Taking a Cue from Electric Sheep: The Rising Tide of the Printed Image in a Digital World - by Mrs Twig

With our iconic vintage-meets-avant-garde photography style, we are firmly rooted with one foot either side of the past and present. When it comes to choosing products for your wedding photography, we offer two choices set just as parallel in the form of printed albums and digital files. 

Just a few years ago, the latter was the top choice amongst a wired generation. It had become the norm for images to languish on our phones and society seemed, in general, to have forgotten the the power of a physical photograph.

But, over the course of the last 18 months or so, and to the delight of photographers up and down the land, we’ve noticed a distinct shift back towards the printed image and, more specifically, photo albums. It seems more and more of us are taking a cue from Ridley Scott’s replicants and we are recognising the importance of tangible photographs once again (for those who don’t appreciate the sci-fi references, don’t worry, they are few and far between!)

THE POLITICS OF WEDDING FAIRS: How the Industry may be Hoodwinking YOU - by Mrs Twig

Politics and weddings probably aren’t two topics you’d expect to see coupled together in the same sentence (unless you are considering the fallout from sitting Auntie Jean next to cousin Frank at the reception when they haven’t spoken for 15 years). However, since becoming wedding suppliers ourselves, Mr Twig and I have realised that this industry is all about politics, cliques and inner circles that are more difficult than those little single serve sauce sachets to break into (I mean, seriously, could restaurants make it more obvious they don’t want you to use the condiments?!).

But, what does this mean for you, the client? Well, ultimately, you are in danger of being hoodwinked.
