We just got our new linen wedding album sample, so I thought I would share it with you and tell you all about why we make wedding albums. If the words “wedding album” bring to mind images of dusty, old books filled with prints falling out of their mattes, think again. Wedding albums have come a long way!
Yes, we provide digital files. But there's more to it.
We know “digital files” are all the rage right now, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t remind our couples that digital files have a limited life. For every new camera with additional megapixels and all the technical computer and software improvements that I don't even pretend to understand, digital pictures actually age. If you open a digital image from ten years ago you'll see what I mean.
If candid wedding photography is what you gravitate towards, don’t forget to think about how to preserve those pictures for the future.
As technology quickly changes, the best way to preserve images is to print them
Albums are a great way to do so for weddings. And here’s why...
Unlike a portrait session, most images from a wedding day are not stand-alone images. You will have lots of great candid pictures from your entire wedding day, but the ones mostly likely to be printed and displayed are portraits. In an album format, multiple pictures come together to recreate moments from your wedding day.
If you are the kind of person who loves candid pictures of your family and friends an album might be a great keepsake for you.
We also include portraits in the album, so I couldn't resist the opportunity to show you this full spread portrait. You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this is a 12x12 album. That means this picture is nearly 24 inches! And you thought an 8x10 was a big print. I shall teach you the error of that idea!

I'll be bringing this baby along to our consultations from now on. Seeing an album in person makes all the difference!
