Canvases are probably my most FAVORITE way to display portraits. We already have two from our wedding and intend to order more from our maternity session and once baby girl Tuck arrives. My goal is to have a full-on collage wall displayed in our home. : ) Because I didn't run an album special over the winter like I normally do, I've decided to offer my fine art canvases in select sizes at a reduced price until the end of March! Each canvas is hand-stretched on a custom-built frame, printed with ink rated to last 100 years and then spray-sealed with a UV protective coating. You can order one that is 1.5" deep or 0.75" deep (examples below).

The details (pretty similar to the one I ran in fall 2012 but an even better price):

-16x20" ready-to-hang canvas gallery wrap: $169 (normally priced at $225) -16x24" ready-to-hang canvas gallery wrap: $189 (normally priced at $250)

Your order is sent directly to you -- shipping cost included! All you need to do is email me (mel [at] with the following details by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 31st:

1) Let me know which photo you'd like used, and I'll re-touch it, if necessary, before ordering. 2) Indicate what size depth you'd like (1.5" thickness or 0.75" thickness) 3) Mail payment and GET PUMPED FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL CANVAS that people will be sure to admire. ; )

Please note that I have a limited number of canvases to offer so hurry and get your order in before someone else snags up this deal! Happy Wednesday, y'all. : )


The photo on the left of us on our wedding day (taken by The Schultzes) is the more traditional 1.5" depth, and the bridal party photo on the right (taken by me) is the 0.75" depth.

ALBUMS: New Leather Albums by KISS

Since I started my business, I offered the Sequoia by WillowBook as my 10×10″ leather album; however, it's time for a change, and I’m happy to announce that I am now offering 10×10″ leather albums by KISS! My 4x4" mini albums are from KISS, and I've just fallen in love with the company. I love the preciseness and quality of the printing, and the beautiful, modern colors. Here is my new studio sample (color is blossom) and some sample layouts from Heidi + Eric's wedding in 2012. The other colors available (on the ring, front to back) are: midnight, midtown, picket fence, something blue, sunflower, tiffany, twig, amalfi coast, aquamarine, baby elephant, black tie, blossom, brazil nut, canvas, chocolate, latte & lipstick. (PS: these photos are minimally edited to stay as close to the color offerings as possible.)

Please enjoy my new album! If you're interested in ordering one of these beauties, please message me through the contact tab. Each album comes with an adorable fabric cover to protect and preserve. Optional upgrades are cover imprinting and/or a presentation box.

And if leather doesn't tickle your fancy, take a peak at my 10x10" fabric albums.

The gutter is minimal, which allows for beautiful across-the-spread layout design and printing.

Lay-flat pages!

This is stamped by KISS on the back for studio sample purposes only.


I LOVE celebrating love… whether it be the love between partners, the affection for your animal, the love you have for family/friends… you name it, I'm addicted to love.  : )

In honor of Valentine's Day month this year, I'm offering a 10% discount on my Cypress fabric albums for the ENTIRE month of February. That's right -- you can order any time between now and the 28th!

Couples, if you couldn't find room in your budget while planning your wedding, NOW is the time to do it! In my opinion, there's really no comparison to be made between a digital image and a printed photograph. Albums are my favorite way to view a collection of images, and I LOVE designing them!

Drop me a line at mel [at] melissatuckphoto [dot] com for details and a full price list. : )

A canvas would make a great gift for a loved one (birthday, holiday, anniversary)!

ALBUMS: Cypress Fine Handmade Albums

It's an early birthday over here for Melissa Tuck Photography -- the new album sample has arrived! I am so ecstatic to finally share with you my newest offering from Cypress Albums. Before I get to the goods, a little thoughts from me: I think getting a wedding album is SO important. I know digital negatives are all the rage these days (and yes, they're important too!), but by purchasing an album, you have a way of displaying your wedding photos. I can honestly say that I haven't looked at our DVD of photos more than once since our wedding (and that doesn't take away what a fabulous job The Schultzes did!), but my point is this: We purchased two canvas prints from our wedding, which are currently hanging on our living room wall, and we look at those EVERY SINGLE DAY and are reminded of how wonderful our day was. An album is yet another elegant way to show off the magic of your special day. Off my soapbox and onto these GORGEOUS albums! : )

I chose a neutral platinum for the album cover and a gray presentation box with ivory ribbon. I also added a cover photo.

Gold imprinting (silver and clear also available):

Library bound style binding.

An elegant European-style presentation box is available to protect and display your album.

The photo prints are permanently matted onto the page. I use high quality Kodak Professional Lustre paper with a lustre coating, which is an environmentally safe, water based coating that provides additional protection to your prints and adds a slightly more matte appearance for a fine art look.

The 10x10" album is custom-designed and layout-oriented. The photo prints are flush-mounted to heavy-weight six-ply (non-bendable) pages. Each album can hold up to 25 pages (50 sides).

The gorgeous fabrics are Japanese bookbinding fabric and silk ribbon. There are multiple colors from which to choose.

Past couples, if you're interested in purchasing one of these beauties, shoot me a note: mel [at] melissatuckphoto [dot] com. Future couples, you can also get it on the fun. I'm offering a 10% discount on Cypress Albums at the time of signing a contract. : )
