I’ll never forget the first time I flipped through my grandparents’ wedding album. We were helping my grandma gather photos and prepare for my grandma and grandpa’s 50th anniversary party. Fifty years. Having only been on this earth for thirty, it’s hard to truly wrap my mind around such a milestone.
Page after page of beautiful black and white photos documenting the beginning of their love story filled me with such nostalgia. It’s a pretty neat thing to get to relive a time when you didn’t even exist yet. Seeing the hair, the clothes, and the much younger versions of all my loved ones made me giggle. It is interesting to see that, although so many things have changed, some many things about weddings are still very much the same.
Newly engaged couples have many decisions to make. They have to decide what they can ultimately afford and then prioritize that budget based on what they value most. Is it the dress? The food? The venue? As a future bride AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After all, once your big day is over, you will leave your reception with nothing more than a spouse, a dress you’ll never wear again, and your pictures…. that’s it!
Photography truly is an investment. If you’ve chosen to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding. I can’t think of a better way to display, share, and enjoy all those photos for years to come than with a beautiful, high-end, heirloom album. It most definitely is the perfect ending to an amazing wedding experience, and it’s a keepsake that you will be proud to show your children and grandchildren one day! Now that my grandpa is no longer with us, their wedding album is cherished even more.
The Heirloom Album
Your wedding day was a unique expression of your love story. Your album should be, too. Thick, sturdy pages wrapped in a beautiful leather or linen cover is the base for every album. However, each spread is thoughtfully designed to best tell the story of your day and showcase your beautiful photos. Didn’t purchase an album with your package? No problem! It’s never too late to purchase one a la carte. 🙂
