Houston Wedding Photographer | Creating an Heirloom
I recently put together a photo shoot of a bride and groom and being in need of jewelry for my shoot in Houston I reached out to Marco at Eklectic Jewelry Studio. I noticed his designs were so unique, when I met with him to select some pieces for my wedding photo shoot I got to learn so much about his family's history and what they do! Marco is a 3rd generation jeweler and moved his family to Houston from Mexico. He and his family only create one of a kind unique jewelry. That means no one will ever have the same piece of jewelry as you- how cool is that!?
He explained to how during a consultation with a client, lets say a future groom looking to design a unique engagement rind for his fiance, he gets to know them and incorporates their personalities into the jewelry. He would ask about their relationship, the bride's personality, her taste, what is important to her, and incorporate all of this into a 100% unique engagement ring.
This made me think of my great grandmother's wedding ring, that I wear almost daily! Its so unique, I've never seen another ring like it, made of white sapphires and 14k gold. I realized what Marco is doing is creating family heirlooms. Unique pieces of art that will be passed down for generations- just like my imagery and wedding albums I create for my Houston wedding couples.
Wouldn't you want your images and your jewelry to be representative of you? Wouldn't you want it to be so unique and memorable that it gets passed down through your family for generations? What kind of price would you put on a generational heirloom like that?
When planning your wedding day- don't forget about the most important pieces, the ONLY pieces that will be left over and passed down after the day. Your jewelry and your images. These are what will become family heirlooms, so don't take the decision lightly and if you have to tighten the budget in certain areas for your wedding day- choose areas that will live for that day only, and not for generations. (self-serving statement I know!).
