Here you will find some of the celebrations, special occasions, and projects we have been honored to document over the past eleven years.
Last week we talked about the legacy that wedding albums record for our family as it grows and roots down in love. I love the idea of having a quality handcrafted album to sit out for visitors to look through in our home. However, not all wedding albums are created equal as we learned our first few years in business. We knew that our brides wanted albums, and we wanted to provide them something a step above what they could easily have printed at a big box store or online. However, our knowledge was almost as limited as our brides when we were just growing our business.
We initial picked a company that was budget friendly and had a decent turn around time. We ordered a sample album to share during our meetings with our couples and proceeded on our happy way. Not a lot of couples were interested in a wedding album when we first started out and to be honest, they didn’t see much of a difference between the one we were offering and one they could make themselves. After 6 months of toting around the wedding album to meetings, we started to realize that not all album companies are created equal.
The word legacy itself implies something substantial and long lasting. These books aren’t just a run of the mill bookstore quality book to be flung under a coffee table at the end of the day, forgotten and un-dusted. Instead, these legacy albums should have weight to them and feel supple to the touch. Legacy albums are meant to be looked at, displayed, and saved. Because of this belief, we now use a company right here in the United States that hand makes all of their fine art albums with a life time guarantee. Their turn around time may not be the same as the other company but the product is totally worth the wait. We believe these heirloom items will be passed down for generations as they look to them to view their family history.
