Why you should give a shit about printing your photos
Whoof, sorry to drop that on ya. But hot dang I seriously can’t stress enough the importance of albums or printing your photos so you can feel them. It’s like listening to music from a record player rather than out of your phone. When photos are printed they have a soul and you’ll be so much more attached to those memories than you ever thought you would. My friend asked me what is one possession of mine that I would never ever part with, and my answer was hands down my wedding album. Being able to open a book and see the way my babe looked at me with misty eyes on our wedding day is something I’ll forever love, and I can’t wait until I have kiddos to share it with.
I didn’t get my wedding album until our 2 year anniversary. Guess how many times in those two years we sat down at a computer to look back through our photos, or how many people came to our house and asked to see them? Zero. None. That’s so messed up. Then we got our album and started keeping it on our coffee table, and guess how much we look at our photos now? About every week. Everyone that comes over has to pick it up and look through them while smiling and joking and going “awwe!” That’s what your memories and photos are meant for.
Why not just print the photos ourselves at somewhere like Costco or Shutterfly?click to see the answer

Yeah, you can go print a crap $13 shutterfly album that will last maybe less than a year then get tucked away in a box in your parent’s basement until it eventually gets thrown away because the quality is so low. Basically, you get what you pay for. This isn’t just an album, this is an heirloom, and they’re created to stand the test of time.
Yep, you can print your photos at Costco (I do for my personal photos too) but for anything bigger than a 5×7, you’re basically going to waste that money because budget friendly places like that (and walmart, walgreens, etc) just don’t do high quality prints. Or even medium quality prints. They’re basically shit and the colors turn out terrible (you’ll look like an oompa loompa) so I recommend printing through my high quality printer so ensure your images colors turn out accurate and that the quality will last forever.
This depends on where you’re based, as my prints and albums are printed in and shipped from the U.S. Prints’ ground shipping is 3-7 business days + whatever the production times are for the products being ordered. Albums take longer, but are guaranteed within 4 weeks of me finalizing your order (usually sooner than that!).

You can do either! A lot of my couples will wait a few months until after the wedding buzz has calmed down and they have their images back. Some couples will wait to get one as a one year anniversary celebration. There’s no pressure to get one before the wedding, you can add it on at any time, even down the road!
