Touch, Feel, Lose | Wedding Albums
Leather Wedding Albums. I’ve always wanted to include a Ryan Adams song in a blog post title, I just could never tie one in. And while this may be reaching, I’m going to attempt to relate it to wedding albums and prints.
One of my favorite memories as a child is looking through my stacks upon stacks of family albums and loose pictures. I could touch them. I could feel them in my hands. The smell of the photographic paper was a highlight of the experience.
How many of you have lost pictures on digital media? Your phone completely wiped or your computer crashes? You lose every picture. While digital certainly has its advantages, it will never replace the experience of tangible goods. You can’t hang a phone, or pass it down from generation to generation.
When I received Jamie + Matt’s Messenger wedding album, the smell of the ink and the feel of the leather in my hands is an experience that will never be replicated by digital media. The full grain leather will age in time and will certainly be a treasured family heirloom.
In short, print your pictures, order a wedding album, and listen to Ryan Adams!
