Custom Wall Art Display Design, Consultation, and Installation
Our photography process begins with the end in mind. Your portraits deserve a place on your wall and in your life.
Digital files of images are important for sharing online and for feeling ownership of the artwork we have created, so we always include a digital file version of every portrait you order. However, files stay on drives, media becomes corrupted, damaged, or lost, and DIY printed images end up with poor-quality paper or finishes. At Missy Timko Photography, we find that unacceptable! We will make sure you also have a high-quality print and a digital copy of every portrait you order.
The goal of many of our portrait sessions is the creation of a stunning gallery wall, using your favorite photos, for display in your home and keepsakes to last a lifetime. We offer a curated selection of high-end custom framing, museum-quality canvas art pieces, and other stunning wall art products. We travel every year to find new and interesting display pieces to offer our clients. We will guide you in choosing the exact right sizes, colors, and finishes for your home, style, and budget using software that will mock up your wall art to scale, on YOUR walls. Moving or not sure where to install your artwork? We can create something neutral that will look amazing no matter where we install it. Installation is FREE with the purchase of three or more pieces or with artwork over 40 inches wide.
Not sure what to do with the rest of your favorite images? We also offer archival photo albums, wood folio boxes, desk prints, and other unique desktop items. Most of our clients select from our portrait bundles, starting at eight portraits and going up to 25 or more images, which include a printed and a high-resolution digital copy of the images you select. All of our bundles include prints as our gift to you, but our larger portrait bundles include a larger gift - your choice of an album or a handcrafted wooden folio box for storing your photos as well as other family memories. The box itself is gorgeous and features high-end woods, a beautiful velvet interior, hidden magnetic closure, and a soft close hinge. Inside the box is a matted fine art print set featuring your ordered images. Custom engraving of your family name is included, or you might choose a box that has a window on the front for featuring one of your portraits on a desk or shelf. Alternatively, we offer your choice of a free custom-printed album with library-style binding in a wide range of colors, textures, and layouts.
Framed Fine Art Prints
Framed fine art prints are Missy Timko Photography's most popular option for family and lifestyle portrait display. We are proud to offer traditional, and modern framing options to match any decor.
Following your photo session we will hold a portrait ordering session. During this session, we will create custom framed portraits to fit your wall spaces, and specifications along with your personal style.
Gallery-Wrapped Canvases & Framed Canvas
Printed directly on fine art canvas, your images are wrapped around a custom made stretcher frame for a clean, gallery style look. Ready to hang upon arrival, you'll enjoy instant gratification coupled with lifelong memories in a museum quality image.
We also offer (and prefer!) framed canvases for a more finished look. A floating frame around a canvas allows a slight space or ‘float’ between the canvas and the inside edge of the frame, giving the art a recessed perspective, with a sophisticated and graceful separation between frame and surroundings. Framed canvas prints create an eye-catching, elegant look to compliment your favorite images.
All gallery wraps include a laminate finish that not only protects the gallery wrap from scuffs, scratches, and cracking, it also provides UV light protection for years of enjoyment.
Through our custom service, we can assist you in creating interesting and unique displays for your home, helping to plan your wall galleries with your favorite images. We can plan versatile collages, customized for any space and style, which can be easily rearranged as needs change or relocated to other parts of the home.
The best way to display portraits is to marry the collection with the style of your decor. When considering lifestyle photography, groupings of portraits in a series are an effective and contemporary way to tell your story. Our goal is to provide you with image displays as dynamic and original as you are!
Wall art hanging is complementary with any grouping of three or more items.
All sessions with us include a complementary in-person design consultation and ordering appointment at our well-appointed photography studio in Mt. Lebanon. We have specialized software, tools, and experience to help create just the right display for a tasteful, professionally installed look in your home with a personal touch. We will present to you interesting and unique ways to display your artwork, based on our years of experience in photography and design.
Most of our clients are looking to create wall displays, but we work with a range of budgets and tastes and will show you a curated selection of things you may be interested in based on our initial conversations as well as my impression of your inclinations and style. Some choose smaller desk items, albums, and prints only, some choose multiple large wall displays, and some want it all! We are by your side to guide you into the things that will bring you joy every day and fit into your lifestyle.
We Guarantee our Artistry
We stand behind our finished products at Missy Timko Photography. We choose to work with only the best vendors, with the highest quality finishes to create your piece of art. We inspect and replace anything that arrives to our studio less than perfect. If anything happens to your artwork once it has been installed, get in touch so we can assist with a repair or replacement.
Additional Items & Finishes
In addition to our custom wall art, we can also provide desk and shelf sized items for you and your family to enjoy. We offer a beautiful selection of acrylic blocks, boxed fine art prints, small frames, and albums. We also offer additional selections for finished artwork, including metal and acrylic, and through our design service we will discover what will look the most cohesive with your existing decor. We stay up to date with the latest trends in photography display by attending trade shows, offering traditional finishes as well as the latest and greatest trends in the photography world. We are proud to share digital image files for display on social media with every wall art purchase.
