Custom USB Drives for Photographers

Updated on May 27, 2014

Why Photographers Should Use A Personalized USB Drive

A personalized memory stick has become the standard in wedding photography and quickly crossing over as a way to deliver senior photos. The packaging can be branded with the photographers name and wrapped in wedding party colors by placing in a simple white jewelers box with a lining and bow.

As technology advances the DVD is slowly becoming obsolete, no one wants to present themselves as "old school" or an amateur by presenting a product which may be unreadable in a few years. Some Macbook Pros don't even have DVD readers, how would that look when the bride and groom can't even open their photographs?

Custom USB flash drives come in handy for many occasions. These personalized memory sticks have become the standard for wedding photographers who sell digital packages to their clients due to large file sizes and are considered a premium method to present digital photographs.

Photographed My First Wedding

First of all I will say I'm NOT a professional photographer, but a friend of mine approached me and begged me to photograph her daughters wedding, Although I protested, I'm not a professional photographer, she persisted and told me "But Dawn, I love your photographs and we want documentary style photographs, I have all the faith you will do a fantastic job.

The wedding was a success, the photographs turned out better than I expected and after editing them in Lightroom I saved the best photos on a DVD as a sneak peek to be shown at the gift opening the next day. To my surprise I could only save 270 images on the DVD.

How in the world would I present the bride and groom with all their photographs in personalized fashion? I found several different versions of custom USB drives, the challenge was finding a 16 GIG option with plenty of space not only for the full size photographs, but for the custom designs and the personalized wedding video from the photos.

Presentation is Key

Wedding Photographs are the most treasured memories of the special day and deserve to be stored and presented with a special touch and presentation. I plan on not only engraving their name and wedding date on the USB but finding a special gift box and lining it with satin to place their photos. Hopefully this will become a treasured memory along with the photographs.

Custom Flash Drive Options

Flash drives are not expensive, they do not need to be bought in bulk and for most weddings a 4 GIG flash drive is plenty of space to store a standard wedding.

Check out the variety of custom photo storage options below.

Or, create a custom wedding video with the photographs to their wedding songs and place on one stick and the photographs on the other.

      Well i am not a professional but I do use a memory stick for saving many of my photos. DVD's are prone to losing data anyway in my experience unless stored correctly

      @Glenda Motsavage: I'm right with you on labeling USB drives, I currently have 4 in my purse and I can't keep track of what is on which USB. Thanks for the compliment on the my wedding photographs. I did have a really good time and the bride and groom couldn't take a bad picture.

      I love this idea - not just for weddings, but for any special occasion like vacations, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement parties, etc. And, with the engraving, One never has to wonder about its contents. Think I'll start using these to store my own digital photos! By the way... your Wedding photos were as spectacular as a professional photographer! Thanks for a great Review.
