The memory mates are what I like to call the heart of our sports photography offerings. As you can see, It’s an individual player photo along with a team photo. But our memory mates are much more than just photos.
Old style memory mates were nothing more than a cardboard mount with the child’s photo and group photo placed inside. That style has been outdated now for several years and we have not used it for almost ten years. With digital technology, we are able to do so much more with modern memory mates.
As you can see, the background of the memory mate can be a striking graphic. We can also add in the player’s name, uniform number, team name and the year.
Plus, we change out the graphic theme each season. This offers a nice variety for those who have had children playing for several years. Many sports photographers use the same graphics and backgrounds from year to year. It’s just easier that way. Easier, maybe but look at a wall of their images and you can’t tell one year from the next.
We make our prints in a glossy metallic finish. This is a striking difference from the everyday luster finish that many others provide.
All in all, the memory mate is a lasting memory for parents and children. A memory mate from Roy Dressel photography is truly memorable. Parents and players can look back on their years and not only see their child grow but also have memories of friends, teammates, and coaches.
