Wedding photos are no longer being delivered the way they once were. Most photographers offer a disc of images or an online gallery, myself included. You need that digital to be able to share photos with friends and family across the country. But if everything is digital, you can sometimes lose how special it is to actually FEEL your wedding photos for the first time. Staring mindlessly at a computer screen, scrolling down as fast as possible to see every new photo right away – that beautiful experience is lost.
I realized this was happening for some couples and I wanted to continue creating an experience for my clients once the wedding was over. I want my couples to really FEEL what it’s like to receive their wedding photos for the first time, to actually have something tangible. I want them to be able to touch their photos, feel the texture of the paper, and let their fingers brush lightly against the image as they remember how perfect their day was. I want them to have more than just a gallery of images – I want them to have a family heirloom to pass down for generations, a keepsake they can display proudly and look at whenever they want to take a walk down memory lane.
I’m so thrilled to introduce a new piece that I offer for weddings. I present to you the Heirloom Box.
These lovely heirlooms are available in three beautiful stains (my favorite is the Hand Rubbed Oil Walnut pictured above.) These stunning, uniquely-made boxes come with beautiful fine-art prints from your wedding. Choose your favorite images to best tell the story of the day!
The lids can be engraved with anything you want, usually your names or your wedding date.
When you remove the lid you’ll find your images nestled safely inside.
The Heirloom Box also includes three nostalgia vials, perfect for adding other details from your day in the box. The sky’s the limit with what you’d like to use them for; some ideas include the dirt from the ground you were married on, a piece of your wedding dress, or dried flowers from your bouquet.
Plus there is plenty of room to continue to add more photos or other pieces from your wedding.
This is more than just a box, it’s a living memento that will constantly grow and change with you throughout the years.
The perfect family heirloom to pass down for generations.
