4 Reasons to Choose Professional Wedding Photo Printing

Okay, admit it. We are all guilty of using a “convenient” photo printing site like Shutterfly, Costco Photo Center, or, God forbid, CVS, in the past. Not throwing shade, but the last set of prints I saw come out of a CVS photo terminal looked like a spray tan edit was applied in post. Okay, so maybe I am throwing shade. But it’s only because I really, really care about how your photos turn out. After all, this is your WEDDING day we’re talking about! And when your wedding photos look this good, you’ll want to make sure they’re on display for everyone to see. Trust. Below are four reasons you should opt for professional wedding photo printing!

1. Next-Level Quality

When it comes to the best place to print wedding pictures, professional printers are on another level. I outsource all my professional printing to White House Custom Color. WHCC is a top-notch company that uses premium materials to make your photos pop. Every print is meticulously crafted to capture the vibes, colors, and details of your big day (Unlike mass-produced prints like CVS or Shutterfly!)

Another great feature? Your chosen prints will be sent directly from the final wedding photo gallery I share with you. That means there are no additional steps to download and no risk of reducing your file quality along the way!

2. Custom Wedding Album Curation and Design

A wedding photo album is more than just pics—it’s a storybook of your love. I offer bespoke wedding packages with an optional wedding album add-on. From layouts to cover materials, we tailor everything to your vision. When we work together to design your custom album, you get much more than a generic photo book.

Where To Print Wedding Albums

One of my favorite services to provide to my couples is wedding album design and printing through Kissbooks! This is a platform exclusively for photographers that gives me access to endless fabrics, textures, embossing details, and design customizations to create gorgeous keepsake wedding albums. Make sure to ask me about adding a wedding album design to your wedding photography package!

3. Color Consistency

One major issue with basic printing services is color inconsistency. A lot of it has to do with the fact that certain professional edits don’t render correctly on basic photo paper with below-average printing capability. 

~Like I said, if you’re not looking for an unsolicited spray tan, avoid the CVS photo center at all costs.~

When you opt for professional photo printing, we’ll make sure the colors in your photos are true to life. Professional photo printing online guarantees your photos are always vibrant, consistent, and poppin’.

4. Archival Quality That’s Built to Last

Wedding photos are forever memories! Pro printing uses archival-quality paper designed to resist fading and last for decades. This kind of durability is hard (i.e. almost impossible) to find with consumer-grade prints. Choosing professional wedding photo printing means your photos will stay stunning for generations.

DIY Professional Printing

Your wedding day is one of the most iconic moments of your life, and you deserve to relive it in all its glory. While Shutterfly and Costco Photo Center might seem like easy options, nothing beats the quality and experience of professional wedding photo printing. If you choose to DIY your professional prints, make sure to use a consistent and reputable printer!
