Album Heirlooms

January 20, 2012

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a girl with a taste for the classically old. I write with a fountain pen, I read Jane Austen, I’ve just finished watching all 5 seasons of The Tudors and am now dealing with some very serious Henry VIII cold-turkey type withdrawals. And while I embrace almost fully, the universal shift to all things electronic, I worry about the future of all things paper. You see, I happen to be a big fan of paper. I’m obsessed with pretty stationary and any kind of paper that can be personalized. I love books and the sense of accomplishment I feel with each new book I finish and how well they look all stacked up on my shelves. Its the exact same buzz I get when wedding albums arrive for my brides. The black boxes containing albums of the top grain luxurious leather, I can’t help but squeal with excitement as I flip through the pages of images that will forever memorialize the wedding day of each of my fabulous couples. In this time of iPhones, iPads, Tablets, and even Facebook, digital images have become a very important way for couples to share their special day with family and friends, but there is just something so timeless, elegant and classy about a traditional wedding album. The first family heirloom the couple can treasure and proudly display in their home, so that 50 years from now, when Facebook has morphed into something completely different and instead of smart phones and iPads we are using god knows what instead, the album is something I truly believe will stand the test of time.

This week while working with one of my brides to select the images for her wedding album, I picked up the completed album for another of my fabulous couples, Jennifer and Martin. Their wedding album turned out amazing and I couldn’t help but share some snapshots of the final product.

As always I use Azura for all my Wedding and Guest Sign In Albums and my layouts are designed by the every talented Amy from Albumesque.
