Having a Tangible Album, Holding the Proof in Your Hands

There is something special about creating your first family heirloom, and we value the beauty in tangible products like printed canvases and wedding albums. Having digital images is wonderful, but making keepsakes is priceless!  

When you make that big leap as an engaged couple, one of the first things you have to do is set priorities for your wedding planning. What do you value most? We might be a bit biased, but we believe that couples should make photography a top priority. After all, when the big day is over, you leave the reception with only your spouse and your pictures—that’s it! And those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding.

When you book us for your wedding you can see your images anytime you want in your custom online gallery, and we include download access to you for your digital files. These are great for convenience and the ability to share with your friends and family online.

But technology is changing so quickly. Remember VHS tapes? If you wanted to relive an old family event, do you even have the technology to rewatch one of those old tapes? Who knows what other technological advances will be made in the coming years—we can’t know our hard drives will even be read by future computers. But physical images, photos you can hold in your hands, will never be out of date in that way. They stand the test of time and technology. You and your future generations deserve to have those memories preserved in a way you will always be able to retrieve them.

So, let’s talk about real photos. The last thing we want is for the images we create for you to get lost on a thumb drive in a drawer somewhere or to get only five minutes of fame on your social media account before being forgotten. We want to create lasting memories, lasting pieces, lasting artwork you can enjoy day after day and pass down from generation to generation. To that end, we offer two different products for you to enjoy your special memories forever: legacy albums and wall art.

Legacy Albums

It’s true. Albums are expensive. And, they SHOULD be.

Albums do not just store photos, they store memories. Not only that … albums tell stories. Pictures are meant to be used, held and enjoyed. Albums are the perfect way in which to create a communal experience with your treasured photos. Albums will continue to be great storytellers long after the social media “likes” disappear and the USB’s get forgotten.

A custom wedding legacy album is a forever family heirloom that tells the story of the single most important day in a couple’s lives like no other product can. And … it can live on to be shared and enjoyed across generations to come! That is an experience (not just a product) that is truly PRICELESS and worthy of an investment that will last a lifetime!

But speaking of product … we have selected albums that speak volumes when it comes to value and custom workmanship. Every one of our albums is proudly handmade here in the United States. Each album is custom designed and printed on the finest quality Fuji Crystal Archival photographic paper and bound with either 100% natural Italian leather cover, that is soft to the touch yet durable, or linen, which is made of a beautiful textile blend. Lay-flat pages with a protective coating allow the story of your wedding day to shine through while helping the album stand the test of time.

Speaking of time, we guarantee the workmanship of your album and warranty our albums for life. Only the best for our clients!

Value of Legacy Albums Video

To further illustrate the impact and value that your legacy album has, we put together this great video for you!

Wall art

You deserve to see your memories hanging on your walls! We offer beautiful, hand-crafted, premium gallery wraps with solid, 1.5-inch wood frames wrapped and finished with a beautiful UV-protected laminate. Most of the time, we like to put multiple canvas wraps together in a collage so you can tell your story throughout your home. We love being reminded of our own family memories as we walk down our hallways and see our pictures, and we want the same for you!

Whether it’s a legacy wedding album, wall art, or a combination of the two, we feel that these tangible products are the perfect ending to your wedding experience with us. We can’t wait to capture your memories for you—and to help you preserve them forever!
