We love printing photos around here (if you didn’t already know), so we asked one of our favorite photographers to tell us their favorite reasons to print. Sacramento-based photographer Christina Best shares her most important reasons why she encourages her clients – and all of you – to print out physical photos!



Being in the business of capturing your best moments and documenting memories is so important, and is something I don’t take lightly. I absolutely love photographing life and its moments, the big ones, the small ones, and everything in between.

This post is all about printing photos and the importance of it. Prints are time capsules that remind you of your best moments, and help you cherish physical memories that may otherwise be stored digitally. Read on to hear some of my other top reasons for printing your photos!
 

1. Time capsules

Every photo is a time capsule… of that day, that time, the occasion, the moment, the outfit, the hair style, etc. It will likely be remembered a little extra just because it was the day you got your photos taken. Maybe it was your wedding, portrait session or family shoot – all of which are wonderful and should be printed for your enjoyment for years to come.
 

2. Sharing (is caring!)

Photo prints are such wonderful mementos that you can share with friends and family. I’ve been known to give photos in the form of prints, books, calendars, etc for all occasions. So often, it’s a favorite gift because there is so much meaning behind the photo and has a personal touch.
 

3. Home décor

You can easily personalize your space by printing an important photo and displaying it in your home or office.

As a fan of gallery walls (and generally hanging prints), I suggest finding a frame or display piece that you love, and then printing images to fit. Or work the other way, and print photos and then find frames. Do what works for you, but be sure to get the images off the screen on onto paper. You won’t regret it!

Plus, there are so many cute ways to decorate! Frames, washi tape, letter boards, DIY – so many options!
 

4. Tangible memories

Having a print that you can hold in your hand makes your memories all the more meaningful. Physical prints are a profound way to remember, to look back on, and to cherish. Don’t let your photos stay stuck on Instagram or your phone forever! Print them, love them, share them, adore them!
 

5. Reminders

I think the most important part of prints is the magic they carry. The way they make your memories come back and remind you of that moment. I think it’ll put a smile on your face.
