Albums tell the story

Our new tag line on our business card is very simple, "Illustrating your love story."

We want to be there in those special moments when dad sees his daughter as a bride for the first time or a groom spins his bride on the dance floor. We want to create photographs that capture those little moments on the day you have been waiting for. We want you to treasure your album forever.

In an age of digital pictures, why do we believe so much in selling albums? There are several practical reasons that I believe every couple should have a wedding album. First, digital media is constantly changing. We have already gone from giving couples DVDs to now USB drives. These are small and easy to lose. The reality is that you probably won't think to go look through pictures in a file folder the way you would a custom designed album. You have to make sure as you change computers that you keep up with your images and back them up.

Next, your digital collection will contain a ton of pictures and it can be overwhelming to look through. Our couples receive 400-600 edited images but our average album contains 80-100 carefully curated images custom designed to tell a story.

There is something special about the way you can take along your album to share with your family at Thanksgiving that is so much more enjoyable than everyone scrolling through hundreds of images on a device. You can leave it on your coffee table for guests to enjoy. Our kids love looking through our album.

We are very excited to announce we are using a new album vendor who make truly exciting products. We cannot wait for you to see your new style and cover choices and even a new way to order your album quickly and easily.

The digital format is a great way to archive all of your images but albums are a family heirloom to be treasured and truly illustrate the story of your day.
