Colgate Divinity School: Heirloom Album

Before they'd even seen their wedding photographs, Ryan and Stephanie knew they wanted to remember their Rochester NY Wedding for generations to come. Even more importantly, they realized they would need a way to do that; one that held a greater value than a drive of digital files.

Cue their signature heirloom album. They will be able to feel the feelings of their wedding day over and over again within the pages of this album. Not just now, but years from now when they're sharing their experience with their theoretical children.

There is something special about physically holding your memories in your hands. It's an experience, and a feeling you cannot recreate with a thumb drive.

This classic slate grey album will be what they turn to on their tenth anniversary.

The story inside is uniquely theirs, and we are so grateful to be able to tell it the way it deserves to be shared.

INSIDE THE ALBUM


Product Spotlight: Engagement Guest Book

Engagement sessions (in any season) are my favorite type of session. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that fact before. I love their peacefulness or playfulness and always their love - without the timeline of a wedding day.

We've photographed engagements anywhere from Letchworth State Park to downtown Rochester NY, and even in local coffee shops like Starry Nites Cafe or Joe Bean on University Avenue. Each one is unique and personalized to our couple.

But the one question we always get asked is - what should we do with these images? Answer: let's make a book!

But this isn't just any old Shutterfly book. Yes, it's a story of you, and who you are as a couple - but you can do more with it. One of our most popular ideas, is to incorporate the book at your wedding as a guest book.

These days, thanks to Pinterest, there are thousands of ways to display a guest book concept. Crafty people love coming up with new, never seen before ways to mark the occasion. But we love this book because it allows your guests to leave you notes, and answers to questions about love and marriage. Bonus point - there's no glue gun or mason jars involved, because we do all of the hard work for you.

It's an interactive guest book for your wedding. After the wedding, it's a cherished heirloom that you can safely keep alongside your wedding album. (And you don't have to find wall space to fit it into your home decor!) 

It shows not only who you are as a couple, but also how much you're loved by those who joined in your wedding day. So - what would you like to do with your engagement session photographs?

The Artisan Album: Rochester NY Wedding Photography

We have been working on this album, for a very. very. long time. It's our newest sample to an already awesome lineup of wedding albums.

So why did this one take us so long? Well, it's completely customized and there were soooooooo many options to choose from. And if you desire a top of the line album, you'll have tons of choices too. This particular Artisan Craftsman option features Bill and Stacy's Rock Ford Plantation wedding.

One of our favorite things about this new album, is that it's created to be long lasting, yet environmentally friendly. The giclee books are engineered with a green footprint in mind, which as you know, means the world to us (see what I did there?).

These albums are designed to serve our couples who want to publish an iconic, one of a kind, earth friendly wedding album. I'd show you all of the options, but it's really up to you to decide what style you love.

We can't wait to see these albums in our clients homes. We love them, and hope you will too.

Chris & Nicole: Spencerport Wedding Album

It's perfect timing. Just as our wedding season is getting underway for the year, we're delivering last year's wedding albums to our couples.

Like this album from Chris and Nicole's summer Plantation Party House wedding.

The matte photo cover and horizontal layout has been immensely popular this year. And as usual, the story inside tells of love - between the Bride and Goom, and for their whole family, some of which have sadly passed since their day.

I hope it will bring them joy to them to open these pages and relive their beautiful wedding day as their first anniversary approaches.

Thank you Chris and Nicole for letting us tell your wedding day story!

Welcome Mini Albums! Rochester NY Wedding Photography

Oh my goodness, I'm in love with this new album. We're calling it our "Mini" Album. Even though it might be a smaller size, (at just 10x7) it's uniqueness and beautiful design makes it grand.

It's new to our Art Catalog for 2017 and just makes the perfect wedding keepsake for the parents who supported your big day. It's a step up from our everyday storybooks, while not being an overwhelming. It's just the right size to include all of their favorite images from the day.

My favorite thing about this album? It's more unique than those boring old traditional parent albums. Check it out, you'll see what I mean.

Kate and Bert's Heirloom Album

Ok, this is it. I thiinnnnkkkk this is the last wedding album to be delivered to our 2015 wedding couples.

It couldn't be more beautiful. I love how the cover image depicts who Kate and Bert are perfectly. Fun, loving, and a little silly.

The story told within its pages is about a rainy day, a bride and groom who laughed instead of cried about it, and embraced every single moment of their day with their beautiful family and their amazing friends.

I'm so honored to have been a part of it all with them, and can't wait to watch their family grow!

A Classically Beautiful Album for a Nerdtastic Wedding

A Classically Beautiful Album for a Nerdtastic Wedding

And oh em gee, it did not disappoint. This 12x12 heirloom tells their nerdtastic love story perfectly from start to finish. Everything was planned so well, that it made our goal of photographing their beautiful moments a piece of cake, as well as a whole lot of fun.

Chelsea and Steve's Wedding Album: Simply Elegance

I don't think I've ever met a couple more excited to be married than Chelsea and Steve were on their wedding day. They wanted the day to be simple yet beautiful with the focus on two things. 1 - getting married and 2 - being with everyone they love. It was perfect.

Putting together their wedding album during the winter months brought back all of the warm, fuzzy feelings I have about their day. And I know, they will cherish it always. It's a simple design, but it tells the story of all the love that surrounded them beautifully.

I wish I could be there with them as they go through it for the first time. But since they live a few hundred miles away, I'll have to settle for a virtual hug and hopefully some smiley face emojis.

Enjoy a little peek into their album, leave some smiley faces if you like it too!  :)

FAQ: 3 Reasons Why You'll Love Our Albums

Yes, it will then take it's place on your book shelves for short while. Until the day that your baby wants to know what you looked like "back then." And then you'll relive that wedding day all over again, this time with a whole new perspective on life and time. We say it all the time, your album isn't really for you. It's for your children and their children.

A Photo Library | Wedding Albums and Books

Some people question the value of an album. Lisa & Shelly are not those people. These two amazing ladies and their wedding day can now be relived in many different ways.

Their 10x10 heirloom album tells the full story, and is built to be cherished for generations. But it's not practical to bring to the office. Enter: the brag book. A smaller book, perfectly sized to fit in a purse and take everywhere! 

So we created parent albums which are personalized to each parent, and a brag book of their Photo Booth images. Finally, there is a brag book, the perfect size for a purse, to keep on hand for easy sharing with friends, family and coworkers.

The album is such a special heirloom that they can pass down to their children, while the brag books are perfect for everyday enjoyment. If you love photos, you'll appreciate these books and albums too. 

Thank you Lisa and Shelly for letting us tell your story, and enjoy the books!

Gail and Greg's Wedding Album: Rochester NY Photographers

Gail and Greg's album is beautifully laid out between one of our most popular covers - a mocha colored leather with metal cameo image. It matched the natural feeling that their wedding decor portrayed. And the story the pages tell is one of beauty and more importantly - fun!

There's nothing like delivering a brand new heirloom to excited newlyweds. Their wedding day is now over, but their excitement about it hasn't yet diminished. It's all still so fresh in their minds.

So when they turn the pages of their album, we watch them relive every beautiful moment all over again. It's exciting to us. Our hope, is that in twenty years, they'll still feel the same emotions as they turn these very same pages.
