 9740
