Recently Sakurahs Flower Studio featured our photography in her wedding blog post “Vanessa and Ryan – A Summer Beginning“. Vanessa and Ryan’s picturesque Island wedding was what dreams are made of. Sakurah’s floral arrangements definitely lend a hand in creating a breathtaking atmosphere at Shaw’s Hotel. Looking forward to working with her again in the future.
This is easily one of the most asked questions that we get.
While I always recommend a Professional Print Lab – there are a couple questions you can ask yourself to determine whether it’s really necessary.
What are the pictures being used for?
If you’re images are being printed no larger than 5×7 for use in an album or to include with a Christmas Card I would suggest printing them at a kiosk. There are varying qualities of Kiosks, but we highly recommend going to Shoppers Drug Mart. There are numerous locations on the island and they tend to produce the best color quality. If you’re looking for a size over 8×10, you can order online – but read more about this below. Always keeping mind that the colors you see on screen can vary from what you’ll receive in print (unless your monitor is calibrated to that specific printer). For example, if we print at Walmart we typically have to lighten up the images using Photoshop beforehand because they tend to print darker than intended.
Are they going to be enlarged?
If you’re planning to display your photographs in a frame or gift them for someone else to display, we always recommend printing at a professional lab. We order ours from a Canadian company called Technicare and they usually arrive in 5-7 business days. The quality is outstanding, and colors are crisp and they offer a variety of laminating and mounting services to protect your print. You’ll also have the flexibility to print custom sizes and a variety of stock options such as Canvas Prints or Float Wraps.
Hope this is helpful and will guide you in the right direction! Never hesitate to contact us to learn more.

For example the card picture will say “Happy Holiday’s! from the Paynter Family!” We’ll just include it in with your images to go get printed and then you can tuck them in your Christmas Cards to pass out! Simple.
You would have to be without internet and television in order to miss the trending ALS #icebucketchallenge that has been going viral lately. Some large names have taken part – Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and many more. It’s actually very impressive. What’s more impressive is the millions of dollars in donations that the challenge has garnered. It all started with Pete Frate’s former Captain of the Boston College baseball team and professional baseball player. He was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2012, at the age of 27.
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take part in A Heritage M.E.A.L this year. Prior to being asked to volunteer my time on a couple of design projects, I didn’t know a whole lot about the event. After talking with Emily Brown and Shannon Courtney about what they needed and doing some research on the event, I decided this was definitely something I wanted to support, but even more than that – I wanted to attend.
We have a little gift for all our upcoming 2014 wedding couples! If you book your wedding with P&C before March 31st you’ll get 50 custom designed Thank-you cards with your order. You don’t have to share this to win them but if you have a friend or family member that’s getting married, feel free to share with them.
The cards will feature a couple of your favorite wedding photo’s on the front, your wedding colors, as well as a space on the back to write your thank-you message.
