My mother has somehow made dark, wood paneled walls in her living room look good. It’s one of the few things she hasn’t changed in the nearly 22 years that she has owned the house. That and the floor to ceiling, built in bookshelves that have been filled full over the years of random books and odds and in trinkets. At first glance you might notice a book about ghosts or assorted travel guides. You probably wouldn’t notice the bottom two shelves on the right hand side. The ones mostly hidden behind the arm of the couch. But it’s there. And it’s full of the most precious books of all. They are all different sizes. They don’t match. Some are so worn that they start to fall apart as soon as you touch them. But they are my history, my childhood. My family’s story in black, white and color. Photo albums.
I don’t think it’s news to anyone that we live in a digital world. If you are anything like most people, your photos probably live on either social media or your cell phone. When was the last time you printed a photo or even considered putting together a photo album? Months? Years? That’s OK, you certainly are not alone but it’s what I want to talk about today. One of the things I’m personally most excited about, post wedding, is choosing the photos that will go in the heirloom wedding album from our photographer. I can’t wait to see them in print, physically hold them in my hands and flip through them again and again, on good days and bad. Because it’s my story, it’s our story and it’s important.
So brides, consider purchasing a fine art wedding album from your photographer. I am so incredibly excited to be able to offer these products beginning this year to my couples and their families. These products tell your story with incredible quality that will stand the test of time. Something beautiful and tangible to hold from the most special day of your life. Because it’s not your old lab partner from freshman year biology that you have stayed Facebook friends with who really cares about your wedding photos, although I’m sure she is distantly happy for you as she scrolls through her news feed. It’s your family, as they sit in your living room while you host the first holiday meal as newlyweds, flipping through your brand new album. It’s your future daughter as you show her your wedding dress for the first time and tell her all about your perfect day. It’s her children one day, as they slowly turn those worn pages and take in the legacy of love that has been passed on to them. That’s why it matters. It tells your story. So let’s talk about a custom heirloom album to stunningly display the photos from your wedding day! It’s a priceless treasure and it’s worth it!
Scroll through the photos below for a sample of what I am now offering. The album featured in this blog is the ivory linen cover option. Custom text and cover options will be available for each order. Feel free to reach out for more information and ordering options.
