Why Buy A Wedding Album? | Peter Smart Photography
Why Buy A Wedding Album? Most would agree that it’s important to have memories of your wedding day preserved and in this digital age there are several options. Some people think it’s just fine to have only a USB or a video of their wedding. These things have their place, but nothing compares to an actual physical album. Below are seven reasons why you should have a hard copy of your wedding album.
An album protects your priceless wedding pictures.
People who have all their wedding photos stored on a laptop or a USB often lose their precious memories. USBs can be broken, and all hard drives crash at some point. This can be devastating when the only copy of your wedding photos is stored there. Remember VHS? So quickly those video tapes turned into high quality DVDs and now USB. There’s always a new hot technology around the corner and you’ll have to transfer all your photos from the old to the new technology. This is time consuming and will probably be put off until it’s too late.
Put it together yourself?
What’s the benefit of paying for an expensive album from the photographer when I can buy my own empty album, order my own prints, and put it together myself? This will be very time consuming and a well made and designed photo album will be stunning and will hold up way better over time than prints. Also the quality of a photo is lost when it is not printed properly. Professional photographers will design the album and have pages printed on archival-quality paper, which is then mounted onto card.
Albums give you something to show friends and family.
It is much easier to show your wedding album than it is to fire up a computer and search for your pictures every time you want to show them to someone.
Wedding photo albums make it simpler to access your photographs.
Pictures that are stored on computers and USBs are often never looked at. Even though it may not take very long to locate them, it just seems like a big pain to a lot of people. It is also not very easy to find a specific picture on a computer and you may have to search through hundreds to find the one you are looking for. In addition, because the pictures are not in a beautiful album, they are easily forgotten about.
A wedding photo album is important for your children and future generations.
Your children and grandchildren will want to know what you looked like on your wedding day, but you may not think to show them if your pictures are stored on a USB. The technology may have advanced many years and USB may not exist anymore. A wedding album gives them something they can pull out on their own and look at, and it gives you something to pass down to future generations.
An album is something you can touch and feel.
Staring at pictures on a computer screen just isn’t the same as flipping through the pages of an album. Albums evoke much more powerful memories, and they give you a place where you can store mementos such as napkins, invitations or a petal from your wedding bouquet.
Wedding photo albums can be personalised and given to your parents as a thank-you gift.
Your parents will be very touched if you hand them an album with the details of your wedding day. It is a personal, sentimental gift that has much more value than a USB.
