I love getting parcels in the post! Especially when they are new sample albums that were long overdue (on my part, not the album company!). You may recognise these weddings from the blog – it’s so lovely to see them in print and bound so beautifully in these two different album styles.
The first is a 12×12″ navy faux leather album with a design printed on the cover – I love that you can have freedom with cover design like this, and it’s a great finish for an album that you want to be a little bit contemporary, but not have a photo printed on the cover. On the inside is matt photographic paper on thick board, so the pages are stiff and weighty. Handy for durability and not getting fingerprints on your wedding photos! The faux leather has a subtle grain to it, giving an authentic texture, but there are genuine leather options too. It comes beautifully packaged, wrapped in protective fabric and placed in a black leatherette presentation box so keep it clean, safe, and dust-free when you’re not showing it off.
The second album is a 14×10″ plum fabric-covered book with laser etched names and date. It so happened that there was a perfect colour to match this wedding, but there are lots of other colours available, and other cover styles too. The box for this one is also fabric-covered to match the album, and strong too. This is a Fine Art Album, which uses art paper instead of photographic paper, so it’s a softer finish while still keeping the images very crisp – perfect for vintage weddings and more natural styles. There are so any ways to lay out your album – using full edge-to-edge, keeping white borders and spacing your images, or a mix of the two – and you can have a fine outline to frame your images, or keep them simple and clean.
These are just two of the many options for wedding albums, so whether I am photographing your wedding this year or beyond, or your wedding has long past and you haven’t got around to creating your own album, get in touch to find out more and get your memories of your wedding day gathered into one unique book.
