Why do physical prints and products matter?

These physical items – whether wall art or album – are heirlooms, and I don’t just mean for children that you may or may not choose to pass them down to.

The photo albums in my grandmother’s house were such a huge part of my childhood: my siblings and I loved rifling through the books, no matter how many times we’d seen the images.

These pieces of art, these albums, are something to enjoy with loved ones, to make memories while looking through memories. To enjoy the good times when you’re feeling down and to relive amazing moments, especially ones that involve people who’ve passed.

These are important people, important moments, and they deserve a place of attention!

After the wedding, the photos are what stick around to help bring you back to the joy and celebration, to capture moments that you might have missed or that slipped by while you were dancing your ass off.

To catch all of the details, the special looks between you and your spouse or the sing-a-long moments with your best friends.Family portraits, photos, and wedding albums all only ever increase in value.

Can you imagine a relative going through your wedding album reverently in 60 years?

I can, because that was me every single time I visited my grandparents! I LOVED looking through those photos. {Mauve weddings in the 80’s were such a special choice; I love it.} So they’re not only for you, they’re also for the people you love to be able to look through, as well.

As I type this, out of the corner of my eye I can see the wall of friends and family I created for my office, which never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Especially after losing a family member a few years back, it’s incredibly important to me that I have these photos to look at and delight in and put in a place of import on my walls.


High-quality printing and keeping it easy

I choose my labs extremely specifically when it comes to the products I offer.

The albums and wall art that I offer my couples come exclusively from high-end professional labs that only work with professional photographers, ensuring the highest level of quality. The albums are inspected after each phase of the production process, are warrantied for life, and any manufacturer’s defects are replaced or repaired at no extra cost. I’ve personally walked through issues with these companies and am completely confident in their amazing customer service and their dedication to producing amazing work. There’s no falling apart or color fading with these products.

Pledge to Sustainability

One of the most important aspects of how I pick a company is this!

I work with companies that have a pledge to sustainability, which not only includes their waste practices and helping save the planet and being kind to the environment, but also their dedication to fair wages, ethical working conditions, and equal opportunities for their employees and partners.

I handle everything for my couples

There’s no narrowing down or designing that they need to do.

I build the story of their day with their favorites in mind and then go over the design proof with them, making adjustments as needed until they’re thrilled with how the story looks!

All of the wall art I offer comes ready to hang on the wall, just put up a few push-pins or nails. My goal is for this whole process to be as simple and fun as possible for you. Let’s get this stuff in your house!
