Hi, I'm Amber.


The Amber WATKINS Wedding guide

Some of my favorite wedding tips, tricks, and checklists to help you stay organized!



I believe that your wedding photos do not belong on your phone. I believe that your wedding photos belong in a beautiful photo album right there on your coffee table. So that your children and grandchildren can flip through it’s pages for years to come. I believe that photo albums are the absolute best way to remember and relive your wedding day. And here’s why…


1. Wedding Albums are an heirloom for generations to come

I believe that your marriage creates a legacy. It can leave a lasting impression on future generations by being a source of inspiration for your children, your children’s children, and so on… By preserving your memories in a wedding album, you open the opportunity for you to flip through the pages with your grandchildren someday and tell them the story of your wedding day. The beginnings of your love story with their grandfather. 


2. So your memories can be seen, touched, felt every day as you relive them in your hands, in your heart

I believe that the memories of your wedding day come to life when they are put into print. Scrolling through your photos in an album on your cellphone might be convenient, but it doesn’t hold a candle to physically flipping through the pages of your wedding album. You engage more of your senses by touching, feeling, hearing, and even smelling your beautiful piece of art – sending you back in time to the most special day of your life.


3. Technology changes rapidly

I think we all know how quickly technology can change… Less than 10 years ago, wedding photos were being delivered on DVD’s – which are quickly approaching obsolescence. After that it was custom USB flash drives – which now need an adapter to plug into newer computers. And you see where I’m going with this. Although we think Facebook albums and cloud storage is here to stay, we never know what the future holds. The safest and most timeless way to preserve your wedding photos is in a tangible album. 


4. Show off your wedding photos

What a great conversation starter to have your wedding album sitting on your coffee table or fireplace, just begging to be flipped through by all your family and friends that come to visit??


5. Wedding Albums are like a storybook

I believe that some of your favorite wedding photos should be displayed proudly in your home and on your walls in the form of framed prints or canvases – serving as a constant reminder of where it all began. Framed prints are wonderful at providing a glimpse into a specific moment, but wedding albums take it one step further. They tell the entire story of your wedding day. Each page and each photo holds its own beautiful memory. And flipping through it will be like reliving the whole day over and over again. 


6. Wedding Albums are a piece of art

Our wedding albums are made by KISS Books. Each book is a unique, handcrafted, labor of love. These albums are of the upmost quality, will last you a lifetime, and are quite literally works of art. The design and craftsmanship will leave you falling in love all over again, and feeling very proud to own such a gorgeous piece of art. 


7. Personalize your album

Every couple has a distinct style and every wedding is unique. That’s why you’re able to choose from a wide variety of options when creating your wedding album, including size, material, color, engraving, cameo photos, and more. Your wedding album can be a an extension of your love story, your wedding day, and your personality if you want it to be.
