All weddings are unique. Countless hours go into the preparation and planning of one of the most important days of your life. For many, as soon as the confetti is thrown and you are whisked away in the car, the wedding ends there. But it doesn’t have to.
"The reason why my husband and I both wanted an album was because it would be something that we can keep forever and be able to just have on the coffee table and look at it whenever we wanted! There's nothing like having something in hard copy to look at instead of on your computer it was the best we made, having an album made!" Stephanie Hanger
Here's one way to look at it: you've scrimped and saved to pay for your wedding and planned each meticulous detail. Your wedding photos or wedding video are the only tangible way you can revisit the day you worked so hard to create. Now you need to ask yourself, "how often will I really hunt down that USB, plug it in and look through them on my computer screen?"
Investing in an exceptional and timeless wedding album is essential. A premium quality wedding album is tangible and offers so much more sentimental value than modern digital photos. Below are three reasons that every couple should invest in a wedding photographer who offers a wedding photo album.
1. An album captures the little details
A newlywed couple often describes their wedding day as the fastest of their life. There are so many people to talk to, formalities and - of course – dancing! Receiving a printed wedding album is the perfect gift for you to physically hold and flick through the beautiful memories and let your mind drift back to the day.
2. It’s hard to trust digital photos
Laptops break and so do USBs, CDs and hard drives. As time passes and technology changes, it is easy to lose the collection of images from your special day. Photographs, when looked after, last forever.
3. Wedding albums show ALL the photos
Digital photos are easy. Often a wedding photographer who provides the images digitally will give you a USB, with many images on it. Often the images are double ups or repetitions of the same image from different angles. An excellent wedding photographer will select and edit all the perfect images that capture every aspect of the day and bind them up beautifully. It is far easier for friends and family who want to see all the photos to flick through an elegant album than to scroll through countless repetitive images on a screen.
Many people opt for digital images on the assumption that they will print them themselves to create a beautiful wedding album. Who needs another thing to add to the to-do list? An excellent professional wedding photographer will always offer you a beautifully bound book of memories that you can keep forever to remember your special day.
