When interviewing a photographer, it’s important to ask whether the prints that you order will be printed on inkjet paper OR photographic paper. Images printed on professional photographic paper have a life span that should exceed 75 years. Admittedly, great strides have been made in injet technology. When certain inks are printed on specific inkjet papers the resulting print is considered “archival” and should last for decades; but not all photographers go to the expense of using that ink / paper / printer combination. If you choose to use a photographer that is going to provide you with inkjet prints, protect yourself (and your irreplaceable memories) by having a “no fade” guarantee written into the contract that you sign.
