“I just want the digital files…

… I don’t need an album.”

I can’t tell you how often I hear this so when I came across this article today on the Huffington Post by Kathleen Trenske, I was more than thrilled!  To all my wonderful clients out there that decide against getting a wedding album, please read this!

“…what about couples that marry today? What if they decide to forgo an album? What if they decide it’s not worth the cost? How many images do you really think they’ll put into frames? Five? Ten? Maybe that first year married, they’ll have a bunch. But then, kids comes along. Baby pictures replace wedding pictures in those frames. They move, things change. In 40 years, how many pictures do you think their children will know by heart? How many pictures will they have even seen?  Today, a lot of couples think just getting the disc of images is ‘good enough.’ Here’s the problem with that thinking: it’s not true. Not by a long shot.”

Albums may be a big investment today but I promise you will never look back and think “man, I wish we spent that money somewhere else!”  It will only increase in value to you and your family.  This is why I include albums in all of my packages because I honestly believe you will value them for the rest of your life!

Happy Tuesday!

    I completely agree with this post. Since getting married we have only printed one photo that is framed in our house. We have an album and it is definitely a great way to look back on that day. 🙂ReplyCancel
