Photo Opportunities

How to make the most of your wedding portraits.


COMMISSION A PAIR OF MODERN-DAY CAMEOS
Ask your photographer to shoot you and your groom separately in profile, then take the photos to Jonathan Adler (212-941-8950) to commission portraits by New York-based artist Carter Kustera ( carterkustera.com; $1,300 a pair, including frame).

TURN YOUR PHOTOS INTO FASHION SKETCHES
Send wedding-day photographs to VeryWendy Designs (212-252-9972; verywendy.com ). She'll transform them into the kind of sketches you'd expect from a brilliant fashion designer. Most elegant is the special blend of black ink and watercolor that gives her whimsical style more serious art cred (from $500).

CONVERT YOUR WEDDING PICTURES INTO OFFICIAL U.S. POSTAGE
Stamps.com shrinks digital photos to 1.1 inches by 1.1 inches and turns them into USPS-approved stamps (from $17.99 for twenty).

COMMISSION ORIGINAL ART FROM A 'NEW YORKER' CARTOONIST.
Call the Cartoon Bank (914-478-5527; cartoonbank.com ; ask for cartoon specialist Patrick Seaton) for a list of artists who can transform your photographs into a one-of-a-kind comic strip (from $3,500 for an 8.5-by-11 black-and-white artwork).

CREATE A COFFEE-TABLE PHOTO BOOK.
Many photographers offer this option. Brett Matthews (212-337-0111; brettmatthews.com ) provides the service for couples whether he took their wedding pictures or not (from $1,100 for 24 double-sided pages). On a budget? Order an iPhoto book from apple.com (from $29.99 for ten double-sided pages). For something much more upscale, call on Hammond Editions (212-517-8091). A meticulous fine-arts team creates hand-sewn books printed on archival paper that will last up to 200 years (from $25,000).
