What to do with Your Wedding Photos – 3 ideas

It would be a shame if this photo was never printed, right? This lovely bride harnessed her inner Audrey Hepburn, and blew everyone away with Gatsbyesque dress. We can easily envision this image and its stunning scenic backdrop as a canvas, metal, or acrylic print.

What to do with Your Wedding Photos

Don’t be the person who receives their wedding images, and then lets them sit on a hard drive for all of eternity. If you’ve been with us for long, you know we are advocates for printing your photos. So to help stir up some ideas, we put together 3 quick ways you can use your wedding photos. Let’s dive in!

Make Your Wedding Photos an Art Object

Take some of your wedding photos to the next level. For some of those artistic shots, such as the couple’s hands or scenic images, display them in exciting ways. Printing on wood, metal, and acrylic are ways to show them off while simultaneously using them as a piece of art. We are big fans of metal and acrylic. We not only offer these in a variety of standalone prints, but we also offer them as options for album covers. It’s definitely a more cool and modern format.

“Thank You” and Holiday Cards

Everyone likes receiving a letter. (If you say you don’t, you’re lying.) You already have access to some stellar imagery, so put them to good use. You can easily use them as thank you cards to send your guests, and use a few different ones as holiday cards. They are sure to be appreciated by adorning your loved ones’ mantles.

Create Heirloom Bouquet Charms

Take your newly taken images, and immediately create an heirloom for your family. Whether or not you plan to have children, this piece will be loved and used by future family members. Think about it. If you’re like me, and didn’t have a bouquet charm created by a grandmother (or anyone else for that matter), wouldn’t you love to carry an heirloom of that special person down the aisle with you? Go ahead and have one created. Until someone is ready to use it, you can easily use it yourself as a holiday ornament. You’ll love this piece more and more as the years go by.

I hope you found this post enjoyable! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out!
