As technology changes and evolves, it’s comforting to know you’ll have a version of your album A trad compatible with the times instead of getting sucked into what Leigh calls the black hole of the internet. “Do you know where those photos you posted on MySpace 15 years ago are?” she asks. “I certainly don’t! Printing your favourite photos in an album allows you a chance to really showcase the best of the best in a beautiful storytelling format.

A traditional wedding album, purchased from your photographer or a designer they work with will stand the test of time. The photos are printed on high-quality photo paper and mounted on sturdy pages with precise binding techniques. After all, you most likely spent a decent portion of your wedding budget on a professional photographer so that you can have the highest quality images of your day. When it comes to displaying your wedding photos, it’s also best to leave it to the professionals. Those images should be showcased in an album that allows that quality to shine through.

A wedding album is a story book of your day, unique to you, a story from getting ready, the moment your bridesmaids see you in the dress, arriving in the car, walking down the aisle, the smile on your partners face, the tear in your mums eye, the celebration, the joy and happiness on guests faces.  A wedding photographer will have experience of doing this, they will know the best way to layout and structure the album, they will pick and photos that work well with each other, they will create an album that will tell the story of your day.
