I'm just so excited for you! I hope you are LOVING married life and that your wedding gallery is helping you relive the start of your marriage over and over again. Below are a few tips for how to get the most out of your gallery & how to enjoy all your images.

I want you to have ALL of your memories in your possession forever and ever! I also want you to share your images freely and without any hesitation. This is why I deliver your images via an online gallery that you can download and share your images easily.

I recommend downloading all of the images onto a few computers in different places so that you have your own backups of the photos. I will store your files on my hard drives for one year, so make sure you've backed up your files by your first anniversary! 

I suggest ordering prints right away - after all, your photos aren't doing you any good sitting around on a hard drive! Print your prints, hang them in your home to relive & celebrate the start of your marriage, and enjoy them for years to come.

I strongly encourage my clients to order professional prints directly through their gallery to have beautiful prints that match the color, saturation, and contrast of the digital image. Non-professional printers (think Costco, Walgreens, etc.) often color correct poorly, saturate inconsistently, or adjust contrast in a way that will distort the integrity of your images. See a few examples of printing uh-ohs below to see why I suggest ordering professional prints directly through your gallery!

Matt & I look through our wedding album every year on our anniversary, and it's one of my most precious possessions - I love reliving the start of our marriage and sharing it with friends and family!

I use the same album company for my clients' albums that I used for my own, so I can attest to how high the quality is and how beautifully they turn out! I'll custom design your album with you and help create a professional heirloom that will be passed down for generation to generation.

Trust me, your family and friends will LOVE you if you share your wedding images with them, and let them know that they're welcome to download and order prints through your gallery link.

So, send out a quick group email or text with your gallery link! I always ask appreciate the internet love, so please be sure your friends & family know to tag me @samikathryn on Instagram and Sami Kathryn Photography on Facebook. I can't wait to see your community enjoy your images!

If you're needing to send out thank you notes (hello, amazing registry gifts!), printing a beautiful card with one of your favorite portraits on it is a sweet way to share a special moment and write out your note of thanks!

Plus, your bridal party and family have been on quite the journey with you through wedding planning & preparing for the start of your marriage! A framed family photo, canvas of you together, or a few of your favorite prints would be a sweet way to say thank you.

If you need anything at all, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm here to help you and support you in this journey toward marriage.
