Is Having A Professionally Made & Printed Wedding Album Worth It?
While our treasured wedding memories are lovingly stored in our hearts and minds, there is something so special about turning the pages of your tangible and beautifully made custom wedding album and being able to show it to your family and friends for generations to come.
Right? Then again, should we just get with the times by giving them, and ourselves, a USB? Dare I say, a Dropbox link? As the world becomes increasingly digital and technology is forever advancing, is the classic printed wedding album still worth the energy and time you need to put it together? Or the dollars you need to part with to have your photographer expertly make one for you?
To answer these questions and to talk all things wedding albums, we sat down with the incredibly talented Lowina of Black Avenue Productions
Let’s be honest… Professionally made and printed albums are not cheap. Why is that?
You are paying for your photographer’s time as well as a team of professional album crafters who print and bind the customised album. We carefully select professional quality lay flat creations that won’t be your typical photo book that you can buy online. And the professionals use archival quality paper and ink that is meant to last for 100 years!
When would you recommend getting your wedding album made?
We recommend you getting your album ASAP after we send out your wedding photos online gallery, so you can show it off sooner!
Do you have a signature look or style?
We will design your personalised cover emboss design and you get to choose your material and colour of foil to your liking. The type of paper and ink that we use are archival quality that meant to last for 100 years!
Does the couple choose the images or does the photographer?
Every image that we deliver in the final USB / online gallery has already been selected and edited by us. The couple can choose their top 100 images to put into their album, or we can also choose. It’s a team effort to create your perfect wedding album.
What is your favourite moment/memory to capture in a wedding and why?
We love to capture the ‘first look’. Not only with the groom, many brides are choosing to have a first look shoot with parents and bridesmaids.
