WEDDING ALBUMS ARE IMPORTANT – Jacksonville, FL Wedding Photographer

I don’t know about you, but I love looking through old family photos. To see my Mother or Grandmother in her wedding dress is a piece of history that I am so glad was documented. Too bad so many of the photos have turned colors or faded over time. The old days, photo paper & labs were not the standard of professional labs today. However, if you are a bride out there hoping to save a few bucks by printing your own album at a “photo lab” such as Snapfish or Kodak Easy Share, your granddaughter will never be able to see how beautiful and in love you were on your wedding day. In pursuit of the almighty dollar consumer albums and prints are made from cheap, chemical-laden materials, which will start to degrade immediately.  In 5 years the colors will have noticeably faded, the edges will yellow and your face will start to look spotty.  In ten years you’ll take the print you were once so happy with off the wall and stick it in a closet.  You will be married for the rest of your life; don’t you want an album that you can proudly show to your grandkids instead of something that will look shabby in a few years?

What does archival mean?  It means every bit of your album from the pages, the prints, the glue used to bind the prints to the pages, the UV coating on top of the images, the fabric and thread used to bind the book, the base of the cover and the leather or fabric covering are going to look the same 50 years in the future as they do now.  Yes, you can print an album through snapfish.com for under $200 or you can go with my Not-So-Basic package and get a museum quality, archival 20 sided album which will preserve the memories of your wedding beyond your lifetime.

This brings me to Couture’s Wedding Albums! I just got two of my client’s albums in last week so I wanted to share.  I LOVE designing albums. Oh yes, I design them each one of our clients. I used to out source, but was never happy with the designs. Now I feel it is has become just as important as shooting the wedding. Laying out the images to tell a story of a couples day brings the images to life, and is the greatest way for you and your future generations to remember your day for years to come. Trust me. You will never regret having your wedding album, but you might regret not having one.
