Giclèe plus Change | Wedding Albums

Oct

An album company recently operating in the U.S. reached out to SJP. They wanted to send a few samples to see what I thought. They printed a few photos of me and the boys along with a mini swatch book at no charge. I was baffled by their confidence as I don’t even think I paid shipping…it took so long to get here….but Clynn and I got chills when we unwrapped the paper. The ink was clearly unlike anything we’d seen. We held up our print samples from other companies we had come to love and they paled in comparison. This company is truly archival. Prints tested through 100 years for sustainability in color and contrast. I haven’t even seen the prices yet. I know they are high, but SJP is sold. We are wedding photographers. We create heirloom work. What if I can hand it to you, knowing with proper care, it will look the same in 100 years?
 
Up until now, I have been all about just getting prints into your hands. Trying to convince my digital generation that a photo on a screen will NEVER compare to a photo in your hand. I’ve pushed that as long as I can at the lowest price points possible in hopes that you will see what I see and feel what my family has felt. I have plead my piece and after thousands invested in education and countless late nights of study, I am ready to be better represented. I want to be and provide the best for my couples. It is a luxury, but a luxury worth striving for. It’s Family history. A legacy of love unique to each couple and their posterity. I hope that preserving the history of your family for those who come after you is so important. More important than a new pair of Buckle Jeans, the latest iPhone, or that Naked eye-shadow palette you’ve been eyeing. Your wedding album is more than a photo book. It is your most precious heirloom.
 
Beginning with 2019 brides, we will officially be vendors of Archival quality print products. I will be sure to send out the option to my remaining wedding albums of 2018 because not giving the option would be a disservice. I will also be discontinuing canvas for Giclée Prints. Giclèe is a print process used in Museums for art reproductions. Canvas may return in 2020. Until then, I promise the trade off will be SO worth it. If you’re curious, I invite you to come see. Schedule a meeting to come to my office. See the difference for yourself. You’ll be sold in seconds.
I literally can not wait to place my sample album order with them. It will be my #1 project when I’m finished editing this wedding season. My couples who booked packages this year who were promised a keepsake box with prints?! They will be Giclèe quality! I can’t even bring myself to place an order for anything else and I can’t wait for you to see the difference yourself.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
