It’s easy to ask the question of why one should buy their prints through a professional photographer these days. There are a huge amount of consumer-facing print labs popping up everywhere. So, it’s easy to be tempted to try printing photos on your own. After years of experience in the photographic print industry, however, I feel very strongly that purchasing prints and photo products directly through my studio is going to result in higher overall satisfaction. Here are four reasons why the best prints come through your professional photographer.
The photo laboratory I use only sells to professional photographers; it is not open to the general public. Their standards for color correction and color control are many steps above what you would find at a drugstore, Costco, or Walmart. When I submit photos to print at my lab, I know that print is going to look very close to what I see on my screen in terms of color. Skin tones will be rich and creamy without strange green or purple shifts commonly seen at cheaper printing sources. The best prints will be luminous and vibrant. Colors will be true to what you see on your screen.
I put as much care into the packaging and presentation of my products as the prints themselves! Unlike cheap prints at a big-box retail store, my photographs come beautifully presented and ready to give as gifts right out of the box.
The cropping and editing of images for different sizes of prints may seem like a trivial matter, but it can make all the difference in how your final product turns out. Cropping an image perfectly for various print sizes takes a trained artistic eye. I take great care to preserve the essence of the image, even if parts of it are being cut out. Without an experienced eye to crop images properly, your photographs may come out in uncomfortable or awkward compositions.
I absolutely, 100% stand by my products. If you’re not satisfied, I am not either and I’ll do everything in my power to ensure that your print products are delivered perfectly. I will walk you through the process of ordering prints from start to finish.
I feel so fortunate that I get to call this work. Who else gets to wake up every single day and help families celebrate life & love? I love that I get to tell their story. It is incredible to be able to create a moment in amongst all of the chaos that is new parenthood, where new moms and dads can really just focus on that amazing, tiny human that they created. I am pretty lucky if you ask me!
