5 Reasons Why Wedding Albums Are Important To Have

So much goes into having a wedding. And everything requires money: wedding dress, venues, professional photographer, wedding band, invitations, flowers, rehearsal dinner…the list goes on. It’s an unfortunate growing trend that wedding albums are often the first thing to get cut. Many couples aren’t aware of the importance of a wedding album. Like most couples, they probably went through great lengths to hire you, a professional photographer, to be there at their wedding to take beautiful images of the day. So it’s important that they choose a high quality and long lasting way to showcase and protect their wedding photos. The best way to showcase and store cherished photos is by putting them into a professionally designed and handcrafted wedding album.

With a custom handcrafted wedding album, they’ll be able to take a trip down memory lane anytime they want and relive the day from one special moment to another. There are many ways to cut back on a wedding to save money, but not investing into a professional wedding album isn’t one of them. If your clients are passing on wedding photography packages that include an album, here are 5 key reasons that you can share with them on why wedding albums are important to have.


Preserving Memories

Although it’s hard to imagine that they would forget any moment from their wedding day, the fact is that memories do fade over time. Especially when it’s been 10, 20 or 30+ years. With the help of a wedding album, they’ll be reminded of all those special moments that made their wedding day unique. Couples will be able to look through their wedding album anytime they wish, especially during anniversaries and when family and friends come visit. Taking out an album is much easier than having to search for digital files. And truth be told, digital copies can be lost. As much as everyone trusts in electronic media to store important files, it’s imperative to remember that e-files can get lost, corrupted or deleted.


Wedding Albums are Like a Storybook

When looking through the pages of a wedding album, the couple’s friends, parents, children and grandchildren can enjoy the story of their wedding day. This is especially wonderful to have for those that weren’t able to be make it to the couple’s wedding. Framed photos may only provide a glimpse into one specific moment. And digital photos can sometimes be out of order in the way they were saved. However, a wedding album can be arranged to provide a complete view of their special day from beginning to end, giving them a storybook feeling. Looking at the images from a disc on one’s computer or iPad just isn’t the same.


Technology Changes Over Time

Unfortunately, technology does change over time and it changes frequently. Those that captured and saved their wedding day on VHS, floppy disk or 35mm film have a hard time accessing their photos today. Those holding their photos with DVDs and CDs today will likely find them to be obsolete pretty soon. Couples may plan to transfer their images from one form of electronic media to the next as one becomes out-of-date, but honestly, many never get around to it. It is important to have a digital backup of one’s photos, but traditional wedding albums are a sure way to protect their photos and ensure they will be around for a long time. Remind your couples that professionally handcrafted albums use high quality, lasting materials and are worth the expense. Plus traditional wedding albums will never become obsolete no matter how much technology changes.


A Keepsake to Pass Down to Children and Future Generations

Wedding albums also make a wonderful heirloom to pass down from one generation to another. Most don’t think that far ahead, but by purchasing a wedding album, they are contributing to their family history.


Albums can be Personalized and Show Their Style

Viewing pictures on a computer screen just isn’t the same as flipping through the pages of an album. Albums stir up much more powerful memories. Albums also offer so many different ways in which one can customize to one’s style that digital photos don’t offer. It may include embossing, different album cover materials (leather, fabric, etc.) and colors, different album sizes, background color, layout and design, storage boxes, etc.


When looking back, the only regret that many couples have is that they do not have enough photographs of their special day. Those who took the time and spent the money to create a wedding album are always happy that they did. With a wedding album, couples can quickly show off their wedding photos and talk about their special day. Wedding albums are simply timeless and can preserve memories for many years to come.
