No this isn’t a sales pitch, it’s just something to get you thinking.
Ok so fast forward a few years, maybe you’re 60 years old. You’re having a well overdue clean up and you notice a box sitting at the top of your cupboard.
‘Oh gosh’ you think ‘that’s my wedding album, I haven’t looked at it in years’. So you sit down on the floor and slowly start looking through each page. You have tears strolling down your face and then you are in fits of laughter. Some other thoughts may include ‘gee I looked good back then, look at my legs’ and ‘gee I’ve forgotten what a handsome man my husband is’. You then call over your daughter who has quickly dropped by for the afternoon to help you clean, she has 2 children. She calls them over and you’re all sitting on the bedroom floor laughing and crying and having a great time looking through your wedding photos. Not only are you igniting your memories but you’re showing your grandchildren something that is part of them too.
Say you have your wedding images on a disk, yes you can sit around the computer and probably do the same as described above. But what happens when you’re 60 years old and computers don’t even have disk drives anymore? They might have something called a thingymegiggy thingy that doesn’t even know what a CD/DVD or USB is. I guess it depends on what Mr Apple and My Microsoft come up with in years to come. But in the transition of going from CD/DVD/USB to this new thingymegiggy thing you never had the time or you never really thought to take your wedding photography across to the new technology. Now you’re stuck.
I do offer my clients images on DVD as this is the current trend and reflects our technology here and now, and in years to come I’ll probably offer the thingymegiggy thing too but I will ALWAYS offer my clients a wedding album as I know it will last forever.
