The Unbound Wedding Album

What is an UNBOUND ALBUM? An unbound album is a collection of photographs that are intentionally chosen to tell your story in much the same way as a bound album. The photographs are printed on heirloom photographic paper and presented in a beautiful hand-made wooden box as an heirloom to be enjoyed now, and for generations to come.

Why choose an unbound album? When we choose not to bind the album into a book, you keep the freedom to hang some of the images on your wall, or gift some to a friend. You cherish your story one moment at a time. The box that presents and stores your memories is not just packaging, it is part of the story – made of hardwood, expertly dovetailed and assembled, with a hand-rubbed finish.

We believe strongly in the beauty and longevity of printed images and highly encourage our couples to print ALL the images from their wedding for safekeeping. Digital files can be corrupted, erased, lost, or impossible to retrieve from outdated devices (how many of you could play an 8-track cassette nowadays?). Chances are that somewhere along the way in 10 or 20 years, those digital files will be gone. In comparison, a drawer full of professionally printed photographs could last 100 years or more.

The CLASSIC UNBOUND ALBUM is included with our Signature Collection Wedding commissions. 100 photographs will be carefully selected, printed, and presented in a hand crafted 7.5”x7.5” box. Also presented in your Classic box is a flash drive containing the complete collection of digital files, and three glass vials for you to collect and preserve some of your unprinted memories. (ideas for the vials: a bit of earth from the place you said “I DO” – a scrap of lace from the wedding gown – scrolled paper with vows or a wish for the future). The Classic Unbound Album can be added a-la-carte to any photography session and makes a great gift for parents & grandparents, please INQUIRE for pricing.
