Planning a wedding is a huge task. If you choose great vendors, it hopefully should be a fun experience instead of a stressful one. But once the wedding is over, it can be tempting to just share your favorite images from the day on Instagram and call it a day. But we are huge believers in not letting your images and memories live on your computer. Your wedding day is probably one of the most important of your life, and your photos should be preserved for future generations to relive.
Who else loves looking through their parents’ wedding album? Lauren literally just looked through her parents’ album last week, and it was so special to look through it with them and hear them relive the day through their photos.
So here’s 4 reasons why we think you should invest in an heirloom wedding album.
1. They’re simply beautiful
These albums are fire. Seriously. They’re just so, so nice. We wouldn’t offer them if they weren’t. We checked out so many different print labs and when we saw these, we knew we had to have them. They come in a variety of sizes, and covers, but our favorite is the Pelle distressed leather, which you can see in the photos below.
Everything is made here in America and our lab uses 100% natural, Italian leather, known for its texture, strength and durability. We also make the design process super easy because we do it all for you. Unlike some album design experiences where you’re bombarded with choices, from choosing the paper finish to deciding on paper thickness, we’ve chosen the highest quality options for you. Our lab also warranties their albums for life against any manufacturer defects, so we can work with you to replace or repair your album if an issue comes up.
Whether you choose to leave the album protected inside the walnut box or display it on its own, it will be a statement piece and conversation starter in any room. Perfect for those date nights at home when you’re feeling sentimental and want to relive your wedding day together all over again.
2. Your photos were made to be printed
We live in a digital age. That’s for sure. Everyone is concerned with what to post on Tik Tok or Instagram, or whatever the next rising social app is. But there’s something timeless, nostalgic and romantic about being able to hold your photos in your hands. And while your photos look great in a digital format, they were made to be printed.
It’s all too easy to look at your wedding gallery a few times and then lose the link and forget about them. Don’t let your photos live on your computer. There are details and emotions that can only be experienced by having your images printed in an album that you just can’t get online. There’s just something about feeling the weight of the album in your hands, flipping through the pages and feeling the texture as you run your finger across the page where your mother-son or father-daughter dance is.
We’re romantics, can’t you tell?
3. Preserve your memories
Depending on the package you booked with us, we’ll preserve your images from 90 days up to 1 year. We always recommend downloading the hi-res version of your entire gallery and saving it in multiple places, because let’s face it: Computers die and files get lost, and we never want you to lose these moments, but having a physical album means they’ll never be lost or leave you relying on technology.
4. They’re awesome gifts
Whether it’s for grandpa and grandma or mom and dad, these albums make the perfect special gift. We can duplicate your design or we can create a custom album just for them. The awesome part is that for duplicate designs, you save 10% percent if you order 2 or more albums.
We guarantee this is a gift they will love and cherish forever.
Note: We offer these albums for all of our clients as either an add-on or included in our top package.
