"This is the physical manifestation of your LEGACY."
Let’s chat about albums, professional prints and wall art. This is ultimately about getting your beautiful memories off the hard drive and into your home. We live in an incredible time when technology is growing leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, however, it means that past technologies are becoming obsolete at unprecedented rates. Floppy disks and even CDs that hold images are becoming harder to access. Not to mention the sheer amount of information, files and apps on our phones and computers that bury meaningful photographs over time.
The need to have photo albums and physical prints is greater than ever. But most importantly, prints and wall art are all about showcasing the things that matter most to you, IN YOUR HOME, and cherishing them every day. Your images are intentionally photographed with printing in mind, so that you can fully utilize your investment and display the images as prints and canvases on your walls and albums on your coffee tables. This is the physical manifestation of your LEGACY.
What is the average investment for albums and prints?
All wedding collections include an album (size depends on the collection purchased). Most couples choose to add between $500-$1500 in album upgrades. Print collections range from $200-$1500 with upgrade and A La Carte options.
How many pictures are on each album spread?
Each spread has an average of 3-5 images, depending on the design. Although occasionally we will showcase a favorite image across 2 pages for maximum impact (Trust me, it is jaw-dropping.)
Who chooses the photos for albums and wall art?
My clients typically select the images for their wall art, although I am happy to make suggestions. If you are purchasing prints through me, I will build you up to 3 custom wall art layouts for you to review before selecting your prints.
For each album order, I will reference any images you may have saved as "Favorites", as well as the best story telling images and put together the initial design for you. Once I complete the initial design, you will then get to preview the design online to make any changes to it that you would like.
Do you offer frames with prints?
While I am happy to give recommendations for where to purchase frames, I do not offer frames with print and wall art orders. There is such a large variety of frame and matte options, both in color, texture, size and style. I feel my couples will be most satisfied with their frames if they make their own selections.
What is your go-to print recommendation?
I absolutely love the look of metallic prints. Essentially, the ink has a metallic luster which boosts the vibrancy radiance of the photo. Unless printing black and white images, this is the surface I always select.
I also prefer to mount my prints on double-weight matboard. It gives the prints a sturdy backing that is great for easel display, but is still light enough to stay in a frame.
How can I maximize my investment?
Albums and prints essential for the home, but they can be utilized in so many other ways as well. I recommend using prints and wall art from the Engagement or Bridal Session to help decorate your wedding venue. Photo albums can also be designed as sign-in books for guests, and they are the perfect way to say "Thank You" to Mom and Dad after the wedding.
