Pro Corner: Crystal Cofie - Inspiring Print Products for Wedding Photography
Updated: Feb 8
Wedding Day (and a couple's season leading up to) can be considered the most memorable chapter of a couple's lives *because* of the Wedding Photographer's storytelling vision, turned into printed mementos that are cherished and passed down as heirlooms. Crystal Cofie prioritizes her client experience, not only when capturing their story, but in her curation of printed products offered. Scroll below to hear from Crystal in her own words which Bay Photo products she favorites for her clients, and why.
"When ordering my Bay Photo products, I was blown away by the ease of navigating their website and using their ordering system. The variety of printing products offered are perfect for any occasion, or interior decorative setting."
"I ordered one of the large Acrylic Prints for my clients to complement the sleek modern minimalist style in their home, and it was perfect!! It's size 20x30" and comes with easy-to-install instructions, and polished stainless posts to support the weight of the acrylic. It's PERFECT for office space looks, or industrial, mid-century designs. The packaging was extremely secure and provided sturdy protection for delivery. This is so important with delicate prints."
"Another wonderful acrylic product I ordered was the Acrylic Block. It can serve as a multifunctional décor piece for your office desk while using it as a paperweight, or for your fireplace mantle. It also saves space, because it replaces the use of a photo frame."
"I love a traditional style that has a modern twist, and that leads to an infatuation with the Framed MetalPrints! They honestly stopped me in my tracks when I unbox them. The smooth Metal Frame gives this MetalPrint a more traditional design which is perfect if you love the Metals but always felt they gave more of an industrial look without the frames! The sturdy, quality of the metal can surely be displayed for multiple generations to come, making it a family heirloom piece. The matte finish gives this timeless perception of quality. Yes, MetalPrints can be ordered alone, but adding the Metal Frame is what gives you a traditional feel. The secure wire attached to the back of the print allows for an easy hanging job!"
"Want to have your groom (or bride) pleasantly surprised on wedding day just as shown above? Boudoir shoots are always an option, which result in beautiful Albums as gifts. My favorite printed Album is from the quality lab of Bay Photo."
"You can even use the images from a couple's engagement session to create a wedding guest sign-in book. There's plenty of room on the pages for guests to sign and leave sweet messages to the couple. The wedding is a great opportunity to showcase an engagement session and preserve them in a quality printed book. I really love the quality of the printed pages, it's true to color. A printed book is also a great option for wedding photographers to include in one of their collections of gift to clients on their wedding day!"
"The ease of ordering, quality print products, and direct delivery are parts of the wonderful company service. The online customer service team is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I rely so much on efficiency so that I can adequately serve and present my art to my clients in a timely manner."
"One more reason to allow Bay Photo to serve you is that they are a green company! That was such a special bonus to learn, and know that while using them, I too am taking part in helping our planet."
