After photographing Maddy and Alex’s stunning vineyard wedding at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA earlier this year, I was so excited to continue working with them on creating an album to remember their perfect day. Maddy is another one of my gorgeous 2016 brides that knew right away she wanted to include an album in her wedding package; so much so that she even included parent albums for both her family and Alex’s family as well!
Parent albums are one of the best ways to thank your parents for being part of your wedding day – not to mention an easy idea, as well! I mean, think about it, after the big day, besides you and your new husband or wife, the people who are most excited about seeing your images are your parents! Most of them have supported you throughout your entire life and have waited anxiously for this day. So many parents pour themselves into your wedding as if it was their own, providing anything and everything from financial assistance to a hand with all those DIY projects and set up. Often we take this help for granted but it doesn’t have to be that way! An heirloom album is such a thoughtful and meaningful way to say thank you to the people who love us most. I promise – they will not be expecting it and you will absolutely blow them away! Even if it isn’t exactly post-wedding – say you wait until their next birthday or Christmas – they will just be over the moon when they open it and will cherish the album forever. I can almost guarantee it will its way to the center of their coffee table so they can display it for family and friends when they visit. Rob and I gifted albums to both of our parents and that’s where theirs ended up!
