If you a) know me personally b) have ever heard me talk about photography c) have ever read this blog or d) all of the above, you know that I'm constantly touting the goodness of that which is physical. No, I'm not talking about hugs and kisses, though those are nice, too. Before I start prattling on like an unbearable old gasbag, let me get straight to the point.
In 50 years, when you're showing your wedding photos to the grandkids, you're not going to plug in a USB drive/DVD/floppydisk/hypermagicstoragedrive into your computer and pull the images up. First off, computers probably won't exist as they do today. Second off, what fun is that?!
Oh yes, my point. Digital files are wonderful, but this has nothing to do with that. I unconditionally guarantee that at some point in your life, you will want to hold those beautiful wedding images in your hands. Not on an iPad, not on a laptop, not on a desktop dinosaur. The moment you see your photos "in real life", without the glow of a screen behind them, your experience, your perception of them will change. I promise. It did when I held our wedding photos in my hands. It does every time I hold a client's new album in my hands. It's sort of a chilly, giddy, teary, magical rainbow coloured unicorn sort of thing. Sounds crazy, but it's true.
This Friday, we're proud to be the featured artist at the local Bainbridge Island First Friday Artwalk. We'll be showing a little gallery of carefully curated wedding images, all in print form. Of course, I used this as an excuse to drop a dollar or two on a ton of new products, which I'm very excited to show a sneak peek of here.
If you're around the island this Friday from 6-8pm, stop by Prettystick Beauty and say hello!
