Why you get prints
Many people these days want to just get the files from their wedding. I can understand why you might want to do this however I have heard so many people say that they never do anything with their files. Generally after the wedding the business of life gets in the way and often the images remain on a disk. only viewed occasionally with promises of, “I must get my images printed and make an album”. I know because that has happened to me.
I am passionate about creating images, documents and artworks that last a long time. Heirlooms. I also want you to easily be able to enjoy your images right from the start. At the moment photographic prints are the most archival and ecological form of sharing, displaying and preserving your history. When handled with care these prints will last 75-100 years and you only need your eyes, hands and heart to enjoy and share them. Computers, DVD’s or USB sticks require power and do not yet have the same kind of longevity. We all know how quickly technology is changing. Who knows what image formats or types of storage devices will be around in 5 years let alone 50 years. This is why my base coverage comes with professionally printed prints rather than high resolution files. I include low resolution files as I do appreciate all the different ways of sharing your images.
The other reason for including prints is I want you to experience the quality of professionally printed images. If I just gave you the files I have no control over where you select to print and I cannot guarantee the quality of the prints. No printer is the same. I use a professional lab for all of my printing.
Creating an Heirloom to be enjoyed for generations
I create classic hand bound section sewn books that are a perfect way to preserve and share your story for many years to come. They include the words of your ceremony weaved throughout the book, are printed with pigment inks on fine art paper and presented in a beautiful linen covered clam-shell box. Each book design is bespoke and there is a range of leather and linen cover materials to choose from. Please contact me to see samples of my books.
I also have a range of simplified photo books, parent books, and framed prints. All are professionally printed and crafted. And yes I will sell you your high resolution files.
All of these are additional to the base coverage fee. They can be purchased before your wedding (at a reduced cost) or any time after your wedding. A full price list is available on request.
