Sakurah’s Flower Studio Feature

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.

Where should I print my pictures?

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.

Autumn Mini Sessions

Yay for Octobers and Autumn Mini Sessions! I’m offering these small sessions again this year. I’ve offered similar packages in the days of Allyson Paynter Photography but there have been a few tweaks, I’m actually able to offer them for even less! $15 less to be exact.

Who can argue with saving a few dollars?

If you’d like to book a session feel free to message me via the contact form, or by emailing allyson@paynterco.ca

Looks forward to jumping in leaves for the next few weeks!

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer!

So we’ve been working on a Summer Photo Challenge. It’s a little different than what we usually do – but it’s fun! Every other day or so I’m going to be posting a photo that has to do with easy Summer food or beverages. Summer is filled with family reunions, picnics, days at the beach etc. I thought it would be fun to share a few of the things I’ll be making and enjoying this Summer. Besides, where’s the fun in making great looking food if you can’t photograph it!? Wait, what do you mean… doesn’t everybody do that? haha Check out the gallery below!
