Are you anticipating that social media or cloud storage will soon replace an actual wedding photo album? Think again! The aesthetic of photo albums is ever-evolving, just like a fashion trend. That’s why you still see printed images.
When it comes to wedding photos, it is pretty unappealing to display each picture on your iPhone or laptop. You want to be able to look through the pages of a well-made wedding photo book to recreate the joy and love you experienced on your big day. You also want to be able to share that experience with others.
A wedding album is your family’s first heirloom. It makes it simpler to find your wedding photos to encourage you and your spouse to stick together during difficult times. It will also make a priceless keepsake for future generations.
More than just a book of photos, a wedding album is a collection of them. It’s a lovely memento that chronicles your wedding day. You can create a unique album layout that highlights the pleasant aspects of the day and engagingly recounts its events.
Do not get overly thrilled about having your favourite wedding photos in digital files. Consider these two reasons why you should still print them even if we live in the digital age.
Most memories are pretty malleable. Our childhood photo albums and those of our parents and grandparents deteriorate, fade, or even change shape over time. In most cases, we don’t recognise even the most critical events, but looking at printed pictures of them makes us believe we do.
Printed photos usually have more pixels than on a screen; you can leave them to your children and grandchildren as souvenirs. Photo albums are an excellent way to preserve memories. Your wedding photographer will document moments that will live on in the photos so that you, your spouse, your family, and friends can recall them in the future.
It can be nice to post all your wedding pictures online, but there will probably be some people who care about you and others who don’t. Or, for whatever reason, you might not want everyone to view your images. For instance, you might not want all of your Facebook images to be visible to your neighbour.
Although there are privacy settings to keep your images private, anyone can access your account. That can’t happen if you print the photos allowing only you and those who matter to you to browse through your photo album.
It can be challenging for beginners to decide which images to use and how to arrange them, especially considering most people don’t necessarily have the time or trust themselves to make a wedding album that really stands out. However, choosing the right photo album can make the job easier.
Although some of the standard components of a wedding album may appear dated, they are still employed because they provide the best method for future viewers of your images to enjoy them. A leather cover of album size 10 x 15 or 10 x 10 has enough space for full-size images. Of all the photo album cover materials out there, no other fabric or finish holds up as well as leather.
Anything you purchase for a wedding album should be a high-quality heirloom, including the album cover. Ensure that the layouts are printed on archival, acid-free paper as well. The photos will look better and endure longer. Even if you print the photos in your parents’ book from the 1980s on picture paper, they will probably improve over time. The image will be more apparent if you print it on photographic paper, but a lot of the elements move in different ways when it’s in a photo album compared to a frame.
The most authentic way to retain and remember your wedding moment is in a physical album. Wedding albums are like fine art that will endure long after we are gone. They serve as evidence of our existence.
When our hard drives and computers fail, we will have lost all of those digital memories in a century. Prints and albums will still be here. Include a wedding photo book during your wedding planning.
At Photoland, we have a wide variety of premium lay-flat photo books and photo albums that are bound and printed on fine paper. You can easily place photos on both sides of our photo books which display them in rich pixels to give them a dynamic appearance. Opulently thick paper stock and beautiful hardcover casing complete the set.
Your bookshelf or coffee table will look refreshed with one of the Photoland wedding photo albums, not to mention keeping that special memory there as a constant reminder.
