Why are consumer lab prints so much cheaper than the ones your photographer offers? Consumer labs like Walgreens, Shutterfly, etc., are like the dollar tree version of print options. Sure the products are cheap, but how long are they going to last? How long until that beautiful framed photo of your family begins to fade because it has no UV protection? How long until it develops a yellow or blue tint? Will it even look like the original photo your photographer created?
Hiring a professional photographer is an investment. Anyone can take a photo but you’re paying for the artists style, knowledge, skill level and ability to offer the finest quality products.
All of my prints have an archival value of 100 years in home display & 200 years in dark storage. Meaning they will not lose their color, fade or change tones.
After all, don’t you want these beautiful images to be around for generations and not just a few years?
