While we live in the golden age of technology, wedding albums are still very popular and in my opinion, extremely important. You may be thinking that albums are really expensive and not worth it and I couldn’t blame you one bit! I had that same reaction as a bride. Or, maybe you’re thinking – is this something I really need? Why can’t I just print my photos or share them on my Facebook with friends and family? Today I’m sharing some reasons why you should invest in a wedding album.
Digital Files Are Forever Changing
Gone are the times of floppy discs and burning images onto CDs. While we have the luxury of USB devices today, who knows what the future will hold? More and more devices are being sold without USB slots and just like tapes and cassettes, technology is forever changing and these types of storage may not be as easily accessible as they are today. Digital photos are not something tangible like a gorgeous keepsake album.
Albums Are Heirloom Legacy’s
When you are sharing memories years from today with your children and grandchildren, they may not want to wait for you to pull out your old USB or computer with your wedding images or love story. Wedding photos are apart of your story and legacy and are meant to be shared with generations to come. Albums are easily accessible and because they are dust, fingerprint and smear proof, they will withstand years and years of love.
You Already Invested In A Wedding Photography
If you’ve hired a professional wedding photographer, you’ve already spent thousands of dollars for your memories to be captured. Why let these photos sit on your phone or hard drive? In my opinion, there is nothing better than seeing your photos printed for you to admire. Plus, your wedding photos deserve the attention!
Wedding albums from your photographer are printed by labs that use the finest materials and highest quality to ensure that your album will withstand the test of time. These albums lay flat, are full of heavy material and super thick pages. They come with a dust jacket and are able to be customized by color, size, cover and layout!
Wedding albums are definitely a big investment. But, it is one that you will not regret. There is nothing quite like holding an album in your hand. I hope this information was helpful for you and your wedding day. Even if your wedding day is already over, you can always save money to invest in an album later. Feel free to email me if you have any questions regarding the album process. If you are interested in seeing a wedding album, I always bring them to my consultations. Contact me today to get started!
