Stephanie and Robert are one of those couples that I got to do “all the things” with over the past year or so. I photographed their Virginia Tech engagement session where we were surrounded by fall, their summer wedding this past August in Virginia at Dominion Valley Country Club, and a sunrise “day after” session about a month later for even more amazing fine art portraits, this time on film! Once all that was complete, I had the privilege of wrapping up all my pictures for them in an heirloom album they could enjoy for the rest of their lives.
I love nothing more than having the opportunity to create an album for my couples for many reasons. First, it allows me to continue working with them past the day I deliver their images which is always a special treat! But even more, it allows me to know for sure that they have printed their photos are enjoying them the way they were meant to be viewed! As a shoot and share photographer, my clients are given the printing rights to their images which means they have access to all the digital files to order prints, canvases, albums – heck, even t-shirts or coffee mugs – as they wish. But that means I also cannot guarantee they are ever taken off the computer. An album is, hands down, the best way to ensure you have these memories available to share with the many generations to come. And Stephanie’s choice of a classic black leather is one that will certainly stand the test of time.
In all respects, Stephanie and Robert are truly an ALP legacy couple and I continue to feel so lucky to have captured numerous milestones for them — I can only hope to continue capturing the love that is shared between these two incredible people in their many anniversaries to come!
