I am a firm believer that photographs are meant to be printed!! Nothing makes me happier than to know that my clients have a beautiful heirloom piece of art that they’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Let’s back up a bit, because I totally understand the importance of digital files. Digital files are a MUST for the majority of my couples. I present all finished galleries in a gorgeous online interface that can be accessed on any device. You can download images directly to your phone/computer or showcase them in an instant on social media, which makes sharing your favorite images with loved ones an absolute breeze.
Having your digital files is great, given our social-media-driven, digital world. But, where will those photos be in a few years? Sad to say, but they’ll likely be buried on a hard drive, or worse yet, lost on a computer that crashed.
This is why I recommend albums to all my clients. No doubt, albums are a huge investment. Albums are custom designed, telling your unique story using your unique images. No two albums look alike. You can be involved in the revision process, to ensure your story is perfectly presented using all your favorite images. Your album will be printed on the finest, archival quality photo paper; images that will last a lifetime. The prints are adhered to matte board for rigidity and longevity, and your album is constructed by skilled artisans, by hand, using the materials you select and all the custom options you chose. The level of craftsmanship, for a product made right here in the USA, for an art piece that will last a lifetime, is well worth the price.
Furthermore, albums are really a gift for you. It’s an art piece for your home together. Holding an image in your hands and looking at a print is completely different than glancing at it online. An album is something you can reminisce over every anniversary. Something you can share with future generations. Something you’ll still have when you’re 84 and still celebrating your love and the life you’ve built.
Michelle & Conner chose a classic champagne silk 10×10 album for themselves and 2, smaller 8×8 albums for their parents. I’m so happy they’ll have these gorgeous, timeless albums to remember their day!
