Your Wedding Photographs: Where to Print

As a professional photographer, this is one of the most frequently asked questions I receive.  For the best quality and price, I’ve learned to ask waiters what dish they like and locals where they like to have a glass of wine. It will usually get you to the best places, in the least amount of time.

I have a few tips and labs that I like listed in this post.  And these places are where I print my own photographs…

A.  Prints:  MPIX.  I order all my prints and proofs here. They’re on-line, but they’re good AND they’re fast. They are reasonably priced. You can go elsewhere, but printers and screens are calibrated differently. The difference in calibrated often leads to bad contrast and unrealistic colring.

These folks are consistent and quality. Your skin won’t be green and your lighting won’t be over/underexposed.

B.  Instagram:  Prinstagram.  Clever, right? Cards, prints, calendars, magnets, tiny books… (I mean tiny! I love anything that is a miniature version of itself).  It’s a clever way to integrate your memories into your home.

C.  Albums:  Call a professional. The best way to keep your images is in an album. This allows for “dark storage” (no UV rays bombarding the images daily for long periods) in a nice package you will be proud to have on display.  

I have chosen not to list photobooks!  They are not printed on archival paper, therefore, they fade/melt/smudge throughout the years.  These can be gifts, but not a substitute for your wedding album!  

And there iss absolutely nothing wrong with taking your proofs and dropping them into a patchwork album.  But if you want durable, gorgeous, printed images for your home or children or guests to view, call a well-known and talented photographer. We have access to both fancy companies and fancy products that the public does not.

Think Christmas. Or an anniversary gift. It is an investment, but these are images you will want keep near and dear to you and your loved ones.

Kelley Whisnant + Sam Saussy | Athens, Ga. Wedding | The Classic Center | Alyssa Alig Photography

Kelley and Sam got married at the Classic Center in Athens.  I loved being able to capture the special moments between them on their wedding day.

No two colors look better in the Classic City than red and black, which made Kelley and Sam’s wedding beautiful. With red roses and black accents, the ceremony and reception were absolutely stunning.

I was privileged to both shoot their wedding and to have photographed the first wedding in the new Atrium!  If you’re looking for a classy space with incredible ceilings, you should definitely look into this venue.

Kelley and Sam, I enjoyed being able to capture your special day and I wish you all the best in the future!
