Your wedding is supposed to be the most important party of your life and it's important to preserve the memories of the day. Sadly, many couples gloss over their wedding photos briefly and store them away where they may face damage and decay.
Luckily, you can keep your wedding photos in top condition with a few simple tips. From digital files to excellent storage, your memories will never go to rust and you can share the day for generations to come. Treat your wedding album gracefully for a keepsake heirloom.
Keep the Digital Copies
Most modern wedding photographers provide digital copies with their photo package. Many couples choose to display these pictures on social media for their friends and family to see; however, this option may not insure permanent storage and some guests may not want their pictures online.
You'll want to make backups of your digital images in safe storage, such as the cloud or on an external hard drive. Additionally, if your wedding photos were taken before digital technology, look to services that scan and send you pictures with high-resolution formats.
Make a Scrapbook
Scrapbooking is a fun way to get your pictures all in the same place and have a crafting day for you and your loved ones. You can all work together to decide what goes into the scrapbook and create unique papercraft designs for picture borders and more. Web services can also create a lasting scrapbook for you. Just pick out your favorite photos and let the professionals handle the rest.
Use Pre-Fabricated Photo Albums
Worried about spending more money on craft supplies and online services? Inexpensive pre-made albums simply require you to pick a themed book and slide in pictures that fit. You may want to read the details of these books so you're sure your photos are the correct sizes. Many of them have some light personalization, but still emanate a feeling of class.
Avoid Packing and Storage Pitfalls
Never store photos in stacks, or there's a chance they can stick together. Invest in weather-proof packaging and page protectors when putting together a wedding album. Some go the extra mile with a climate-controlled box or fireproof bag in case of an emergency. It's important to check your photos won't stick or they'll ruin the film.
Memories last a lifetime but photos can preserve them to show off your day. Take precaution with your wedding album to proudly display at home or take on your next big adventure. Congratulations on a lifetime of bliss.
