Imagine what it would be like if our parents wedding photos only existed on floppy disks?
When I first started shooting weddings, I decided I needed to do my research. I marched straight into my mom's den and pulled out her wedding album, I needed to understand what I was doing from the other side. I vividly remember flipping through her album and gushing over how beautiful everyone looked- my grandmother looked so young and vibrant, my grandfather looked dapper in his tux, and my mom uuuggghh, so so stunning .My heart hurt I missed my grandparents so much and it was then that I realized how valuable what I do is. Clients put months, sometimes years, into planning their wedding and what better way to put a pretty bow on the whole wedding experience then to create a gorgeous heirloom album as a keepsake from your wedding day. I offer clients full disclosure that there are plenty of consumer based album companies for them to make an album with- I do ,however, LOVE it when I get to walk clients through the album process and then get to deliver a gorgeous album to them to relive their wedding day with for years to come.
I searched high and low for an album company that felt like a good fit for the kinds of collections I work to create for clients. This album company, Pictobooks, is make in the USA, have incredible customer service and their albums are stunning. There are a bunch of cover options, you can choose one of their design options or supply your own, I offer three sizes (8x8, 10x10 and 12x12), the pages are thick and rigid- its easy to picture the chubby fingers of your future grandchildren turning these pages admiring how young and beautiful their grandparents looked on their wedding day. It feels like Christmas when the UPS man drops one of these puppies at my door. Clients have the options to invest in an album with their wedding photography or later after their wedding- some clients invest in an albums on their one year anniversary (I can speak personally how helpful it is to have someone walk you through the process, I got married in 2016 and still have yet to do my own album). Take a look at two albums that are currently on their way to clients as we speak.
