Long before I knew any of the A Bryan Photo crew, I read their Found Frames post and was blown away by the concept. As an interior designer and photography enthusiast, this venture is the combination of my favorite crafts.
The idea behind Found Frames is a simple one: find interesting frames, fill them with art, and enjoy them daily in a space. When working with Sally (a former bride and delightful new friend!) on her living room wall, we dialogued about her home’s style and potential content for her frames. We developed a concept that reached beyond simply an ode to her wedding and became a true snapshot of life with her husband, Steven.
In addition to imagery of their wedding, we included photographs of trips the two had taken. Excitedly, I began to scour Etsy for art and decided to include images from Sally and Steven’s parents’ weddings, one of Bryan’s fine art shots from New York, a gold foil Southern saying and a pair of Rifle Paper Company’s trademark cards. The content was then placed in frames found from various estate sales and antique stores.
The final result is a wall full of vibrant memories, fresh art and family heritage. We couldn’t be more excited to share this project, and we love the way it illustrates our passion for preservation.
When shooting a reception on Super 8, I like to get as close to the action as possible. When I’m right in the middle of the dance floor, I get great interaction with the guests as they love being caught on camera. I feel the slightly sped-up and surreal nature of Super 8 also allows for a more fun way to relive the footage, especially when paired with an upbeat song.
Some of the best and most hilarious dancing I have ever seen was at Paige & Stodd’s wedding at Blackberry Farm, and I’m glad I was there to capture it. Enjoy six minutes of pure joy!
Wedding photography is the preservation of memories of a life that has been built and shaped by those closest to the couple. This is why the documentation of families deserve great respect and attention on the wedding day. And this is also why the presentation of the photographs require great care. Providing the parents of our couples with ways to cherish and relive the day over and over again is extremely important to us.
We love how Sally’s mom chose to preserve her daughter’s wedding weekend; with a wedding album, a rehearsal dinner album and box of Fine Art prints.
**UPDATE: The Fall position has been filled.
We are pleased to announce again the A Bryan Photo Internships for this fall & early next year!
The program allows us to teach the intricacies of our craft, while imparting the principles needed to run a successful small business. We think you will enjoy working with your hands while learning the analog medium.
We practice a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) which promotes a more relaxing, enjoyable, and strangely more productive atmosphere. You won’t be asked to fill a certain amount of hours or perform mindless tasks. Your role will be integral to our daily workflow and will help us in the presentation and styling of our imagery.
The A Bryan Photo Internship has proven to be mutually beneficial for both parties and we are honored to consider you for the position.
