The digital age of modern photography means that so many couples only ever see their wedding day photos in an online gallery. I have to say that I think this is a tragedy; PLEASE do something to print your wedding day images! Display them in your home by ordering framed prints, canvas, or heirloom-quality wedding albums. I strongly encourage investment in printed copies of your photos.
That said, my standard for initial delivery of a full collection of edited wedding photos is a USB drive. I want clients to order an album or prints, but I also get it that budgets don’t accommodate those types of investments right away. So in the meantime, I want you to get your hands on your photos as soon as possible so you can gaze at them over and over (and over) again. And even though the images inside are in digital format, at least a custom-designed wooden USB drive gives you something tangible that you can hold in your hand.
I wanted to start sharing ALL the goodies that are part of the Anna Delores Photography experience; I get pretty excited about packaging and branding. While I wait for new sample albums to arrive in the mail (so I can share album prettiness with you), here are the USB drives that are included in the Anna Delores Photography experience.
These wooden drives are engraved with the Anna Delores logo and hold all the high-resolution digital image files from a bride and groom’s wedding day collection. I just switched to USB Memory Direct for ordering these drives and so far, I am in LOVE.
Ordering prints directly from Anna Delores Photography ensures you’re getting the highest quality printing for your images, but having a USB drive also means there’s no limit to the personal use of your photos. I also keep a digital archive of all your edited wedding images, so in case the USB drive goes through the laundry (it has happened!), I can always send a replacement if needed. I also strongly recommend copying the digital files to another hard drive when you receive your USB drive, just as an extra safeguard against losing your images.
Many thanks to Stella Bloom Designs for the beautiful ranunculus I used to style these photos!
