Nothing is like holding your grandparent’s wedding album in your hands. You can feel the aged binding popping as you open it, stiff from sitting on the shelf. You can smell the pages, a little dusty after all these years. You can physically turn the pages, one by one, reliving one of the happiest days of their lives. I still love flipping through my grandparent’s old album even though I’ve done it many times before. I enjoy being able to pause on a picture, bring it closer to my face to see the details in the background. When I was younger, my dad would pull out the album and tell me stories as he turned the pages.
It’s just not the same on a computer screen. Even in today’s digital world, wedding heirloom albums are just as important, if not more so. So many of us have tons of images that have already become lost in the void of our Google Drive or iPhone albums, even though they’re just a couple years old. And in twenty years, who knows where all of those images will be or how easy we can access them.
Where will your images be? On an out-of-date computer or stored on an incompatible flash drive? Maybe a CD? Those things are already becoming obsolete.
Documentation is key (and customizable)
I am a firm believer that everyone should have their images (or memories, rather) displayed proudly in a wedding album, book, or physical heirloom of some sort. You owe it to yourself and your family. Those are priceless memories that should be preserved and passed down, not stuck on a piece of technology.
I would love to help you produce and heirloom you can’t want to share and display. Books are completely customizable and can come in any size. The most popular ones are 10×10 or 12×12, but I can guide you through that process based on what you want the end product to look like. If you have another idea in mind, let me know, and let’s see if we can make it happen!
Your images belong in a book that your grandkids or family can look at years from now as you share your story of how it all began.
