So, I’m about to place a prints order for our engagement pictures, and I’m honestly torn about some of them. I love so many, and I would love to display them, and I feel like 5x7s are nicer to display, but I don’t know that I will need or have space to display so many of them!
I know I could potentially get a frame that would fit several 4×6 pictures or I could put them in albums, but then I feel like I won’t be prominently featuring some of my favorites that I would love to see all the time.
I just don’t know if anybody else had a preference when they ordered- I have several poses in my cart right now that are in each size, and I need to shrink my order down a bit, so I’m weeding out the duplicates.
Let me know what you think!

I only made one print from my e-pics. They are not really something I would want to display too many of.
The wedding pics on the other hand…LOL! I went overboard.

@Theresa90405: That’s what FI said too- He said not to go overboard b/c they’re just e-pics.
I still want to display many of them, but I currently have duplicates in my cart b/c I can’t decide which sizes I want.
Once I weed out the duplicates, my order will be a lot smaller 🙂

4×6 for proofing or basic albums
5×7 or even 8×10 for tables or shelves
11×14+ for wall portraits
You can get one of those frames with four 4×6 slots to show a sequence of some sort in your engagement pics, maybe do that if you want to do something with the 4×6’s. Also, don’t forget about the parents, they will most likely want prints (5×7+)

You can also get mats to enlarge 4x6s. I think it just depends on the space where you want to display them and how much room you have.

I prefer 5x7s framed alone but I also like the look of smaller photos all collaged together on a wall of frames!

We picked only 3-4 photos to enlarge. That was all.
The rest (35 pictures) we made into a photo book through Adoramapix. We figured that printing all of our epics and putting them around the house was a bit excessive. Instead, the photo book will be used as our guest book, our guests will sign it, and we can look at it whenever we want as a momento!
