You’ve decided to become a wedding photographer. You’ve chosen a profession that requires many different…
Even in today’s digital world with all the advancements and technical wonders that bring, there are some real-world things digital cannot replace. In our opinion, a wedding album is one of those things. A wedding album is to be treasured and cherished for years and is a keepsake that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Until you hold the photos and album in your hand, you simply will not experience the true joy that printed memories can bring to you and your loved ones. Wedding albums, once the preserve of the rich and famous, have been enjoyed for years by millions of people all over the world and we’ve listed some great reasons to buy one, as well as highlighting our best-selling styles and top albums.
Why should you get a wedding album?
Create a wonderful story of the day
From waking up, getting ready, arriving at the wedding venue, tying the knot, and then celebrating afterward, a wedding photographer will capture every moment in fantastic quality. There is something special about choosing the photos to go in the album to tell the unique story of the day.
Something tactile and tangible to look at and remember the detail of the day
Once the dust has settled on the special day, memories can begin to fade so what better way than to get the wedding album out with family and friends once in a while to remember and reflect. Something the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us is that taking time out to remember special occasions is priceless!
Guard against technology changes of the future
Heraclitus of Ephesus coined the phrase ‘The only constant is change’ in 500 BC. The pace of technological change these days is quick! BetaMax, VHS, CD, MiniDisc, DVDs, etc. all become obsolete over time.
One thing that has not changed is that the printing process stands the test of time.
Provided you get your album printed professionally by a professional photographic lab using the best printing press technology and photographic papers, your album will last for generations to enjoy.
You can build your wedding album your way truly unique to you
The choice of albums is almost endless, meaning you can have your album your way. Sure there are best sellers – read on to find out what they are – but you can have pretty much whatever you want!
Great gifts for family and friends
What better gift to give a close loved one or special person than a memento of the special day for them to cherish and remember for years to come.
Which wedding album should I choose?
There are so many choices these days that we thought it would be helpful to list out the styles and options available from Colorworld.
These prints are photographically printed meaning you can be assured of lasting quality for years to come. There are an abundance of cover options from genuine leathers, photographic covers, linens that are truly customisable to the level of detail you require. These albums usually have a mixture of print sizes which means you will want to turn page after page.
The page is printed as a full spread, allowing the image to span across the left and right pages without any gap in the spine.
Available in sizes from 7”x5” up to 16”x12”, with either single thick or double thick pages. Using professional photo paper from Fuji Film, you can choose from either standard Lustre, Gloss, or Pearl paper, or Enhanced Matt paper from Permajet using inkjet technology. Either process will produce the highest quality of print possible for your client. Custom UV Printing on the album cover can be added for personalisation. Comes complete with a black presentation box.
Again with the same full range of covers as the Digital style albums, the Matted Albums adds an extra dimension by adding a thick card matt over each page, making it more like a traditional album, but with a modern feel.
Available in sizes from 12”x9” to 16”x12”, the matts can be either a white stucco (slightly textured) with white core or a black linen textured matt with white core. Printed on professional photographic paper from Fuji Film with Lustre, Gloss or Pearl papers. Comes complete with black presentation box.
