How A Gallery Wall Is Designed
I use a unique visualization software that takes all the guesswork out of the design process by showing you exactly what your images will look like in your own space! This way you can actually “see” and get a good feel for the end result. Before our session, I’ll ask you to send me a photo of the wall (or walls) you’re considering a wall gallery. I’ll send you steps on how to best take the photo- it’s super easy! A quick iPhone snap will do.
At our design appointment, I will show you a few designs for a gallery wall based on the size of the space as well as your personal style and taste. I have several beautiful frame choices available! The best part is, my frame choices are timeless and perfectly match any home decor style.
Fine Art Prints vs. Prints From A Store
Prints done at places like Costco or Target are never true to color and don’t do your beautiful imagery justice. A lot of the time, your image will be “edited” before print, drastically reducing the quality, color, and tone of your original image. You also won’t have the option of matte, only glossy or lustre, which often does not look the best when framed due to glare and reflection.
Fine art prints are printed on 100% cotton matte archival paper (thicker than standard photo paper) and finished with a protective spray to preserve your beautiful artwork for decades. They last 6 times longer than a traditional lustre print. The matte finish provides little to no reflection of light. This allows you to hang your precious images in any part of your home, no matter how much direct sunlight your wall gets. The best part? They display true colors, and are absolutely stunning in person! In my opinion, nothing compares to the beauty of a fine art print!
All framed prints come with invisible art glass which essentially gives the frame the appearance that there is no glass. It is used by museums around the world to reveal true colors and reduce unwanted reflections. If you’re going to hang photos in your home, this is the absolute best most long-lasting way to do it
Complimentary installation is included with all framed artwork purchases. Once your beautiful framed prints arrive, we will schedule a time for our installer to come and professionally hang your gallery wall. This is a favorite for all of my clients who have gallery walls! The worst thing is spending time figuring out the measurements to space your frames or nailing in more holes than necessary due to your frames not sitting flush with each other. With a professional install, the whole thing is done in a couple hours and you’re left with gorgeous imagery to enjoy in your home and on your walls every single day.
Framing Your Prints From Past Photo Sessions
If we’ve done a session together (or several!) and your imagery is not yet framed on your walls, let’s make it happen! The beautiful thing about investing in your family memories is being able to proudly display and enjoy them throughout the seasons – on your walls, and in luxurious albums.
