Sharing photos is way easier than it used to be.
I remember when I was a five-year-old flower girl, sitting for my portrait for my aunt’s wedding in the poofiest dress you have ever laid eyes on, thinking that I couldn’t wait to see pictures when they came back. Back in 1994, there wasn’t a Facebook, or a Twitter. We didn’t store photos in the Cloud and we certainly didn’t text them back and forth to each other. This was pre-digital and photos were something that families gathered around and swooned over. When my aunt’s photos came back, I distinctly remember oohing and aahing over the velvet of the interior of the box, the brushed silver of the album cover, the crisp edges of the mattes. My grandma told me to be careful to not touch the actual photos, because the paper was special, and the oils in my skin could damage the print. I was in awe.
Fast forward 25 years later and sharing photos is WAY easier. We download and upload, sending photos hundreds of thousands of miles in about five seconds, and in that convenience there is something lost. Families don’t sit around albums anymore; we don’t even sit around screens. “I’ll send it to you,” is something that is uttered daily…and while I LOVE this convenience, and cherish how easy it is to share memories, there’s just something about sitting with your loved ones and reliving the day the old fashioned way.
Your parents want to remember your day, too.
Giving this some further thought, I realized that not only do my couples want tangible photos of their wedding day, but their parents do, too–and the One + Two™ Album Collection happened. I wanted to be able to provide a set of albums to my couples–one “master” album and two smaller companion albums–so that couples could gift photos for their parents to treasure for years to come.
The Couple’s Album
The couple gets the tour de force: a custom-designed layflat album filled with photographs from their wedding day. With eight fabric colors to choose from for the cover, this album boasts classic appeal and archival quality. The size–a 10×10″ album with 100 pages–is perfect for reliving memories.
The Parents’ Albums
Parents receive the same quality at a smaller size: 8.5×8.5″ albums with 50 interior recycled pages. Couples can elect to match fabric and covers or make each album completely different. These albums are the perfect way to thank those who helped make the day so special.
The One + Two™ Album Collection can be added to any package.
While the One + Two™ Album Collection is featured as part of the Royal Celebration collection, it can be added at an additional cost to any collection available, and multiples of either album can be added upon request. We pride ourselves on offering collections that can be customized and tailored to you; just as no two weddings are the same, no two collections are the same!
