WHY YOU NEED YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS IN TANGIBLE FORM

Wedding Photography Packaging Make & Stow Stamptitude

Anyone that has ever had a conversation with us about film will know how passionate we are about it’s timeless beauty and why we choose to capture our couple’s most treasured memories in this medium. When we first started shooting film, it changed the way we saw everything. It slows us down, to appreciate light and color like we haven’t before. Film is imperfectly perfect, it screams authenticity and that is so captivating. There is a romance about film that can’t be described. Shooting film requires you to search and look for a moment, and experience that moment while capturing it. It keeps you in the present, and the beautiful resulting images are meant to be printed for the future.

The Emotional Experience

I feel like in such a social media filled era, there is definitely a certain nostalgia for the physical. You can’t compare an image on a screen to a printed image. There’s something about seeing it on paper, having something physical in your hands, being able to touch it. Your wedding day is the most sacred, most beautiful, most indescribably unreal experience you will ever know, and we want you to experience that again every time you pour over your photos. Seeing an image come to print is seeing a finished piece of art, and it’s magic for me. Photographs are meant to be experienced, and I adore getting our couple’s images printed, lovingly wrapping them in linen and laying out their memories in an album, because I know that it is going to be treasured and brought out at family gatherings. When you purchase an album or an heirloom box filled with prints, you are buying the experience that your children, and grandchildren will have your memories. Some of the only items we have of my great grandparents are wedding prints, and i’m sure it is the case with your families. They’re one of the only items that will stand the test of time and will always be kept, because they’re a historical record that your love story happened. When you are viewing your photos on your computer, it all just becomes an image – and you miss the experience, the emotion and the story of the image. Touching and feeling physical photos is such a powerful experience and emotionally connects you to your memories.

Expertise and Eye

The wedding experience we seek to give you doesn’t simply end when your photos are delivered. As part of your wedding experience, we strive to deliver you a tangible product that is of the same quality and aesthetic as your wedding photos, as a continuation of your wedding day and memories. A timeless wedding album also isn’t just an assortment of images from your wedding day. It is a carefully curated selection of photos that tell a story – your story. When we capture your wedding in film, we are extremely intentional in the images we capture on your wedding day. We’re actually already going through your album in our heads to ensure that the images we capture can tell the best version of your love story in print. As your photographer, once we sit down to craft your album, we know your images back to front, and we have the artistic eye to know which images to pair up and which of your photos will best represent the emotion and events of your wedding day from start to finish. This storytelling can’t be achieved in the same way when you’re viewing all of your images in a folder on the computer.

Everlasting Memories

Simply put – you want to have your wedding photos in a form that will always be useable and viewable. Technology is constantly changing and evolving. A couple of years ago, wedding images were being delivered on cd’s and floppy disks, and so much current technology no longer supports those mediums. The method in which your digitally scanned wedding photos will be delivered might not always exist in the future, so having a tangible product from your wedding day is a wise investment for your memories. Albums and Heirloom boxes stand the test of time and are not subject to changes in technology, they are always crafted from archival paper and long-lasting inks, designed to last forever and ensure you have a beautiful heirloom to hand down to your families.

Katie & Kevin Carmel Mountain Ranch Wedding

Katie & Kevin, Carmel Mountain Ranch Wedding

Carmel Mountain Ranch Wedding Featured in Exquisite Weddings Magazine

Katie and Kevin were married on June 17th, 2017 at the beautiful Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club. With their day planned to perfection by Nicole Manalo. Their guests gathered together on a sunny afternoon in the garden for the sweetest ceremony. As they got to witness them become husband and wife under a romantic, greenery-covered gazebo.
 
Carmel Mountain Ranch has such an elegance to it. Which the bride and groom played into with their beautiful invitations by Pretty Little Papers. As well as their navy and burgundy color palette and the most delicate florals. The bride wore a delicate lace gown by Pronovias. Which she paired with the most darling shoes by Dolce Bleu. And her bouquet was lush but loose, with gorgeous peonies and roses in cream. With the colors pink and burgundy.
 
After the ceremony their friends and family were then welcomed into the reception. Which was bathed in the soft light of gold chandeliers. While it was all decorated with beautiful florals. All brought to life by the talented Jill of Layered Vintage. Dinner consisted of an exquisite spread of local sea bass and fillet of beef. And desert couldn’t have been more of a hit. As everyone enjoyed the amazing liquid nitrogen ice cream.
 
It was so wonderful to see their families come together and celebrate their love. All at a wedding they’d been waiting years for. We couldn’t be more delighted to capture their love story and be a part of the magic. And we were so honored to have their wedding published in the Fall Issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine!
