|Gee. I wonder why.|
For example our wedding album looks like this:
But! It does have 94 pictures in it. Which is a huge amount when you consider that the pricing lists we originally discussed with the photographer were based on rolls of film. Yes. Film. At 36 per roll the original plan for our wedding day was to have 108 pictures taken TOTAL.
The downside to the digital conversion, of course, was that our wedding was shot on an early DSLR. Which I'm guessing was less powerful than the camera on my iphone. So even the blowups in our wedding alum start to get a little blurry:
|This would be an awesome picture. If we weren't blurry.|
|348x232 pixles should be enough for anything you'd ever want, right?|
There's also quite a bit missing from the day. Mainly because photographers were still thinking analog. If you only get 108 pictures total those need to count. So you take the posed family photos and none of the candid ones that are so popular now.
|Most of our photographs are some variation of this.|
|Or nonsense like this. It's possible that our photographer was a douchebag now that I think about it...|
|Quick put all of the details in one shot! Don't want to waste film! Wait.|
|Are you impressed?|
|spot color makes the baby Jesus cry|
|And yet I love me some instagram. Go figure.|
So yeah. We got married at absolutely the worst time for photography. But you know what? It was the best time for US. We were starting our adult lives and we wanted to do it together. Completely. Married. And I wouldn't change that for all the shiny, modern, designed photobooks and full-sized digital images in the world.
