Isaac and I always say that we would grab Frodo and Zeek, our laptops, and our photo books + wedding album if our house was on fire!  Could you always build another wedding album if something happened to this book? Yes. However, there is something special about creating your first heirloom.  Having digital images is wonderful, but having a printed keepsake that tells a visual story of our wedding day is priceless! If you haven’t already invested in a Legacy Album of your own, you can always come back to me at any time and order one.  I am not a photography business that pushes product sales at all.  However, these albums are important not just for my couples to have… but for their grandchildren to enjoy as well.

Here are my top three reasons why I believe every couple should invest in their wedding album:

Wedding Albums are Like a Storybook

When browsing through the pages of a photo album, your friends and family can enjoy the story of your wedding day. Framed photos and snapshots may only provide a glimpse into one specific moment. However, an album can be arranged to provide a complete view of your special day from beginning to end. Because your wedding day likely had a storybook feeling, an album is a perfect way to capture this effect by arranging your photos in a way that carries your viewer through each special moment.

**Note: When you order an heirloom album through Tina Ricketts Photography, we custom design your album and do all the heavy lifting for you so that you don’t have to find time to sit down and go through hundreds of images and select which should go on which page – because what newly married couple has time to do that??

Digital Copies Can Be Lost

As much as we trust electronic media for our important documents and entertainment, it is important to remember that USBs and backup files can be lost or deleted. Not to mention, they can be hard to retrieve at a moment’s notice. If your wedding photos are stored on a USB, make the effort to have them printed and compiled into a traditional wedding album or whichever product(s) is less likely to ever be lost. I highly recommend using a professional printing company if you are not purchasing your album through your wedding photographer, I’m sure they can recommend a good quality photo printing company.

Your memories will fade, but your album is a time-machine.

Part of a photographer’s job is to document every single detail so you can keep a reminder of all those details – all the time, energy, and money, spent on making your day perfect. Your professional wedding album is that record! It’s easily accessible (in your home) and tangible, something you can pick up at a moment’s notice and reminisce. Plus, albums are often made with archival-quality prints which beat pixels on a screen any day, all day!

Final Note:

Getting your wedding photos after a much-anticipated wait is such a rewarding and beautiful time. You spent so much time and energy planning out a beautiful day, that it’s only fair for your photos to be displayed as beautifully as possible. Whether you decide to just have one copy for yourself, or multiple copies to give as gifts for family, your special day can be captured and shown off in the most beautiful and sentimental way possible. For generations to come, you will be able to remember and celebrate the love and joy of your magical day, and what could be better than that?

With Love,
