Why should I invest in products?

A lot of people wonder why they should buy products. By products I mean, canvases, prints or an album. You may think, “I am already spending a lot of money on photography, why should I spend even more?” I think the answer is actually quite simple. Your wedding images were never meant to stay on your computer screen! While it is nice in the digital age to be able to share images on facebook, twitter and on blogs, that is not all your wedding images were intended to do! Since this is one of the most important days of your life, I believe that you need something tangible! Having prints, a canvas or an album is something that you can see, touch and feel! While it is nice to show off your wedding images on facebook, its even nicer to hand your house guests your wedding album and watch as they flip through it!

I love being able to provide my clients with their wedding images on a flash drive, but you don’t want to have to dig around in the office every time you want to show them off! To be completely honest with you, when I got married I thought it was super important to have a DVD with all of our images on it, and while I am so glad that we did get that, we didn’t get an album. Now, I am not even sure where our DVD is, but if we had had gotten an album, I promise you that it would be on our coffee table and I would see it every day! I don’t open up my folder of wedding images and sort through it every day, but I see a picture of our wedding on my wall every day. To me that is way more special.

I don’t think they question we should be asking is, “Why should I invest?” but rather, “Why not?” After spending thousands of dollars on wedding images, you should be able to do something with those images! You need a way to showcase them, display them and show them off! Why would you spend thousands of dollars to just let your flash drive sit around and get dusty?

Cue product images… this is your chance to see why an album and canvas are so great! Check out a few images below to see the magic!

This sample album is from Calvin + Tiffany’s wedding this past October! 

LOVE the imprinting with their names and wedding date!

I can’t show you all of the spreads, but here are a few of my favorites!
They had so many great details!

Here is a canvas of us from our day after session!!! I love it! I see this everyday and its awesome!

Products: Albums!

This post is LONG overdue! When I first started out with my business, I offered a mid-level album. While it was a good company, and super simple to order from (that is why I liked them!) it wasn’t the quality or really the style that I liked. There were only a couple of cover options, and you couldn’t add a picture or any type of lettering! That was something that I really wanted to have! So I decided to switch to Leather Craftsman, and let me tell you, I LOVE them! Their albums are exactly what I was looking for! They are beautiful, there are a ton of options, and Leather Craftsman has amazing customer service! After switching companies though, I didn’t have any sample albums to show clients! I grew tired of having to explain how great Leather Craftsman was without having something to show! So, without further to do… here is a new sample album from Ciara + Joseph’s wedding! I am loving it so much, I think I am going to order a few more because they are so great!!!

They are lots of good reasons to order an album, but let me just share a few! I don’t believe that your wedding images should just stay on your computer screen! You need to do something tangible with them! And let me tell you, this is one of the best ways to show them off! You can have this on your coffee table, and every time a guest arrives, you can let them look through it! Its wonderful to have something beautiful and high quality that will last a long time! I think everyone should order an album, but of course I am a little biased! You can choose from about 30 different covers and select any picture you want to be in the middle! You can also have anything branded below! I love to put the name of the couple! 

Canvases | Products

I LOVE canvases! I honestly think that pictures should never hide behind a computer screen and sit on your hard drive for forever. I think they need to be SHOWN OFF! Canvases are one of the best ways to do that! I realize that I never blog about products, so I wanted to show off a recent canvas I ordered! I get all my canvases from Simply Canvas. They have amazing customer service and offer super high quality products! Check out a canvas from Ciara + Joseph’s engagement session!
