Why should you invest in a quality album after your wedding? Seriously- why? You know you’re going to plaster all of your photos on Facebook and Instagram. I mean more people will see your wedding photos that way than in a book that sits on your coffee table, right? But hey, do you remember that thing called MySpace? Barely, right? That’s what I thought. You know, I’ve also had clients come back to me after a couple of years and ask me for their wedding photos because their computer hard drive crashed. Now, they’re frantically trying to get those images back. Technology is fickle ya’ll. And it’s always changing. You’ve made the investment in a photographer for your wedding. Now it’s time to make sure those photos will be enjoyed as much as possible for generations to come.
Folks, I’m here to tell ya- you need a quality wedding album.
An album is the last thing you get to customize and make as unique as your love story and your wedding day. Covers come in leather and fabric with a variety of color options. This particular one is a vintage charcoal leather. You can choose your favorite photos to be featured in it and how they’re arranged. You can make one photo take up an entire spread (2 pages) or put multiple images on one page to show a sequence of events. Each album comes with a minimum of 30 pages, but you can always add on more.
A wedding album is the perfect way to ensure your photos are enjoying for years to come. They showcase your big day from beginning to end. There are so many moments on your wedding day from the time you start getting ready.
The colors in these albums are INCREDIBLE. Actually, they’re exactly the same as the colors in your photos. That’s because I can calibrate my computer screen to match the professional photo lab that will be printing your book. Another reason to invest in a professional album.
Okay, so you may be thinking I have a point now. But, doesn’t Costco and Shutterfly offer inexpensive albums? Why not just go there? Surely the turnaround to have your album in your hands will be faster. But have you ever heard the saying, “You get what you pay for?” Yeah, that rings true in this case. Consumer grade albums (like Costco, Shutterfly, and Zno) will start to fall apart long before a professional grade album even begins to show wear. These albums consist of thick, unbending pages that lay flat when open. Check out this spread where the crease is virtually invisible. The quality is truly unmatched.
Each spread has the potential to be whatever you want! Maybe just a couple photos of a gorgeous bride…
Or a full page of the ones you chose to stand next to you. Or your favorite portraits of you and your love #JustMarried.
Another awesome reason to add to the list of awesome reasons to invest in a quality wedding album? All of those photos of your decor! You know you aren’t going to hang those on the wall. You (and your vendors) spent SO MUCH TIME planning (and probably spent a good amount of money too) on your cake, your place settings, your florals, your center pieces, etc. And it was all gone after one day. Or was it? Hey, not if you have a pretty little spread like this to look back on for years to come.
An album is also the perfect way to make sure your fun reception memories are something you can relive over and over. These likely aren’t the kind of photos that you will hang on the wall or make the background on your phone. But they’re part of the story and I know you want to treasure them as well.
Ya’ll. This one is just my favorite.
The last thing I’m going to say is this: Professional wedding photography deserves to be printed. These moments deserve to be preserved. Your iPhone photos belong on social media. Your wedding photos belong in a professional album.
