Do you recall being a kid and searching out the family albums, particularly ones of your parents and grandparents when they were younger?
I often recall spending hours pouring over my parents wedding album, noticing the dress and the love in the their eyes. The poses were a bit formal in those days but it certainly was my first appreciation of photography but also of the magic of weddings.
Imagine if your children only have a usb stick as a momento! Not to discredit the convenience of modern technology but there is something special and magical about a book with pages and photos you can touch.
I love a beautiful wedding album and even family albums.
Next time you consider whether to go a record that will stand the test of time consider how wonderful your old family albums were and the joy they bring to this day.
