Do you remember the red plastic picture viewers, with the round slide? We used to sit on Grama’s couch for hours, viewing slide after slide after slide from the cardboard shoe box filled to overflowing with them.
I hadn’t seen one for more than a decade; had forgotten about them, in fact. And then Image3D contacted me and asked if I wanted to see one of their picture viewers – a nostalgic throwback for vintage lovers, especially ones planning special events. Can’t you picture it? Painted mason jar water glasses. Artfully draped burlap table runners. The beautiful bride smiling into her groom’s eyes. And the guests, clicking through childhood memories, young love, engagement photos. Personally, I would love to create a reel with my favorite images from every photography session I shoot.
Serenity played with our picture viewer for hours, pausing every now and then to happily exclaim, “Daddy! My daddy ‘ee mommy!” I love the nostalgia and longevity of these old fashioned picture viewers, and I thought it fitting to inaugurate our collection of slides with my favorite memories from our wedding. It’s rather satisfying to hear your two year old gasping in delight when she sees a photo of you in your wedding dress.
I love my Image3D photo viewer, and Nick and I plan to create and collect many more reels for our collection as the years go by. Our next purchase will be a collection of our favorite images from Serenity’s birth. ?
If you made a reel, which pictures would you include?
Disclosure: I received an Image3D picture viewer and photo reel free for review consideration; all opinions are 100% my own.
