Photo Finish

Digital Foci’s Wedding Photo Book

Fast-forward to after the wedding, and you’ve got 800 proofs from the photographer to sort. There’s not an album large enough to schlep all of those pictures to every relative who wants to see. Time to go digital.

Now available in pretty pearl white, Digital Foci’s latest photo book is a wedding-appropriate digital album (similar to a digital frame, but portable) in a lovely leather-like white case. Since everyone will need a turn at the next family gathering, the album has 2.5 hours on its internal battery and 4GB of memory — and theĀ 8-inch color LCD screen means even Grandma will be able to see the pics clearly. To separate ceremony from cake-cutting snapshots, a special feature displays each folder of photos as a separate album then lets you run a slideshow with a page-turning effect, much as you would with hard copies.

If only it could write thank-you notes.


Color Me Beautiful

Custom Wedding Portraits by Figment Studio

You’ve spent a pretty penny to book the best wedding photographer who will capture you at your finest. But there are only so many albums and frames to fill before overload sets in.

To eternalize your images, hand over your favorite photo to Brooklyn-based artist Kristine Baerlin, who creates contemporary commissioned portraits based on treasured snapshots. Using her signature circular pattern that nods to the pop art tradition (or the more traditional dot style), she will hand paint a masterpiece that’s a fanciful likeness of your special moment. Choose a beautiful color combination that best suits your style, and welcome a museum-quality canvas into your new home.

It’s picture perfect.
