「與其問自己要雕走什麼，更準確直接的想法是，想保留什麼。」In Bespcial's blog, this line touches me. “To ask yourself what needs to be carved out, more precisely, is to ask yourself what you would like to preserve.”
Wedding photo, in a way, is a form of preserving the memory of your wedding day. Often in the process of selecting the favourite wedding photos to be printed, couples would have their different preferences: some may select more of their photos with family, while others may select more close-up shots of their own. Some couples like photos during the ceremony, others may like random candid shots just showing them holding their hands. We all have different stories to tell, every single one of us, because what matters to me may be different than what matters to another person. And so, we want to preserve or protect those that matters.
When an image transforms from a digital file to a tangible object, it enters the "real world" and expands into another opportunity to have its own life. Be it in a photo frame that hangs on your wall, or be it a pocket-size photo which you can put inside your wallet. When you pass through that photo frame and tell your 4 years old niece about your wedding day, or when you take out that photo from your wallet and share your wedding story with your new friend, you create another layer of the story making it "deeper" and more memorable. In another words, with that creation, we preserve the memory simultaneously. That is why I always try to persuade my couples to have their photos printed!
Photo frames are good! But for those other equally beautiful photo prints that you'd like to keep in a safe place and take them out to admire once in a while, we have our new wooden packaging box that can do the work! I’m so thrilled to be collaborating with these amazing humans from Bespecial Wood Carving & Woodcraft Hong Kong, to customise our wedding photo packaging box.
Each of these wooden boxes is specially designed and hand-carved! Every single stroke carved out portion by portion, line by line! Just like in a relationship, we unlearn about our loved one, and preserve the most real to finally create the most beautiful image. I believe that is the journey for every successful relationship.
Leave us your comment of our new creation! And contact me to find out more!
