living with art: modern picture box

Wall Display Picture BoxToday's "living with art" winning share comes from Denise Chastain of Modern Wedding Photography.  She says, "This image is a 20x30 print mounted on masonite, displayed in a 26.5x36 recessed shadow box that is built into the wall. The are two small tungsten lights built in above as well. We had our good friend, who is an amazing carpenter, custom make this for us. We have a few mounted prints around so we can rotate them, and they just lean on the wall within the picture box.  This is in the foyer of our studio, and it's the first thing clients see as they enter, next to two O'Brien Schridde framed prints. We did have to reconfigure a structural beam to make it work, but anything in the name of art!" We love this creative display, and that it can easily be updated to be fresh and new!

Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?

Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.

There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.
