Picture Perfect: Choosing the Right Picture Frame for Your Favorite Photos

It seems simple enough – you have a great picture worth showing off, and you want to find a cool frame to put it in. However, choosing picture frames is more difficult than it seems. The right one will bring out a photo's best qualities, while the wrong one can alter its color and look or even drown out your picture altogether. To figure out what frame is right for your photograph, we suggest considering several things.

First, think about the style and mood of your photo. Is it a casual, spontaneous picture taken outdoors? A simple wooden frame might do the trick. If it's a quirky snapshot of you goofing off with friends, look for a funky or fun frame that helps capture the moment.

Next, consider the image's colors. If your photo has muted colors, opt for a frame with a neutral color, such as brown or tan, or one with an aged silver tone. Images with bolder colors can stand up to brighter frames -- just remember to choose a color that's already in the photo. Brightly colored photos pair also pair nicely with white picture frames or black ones with white matting. Black and white pictures look especially crisp and clean with black frames, but provided the photo has simple, clean lines, they can also look great with brightly colored frames.

Weddings deserve special consideration. Depending on the type of wedding you had, the type of picture you're framing, and your personal style preference, you could choose anything from a sleek and polished silver frame to a romantic scrolled metal frame or a simple black frame with elegant matting.

Finally, always keep balance in mind. Picture frames can be works of art. Make sure that the snapshot always remains the focus of attention. Your frame should never be too large, too busy, or too colorful for your photo. However, your photos aren't just decorative art; they're personal mementos that tell your story. With a little thought and some diligent searching, you can find the perfect frames in which to showcase them.
