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.
