We’re excited to have Sarah of Parisi Images back for another guest post here at Paperie! This time she’s sharing her in-home gallery space with our readers.

And make sure you read ’til the end because we have new birthday party info!


div line

Parisi Images logo

The actual space is a small (barely over 100 square feet) four-season porch attached to the back of the house. It offers just enough room to do what I love—invite a bride a groom over to share in some wine or coffee and spend the evening sharing our stories. If you meet with me, you’ll soon learn that the reason I photograph weddings is because I love stories…and I want you to see and to know that your story is beautiful, just the way it is. The design of the space is driven by the the idea of generous hospitality—the table—an old farmstand table painted white—holds center stage. Just like so many kitchen tables, it’s at the table where we get to know one another, where the sharing, the giving, the receiving all take place when you come for a visit.

For other photographers out there interested in what went into creating this space, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that it all stems directly from my brand and packaging materials. One way to know if your branding is working for you is to see how well it translates into a variety of uses, purposes and spaces.

I initially planned to create a “living room” scene with a sofa and large-screen display. After a great deal of trial-and-error, I came to realize the space was just too small to provide ample room for a couch.

“Plan B” evolved into pairing down the furniture to absolute essentials—a table and seating. Using a bench on one side of the table offered enough seating for clients without filling the room with excess chairs and keeps the visual appeal of the space tight and tidy.

The room divider filled with images creates a small entryway, accented by a stool showcasing the circle emblem of my logo. (I personally love this touch!) Most of all, I intentionally filled the space with gallery wraps, large prints and sample albums, giving clients the ability to really envision ways they can make use of their own images.

Sarah Parisi’s design space has also been featured recently on Design Aglow’s “inside real studios” feature. You can also see her Paperie Boutique packaging and marketing feature here. Thanks again for sharing with the class, Sarah!

There’s a great Q&A going on over at the Paperie Facebook page:

I’m ALWAYS at a loss for packaging LARGE prints and I’ve followed you for a long time but can’t seem to find much highlighted with that…wondered if you could share or ask for people to share how they package wall prints sometime? Every idea I’ve found is really not affordable. Would love help doing that as it’s most of what I sell.

Anyone have ideas or a vendor / product recommendation? Thanks!


Please drop by and join the conversation!

button go ahead – try me!

Recently on our Facebook page, I showed photos of an Artsy Couture gallery wrap canvas “deconstruction” and included this description:

Interested in what some canvas company’s products look like “deconstructed”? I reviewed and photographed Artsy Couture 5×5 sets for a recent column and carefully took one apart. I have to say I’m even more impressed after opening it than I was before, and I didn’t think that was possible!

View deconstruction image full-size here.

The canvases are mounted and stapled to what appears to be a very thick masonite or a very thick SOLID fiber/wood board block. (Think those masonite looking clipboards we had in high school, but thicker…) The black back mat covering is thicker than a quarter, as shown. The canvas itself was very clear, crisp, vivid and true to color – and the construction inside is even more solid than out. Their website says, “The tightest corners in the industry.” I can verify that is completely correct compared to other canvases I’ve seen and owned over the years!
