Nixplay Frames: The Perfect Complement To Wedding Photography
By: Tracy Dorr
Having been a professional wedding photographer for over fifteen years, I’ve seen all types of photo albums to suit every style and budget. These beautiful storytelling devices become cherished heirlooms, treasured by families over the years. But as digital photography continues to evolve, wedding photographers would inevitably provide their clients with an increasing number of images.
Every year we shoot more and more—rarely under 1000 pictures per wedding. Social media and websites like Pinterest feed the bridal brainstorm, making it easier than ever to generate ideas for interesting wedding poses and add personal touches to the couple’s wedding. This necessitates more photos, and the traditional albums are simply unable to adapt to that quantity of images.
While there is still a valid argument for selecting the best images to feature in book format, Nixplay Frames broadens the conversation by offering a unique option: a digital showcase for a large number of images, letting you relive all of your wedding’s highlights over and over.
The nice thing about Nixplay Frames is that they can complement the traditional photo album. It doesn’t have to be a competition: You can put the choicest selections in the photo album for display on your coffee table, and save the lighthearted candid shots for your Nixplay Frame. There are plenty of images that, though memorable for the bride and groom, may not warrant being printed in an archival album or as a large wall print. The Nixplay Frame can be their home.
Since Nixplay Frames can hold so many images, it’s gratifying as a photographer to know that your photos will be seen, lived with and appreciated. We work hard to create something beautiful that will last forever, and it’s disappointing to see images stored on a hard drive or USB, never being printed and eventually forgotten. I personally appreciate the Nixplay frames for providing a satisfying counterpoint.
The frames’ Wi-Fi capability adds another immensely attractive feature. Unlike a traditional photo album, these frames can easily adapt to your household as it changes. You can continuously add pictures from your phone or device to your Nixplay Frame, interspersing new images with your wedding photographs. It lifts the limits of a traditional album and makes it a very easy piece to live with.
I am personally thrilled that larger sizes are being offered. I just received the 15-inch and I’m thrilled by the larger screen. This gives skilled photographers a way to showcase the finer details of their work. The bigger the screen and the higher the image quality, the more impact your work will have on the viewer. I relish the opportunity for people to see my work on a bigger scale so they can appreciate the quality and detail that I labored over.
If you’re still thinking of getting a Nixplay Frame, I advise you to take the plunge. These frames are the perfect complement to a professional photographer’s work.
