A wedding album is probably one of the best investments you can make besides the photographer themselves. I know we live in a digital age where everyone is offering the the files as part of their packages however, think about 30 years from now. Do you want to tell the story of your wedding day by pulling out your DVD or Flash Drive (if those will even exist in 30 years)? We will talk about digital archiving photos another day because that is a whole blog post in itself, ha ha!

Here are the top 3 reasons you should order a custom wedding album from your photographer:

1. QUALITY PRODUCT: Your photographer has likely spent hours/days/weeks on finding beautiful wedding albums that show off your gorgeous wedding photos.  Places like shutterfly just can’t offer this type of quality and most professional album companies offer amazing warranties for a lifetime on their products.

2. CUSTOM DESIGN: For the same reason you hired your wedding photographer, you’d probably love their wedding album designs as well. Photographers have an eye for telling the story.  They are also going to be able to tell you what looks good together. Anyone can slap a bunch a photos on a page, but to tell your love story in a beautiful design is ART!

3. FOREVER YOURS: When you have a wedding album custom designed for you its there for it to be enjoyed! Most wedding albums today are created to be out on your coffee table or displayed in a gorgeous book shelf. These babies are meant to be looked at today, tomorrow and 30 years from now!  When you are old and your grandkids want to see your wedding photos, do you want to pull out your DVD or do you want to have a stunning wedding album that tells your love story from the start!

This week JM Photography delivered a gorgeous 12X12 wedding album to Mike & Nicole and a lovely 8X8 parent album. They chose to go with a beautiful gold metallic leather and branded their names into the book. For a little variation they chose separate cover photos for their album and their parents. I am so in love with how they turned out!!

I had a beautiful newborn session with miss Isla Pronounced (EYE-LA).  Mom and dad wanted a very organic simple session centered around whites, creams and tans.  As you see from my website I love to incorporate color but I also love the organic look too.  This was a beautiful example of organic done well.  Miss Isla had the yummiest, creamiest skin tones.  She was just over 3 weeks old, so although she didn’t sleep too long for her session, we got some amazing family images that were so candid, raw and beautiful. Kaii, Isla’s big brother was just a little ham and really liked the monkey’s in my camera.  I can tell he is going to be a great sibling to Isla!

Isla’s mom and dad also brought some very meaningful and sentimental props to the Minneapolis studio as part of their photos with their new baby girl.  First, they brought a gorgeous wood trencher bowl from Cabo, Mexico where they were married and a cowhide rug that was a statement piece in their home.  These items really personalized their session and will look amazing displayed in the new home they are currently building!
