Twenty years from now…

“Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility.” -Anne Hathaway

Hi there!

Question for you newly engaged friends out there.  When you think BEYOND your wedding planning, past your wedding day celebrations, and into the future, maybe 10, 20, 30 years, how do you imagine enjoying your wedding day photographs?

I’ll give you a minute to really think about it.

MOST likely, when you sit and think about cherishing your wedding memories in photographs decades after you say I do, you will NOT think of the cute little USB used to download the images, put them on facebook and then threw into the junk drawer [or, if you’re like me, the special “wedding memories” box, first used as the card box on your wedding day].

You probably will NOT think about how many likes your first wedding facebook profile photo got [will facebook even still exists?].

And you probably will NOT think of scrolling through hundreds of images from your wedding day on your computer as ‘enjoyment’ [I spend so much time at my computer already!]

But maybe, when you think about how you will enjoy those images 20 years from now, you see your absolute favorite image from the day as a big print hanging on the wall beautifully matted and framed above your mantel.

Maybe you imagine being able to sit down with your spouse, your children, or your grandchildren and flip through your album, and story tell how your wedding day went; the goof ups with the vows, the sweet-clumsy first dance, and the embarrassing drunk cousin shenanigans.

The photographer you choose to photograph your day is super important [you should like them, think they’re funny and trust they will do an amazing job].  But how you are going to ENJOY your images after your wedding date passes is equally important.

WHICH, brings me to the subject of this post.  NEW ALBUMS!

I’ve been a lover of wedding albums since I was a child, flipping through my parents album [which was that awful sticky album, with the clear sheet on top ->we later upgraded it, when scrapbooking was all the rage].

These new albums of mine are GORGEOUS.  They come in 8×8 [small-ish], 10×10 [average], and 12×12 [if you like things bigger than normal].  I don’t really have a ton to say about them [besides that they’re exquisite, and beautiful], and I think to really understand how cool they are you have to be able to touch them and flip through them and see in person what I’m talking about, BUT, I wanted to show them off a bit, and remind you to think of the future.

So, don’t think solely about the images taken on your wedding day, but instead think also about how you will enjoy them a couple decades from now.

Cheers!

PS: Featured album is Gina and Eric‘s real life album!
