When I was a kid, I absolutely LOVED going through my parent’s and grandparents’ photo albums. They had stacks of them, and I could spend hours looking at all the photographs. There were photos of family vacations, baby pictures, and distant relatives. And there were wedding albums!
There is just something magical about looking through an album of photos from a wedding that you can’t get with digital pictures. Especially when your close relatives and loved ones are in the photos!
There are powerful emotions behind printed photographs. Being able to hold a photo in your hands invokes subconscious feelings inside. I can still remember my favorite photos- what they looked like, but also what they FELT like.
Wedding albums from Lume Photography
Modern wedding albums are a lot different than the albums of the past. Most of the albums I looked at when I was a kid were just loose photos that were slipped into plastic pages. The problem with that is that the constant contact with plastic causes photographs to discolor or even become stuck in place.
Wedding albums are now made so the photographs are printed directly on to the page, using archival inks and processes. So your album will last for many, many years and still look amazing.
The albums that I offer are incredibly beautiful. I’ve used several album manufacturers over the years, but I’ve always been careful about choosing album lines that are of exceptional quality. I want your album to remain a treasured heirloom for decades and generations. My current line of albums features some of the most exquisite materials!
Wedding album design
When I design a wedding album, I’m using all my experience as an artist and designer to put a love story together with images. In a clean, uncluttered way so when you start looking through the pages you’re taken right to that moment and experiencing it like you were there, from beginning to end.
Why do wedding albums cost so much?
There is a lot of hard work and loving care that goes into creating a wedding album. From the photographs themselves to the actual crafting of the album. The albums I offer are each carefully hand-made by a human being who’s an expert album craftsman. Not a machine. And it’s not a simple process.
The end product is an insanely beautiful keepsake- an heirloom quality album- that will tell your love story for many generations. These are albums that you’ll hold in your hands and say “WOW”!
