Chet and I got married a shocking seven (!) months ago. My, my how time flies! I posted about a bajillion Facebook albums when we first got our photo files. We also made books with some of our favorite snaps for family members. But now I’d like to finally tackle something for ourselves.
So, I’d love to know, what did you do with your wedding photos? Did you curate a collection of the best and make a book? (Websites like Artifact Uprising and Pinhole Press have stellar reviews!) Did you make a massive album to stow on your coffee table? Print stacks and stacks for a shoe-box labelled “WEDDING”?
And what about for displaying on your walls? We have a three-photo picture frame in our hallway that displays 3 of my faves. Do you have larger prints hanging on your walls somewhere? Tell me everything!
I’ll be honest, part of me wants to completely shirk the idea of a printed-on-the-page photo book in favor of placing each individual photo in an album like this one. Is that crazy!? I love how beautiful the wedding books are with their lovely spreads and high-quality paper. But I’m also the kid who would haul the photo albums up from her grandparents’ basement every chance she got. The pages crinkled in that plastic-y way, the bindings creaked. The weight of all those photos and memories rested heavy across my thighs.
Wouldn’t it be kind of cool to tie the physical representation of one of the most important days of my life to all those other albums–filled with births and birthdays, family vacations and Christmas mornings?
Anyways, I am nothing if not the MOST indecisive person on the face of the planet, so PLEASE–tell me what you did with your wedding photos in the comments below!
P.S. What’s that? You’d like to SEE my wedding photos!? You’re in luck…

Note: We are lucky beyond belief to have so many beautiful images from our wedding weekend thanks to Sur La Lune Photography. Even if they weren’t our BFFs I’d be obsessed with their work. Have a look for yourself!
