Heirloom Wedding Albums

I have always believed in the importance of creating an Heirloom Album from your wedding day photos that tells the story of your day for generations to come. There is nothing that compares to holding an album in your hand and sharing it with loved ones over staring at photos on a screen. 

If you think about your grandparent's wedding photos you likely have seen them because of an album or prints, I doubt the negatives can be found but the prints although dog eared and worn are still available to share. Digital media fails over time and even though I tell couples to upgrade their media from CD to USBs and onto whatever the next technology will be I don't think it's something that many couples remember to do. Most computers don't even come with the ability to open a CD any longer so it will be increasingly difficult to access your wedding photos. A wedding album is a small way to ensure that you always have something to look at and share.

I am very proud to be working with a small artisan company that makes heirloom quality hand bound archival albums in Canada.

My heirloom wedding albums are presented in an album box for extra protection. You can choose to have the album box match your album or choose a contrasting fabric for something unique.

You can choose from natural linens, Japanese silk or leathers for both your album and album box.

I chose Oatmeal linen for this album's box with a striking black & white grosgrain ribbon pull and a beautiful orange leather with silver embossing for the album.

Heirloom wedding albums are printed on archival paper so they won't fade over time. As a photographer I love that the photos are printed to match my monitor so they appear as they were intended. Inferior printing often means weird skin tones or too dark or too light prints. Creating an Heirloom wedding album ensures you will have beautiful photos to share with loved ones for years to come.
