THE AWESOMENESS OF YOUR LUXURY ALBUM
AND THE IMPORTANCE
OF PRESERVING YOUR MEMORIES
At Fox and Fellow we are real big advocators of printing your most cherished memories. We are here to guide you every step of the way, from planning to photography to print! The day you get married is SO incredibly special, meaningful, and exploding with wonderful moments. These moments pass by so quickly, and our job as photographers is to capture them so they can be preserved for years to come. The awesome thing about an album is that it tells the story of your wedding day every time you view it.
Buttttt if you don't print your photos, what happens to them?
WHY A WEDDING ALBUM IS AN INVESTMENT YOU NEED TO MAKE!
While you will undoubtedly remember the rush of emotions you felt on your wedding day, it’s less likely that you will remember all those little moments that happened. Having a hard copy of your most precious memories in physical form allows you to revisit your special day over and over. You can relive your favourite memories, like the first moment you look at one another as a married couple, or when your brother made a funny face at you. Wedding albums are built to stand the test of time, so they last throughout your entire life. It’s something you can share with your children, and grandchildren in the years to come.
AN ALBUM IS THE PERFECT WAY TO PRESERVE MEMORIES FROM YOUR WEDDING DAY
Although it’s lovely to see all your photos digitally, once you download them it’s not often you take the time to look through them. Before we know it, in a few years technology has advanced to the next kind of electronic media. While of course many couples have the intention of transferring their wedding photos to the new system, realistically most don’t get around to it. Traditional photo albums have been around for a long time, and their quality is only improving. Today’s upscale albums are beautifully crafted while still being timeless.
TECHNOLOGY IS ALWAYS CHANGING
There is something indescribable about having your wedding photos in physical form, in high quality prints. The act of having something that you can not only see, but also touch and smell, brings your viewing experience to a whole other level. What’s more, is that often times smaller “copy” albums are available to purchase for your parents. This way you can enjoy your wedding, and at the same time it’s a gift you can give to your family. Your wedding album becomes a family heirloom that lasts through your generation, and the next ones too. This is something that you will simply always treasure.
HAVING AN ALBUM IS AN INVESTMENT
Although single photographs certainly have their place, like as an art piece in your home, a wedding album tells the narrative of your specific wedding day from beginning to end. This carries you through your wedding day all over again, and shows anyone viewing your album just how your day looked and felt. This is something you can share and cherish with your friends and family for years and years.
YOUR WEDDING ALBUM SHOWCASES YOUR UNIQUE STORY
It’s important to have a place to see your wedding story, and ensure you’re really getting the value out of your photography package. Why go to the trouble of having incredible wedding photography and then hardly ever look at your photos? Investing in a wedding album for yourself and your parents is the perfect way to ensure you and the people closest to you can relive one of the most important days of your life over and over, while at the same time getting the most value out of your photographers.
QUALITY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IS A LUXURY YOU PURCHASED
Now that you've decided on an album, Let's talk about Quality vs Quantity
Why can't I just print at a department store vs a professional photo lab with you two goofs???
I hate being the bearer of bad news, but alas, you get what you pay for. We've put a TON of research into choosing our printer for that very reason - they are excellent at what they do and one of the few we could find that prints our photos exactly as they are. Every printer and monitor is set up for different colours/brightness and that makes it REALLY difficult to print accurately. Albums that you print at a Walmart or Costco just aren't going to look the same as the photos on your screen. And they don't print on the same beautiful long lasting materials, either! What's more, the quality of the image from a professional print lab doesn’t discolour over time like with a department store. It's meant to last a lifetime.
Bottom Line: Yep - Albums are more expensive with us than your run-of-the-mill department store or local print supplier but it's a one time purchase for something you have for your entire life. It's absolutely worth it to preserve the memories of the day you got married.
You're gonna wanna get it right.
HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT WEDDING ALBUM
CHOOSE THE AMOUNT OF PHOTOS
Wedding albums start at 30 photos, and you can upgrade to 50 or 100. The best way to start is to glance through your gallery and favorite images as you go along. If you end up flagging 45 photos, that’s a good indication that you can narrow it down to 30 and have something more simple. However, if you flag 150, then you might want to consider a larger album.
Albums with 30 photos generally just hit the highlights of your day, without any extras. An album with 50 or 100 images usually includes some detail images and candid memories of your guests.
INCLUDE STORY TELLING IMAGES
When choosing your wedding photos, try to include some images of your flowers, the dress, or some other details you really loved. Having these images (even just 1 or 2!) really help to piece together your unique story. A photo of the ceremony/reception location really sets the scene for the day, too!
ADD THE PHOTOS WITH EMOTION!
This is so important. When you look back through your wedding album, it’s so much more meaningful to see a memory of a cute moment with your parents, or with your best friends, than it is to choose a posed photo from the family session. These photos really add feeling to your day and create much more powerful memories. These are the things you never want to forget.
THIS IS YOUR DAY! PRIORITIZE PHOTOS OF YOU AS A COUPLE!
The portrait session with you and your partner is a very special part of your day. We strive to create images that really embody you as a couple, images that show your personality and your love for one another. These are really beautiful mini-stories of who you are together, and after all, your wedding is a celebration of your unity! Adding your favorite photos of the two of you should be a priority.
CHOOSE YOUR COVER AND EMBOSSING
As opposed to choosing an album cover that matches your wedding colours, it’s better to choose something neutral. You will have your wedding album on your coffee table or in your living room for years to come. Neutral colours are timeless!
