I have noticed lately that many couples feel that receiving their wedding images on a disc or sub key is good enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that couples get a variation and selection of the images of their magical day in a digital format. Nowadays, couple receive many more images then their parents or grandparents. The issue I that most couples get their images and can’t make a selection of the top 40-60 images to build a wedding album or time is just not present to actually sit down and create this masterpiece.
Their is one product that never has become obsolete after more then a century. The wedding album still conserves memories and love that can transpire through generation of our family. Have you ever look at your parents wedding album? How do you feel thinking about the times you looked at it? Do you treasure those memories? Did you receive their heirloom has a gift?
My dad having past away last June, I find my parents wedding album an important heirloom that I have received in my life. It will allow me to show my father to my 1 month old daughter. How would this be possible without the album since that’s the only wedding souvenirs that’s left from their wedding day?
Professional photographs, printed by a professional lab. Those are the photos you find in an attic. It could be a 100-year-old photo, but it still looks good. Because back then, the paper photographs were printed on was high quality and developing them was an art form. There were no machines that spit out pictures onto cheap paper with inexpensive ink. Those prints aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. They will fade. They will curl. They will not stand the test of time. Not even close.
You wedding photographs are worth much more than such a faith. You actually hired a full time professional wedding photographer since you cared enough to capture the moments and the story of your unique wedding day. Have a professional wedding album designs and crafted to conserve the love, the memories and the good time that you will cherish for decades. Just think about the movie The Notebook. A great story that is remembered through a book, would you like to relive your magical wedding day in such a way with your grandchildren?
When purchasing a hand crafted album through your professional wedding photographer, you can see, touch and feel samples to insure that they are worth every penny. I know they are expensive but for a good reason. They are hand stitched, hand crafted and made uniquely for you.
But of all the things you spend money on for your wedding, your wedding photographs are the only thing that will increase in value over time. As the years pass, you’ll be more and more glad that you have them. Especially, if you can experience looking through them by flipping through a gorgeous custom-designed album.
Don’t just do it for you. Do it for your children. Do it for your grandchildren. Because when they root around in your attic in 2050, they will have no idea what do with a USB key anymore than they would with a CD or a VHS.
Here’s an example of a wedding album I have just received and after you can see a preview of a wedding album I have designed.
