One thing is for sure, We all treasure our precious memories. I can only think of a few things that a sane person would run into their burning home to retrieve and I'm sure their photographs are among the top 3. Being a husband for almost 7 years makes me realize that it is important to have art work of you and your spouse from the wedding day. Let's face it, after your wedding day passes life goes on. For example, your family starts to grow and once the first child comes into the picture , no pun intended, priorities change dramatically. So my advice, when planning your wedding and allocating funds for the big day Please, please, please prioritize getting the wedding album.
These are my top 3 reasons:
1. Technology changes quickly. Do you remember VHS, and floppy discs? You don't want to have your images stuck on a piece of old technology.
2. I don't know of any photographers that design wedding albums from pictures taken by another photographer. If you trust your photographer to shoot your wedding, then allow him or her to design and deliver your wedding album. You don't want to know how many people have reached out to me to create an album for their wedding, that was shot by another photographer. It is not easy as you may think to design your album artfully while telling the story of your special day. Leave it up to the artist!
3. Most people never go back to ordering their wedding albums. Life goes on after the honeymoon and priorities change. Don't be that wife (or husband) that try to create their wedding album while being exhausted after work and hit a point where you just don't care any more.
I have a few more reasons why it is important to get your wedding album lumped into to your wedding package but I have to keep this short! If this helps one person then it was worth it!
