Keepsake Print Boxes | Joy Michelle Photography

Today’s Wedding Wednesday features Keepsake print boxes: A tangible way to relive your memories.photography Print proof boxes Wedding printsKeepsake Print Boxes are the most recent addition to my print product offerings and are a beautiful alternative or compliment to a traditional album. One thing I really love about these boxes is the ability to spread your images out around you and experience the memories of your day in a different way. They’re also super compact and travel friendly which is great for sharing your wedding day with friends or storing right on your coffee table.

3 Words for 2015

My film camera line up

You know what’s funny? Not until I sat down to work on this blog post did I realize that I have more film cameras than I do digital! But it makes sense as I started my photography journey on a film camera and I still prefer shooting film.

I just love the credit-card- size of the print it produces. Continue reading
