A photographers job is to help people remember in a visceral way. It's to help them and the people close to them vividly experience a moment of the past. As photographers this is our greater purpose.
This task cannot be accomplished by digital files alone. Yes, of course my clients can always make prints themselves. But, how can I know for sure that they will get something tangible that will reflect the importance of the image?
This is why I include prints and photo books within my services.
The products you are about to see are not only worthy of heirloom images, but also allow me to stay within tight budgets. ;) They are all the products that come with 1-5 hours of service.
I've chosen to publish the provider of these books and prints, Artifact Uprising, along side my pricing guide because I'm not trying to promote these products in a way that would make me some sort of profit. I believe that these beautiful printed items should be in the hands of every customer and they should be seen as more of a gift than something I tack on to my photography rates to justify higher charges.
Honestly these things are really fun to create and I'm excited to make many many more!! These particular books are from my collaboration with Team Mina Hawaii.
The two on top are the 2 8x10 prints that are included in every order, the one below them is the 20 page (40 sides) softcover photo book that comes with wedding of 2-3 hours and the bottom book is the 25 page (50 sides) hardcover photo book that comes for weddings of 4-5 hours.
Sent with each direct order. Clients have a choice of either two 8x10s or four 4x6s.
Definitely the most customizable part of a wedding package. Clients can feel free to take them out for a small discount or order extras for their family! All additional photo books are under $100. :)
The album design process starts a week or two after a clients photos are delivered. Albums can either be horizontally or vertically oriented.
Choice of 4 different color fabrics and either a partial or full dust jacket
