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!

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and recently moved to Oregon with my husband. We just had our first baby and are so in love! I’ve always had an interest in art and have always wanted to pursue a career in a creative field. I took my first photography class in high school, and fell in love. My parents bought me my first camera for graduation and I decided to get my degree in photography. Toward the end of college, I was blessed with an internship with a wedding photographer where I was able to turn my formal education into a practical business. After lots of shadowing, second shooting, and promoting my work, business started coming in and eventually evolved into what it is today!
