It is no secret that Lana and I are big fans of modern day albums. Pulling out that wedding album at family get-togethers makes it all worth it. Last week, we had family over for Thanksgiving and broke open the old family albums ourselves! What a great way to spend an evening sipping on a warm beverage and thumbing through old albums and telling stories.

Albums have changed a whole bunch. I still love the old albums where you slid-in the photograph or even taped down the corners. Just imagine all of the work that went into putting them together. By the way, if you have any old photo albums yourself, you should have them digitized. There are plenty of services online. Modern day albums do not suffer from the same problems, the materials used definitely stand up to the test of time. In the digital era, some brides and grooms are choosing to forego the album and just keep the digital files. The same problem exists, people just never look at their digital pictures. Viewing the photos on a computer screen at Thanksgiving just isn’t the same.

Lana and I were pretty excited when our wedding album vendor contacted us about joining their early release for a new product line that combines the Old with the New. Your wedding album box contains a large LCD screen (similar to a tablet) that holds a few videos and can present a photo slideshow. How cool is that?!? Now this does work on Thanksgiving with the family around! The Album & Box are the same amazing quality we expect. Lana customized this box with color-overprinting of our logo. We plan to bring this to a few wedding expos/shows this winter and see how it’s received. We suspect this will be a pretty big hit! If you’re interested in learning more about this album, please feel free to contact us and we can provide more technical detail. You can also learn more about our albums here.
