We all know that booking a photographer is pretty much at the top of the list when you start planning your wedding, but why is getting the photographs printed or made into an album never considered a priority?
I hear of so many people saying years down the line 'Oh we really need to get a wedding album sorted' .. so I'm writing this blog post to give you a kick up the bum and get those photos printed!!
Now this isn't a sales technique from me, although I can provide to most beautiful, high quality, personally designed albums *ahem* .. I do genuinely think that getting photographs printed regularly is so important in this digital age we live in!!
So here's a few reasons why you should consider an album of your wedding photographs:
Nobody sits down and looks through a USB
When have you ever known anyone to sit down, pop a USB into a laptop and click through hundreds of photographs as a lovely way to reminisce over their memories?? - I'm going to say never! It's just not something you ever think of doing, whereas if you have a lovely album sitting on a side table you are more than likely going to have a little flick through, especially over a cuppa when your friend pops round or years down the line when you're celebrating your anniversary with glass of wine!
They will last for years to come
If someone gave you a floppy disc of their wedding photographs from 1985 to look through you would just laugh them away.. well I'm sure I would! Now imagine finding your grandparents wedding album, how you would instantly be drawn in, looking through all of the photographs and all of the different faces, clothes and details from back then! Ofcourse having the photographs on a USB is handy now, but we don't know where technology is heading, so an album really will stand the test of time!!
Treasure your memories!
Lot's of photographers love this saying, and I feel here is where it's most important -
'After you've stored your dress, the cake has been eaten, the flowers have wilted, the guests have left, and all that's left are memories -- your photographs remain.
It's pretty much all you have left of your amazing day so why not make the most of it?Treasure those memories for all their worth, you wedding photographs are worth more than being stored in a cloud, show them off! They deserve a place on your coffee table or on the walls, being looked at all the time!
If I photographed your wedding and this has prompted you to think about getting an album then get in touch and we can start designing!!
