You hire a professional photographer for your wedding, daughter's sweet 16 or family reunion but pass on purchasing an album or prints. So how do you plan to remember those days in say 20 or 40 years? You may say, I store them on a DVD, USB Drive or you have them up on the web in a service like drop box or Microsoft's One Drive. Problem is, with most technology there are possible crashes that can wipe a hard drives clean, you can lose a small USB drive or DVD disc and you will never see those photos again.
If you are that type of person that will say just give me a DVD or a USB drive don't feel bad because you are not alone. According to a survey conducted by Professional Photographers of America (PPA) 67% of respondents store their images digitally on their computers, phones or in the cloud.
