Should I Invest in a Wedding Album?

Let’s get real: Your wedding day will go by like a blur. All the months of planning, the perfectly curated guest list, the florals, food, and beautiful table scape, the vendors you’ve so thoughtfully selected to make this dream a reality – they all come and go within one day.

And it’s not the first time you’ve heard that. You know the only thing that lasts is the wedding photos, which is why you’ve carefully selected a photographer you love and trust to capture this important day. You wait with anxious anticipation for your full gallery to be returned in all its beauty. It finally gets delivered and your photos are everything you hoped for and more! They make their big debut on Instagram and Facebook, you print a couple for your home…and then you get busy, and they sit on your desktop and camera roll to dig up again on next year’s anniversary. 

While sad, this is the reality for so many people in today’s digital age, but it shouldn’t be. Why? Wedding photography is about legacy and your wedding memories deserve to live tangibly and be enjoyed outside of a screen for years to come. 

Here’s 4 reasons you should invest in an Heirloom Wedding Album:

  1. You will be able to relive your wedding day in a tangible way with your partner and have a permanent reminder of that day and your love for each other. Having a physical album in your home gives you the chance to flip through and remember the story of the day so much more easily and often together, which is priceless. It’s a reminder of the love you share. One that you can see every single day. 

  1. You will have a family heirloom to pass down. One of my favorite memories as a kid was getting to sit with my mother and grandmother and flip through their beautifully preserved wedding photos and relive their wedding days with them. Having those albums to share with me made it a memorable experience – one that transported me back in time and helped me feel like I was there more than any single photo could. It’s an heirloom that will speak to your unique love story long after you are no longer on this earth. 

  1. A quality wedding album will stand the test of time and preserve the beauty of your wedding photos in print. With an heirloom wedding album like the ones I offer to my clients, you’re getting top-of-the-line quality that will guarantee it’s going to last years and have the opportunity to be passed on for generations.  It pains me to see people invest thousands and thousands of dollars into their wedding photography and then print their wedding photos through a low quality print store, that butchers the quality and colors of their wedding photographs. When you invest in an heirloom album, the quality, detail, colors and tones will all be maintained as beautifully as your photographer captured them. 

  1. They are a work of art and one you can customize to feel like you. Using my artistic eye and visual storytelling skills, I will design the first draft of your album in a way that tells the story of your day beautifully. From there, my clients have unlimited revisions to swap photos, change layouts, add spreads, and customize the cover, embossing and more until their wedding album is perfect and feels like an accurate representation is their day and the love they share.

Whether your wedding was 4 years ago or 2 weeks ago, it’s not too late! If you’re interested in purchasing an heirloom wedding album, send me an email and I will be happy to walk you through the process.

  1. […] After your gallery has been delivered, if the package you booked includes an heirloom album or if you’d like to order one at this point, I’ll send you the initial design and we’ll start the revisions for the design process. Once you’re happy with it, I’ll order it and it’ll be delivered to you. You can read more about the value of physical albums and the process in my blog post here. […]
