Wedding albums are still hugely popular with couples getting married and this makes me very happy as a photographer. There is truly nothing better than seeing my photographs in print, designed in a beautiful bespoke album. I know that it will be kept by the couple for decades and longer, and it will be the book that perhaps their grandchildren will look through. How amazing and special is that legacy of memories?
Well, another option when you’re choosing your wedding photography package are the ‘parent albums’. These are smaller duplicates of your own album which can be given as gifts to whomever you’d like, however mostly they’re given to parents.
They are an extra expense of course but are they worth it?
I can only speak of my own experience and to say that when I got married I did get parent albums done. They were the perfect gift for my parents and in laws. I often tell my wedding couples about how my mum loved hers so much, she carried it around in her handbag for a good year after the wedding and showed it to half of our town. No, really, I had people I’d never met tell me they saw my wedding album!! haha you got to love my proud mama!
The parent albums that I offer are 6 x 6 inches and come in a range of colours. They really are stunning, printed using the same fine art grade paper that is in the larger albums, and with the same care and attention.
