3 Reasons Why You Should Invest In a Wedding Album

I totally understand from experience that weddings are costly and parting with more money could be one of the last things on your mind once the day is over. After spending thousands of dollars on what’s said to be one of, if not the most important day’s of our adult lives, spending a little bit extra on the presentation of your wedding photos could seem somewhat unnecessary. However, you may want to reconsider after reading our top 3 reasons for investing in a custom wedding photo album. 

Better yet, see the excitement from one of my couples Bec and Ben who just received theirs!


I had the pleasure of hand delivering this beautiful White Linen Fine Art Album to Bec and Ben in their new Doubleview home this week and it filled me with so much joy watching their faces light up as they relived their incredible day through the thick matte art pages of their new favourite possession.

Watch Ben and Bec flip through the pages of their wedding album for the first time. Just in time for their first child, this Fine Art album will look beautiful on their coffee table in their new house and be an heirloom to pass down that their kids will treasure forever!

It took Ben and I a while to organize our wedding album after the wedding as choosing between all the amazing photos taken on the day was really difficult. Kate did such a great job as our photographer there were just so many photos we wanted to include in our album.

We decided to purchase a wedding album as we wanted to show our loved ones and especially our daughter once she arrives what a magical day our wedding was.

When receiving the album it exceeded our expectations. The quality of the album is exceptional, including the packaging, paper and colour quality and the way the images have been printed. What also highly impressed us was how Kate organized and placed the images to tell a story of the day. It really captures the days essence and it will be something we cherish for years to come.

The wedding album is even more beautiful than we expected and we cannot wait to share these memories with our little girl.

Thank you so much Kate!!

3 Reasons Why You Should Invest In a Wedding Album

1. Nothing Beats the Physical.

The moment that you receive your wedding photos will undoubtedly never be forgotten. After waiting for what may feel like forever, you’ll probably race to sit down with your family, anxious but oh so excited at the thought of reliving moments from the best days of your lives. Special right? Nowadays most couples receive their photos digitally, and although I LOVE the beautiful online galleries I have to be honest, there is no better feeling than that of being presented with a tangible version of your wedding album. The scent of the pages, the texture of the paper, the very feeling of holding the album in your hands, turning the pages are all emotions that just cannot be met by our digital counterparts. These feelings alone make the decision worthwhile. 

2. Consider Your Album an Heirloom. 

Can you recall moments sitting and flicking through your grandparents or parents photo albums, listening intently to the stories that followed? As you all know, we’re not going to be here forever and there may come a day when you might want, if you haven’t already started, to expand your family. Albums can be passed down through to future generations and your stories will follow. What better way to leave your legacy behind than with a photo album, the story of your day beautifully bound within pages versus being flicked through on a screen? Rather than tucking your USB away in a drawer to be forgotten about forever, the printed version of your album can be presented, displayed even and reached for by anyone in any given moment. 

3. They Make Perfect Gifts.

Photo albums are unmatched when it comes to gifting. The verdict has been in for a while and most people are simply over acquiring “things”, with more of us now embracing a less is more approach to life. We crave experiences which in turn create memories. Gifting a wedding album is priceless and will surely be treasured for years to come by the people closest to you. Can you imagine the expressions on the faces of your parents, grandparents or bridesmaids when you present them with a book of treasured memories from your day? Like I said previously – unmatched! Memories will fade – but they’ll last a lifetime through pictures.
