USB Delivery Versus Digital Download (+ A USB Memory Direct Review)

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Technology is rapidly changing. In the 12 years I have been a photographer, I have seen photo delivery methods change from CDs to DVDs, to the near obsolescence of CD-rom drives in computers. While USB is the currently used form of physical delivery, there is a lot of debate among photographers whether they should ditch the drive in place of a download link.

What is the best way to deliver digital files?

USB Delivery Versus Digital Download

While I live my life very digitally, I still love the feel of a tangible item. There’s something special about receiving a physical item that is personalized to you. After so much time goes into creating the perfect images for my clients, I appreciate the sense of finality they receive when I can hand them a USB presentation rather than just sending them off into the internet. However, opting out of the USB drive and sending only a download link definitely has its place. (I actually offer options for both!)

Lethbridge Research Centre Wedding Album [Krysty & Kole]

Krysty and Kole, Lethbridge Research Centre wedding album

I decided I was due for a sample album update this year and chose to create a Lethbridge Research Centre wedding album out of Krysty and Kole’s wedding last September. Their wedding was a perfect fit to show potential clients as it starts with both of them getting ready at the Lethbridge Coast Hotel in the morning and has all parts of the day until their sparkler exit at night.

The full page spreads of the Modern+ Album were perfect for showing off large images of their ceremony at the Lethbridge Research Centre, full wedding party against the coulees, and sunset photos at Henderson Lake just before dinner.

Choosing the spine colour was a tough choice as their wedding had a few gray tones, but the natural colours on the cusp of autumn would look amazing in a brown. In the end I chose the dark brown leather spine and chocolate album bag to accent their photos. Thanks to the popularity of this album style and its really fast turnaround time, this year forward I’ll only be offering this style for weddings. If you’ve seen the other styles and still prefer those, they are still available by special request!

Joshua and Christina Lethbridge Norland Bed and Breakfast Wedding Album

I love big chunky albums like this! I could barely lift the box with this Norland Bed and Breakfast wedding album when the courier delivered it to me :) Christina and Josh had such a beautiful wedding at the Norland this summer and I loved going through the photos they selected as their favourites. The album beautifully covers the timeline of their day and all the happiness they experienced with their children, family, and friends.

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.

Jori and Shawn Castle Mountain wedding album

I love how this wedding album turned out! Jori and Shawn had their Castle Mountain wedding last summer and their Modern+ album perfectly captures the highlights of the day. With one of their main wedding colors being gray, the charcoal leather spine and pages complemented their photos. I just had to share some highlights of the book!

Lethbridge portrait photography images on USB with wooden box

I’m excited this year to be offering a new way to receive your digital files… custom wooden USB boxes! Now that so many computers are being produced without CD-roms, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for wedding couples and anyone purchasing their digital images from their sessions to access their photos afterwards.

This new box has an image etched in the lid and the USB drive itself is wood with custom engraving. It’s such a great keepsake for your images when you prefer digital!
