Now that you have your photos back, it's time to print your favorite snaps, and show them off to the world. We strongly suggest staying away from your quick one-hour photo locations or your at-home printers, and have them printed by a professional lab. One-hour photo printers and home printers are designed for smartphone cameras. They tend to add unwanted color correction to images. They also use cheaper materials and use a faster, less sharp, printing processes. You may lose detail and color tone.


Who we suggest for printing?


mpix.com is by far our favorite lab for photo printing. In our opinion, they are one of the best printing labs in America - and we have tried a lot! They are user friendly, have fast turn-around times, and offer quality products at great prices.


Artifact Uprising has so many fun ways to print your photos. They are perfect for gifts. It is definitely worth checking out!


PRO TIP: We have spent a lot of time color correcting your photos for printing. If the lab you choose has an option "DO NOT COLOR CORRECT", we suggest clicking it. Otherwise your photos may appear differntly when they arrive in your mailbox.


Feel free to email us with any questions you may have. Happy printing!










Life Update! It has been an amazing 9 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments. You can check out our new work by heading to jadaanddavid.com or following us on instagram @jadaanddavid.

There are still a couple more opportunities to work with us this fall! We have a limited number of Thanksgiving Front Porch Sessions available. We also have fall mini sessions available at some of our favorite locations around RVA for select dates this fall! You can book those sessions directly from this link!
