A New Wedding Photo Album Trend We Love: The Fine Art Print Box

Wedding Photography

Sure, everyone loves having a beautifully bound album to display on their coffee table and flip through on anniversaries, but that's not the only way to share your stunning wedding photos. If you're looking for a creative way to share your pictures, beyond the album and a frame, we've found a new idea we totally love: The print box.

"In this digital age, it's so tempting to store everything on USB drives and in the Cloud," says Jessica Tincopa of Jessica Elizabeth Photo + Cinema. "But photographs are meant to be shared and passed down from generation to generation to tell our stories and share our legacy." While she's got nothing against Facebook albums and a bevy of Instagram posts, she advises her clients to invest in prints, too.

So why a print box instead of an album? This alternative format is a boxed collection of larger prints, giving each image full attention front-and-center in your hands. We love the nostalgic feel of pulling out a stack of stunning images, and how keeping the images in a box creates a moment of discovery that you just don't get from an album. Of course you'll still want a bound album to tell the full story of your wedding day, but for those most special of moments, the fleeting emotions and standout details, a box of matted prints will really set them apart. A box of fine art prints treats your wedding images and your celebration as a work of art, something to be cherished, thoughtfully displayed, and always close at hand to touch, examine, and share. And the boxes themselves are worth displaying, wrapped in linen and tied with soft ribbon.

"Who knows if our grandchildren will be able to access photos on USB drives and CDs! But they'll be able to touch, hold, and see prints," Tincopa continues. "We are true believers that prints matter. Fine art prints will always be lasting family heirlooms."
