Importance of Print | Charleston Wedding Photography


The world needs more print than online galleries- here is why…

Growing up…

My mom used to scrapbook photos of my siblings and me! From the time we were born to monumental moments in our lives, each album tells a story. A story with my mother’s perspective and her handwriting, what is happening, and how she felt. So what does this have to do with the importance of print? Let me explain.

In an age of online galleries, convenience is great and all, but you don’t get the same feelings staring at a screen as you would holding a print or album in your hand.

Here are 3 reasons why printed photos are so important…

Importance of Print

1) Technology is evolving

Do you remember when CDs and Floppy Disks were a thing? Technology is continually evolving. Even in recent years, those who have had their wedding photos on CD’s cannot access their wedding or family pictures anymore. When you are reliant on keeping your photos in something like a USB or online gallery, you are taking a risk that in 10+ years, you may not be able to access your photos.

Your online gallery is never a guarantee. There is no way to tell whether or not an online gallery will still be around 10+ years from now.

That leads to reason number two why print is important…

2) Tangible

Prints and albums are one of the most tangible things that can provoke emotion like no other. There is nothing like holding a photo in your hand, and it quickly brings you back to a memory. Online galleries do not have the same effect. After the initial excitement wears off, your left with gorgeous photos sitting in a gallery, likely never to be printed.

I say never to be printed because life happens. Those times when you mean to print your photos, you’ll feel easily overwhelmed by the number of photos sitting in your gallery. Which do you choose to print? How do I even make a wedding album? Just the thought itself can be pretty overwhelming. But luckily, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

When choosing your photographer, make sure you go with one that offers printing services or designs albums! That way, you are able to have your photos forever! This leads to the last (and most important) reason why print is important…

3) Last for Generations

Last but not least, one of the biggest reasons why printing your photos is so important is that it lasts FOREVER! Now, I’m not talking about printing your photos from Walmart or Shutterfly. I’m talking about printing your photos on quality paper that can last for generations.

Why not print from Walmart, Costco, Target, Walgreens, or any of your big stores? Because the quality of photos is equivalent to McDonald’s cheeseburger. Yes, you can print pictures there, but they are also more susceptible to yellow as time goes on. Not to mention, those printers have a built-in filter, which will alter the image’s color.

When you invest in quality photos and have them printed by a quality printer, you are guaranteeing for your pictures to last for generations. Decades from now, you will be able to hand your wedding album to your grandchild and watch their eyes light up as they see photos of you on your wedding day. Moments in time captured that document one of the happiest days of your life.
