In New England, the winter months traditionally mean less shooting, and more hibernating. I look forward to this time of year because it allows me to slow down and focus on the images I created throughout the wedding season. During the wedding rush, I am less able to sit with my images and create something meaningful with them. I have been designing a lot of wedding albums this winter, and thinking about how important each one truly is. While you will have all of your images in an online gallery, or on a thumb drive, the wedding album is special in that having one allows you to preserve your images in a way that tells a complete story. It is the beginning of your family heirloom. Your wedding album is what your children will look at throughout the years (AND proof that you WERE once young and care free, and DID NOT have wrinkles and grey hair!) It is what your children's children will look at. It is what you and your spouse will look at for many years to come, and remember countless moments throughout the day that otherwise could have been forgotten. In this day and age, we have access to a number of different album design companies. And while you can certainly get an sufficient album with many of the online companies, I encourage couples to order a fine art/photo art book. I have spent several years personally researching different wedding album companies, and have found the company that I consider to offer the best books around: Vision Art
At Vision Art Every book is printed on fine art, museum quality paper with vibrant and vivid archival inks. When you open up a Vision Art book you see a full panoramic display of your art. Because there are no cuts or gutters in the binding, your images display without any distractions. They print your creations on matte paper that is rated to last generations without discoloring, yellowing or fading. With Vision Art, you are creating fine art bound in a book.
Below are some photographs from my very own wedding a few years back.
