Put Your Wedding Photos to Work

Wedding and engagement photos are so important because they offer rare professional shots with your favorite people looking their best. Think about it — when you look at these photos on display at any given friend or family member’s house, you’ll often find great wedding shots throughout the years. We have some incredibly thoughtful ways you can use those mom-and-bride wedding shots, or even your engagement pics, to create a gift for the ultimate gifter.

What is a better ode to family and tradition than food? Let Mom know she’s a tastemaker. Preserve family recipes in a beautiful, professional book.

Use photos of the actual dishes if you like, and pair each contribution from loved ones with a mix of wedding snaps and family photos. Consider using your favorite wedding shot with mom to grace the cover of your own Whimsical Recipes by Slightly Stationery Photo Book.
