This blog post has been a long time coming. I’ve been wanting to talk about Albums for a while now, but between moving and all the incredible sessions lately… I finally have time to talk about it.
I’ve created wedding albums for clients and even sample albums for myself to show potential clients. I LOVE the way wedding photos translate in albums. They tell a story… Your story… a story that is way better told in an album than on Facebook or even in a folder lost somewhere on your computer. Which reminds me… PLEASE remember to back up your photos! It is so so important!
Back to albums…
I have to be honest and say that when I was getting married, I wasn’t really thinking about Albums. They weren’t in my budget necessarily and so I never even really considered it. Albums are pricey, but they’re worth it. It wasn’t until after our wedding that I wanted one. I wanted one for our future family. A family heirloom.
I saw a photo one day on Facebook that had trickled down from Yanman Photographers. They stated…
“What if this was the only way to view your Grandparents wedding photos?”
Seriously… What if?!
My parents have a wedding album but I know for my grandparents, they only had one photo of them together on their wedding day. And it was with their pastor 🙂 Not even together… alone.
Photos were so important for me and I loved that Andrea Crosswhite was there to capture our day. She did such an amazing job and I treasure them! However – I don’t want to pass around a DVD to my children or grandchildren… even still… DVDs/CDs may not even be a viable medium anymore… like Floppy Discs are to us now.
I believe you deserve to have your photos displayed in an album. You most likely put many many days and hours into planning your wedding. For me, a whole year. You worked hard and I believe you deserve to have your wedding displayed in an album… to tell your story.
