CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING ALBUM

Do you really need an album when your photos look this good on screen?

As far as I’m concerned there is no debate. Can you compare the sheer delight of holding your beautifully printed album in your hands or sharing photographs digitally on a screen? Of course, photos look fabulous on screen and it’s incredibly easy to share them with your nearest and dearest but will they still be there in 50 years time? Or will they be resting idly in your cloud while your grandchildren fruitlessly search for the required password?

Maybe they never make it to the cloud and they sit on an old computer somewhere before they are forgotten and the old PC is marched off to the tip! Or (getting carried away now) perhaps computers stop reading jpegs and you never get round to converting them into something else?

In contrast, an album will last a lifetime. Either nestling in its box or taking pride of place on your bookshelves, it’s readily available for reminiscing whenever the wish arises. My love for photography began many years ago. I would spend hours at my grandparent’s house studying their many photo albums, peeling back the sticky film, lifting the photographs out, desperately wanting there to be something written on the back (yes I’m that old)! I found out all I could about the people in the photos and their many stories. Despite its usefulness, I doubt a digital album would be nearly as satisfying. The knowledge that generations of my own family had actually handled the photographs and written their own interpretations on the back is what made the experience so special for me. Its a tangible connection to the past. A past I wasn’t part of but one I most definitely belong to. Its why I tell my couples that the album isn’t really for them. It’s for the future generations they may not ever even meet.

I love these books, they really suit my style of my reportage photography plus you have the luxury of choosing from 3 different paper types. Glossy, not so glossy & fine art. The cover can be either a photograph or a plain solid colour of your choice. The Beast is presented in a white gift box, it’s also possible to order A4 versions at the same time for the parents.
