Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am a wedding and creative branding photographer based out of Pittsburgh! Here you will find just about everything you need to know about me and my most recent work! Thanks for stopping by!
We are passionate about encouraging not just our clients but everyone to back up their images, organize their photos and eventually get them off their computer and on their walls (or into photo books). Photos are the most incredible way to take you back to some of your favorite memories – they’re worth preserving! Today we just wanted to share some tips on how you can best organize, print and preserve your photos!
After a professional photo session or wedding, most online galleries provide several years of backup through the cloud, but we obviously recommend getting them off the internet and onto your computer.
For our wedding couples, we recommend investing in an external hard drive (like this one) and backing up your wedding photos on it – think of it as the start of your married life memories – use it as a hub for all your personal photos from here on out.
We have a personal external hard drive that we use to house our personal photos – here’s a look at how we organize the photos:
Print your images
While it’s great to get them off the internet and neatly organized onto your computer, we can’t emphasize enough how important we think it is to print your images! Get them off your computer and onto your walls.
Here are some way you can print your photos and what you can do with them…
How are you preserving your images?
First, let’s start with your wedding images. There are several way to preserve your wedding images, but we think the best way is to have an album. A legacy leather or linen bound album is an heirloom – something that is going to be passed down to your kids and their kids to look back on and see where your marriage – their family legacy – began! What a gift! We truly feel that an album is the best way to preserve your images – they won’t get lost or fall out of a photo book, they won’t fade or crinkle. Instead, they will be beautifully printed on luxurious, thick pages and hand-bound in a book to preserve the memories of your wedding day for years and decades to come!
We also love getting albums and photo books of significant life happenings – each of our kid’s births and each of their 1 year cake smash sessions have their own books and since then we have continued with general yearly family photo albums!
I hope this helps a little bit when thinking about how you can best manage not only your wedding photos, but the personal photos you’ll be taking for years to come!
