Christina Harrison is a Detroit-based photographer crafting timeless wedding and brand imagery in Michigan and beyond. Her work has been featured in some of the world’s top wedding publications such as 100 Layer Cake & Magnolia Rouge, but more importantly, in the homes of her delighted couples.
Laura is the owner & designer behind Paper & Honey®, a custom stationery & letterpress studio near Detroit, Michigan. It’s easy to tell she’s a witty ray of creative sunshine, but it wasn’t until we sat down at Starbucks to dig into her brand that I noticed something else glimmering nearby: her heart for her couples’ stories. For weaving its unique elements into paper goods that aren’t just pretty, but personal. Starting with a fresh canvas she tunes into what’s special, translates it into a delicious design, and creates an initial touchpoint for their celebration that doubles as a frame-worthy heirloom.
We wanted her brand shoot to showcase that onliness factor, so Laura took the opportunity to create two suites based on two wild & beautiful stories that lived in her head. One inspired by a dark forest, the other a deep ocean. We captured her entire process – from moodboarding to production in her Brighton home studio (with her husband Max & their beloved antique letterpress) to completion. Scroll down to see the results, and to hear how her brand session transformed her business!
“Investing in brand photography will remind you of why you’re doing all of this in the first place. Why you started your company. The ideas that keep you up at night. The people you’d love to serve. The work you long to bring to life. Seeing your brand through someone else’s eye — and seeing YOU, by extension — is marvelous. Receiving my bespoke gallery felt like a shot of adrenaline. Moving forward into 2020, these images make me feel refreshed, empowered, and CAPABLE. What a gift.”
