Where are your images right now? Are they still on the DVD set you selected from Kristen Wynn Photography?  Maybe they’re on Facebook too.

You invested a lot in your wedding day or portrait session. You had your hair and makeup done, new outfits for the whole family, maybe a manicure, had your engagement ring cleaned, your husband had his hair trimmed, I know some of you even whitened your teeth for the big day. You spent time planning locations and pinning inspiration shots on Pinterest.

And yet the biggest photo you have displayed in your home is an 8×10″. An 8×10″ is what we refer to in the industry as a “desk print,” meaning it is placed on a table. 8×10″ are usually too small to be put on a wall as a rule of thumb.

Why not go bigger? I know 24×36″ sounds big, but when you hang it on the wall, it’s just right.

Amy and Will chose a favorite image from their Oakland, Pittsburgh engagement session last winter and had it stretched and mounted on canvas.

When the order arrived here at the office, I loved it. I wish I could have kept it as a sample for my office walls, but alas, it had to go to its rightful home at Amy’s place.

As I packaged it for delivery, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of the canvas image. Thanks so much, Amy and Will, for the inspiration for this blog post!

We absolutely LOVE our canvas print and will definitely be ordering more! The larger size looks awesome on the wall and the quality of the canvas is excellent. We are happy customers and highly recommend this product. Thanks KWP!

Elizabeth and Ryan were my October wild weather wedding. For Christmas this year, they chose to do Mini 4×4″ albums as gifts. They have a daughter and she means the world to them, so we definitely wanted to feature her throughout the book!

Danielle and Dustin wanted to do the Mini Kiss 4×4″ albums this year. I waited to blog these book layouts until the Christmas gift-giving was complete!

When I work with my couples on albums, we can do the design one of three ways-it’s your choice! You can pick every single image for the album, I can pick every image for the album for you, or you can pick your absolute favorites and then have me use my artistic eye to select the remaining images to tell the story of your day.

With Danielle, she and Dustin selected their favorites, and then I completed the design by selecting complimentary images to make a complete book. As always, you have a chance to approve your design and make changes before it goes to print. This is an easy way to design an album, especially if you have so many photos, you don’t even know where to start in selecting and designing the book!

You know how special you all are to me. You are my first wedding couples.

Whether you are my first ever couple from December 2009 (Hi, Angel and Amanda!) to my most recently shot wedding, Jennifer and Philip, last weekend, I still think about all of you. As I prepare to roll out a new website, I’ve been looking through each and every one of your images again.

I know quite a few of you have a new baby, and even more of you have written me that you’ve purchased a home, added a pet to the family, moved a long distance, started a new job, went back to school, or delved further into your career, your passions, or your interests. Life gets busy!

Before I got married, I had every intention of crafting my own wedding album. I was excited to sit down and look at the images and create an heirloom. But between moving a thousand miles, spending time together as a new family, job searching, taking a long honeymoon, volunteering, traveling to visit friends and family, and launching a new business, time got away from me. I kept thinking “I really have to get on that…” and yet I never did. And I’m in this photography industry and have the resources, software, and interest in doing it-I just never got around to it. I can’t imagine how much more overwhelmed I would have been if I didn’t know where to start.

Finally, after two years of being married, I asked my photographer to create my album, and I’m so glad I did. My husband and I opened the heavy box with anticipation, and explored every page. In our busy lives, we just weren’t going to ever have the time to sit down and put a book together from scratch ourselves.

As time goes on, it becomes less of a priority to you (out of necessity) when it should become *more* of a priority to have something tangible and printed to look through, to remind you of the beauty and fun of that day.

So here’s a 2012 New Year’s Resolution for you-Craft and create your wedding album! I’m not saying this just to sell books-I just really want you to have something more tangible than just a disc. If you’d like to purchase one through me, we can certainly arrange that-just shoot me an email (kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com). Even if your wedding was two years ago-it’s not too late! If you still want to make your own, make it your resolution to finally sit down and do it this month!

I’m speaking to you too, my photographer friends! I know some of you have DVD discs just sitting there, with “Make album” on your forever-long to-do list!

My client and friend Ashley is a get-it-done kind of girl. She was married in July 2011. Ashley is the opposite of a procrastinator! We laid out her album and ended up with a whopping 80 pages! I am so happy with the classic look of the book and to have it sit on her shelf as the Q Family’s first family heirloom.

Ashley and her husband married in their home church in July, and their theme was “Love Story.” Ashley printed out many of her favorite images in a small spiral bound album on one of the consumer websites, and carried it around to show co-workers and friends. But they wanted something much more permanent to put in their home, their first family heirloom. And for this “Love Story,” there were a lot of must-have images for Ash and Ryan-I think our final count together was 196!

Every layout for albums will be customized for each bride and groom, so these are just some of the possibilities for brides and grooms that order an album through Kristen Wynn Photography.

Thanks for looking!

I have been getting more into prints and products lately, and I created this necklace for Jen Stevenson of Jen Stevenson Photo. Jen sent me over this adorable photo of her two little girls, and then we incorporated their initials and the year their family was established on charms via Kotori Jewelry.

A wide variety of other jewelry is available as well, so email me at kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com to see all of the offerings!

I also had this 24×36″ mounted print ordered from Mike and Kim’s destination wedding.

Go big with your prints because once they are in the space, they are just the right size! These prints can be mounted alone or placed in a frame as well.

You can email kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com for custom photo product needs. Christmastime is just around the corner! 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! Thanks to all of you for making 2010 a great year-I hope 2011 is even better.

This year, I hope to showcase some product offerings. For her son’s senior photos, Mrs. S chose to have an 11×14″ mat crafted to be framed. It couldn’t be just any 11×14″ mat though-it needed to match her older son’s senior photos from 2003.

Luckily, we were able to track down something really similar, so now both of the S sons can be showcased side-by-side on the wall.

If there’s a product you are looking for, let me know and I’ll do my best to get it for you. Customer satisfaction is my number one priority. I want you to LOVE your images and showcase them in a way you love as well.

I wish you all a wonderful 2011!
