When I am in my 80s, here is what I wish for: I want a note from a past client’s grandchild. I want a note about looking through their grandparents wedding album for the 100th time and suddenly realizing that their grandparents had been young adults, had been vulnerable and loving and silly. That they could see the joy in their great grandparents faces, laugh at the dancing, enjoy the style, feel the fun.
That is what I think about every time I deliver a wedding album – its purpose is not the be beautiful now (though they are that), but to be a time capsule for future generations. A time capsule we enjoy in our lifetimes.
Not to put pressure on my clients. I hope your album sits on table and enjoys its life with you – being touched and leafed through and loved. Those future generations might be your great neices, or not related at all. Enjoying the memories and sharing them is the key.
For Brittany and David’s wedding album, they chose this gorgeous tan leather with their names embossed in the cover. Video and images below.
Printing photos and having them with you is part of remembering and sharing our memories. A quality wedding album will ensure that your photos last for future generations, so that they can see how much fun you had. That is why I only offer Flush Mount style albums – the images are developed and printed deep into the paper to give these albums a long life.
