Five Reasons Why You Need a Photo Album April 7, 2021/ Posted By : Kristen/ 0 comments / Under : Engagement, Family, Photography, Portraits, Wedding There are SO many reasons why you need a wedding photo album. How can I keep it to five? Well, I will give you the five MOST IMPORTANT reasons. As you know from my work, I am a big fan of film photography and tangible photography products. I’m a big believer that photos are meant to be held and admired, really cherished. Despite all the obvious bonuses of digital photography, sometimes we just don’t appreciate the photos! We have hundreds and scroll through them all once or twice, then put it in a folder hidden away on your desktop never to be seen again.When you work with me, you get an album in all of the wedding packages. This means that you will ALWAYS get a tangible product to share and hold for the rest of your LIVES. Isn’t that crazy??Oops I think I used one of my reasons. Ok let’s just get started! 1. SHARE AND HOLD YOUR PHOTOS FOREVERI kind of went over this above already, but it deserves repeating: PHOTOS SHOULD BE PRINTED. They can be printed in so many different ways: prints! albums! etc! But the magic of the wedding album is that it is finely crafted, beautifully designed, intentionally curated by me, and it creates a truly long-lasting item you can go over with your family and your spouse over and over again! It truly stands the test of time. 2. THEY MAKE PERFECT GIFTSDid you know you can order additional albums? I make parent albums, which can be exact replicas of your wedding album or they can be smaller versions. These can be gifted to ANY family or friend member! It makes the best Christmas gift and honestly it will probably make the giftee cry with joy, honour, etc etc. 3. QUALITY PHOTOS? QUALITY PRODUCTS!It’s a shame to invest in a wonderful photographer, have a great photography experience, fall in love with all your photos, and then do nothing with them! Luckily, a well-crated heirloom wedding album gives the photos the platform they deserve! 4. I AM HERE TO HELP!Wedding albums are professionally curated, designed, and printed. So stylish! Sometimes digital photo numbers can be overwhelming, and if you’re hesitant about wedding albums because of the number of photos you’d have to sort through: DON’T BE! I am here to help! I design it for you and you can give feedback on the design, or you can give me moments and feelings that were important and we can work together to find the best photos for the album. Photo overwhelm should NOT stop us from making something beautiful! 5. THE ALBUM IS AN HEIRLOOMThese are not albums you just shove in a shelf and forget. These are meant to be opened again and again, forever. One of my greatest joys growing up was going through all my parents’ photo albums, their wedding albums, and all the old family photos printed over the last several centuries. The history of photos is MAGIC! And yours can be history-making too! If you're interested in talking wedding albums, hit me up or check out my album webpage!
