Of your many wedding expenses, photography is the one thing that increases in value over time. But too often, images are left to languish on a disc or computer. Even printed photos end up stored in cardboard boxes. That’s no way to treat your cherished memories.
Once your big day is over, we offer much more than just a jumble of digital files on a disc. You paid for a professional to photograph your big day, why not enlist these same experts to ensure your images are gorgeously displayed?
Carina Photographics makes it easy for you. After capturing every detail of your wedding day, we use our two decades of design expertise to create gorgeous heirloom artwork from your imagery. From artisan, custom-designed Minneapolis wedding photo albums to fine art wall portrait prints, to delicate handmade image boxes and more, our heirloom artwork items are made to last so they can be treasured for generations. Take a look at our amazing options!
HEIRLOOM WEDDING PHOTO ALBUMS
Wedding photo albums are the pinnacle of our heirloom offerings.
We partner with one of the most prestigious wedding album artisans in the world to craft elegant, custom archival albums. Our albums are bespoke, individually customized and tailored to your wedding aesthetics and personalities, and then carefully handmade by the artisans in Italy.
The quality is unsurpassed. Unlike the popular but cheaply made photo books available from many other photographers and online vendors, our albums are dramatic, elegant and highly customizable, designed to be a unique expression of you and your special day. Your wedding photo album will be cherished forever. You’ll page through it repeatedly over the years, share it with family and friends, and pass it on so it can be appreciated for years to come.
THE ALBUM DESIGN PROCESS
When we meet for your Image Review Session (after your wedding or portrait session), we will discuss options for your album and box materials and design. I have numerous samples to review and lots of swatches to choose from. Once you choose your favorite options, I custom-design an initial draft of your album layout. I send you a PDF file to review, as well as a 3D mockup of the album and box. You are free to make any edits you see fit. Once you are set on the design and layout, I send the electronic files and specs to my album crafters in Italy. Once the album is complete, they ship it to us and it's ready for you to cherish for generations!
PHOTOGRAPHIC WALL ART
Printed fine art images can be hung on a wall to serve as a wonderful daily reminder of some of the most important moments of your lives. We offer wall art in several mediums. Choose from traditional prints, gallery wrapped canvas or metal. I work with a local framer if you'd like to add that option as well. All are handcrafted heirlooms — to be displayed and enjoyed for years to come.
We also offer complimentary installation for many of our wall art products. Our professional installer delivers and installs them directly in your home.
HANDMADE PRINT BOXES
An exquisite, handmade, foiled glass box is a novel medium for displaying your favorite photographs.
And these are no ordinary photographic prints — printed on Hahnemühle 100% cotton, acid-free and lignin-free, UV protected professional photo paper, our prints last up to 6x longer than traditional lustre photo prints. Not only that, but the colors pop, the detail is unsurpassed, and the quality is extraordinary.
The photographs are finished, matted and ready for framing. Our handmade, heirloom Print Boxes make perfect gifts for yourselves and loved ones.
Our heirloom artwork doesn’t stop there. Beyond wedding photography albums and our other items, we also offer a wide variety of options for almost any of your needs — engagement albums and guest books, custom-designed greeting cards and save-the-dates, gift prints, parent albums, apps, slideshows, and more!
Every step of the way, we fully consult with you and manage production to provide the best possible heirloom art pieces and service so you don’t have to worry about a thing. All of our artwork includes a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and many include a Lifetime Manufacturing Warranty.
Contact me if you would like to visit my Minneapolis-St Paul photography studio and see some samples of these beautiful heirloom artwork options in person. There is nothing like holding them in your hands and seeing the gorgeous quality up close.
