I don’t like wedding albums … I ADORE wedding albums! I passionately believe in them and the value they provide to my clients.
If you’re engaged and are thinking whether a wedding album is worth the money, this is for you!!
We’re living in a digital age, and that especially applies to photos. We take and store more photographs than any generation before us, but we tend to print never print anything. We keep everything in our phones, how many of those have you printed and displayed? A wedding album takes your photos out of the digital world and puts them right onto your coffee table or bookshelf. An album is what you will look at time and time again, you will get the album out and show relatives and friends. You will get it out on anniversaries and look through the pages, you will show your children and in years to come you will show your grand children. Looking at the images on your computer or an ipad just isn’t the same. An album makes your wedding photos available and present in your everyday.
Also, a wedding album offers high quality of construction and design. A professional wedding album is a high quality artifact crafted by professional printers and binders, who usually offer their services exclusively to professional photographers. The ones that I use for my clients are Millers and Red Tree Albums — both high quality options. But whatever company your photographer uses, they have to choose a company that will provide you with an excellent quality album that will last a long time.
If you decide to DIY your photo album, take in consideration that a wedding album is not just a bunch of pictures assembled into a book – it’s designed to show your wedding story in a compelling manner, customized just for you.
I feel so strongly that wedding albums are valuable for every couple. When things get rough, as they do in this life, your wedding album will be a reminder of your love and the value of your relationship.
You can share your story with future generations. I personally like to look through my grandma’s albums. I remember how we used to talk about the people, the details, the emotions. So many stories she shared with me. I think a wedding album not only preserves the memories of your love for you and your spouse, but for your family both current and future!
Make it your first family heirloom!! enjoy it with your children and grandchildren. That’s what I love about wedding albums.
