Your photos will likely be delivered on an online gallery (hello it’s 2022) and don’t forget to download them! We recommend downloading them 3 times and storing in a few locations. You never know what can happen with technology and it’s best practice to be able to save those babies. Save on your computer, a USB that you store in a fire proof location, another external hard drive and another cloud option is a good choice.
2. Plan – map out what you’re going to do
Go through your photos and start selecting some favorites. Start thinking about walls or spaces you want to fill with photos. Think of what photos you want to showcase and then what product would look best there with your decor. Is there anyone you want to get a gift for? Someones birthday coming up or a gift for the parents? These make perfect presents.
3. Display them around your home
Display a coffee table album or an album on the self, a framed print or a canvas. Think outside the box and use a mix of portraits and detail photos if any. A landscape canvas or framed print of your wedding day will make an amazing piece of art. With the highest quality materials, these should last 100+ years.
4. Send thank you cards or photo gifts
Your wedding photos make the perfect thank you card stationary. Before you run off to Walmart to print your photos, think about what space it’s going in and how important you want the quality of photos. For heirloom gifts that you want to last decades, going through a professional photographer with the highest quality of professional material is your best best. If you’re just needing something quick and not worried about quality, I recommend mpix or artifact uprising. *Note that different photo labs will give various colors and quality.
5. Design an album
A curated album is such a fun way to display your photos. There’s something so nostalgic about flipping through a wedding album with your favorite photos from your day. It makes the perfect way to share the full story of your day and to be able to share with friends and family when they visit. You can duplicate the albums as the perfect gift for parents.
