When I first started in wedding photography, like many other photographers in the digital era, I didn’t give much thought to printed photographs. With mobile phones, large screens, high resolution computer displays, and TV streaming easily available, who prints photos anymore? It was just easier to send a download link or hand over a disc of images for couples to do with as they pleased. But after speaking with couples a few years later and learning that most of them had never even looked through the disc, I’ve realised the disservice we’re doing for our couples and their families by not giving them something tangible to hold and pass down.

My grandfather was a photographer and ran a successful studio in the heart of Mumbai, so we had plenty of albums and photos lying around the house. The family would sit around as my grandmother went through the albums and told us the stories behind the images. It was an unforgettable experience, having the family together, laughing and eating, bringing us closer together. Of course, with the added benefit of getting the scoop on what mischief our parents got up to when they were kids.

The wedding album is a newly married couple’s first heirloom as they start their own family. Here are some reasons why getting a wedding album is so important:

  1. Investment: A fine art wedding album is an investment in your memories and your family’s legacy. It’s a tangible item that you can keep for years to come, long after the wedding day has passed. It allows you to relive those special moments and memories, and share them with your loved ones.
  2. Timeless quality: A wedding album is a timeless piece that can be passed down from generation to generation. It’s something that you can share with your children and grandchildren, allowing them to see how your love story began.
  3. Durability: An heirloom fine art wedding album is designed to last for generations. The archival quality paper and inks used ensure that the album will not deteriorate over time, so you can pass it down without worrying about it fading or yellowing. The high-quality materials and printing process used ensure that the album will retain its beauty for years to come.
  4. Professional Quality: Your wedding photos are professionally taken and edited to capture the essence of your special day. A wedding album is a beautiful way to showcase these photos in a professional, high-quality format.
  5. Storytelling: A fine art wedding album tells the story of your special day in a way that digital photos cannot. The album is designed to tell the story of your wedding day in a way that is both visually stunning and emotionally evocative by showcasing the sequence of events, from getting ready to the ceremony, reception, and everything in between.
  6. Unique: A wedding album is a unique and personalised item that reflects your style and personality. It can be customised to suit your preferences, from the size and style to the cover and layout.

A wedding album is a crucial investment that captures the essence of your special day in a timeless, professional, and personalised way. It’s something that you can cherish and share with your loved ones for years to come.
