You already know that I’m a HUGE fan of making sure your photos end up as artwork and not something that you chose to invest big money into simply for a social media post. While I absolutely love prints + canvases, there’s something so special about a custom wedding album.
That is why I’m sharing 5 reasons why investing in a wedding album is so important.
- tells your story
- passed down through generations
- technology changes
- personalized to fit your vibe
- tangible way to look at wedding photos
Keep with me and allow me to elaborate…
1. TELLS YOUR STORY
My number one goal for wedding clients is “tell your story and tell is WELL”. Having your fave wedding images printed in an album is like having a little storybook of your special day. From the morning mimosas to finishing touches of hair and makeup, lacing up your gown to adjusting your bow tie, first looks to “I do”, toasts to cake, and dancing the night away to sparkler exit… your wedding showcases the story that made your wedding day uniquely “YOU”.
2. PASSED DOWN THROUGH GENERATIONS
If you’re anything like me, you always LOVED looking at your parents + grandparents wedding albums. Growing up, it was one of my favorite things to do. I tell every wedding client “I want your kids + grandkids to look at these photos one day and feel like they were there, in the moment, not standing on the outside looking in. That is why I find it so important to shoot the real, authentic moments as they unfold”. Having a wedding album allows future generations to look through the moments of your wedding day.
3. TECHNOLOGY CHANGES
How did your grandparents receive their wedding photos? How were your parent’s wedding photos delivered? Heck, how do your friends, who were married 10 years ago, store their photos? We’ve gone from film negatives, floppy disks, compact disks, flash drives, to online galleries, but who knows where we’ll be in 15 years, right?!? If you asked me to see ALL of my grandparent’s or parent’s wedding photos, I wouldn’t know where to find them, but I DO know I could look through their album in a heartbeat. To me, this alone is worth having an album.
4. PERSONALIZED TO FIT YOUR VIBE
You put so much thought into planning what your unique wedding day will look and feel like, and your album should be one-of-a-kind as well. I think your wedding album should portray exactly that from beginning to end, which includes the cover. The company I trust to print my client’s albums offers so many high-quality materials in HUNDREDS of colors. When you have the opportunity to choose from leather, velvet, book cloth, eco-leather and more, you know you’ll have a book that truly matches the vibe of your wedding. Don’t even get me started on the custom designed debossing that we can create and imprint on the front. The possibilities are endless and your book will be SO. YOU.
5. TANGIBLE WAY TO LOOK AT WEDDING PHOTOS
You are much more likely to look through your wedding photos in a book as opposed to an online gallery. Even more so, you are more likely to show friends/family your images, when they visit, when they’re in print. Scrolling through an online gallery is great, but being able to share the story of your wedding day by flipping through the physical pages of an album… nothing beats that!
