Why are wedding albums so important?
Vancouver Wedding Albums
We all prefer to choose a photographer who lets you have the photographs on a CD so you can print away to your heart’s content and have a print of all the photographs, BUT a high-quality album is so essential. Why? Well we shall tell you…
You want a wedding album that you can hand down to your grandkids one day and it still looks just as good as the day you gotten it.
But let us ask you a simple question. If your home was on fire, what you would you save? What is most dear to your heart?
For us, we would want to make sure our family is safe, and then we would want to save all of our pictures because those we know are irreplaceable. Everything else can be replaced, computers included, but the pictures and memories attached to them we hold dear and can’t be re-purchased at any store. We bet that a lot of you feel the same way.
Now, we want to ask you another related question. Precisely out of all the pictures you have accumulated on your computer…. How frequently do you see them again? How many times do you recreate the emotions you experienced by creating those photos?
Lastly, we want you to consider something. Times are changing and technology grows and gets cooler and more awesome daily! Think about 10-20 years ago before iPods and even before CDs and DVD were offered everywhere. What happened to your VHS tapes and cassette tapes? We threw them out because we don’t use them any longer, and we acquired newer, smaller, and better things. Discs won’t be there forever, they get lost, scratched, broken and with technology moving as fast as it is who is to say how long we will be able to use them for?
Well, what happens when that DVD you bought of your wedding pictures or your child’s newborn photographs when DVDs are no longer the standard way to store pictures? What will you do many years down the road when your grandkids want to see pictures of their grandparent’s wedding day? Are you going to pull up an antique computer to show them? Are you going to keep backing up the photographs to a new apparatus every time one is announced? Wouldn’t it be comfortable to pull out your wedding album and show them and be able to articulate your story to them over a cup of tea?
Another thing we are guilty of ourselves was getting our wedding photographs and doing absolutely nothing with them. We printed a few but I don’t think we even put them on Facebook… OOPS! But getting big prints done is something that we plan to do when we move into our new house. We now live in a digital age where it is so easy to just let our photos live on our phones or on Instagram. Let’s face it. Couples invest thousands of dollars for somebody to capture their wedding and some of them just use the pictures as the wallpapers on their computer. This is not something we want for our clienteles. We want you to have something that you can look back on and recreate your whole wedding day.
An album is what you will look at time and time again; you will get the photo album out and show relatives and friends. You will get it out on anniversaries and look through the pages; you will show your children and in years to come you will show your grandchildren. Looking at the images via disc on your computer or iPad just isn’t the same.
You hired a professional photographer to take the photos so why not hire a professional to create the perfect album of your wedding? We will be able to print out the images into a beautiful book at a high quality that will do the original photo justice.
