Everytime I receive an album in the mail I am excited to take a peek to see how it turned out and every time I am not disappointed. It is even more fun to bring the album to the couple and see their first reaction when they unwrap it. Even though they choose the images for the album and see the album design before I send it to the album company it still is a great feeling to hold the end result. They usually want to see it over and over again.
I strongly recommend an album to my couples. Yes albums come at a price and yes you will not look at it every day but just like with childhood albums when you do it is really something special. So when you go hire a photographer for you wedding consider an album. My album company is getting better and better each year. They now supply their fine art albums with gloves so that you do not have to worry that people will touch your album with dirty hands but keep your album nice and clean.
