Returning for a bit to this beautiful wedding at the Duxbury Bay Maritime Academy. It was a colder and rainier than expected day, but everyone was in full spirits the whole day. Sharing a few more of my favorite images and some of the pages from their beautiful wedding album.
Over the years, specifically as Facebook has taken over as our life journal record, I've found that clients don't want wedding albums like they used to. I keep hearing 'all we want is the digital files.' In the constant evolution in consuming media and view images. We are used to seeing our life memories through media readily available to us in our pockets (like our phones). I get it. Having access to digital files (and right now!) has become the expectation.
Yet, I value the experience of holding the actual photography. Prints and albums don't need any tool to interface with them. No electricity. No internet access. As you can hold them in your hands and feel them under your fingertips, as objects they become as important as the images they hold.
Presented below are a few spread from a wedding album I designed for the Duxbury Bay Maritime Academy wedding this fall. This wedding album will be a beautiful object to treasure, to share with friends and family. The experience of remembering and sharing those memories is more intimate than sending someone a gallery link on screen..
telling a story
One reason that I love photographing weddings is storytelling. Each wedding album is carefully and custom designed in a sequence. Each page and page spread reads visually as both a singular moment and a unified part of your story. A wedding album is something that you will return to and enjoy for years.
Getting physical - Not digital
Remember that interacting with something tangible and physical is different than scrolling through a gallery on your phone. Imagine holding a beautifully bound wedding albums in your hands. This is an object that you don't have to plug in or charge to look through. This wedding album will be treasured as future generations handle it with love and wonder.
You'll be glad that you have it. To hold, to look at, to hold your memories.
If you only got digitals and want to get the ball rolling on your wedding album, start by favoriting your must-haves in your gallery. Submit those favorites to me, and we begin from there. Want to hold and to touch examples? Let's set a date this January to start planning and designing the best album for you.
My annual call is back:
Bring back the physical object! Save and treasure love notes! Print and frame images of the people you care about! Experience memories without ‘screen time.’ Be thoughtful about how we vision our lives! Care for, and create lovingly, our own history!
So excited to ship these out for the holiday!
