Documenting Monumental Moments

When it comes to documenting special moments in your life you either pull out that fancy DSLR camera or bust out your smartphone to capture it. On October 11, 2015 I tied the knot! It was a magical day and we had the best photographer I’ve ever worked with (Vinh Nguyen Photography). He captured our day so beautifully (read a write-up of our wedding here) and every photo allows us to relive that special day.

But what about keeping those special moments close every day? That’s where photo albums and prints come in. After receiving all our wedding photos (there were 1300+ of them!) I downloaded the photos onto my laptop and started sifting through them. My husband and I figured out which photos we wanted to print and then I decided, why not have a photo album as a keepsake and to show those who come visit?

Let’s backtrack a little. After our engagement shoot, I was trying to figure out which website to use to order prints. Veronica had recommended I check out mpix.com because the quality of the photos were great when she received her wedding photo prints from them. So, I gave it a shot. Uploaded the photos and got the prints three days later and they turned out great.

That’s what I did. While Mpix is good for prints, it’s also great for photo albums, canvas prints, framed prints and more. They had a deal going on (you can always find a coupon for something online) and I created a great little 46 page photo album of our wedding, documenting things in order of first look/Ketubah signing, ceremony and reception. The cost of the book turned out to be only $57, which isn’t bad at all. It became pricey because we ordered about six copies of the book for family members, as well.

I am still waiting to receive my prints, but I can’t wait to find the perfect frames for our wedding photos. My husband and I are moving into a new and bigger apartment in February, so I’ll be sure to reorder a large print of this photo from Mpix again. Framed this time.
