Let me start by screaming politely into the google void…
WEDDING ALBUMS ARE IMPORTANT!!!
When I think back to what I remember from my childhood, my teenage years and now my own kids growing up, it’s always directly related to what was photographed. That’s just how it works, and I know I’m not alone.
I specifically remember getting crazy air on my bike from jumping off a street-ramp I made – but wearing a cast for the rest of the summer… because there is a photograph of it. I remember trips to the lake, plays in high school and traveling with the family to Mexico because of the photos my family and I took. Now that those memories are decades behind me, I am so damn grateful to have a photographic record of these moments.
This brings me to weddings. For years, I left it up to my clients to decide if they wanted a wedding album or not. They just want the files right? They’d totally make an album on their own right? The answer is NO… and I have all the proof. A recent poll of of past couples over 12 years showed me that less than half had even printed their wedding photos. WTF? I also asked my married friends. Nope. They hadn’t either. Are you freaking kidding me?
Bro. This is too important. Don’t let your photos just live on a computer screen or your phone. They are there to be enjoyed by you, your spouse, and everyone who loves you. It’s what you’ll flip through every anniversary and what you’ll show your friends when they come over for dinner. It’s what you’ll use to show your children where it all started. It’s for you and the future generation. Don’t let the images sit on your computer screen; they deserve better.
What about companies like Shutterfly? Hell no. Not for your wedding photos that you invest thousands of dollars into. My printers use 100-year archival paper and high-quality materials to make sure the images you see on your screen look the same when printed (because uncalibrated printers won’t do your photos justice). Trust me, you’ll want an album to reflect the quality of images you received from me.
This is why in 2020, I’m happy to announce that EVERY wedding couple will be getting an album with their wedding collection. I’m including them because wedding albums are important and the best place for your photos to live is in an album. Your album is where the story comes to life… not on a screen.
Think of a wedding album as the last leg of your wedding race:
- Plan the wedding
- Get married
- Enjoy your gallery of images
- Design your album with me!
CLIENTS: HOW IT WORKS
Two weeks after you receive your gallery, we’ll set up a Zoom date to reveal your pre-designed album. In real-time we will customize your album fully, over video or in the studio. This process takes about an hour. When we wrap up our meeting, your album goes directly to print and then straight to your door. So freaking easy.
I’m so pumped to be designing albums with my clients. It means that I’m ensuring that their photos are printed and that they have a family heirloom to pass down through the years.
