Keepsakes

Go on, touch me. You know you want to.

Yes, a little tongue in cheek, but that doesn’t change the fact that the above statement is true. My mission statement is to remind people of the intimacy of being human. As humans, we experience the world through touch, so it would be neglectful of me to ignore the tangible aspect of humanness.

I began this year with a new vision of how I could amplify someone’s emotional response to physical products. It started when I was in a Photo Booth on New Year’s Eve with someone I love dearly and was handed a printed photo strip from the operator. This photo strip, which encompassed my affection for another human being, became my bookmark and I now look at it on a near-daily basis.

In the last 3 months, I have invested vast amounts of time and resource into experimenting and refining the tactile experience for all clients of Henry Paul Photography. I have tested print labs, met album suppliers, surveyed clients and friends and purchased a plethora of sample products in order to gain an understanding of what couples want, and more specifically, what they value.

This process will be ongoing and I hope I never “arrive” at the perfect solution, but the journey to finding the best possible tangible experience has been rewarding and impactful. Through a series of inclusions and extras, my clients will walk away from their wedding day not only with stunning images but also with something to literally get their hands on and to hold as a keepsake for years to come.

To discuss what physical products are included in my wedding packages, and which ones are available for purchase, please go to the contact form and tell me about your wedding.

And some prototype stationery, currently being developed with The Distillery in Darlinghurst:
