Recently I saw a picture posted on Facebook that said ‘What if this was all you had from your parents wedding pictures?’
The post hit me like a brick, because so many of my wedding clients want only a disc of the images. This has always been fine by me because albums, canvas and prints can be expensive and I understand the desire for the image files alone. At least we have them, right? We can deal with printing/whatever later.
Well as my years in the wedding industry have increased and my experience has developed, I know this is usually not the case. Life happens and personal projects from the past pile up and before you know it, it’s been ten years and you still haven’t printed a single frame. What if all you had was an old disc that your computer doesn’t recognize anymore? What if we don’t even use computers as we know it in the future?
Additionally, your [Lovato] Images are meant to be shared and showcased…from your hearts, with your eyes and throughout your homes. The Lovato Images goal is to the showcase the beauty of your story, so that you may share it with generations to come.
This is beautifully done through a custom designed book from your wedding or event. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent looking through my parents wedding album, cherishing every smile, every curl, every line of lace from my mother’s dress. Therefore I urge you to consider a book for yourself, and prints and wall mounts for your family. The importance of your story is bigger than digital files stored away somewhere…
