Let’s face it: how many times we looked at those wedding photos from our parents wedding and who knows how many more, we will grab their album, that smells of aged leather and paper, trying to imagine those moments when we were not there, looking for mom and dad when they were young …
Unfortunately, today brides don’t always pick up their pictures inside a printed wedding album, for the false belief that it is more practical to get images stored in a DVD or on a USB pendrive only.
Sure, the room it takes is reduced and perhaps, even the costs of your wedding photography service, but how many times you will look at those photographs ?

We always offer printed products or custom made albums to our brides, making every single wedding unique, not only in memories, but also in the object that will keep them alive for many, many years to come.
We Invite our couples to choose an album that is not only beautiful, but also able to fit their needs for space; a large photo or a big size wedding album, are a delight to the eyes and to the touch, but if spaces in your home are reduced, better to choose a slightly smaller sized product, to prevent your album to end up hidden in a drawer instead of showing itself in your living room, ready to be opened whenever you want…
