Its a personal choice- some people love to look at books, some people love to look at screens. I think images can be easily forgotten when they reside on a digital device. Yes at first you’ll look at them constantly; you’ll share them on social media, text them to loved ones, email them to those who were too far away to join you in celebration. But after a few years, they often end up lost amongst the hundreds and thousands of other images we accrue on a daily basis.
A wedding album is an important book to have – if its in your budget! Once the wedding attire is packed away and the party is over.. the photographs are one of the few things left to remember the day. Digitals are great to have! But the album will be the special book passed through generations with all the memories enclosed. Often couples have the digitals and they stay on their computer. They always plan to print this or that, or create their own book – but it rarely happens.
Albums are also the best way to preserve your images. You may have your photos transferred to USB, or, some other storage option. What is going to happen to those images now? Will you have the time to arrange the photos to go into an album? Will you go to the trouble and get the photos printed? Possibly not.Get your photographer to put an album together, your photos are there for all to see.
