The other day a friend of mine posted this picture on Facebook:
On the one hand it’s funny to look at old technology and remember when we thought that was amazing and the best way to do something. On the other hand I’m so sad that this is where the pictures are. Because how on earth are you going to get them? And while floppy drives might seem like something from long long ago I can remember using them for photo storage with the first digital cameras back in 2003/2004. Just about 10 years ago. Now think about your wedding photos. How long after your wedding do you still want to be able to see your images? I think we are doing a better job of storing images and data these days, with the cloud and all… but sometimes I wonder. In 10 years will we still be able to access them? How about in 20? When will you stop going back through hundred of gigs of data to find them? How frequently do you actually look at all the photos you took on your phone and posted on Facebook a few years ago?
Pictures are memories and they were meant to be shared years down the road. I bet that you still have the photos from your parents (and grandparents) wedding days. If not in an actual album then you have at least one picture somewhere. I want you to be able to share your photos with your grandkids one day. And the best way to keep them is in an album, not somewhere on the computer. I do my best to print my photos, even the not so great iPhone ones. Because I know the only ones I look back at are the ones that I printed.
So I thought I’d share some photos of my wedding albums today! They are custom made and archival quality. Which basically means that they will still look beautiful when your grandchildren see them! You can have your album covered in beautiful fabric, or leather. You can keep the cover plain or add a photo or your name to it. My wedding albums also come in beautiful bamboo or walnut boxes with whatever you’d like engraved on the top. They are a beautiful way to protect and store your album for years to come!
