There is something to be said for tangibility.
There is something to be said for having something concrete that you can hold in your hands, that can be passed around at a family dinner. Photographs bring people together, but on a screen as beautiful as they are they are skimmed through so quickly it is hard to appreciate a good image from a bad one.
And that is why wedding albums are so important.
They take you away from the online world we live in, and place you back in a moment where all your friends and family were in the same room. No screens, no distractions, no Facebook quality loss. They will be passed down through generations and opened again on anniversaries. Disks and usb sticks don’t manifest longevity the way the linen covered, hard cover bound, archival paper quality does.
Albums bring the story of a wedding together from start to finish, like a slideshow they are a curated version of the day. They take hours to design and manufacture but the wedding day itself has taken the same amount of effort in preparation. It is lived for often a mere twelve hours, and my hope is that by offering quality albums to my couples the day will be revisited long into the future.
