Print your photos. Please.
If you do one thing with your wedding photos, or your family photos, or whatever kind of photos they may be…Get some prints made.
We are all guilty of not doing it enough. We have cell phones full of images, hard drives, USB & DVDs too. These things don’t last though. Phones die, hard drives fail, DVDs get lost. The technology changes so fast too…Right now I’m working on a computer that doesn’t even have a DVD drive. The new Mac computers hardly have any ports now… Sure, we backup some of our images to ‘the Cloud’, or post them on social media…But even those will pass… And a Facebook image we post is relevant for what, maybe a week if we are lucky? And then it just fades away.
But a print, or an album…These can last. For generations. I have prints of my parent’s wedding, my das’s school photos from 1960, old photos of my grandmothers as young women, & my grandfather, sitting on a tank in WWII.
So do yourself a favour…Order some prints. It has never been easier. You can get a print or photobook made right from your smartphone. There are a million apps to help you.
I encourage all my clients to print something…To make an album. Something they can hold in their hands…something their children will cherish, and even generations beyond that.
In this digital age, it is important to remember that some things are timeless, and holding a photo album in your hands, or hanging a print on your wall, will always be worth it.
I offer several print options to my clients. Canvases, matted prints, and my personal favourite, handmade flushmount photo albums. They can hold a beautiful collection of images from your wedding or family photoshoot. These albums will become cherished items, and help preserve memories that will last lifetimes.
So I hope you are convinced, and that you get some prints done, or make an album!
Not only are they great for yourself, but they make excellent gifts.
