A few years ago, photo albums were the only way to view our photos. Do you still feel excited seeing your old photo albums? Looking back at our childhood adventures, we can see that they are all preserved in photo albums. We would go through the photos we took, hoping for a few good ones, and then make albums as a labour of love. Prom pictures, baby pictures, high school pictures, senior portraits, and so on would be hidden in a box if they were not affixed to an album or framed on the fireplace mantel.
Nowadays, things have evolved. We have social media like Instagram, Facebook and more where we can upload pictures and scroll through our timelines to see the photographs whenever we wish.
But whenever you wish to go back in time and relive that moment, would you like to scroll back? Or will you prefer to sit comfortably with a photo album? A photo album is far more valuable than a digital photo. It grows in worth with each passing year.
Below are a few reasons to ditch modern technologies and buy a fine art album.
- Photo albums are an invaluable investment
Today’s modern photo album is a masterpiece of art. Forget about those stale, yellowing photo albums that were popular a few years ago.
Photo albums now have various covers and beautiful layouts. Some available album covers options include wood cover, silk cover, acrylic cover, metal cover, genuine leather cover, canvas cover and many more.
You can choose the colours that match your wedding photos or any other photographs in your album. The list of colour options is never-ending. You can choose any colour you like and use that in your album. Some examples include Burgundy, midnight blue, black, dark chocolate, petal pink, buttermilk and many more.
Not only that, but it’s simple to take out a photo album from the cupboard and enjoy the memories whenever you wish. Consider technologies that were used 15 years ago. Suppose you possess a VHS tape, accessing that technology is now very difficult. Consider what would happen if the concept of a USB drive became obsolete! You may be unable to access those priceless memories. But what about an album? An album lasts forever. You do not need to charge an old photo album; you can merely open it and relive your precious memories.
- Photo Albums narrate a Story
Hanging a single lovely portrait highlights a precious minute. On the other hand, a photo album narrates the story of the whole day. From the enjoyable moments with the bridesmaids to the ultimate dancing scenes on the dance floor, a photo album allows you to relive the moments of your wedding day. And don’t forget that a photo album isn’t just for weddings! Imagine showing your children the photos from your first photo shoot or family session when they are older! Keep the laughter and fun from your senior photo session to give to your grandmother when you graduate. An album showcases the details which are an essential part of your day.
- You can design photo albums as per your preference
There are numerous ways to personalise your photo album as per your likes. You can choose from 13 different sizes (6*6″, 16*12″, 10*10″ and many more), four varieties of papers, print cover textures and many more. From art print paper to canvas print, ivory print, pearlescent print, and even more—your album will be a work of art. Not only that, but you can also select the paper thickness, linings, gilding and more. Parent or companion album options are also available.
- Albums stay with us forever
All of us believe that our social media platforms will be around forever. But what if Instagram altered its photo retention settings? Where will your photographs be in ten years? In twenty years? While technology is continuously evolving, a photo album will last forever. Envision your great-great-grandson discovering your wedding pictures on a USB drive a hundred years from now. Are they going to enjoy those photographs? Now, imagine they come across your wedding photo album. They could instantaneously enjoy those memories and feel a link to the past. A good album will never go out of style. When properly cared for, photo albums could be treasured for a lifetime.
Turning through pages of precious memories could be far more rewarding than merely scrolling through a device. The process of making a photo album can also be special as you can personalise it according to your likes. Making and looking through photo albums could make those memories more meaningful.
