Handmade Photo Box


the blog:

Hand sanded and meticulously finished – these boxes are just beautiful. Can’t wait to give our client this handmade photo box later tonight along with their double album proof books. The extra specialness is that their wedding was in Bend and these boxes are handmade in Oregon, such a sweet coincidence.

A multi day destination wedding has a lot of photos needless to say. So when I made my 100 selects for my favorites to be included in this box, it wasn’t very easy to narrow down. I love each and every one of them for different reasons. Can’t share any people photos but we certainly had fun walking around Bend taking some fun travelogue type photos to include in the gallery.

When we photograph a wedding or an event it is very important to us to tell the whole story, the who, what, where, when and how.

A wedding day primarily features the couple but it is also about everyone else and everything else. The establishing shots mixed in with the storytelling, emotional, candid and expected photos that round out a wedding day. We want anyone who looks at the wedding slideshow, flips through the proof book or looks at a wedding album to feel like they were there. And we especially want the couple to be brought back to those moments on that very special day no matter how many years have passed.

This box is a keepsake – something to hand down to the next generation – a family heirloom – that we were fortunate enough to contribute to.
