Why is an Album important?
Throughout history, prints and albums have served as an essential record of a family’s history. Nowhere else can a person find so many authentic photos of relatives and friends engaged in a day full of romance or significant events. By creating an album and printing your photos, you will be contributing to your family history by ensuring that future generations have a tangible record of how their family came to be over time. While it may be hard to imagine great grandchildren so far down the road, it is likely that they could one day have your album passed down into their hands.
But digital is the way to go, a USB is fine. Right?
It’s hard to believe that only 10 years ago the VHS video was phasing out and USBs hadn’t even had their big moment. The digital age is changing so quickly and means, while we are storing things on smaller and smaller devices and using cloud storage we actually make them less easily accessible and run the risk of losing them for our generations to come. Will you give your children logins to cloud based storage in your old age? An album is a beautiful, tactile way to view, share and remember that special day.
What's the benefit of using Album Registry?
Professional services, high quality prints and albums aren’t cheap and nor should they be, they need to stand the test of time. Album Registry is a simple and beautiful way for your family and friends to contribute to the memory of your special day by contributing an amount towards it. This not only shares the moment but shares the cost of creating your memories.
What are the Registry fees?
Photographer registration is free and always will be. With no on-going membership or subscriptions. Album Registry has a platform partnership fee of 8% of the final registry amount, only collected upon registry completion and includes all transaction and transfer fees.
