I’ve written about albums before, but I am so excited to have this brand new heartfelt promo video that I can’t help but share! It’s so convenient, especially the awesome custom PASS gallery app, to just view your images on your phone. Having your digital images is useful for a lot of things; I’m an over-sharer – this is why you’ll always get them with every wedding no matter what. But there’s a reason albums have been apart of the wedding tradition for years. There’s something so different about holding them in your hands. A luxury album is something you’ll have on your coffee table for a lifetime to come.
It’s your first heirloom as a couple. You’ll open it up on a rainy day and flip through a few pages in a moment of quiet. You’ll break it open to end your first fight and reminisce the feelings you felt when you married the love of your life. One day, little ballerina fingers and hands shaped just like his will stumble upon it; as you start to relive the start of your legacy with your children. If you want something completely different, check out the heirloom boxes.
An album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can. And it lives on to tell that story to your children and grandchildren. When you face trials in your marriage, and like my nana always says, “it’s not IF you will face trials, but WHEN,” I challenge you to sit side by side on the sofa and look through your wedding album together. I don’t know any couple who could do this and not be reminded of their love and the fact that they can make it through anything.
It’s true. Albums are expensive. And, they SHOULD be. Albums don’t just store photos, they store memories, they tell stories. Pictures are meant to be used, held and enjoyed. Albums are the perfect way in which to create a communal experience with your treasured photos. Albums will continue to be great storytellers long after the Facebook “likes” disappear & the USB’s get forgotten. A custom wedding album is a forever family heirloom that tells the story of the single most important day in a couple’s lives like no other product can.
It can live on to be shared and enjoyed across generations to come! That is an experience (not just a product) that is truly PRICELESS and worthy of an investment that will last a lifetime! We have selected albums that speak volumes when it comes to value and custom workmanship. Yes, with evolved technology, couples now have the ability to easily design their own photo books, but as you can see from this past post, it’s just that. We wanted to give you something of quality that you just can’t order on your own. These albums are SO beautiful and such high quality. Each album is custom designed and printed on the finest Fuji Crystal Archival photographic paper and bound with a 100% natural Italian leather cover that is soft to the touch yet durable. Lay-flat pages with a protective coating allow the story of your wedding day to shine through while helping the album stand the test of time.
Not to mention, 90% of my couples who say they will do this end up coming back to me a year after saying they never got around to it. Each album is custom designed and printed on the finest quality photographic paper, bound with 100% natural Italian leather cover that is soft to the touch yet durable. Lay-flat pages with a protective coating allow the story of your wedding day to shine through while helping the album stand the test of time. Only the best for our clients!
I will design your album with the full story in mind, and tell it in the best possible way – which will most likely include more pages than originally purchased. You don’t need to buy the additional spreads, I want to make sure that option is there for you. A 15 spread (30 page) album yields approx. 45-75 photos. I like to keep each spread to 3-5 images to keep the album feeling light and airy, however if there are late night dancing photos, they can all go on one page.
A cameo window is also included in the price of your couples’ album. Again, they can also be added to parent albums as well as any of the other upgrades. Showcase your ultimate favourite image from your wedding day, often a portrait of the two of you. This is something that almost everyone adds to all their albums. It’s just such a gorgeous touch that makes everyone want to pick it up. Engraving is included in the price of your couples’ album. They can also be added to parent albums.
I will design your initial album design with a collection of images that I feel best tells the complete story of your day. Upon viewing your design, you will be able to swap out images if you have favourites that didn’t make the initial cut. You will use your PASS gallery to link your designer to specific images letting me know which ones you want to be added to your design.
Depending on how quickly you approve your final design, you can have your album in your hands only 4-6 weeks after your wedding! When your album has arrived, I’ll let you know right away! We can either arrange to have it shipped to you or we can schedule a pickup. These books are quite substantial so an additional shipping fee can get pricey, that’s why I offer a pickup option as well.
And now for the pièce de résistance, this gorgeous promo video that I am COMPLETELY in love with. It pulls at my heart strings and completely represents why I do what I do and why albums are so important as the only medium that will stand the test of time!!
