Some people say that their wedding day was the best day of their lives. Marrying your best friend, the cake, the bouquet toss, doing the YMCA on the dancefloor — how could it not be? If you just got married, chances are you’re looking for a fun way to show off those amazing wedding memories captured on camera. Why not turn them into custom canvas art?
Most wedding photographers capture hundreds of photos during an average wedding day, and there will be a slew of images captured by your guests as well. So how do you choose which ones to print? Here are a few tips:
1. PICK A SPECIAL MOMENT
Choose a photo that makes you relive the day when you see it up on your wall. Pick something with a bit more of a story behind it: your first kiss as a married couple, the walk back down the aisle together after the ceremony, or even you and your other half’s reactions during the speeches. Sometimes those candid moments make the best photographs!
2. LEAVE IT TO THE EXPERTS
While we’re sure there’ll be a ton of photos for you to choose from your wedding guests, lean towards shots from the photographer you hired instead. This will not only cut down your numbers and make the selection easier, but will also ensure that you are using the best quality photo. Everything from the resolution, exposure, and editing will be expertly taken care of.
3. WHY CHOOSE JUST ONE?
It’s going to be difficult to narrow things down to just one photo, so if you’re having problems deciding why not choose a few photos to print on canvas? Group them together on the same wall and create a storyboard of the big day.
4. GROUP SHOTS FOR GIFTING
Looking for that perfect gift for your parents or your new in-laws? Choose a great family shot so they can have their own canvas creation to hang up as well. The day was just as special to them as it was to you!
5. DON’T BE AFRAID TO GO BIG
The saying is ‘go big or go home’, right? So don’t be afraid to choose a larger sized canvas when ordering your print. Big canvas art will create a unique focal point in any room, so try 24×36″ or 36×54″ pieces to immortalize your special day.
