Most of my wedding photography clients book packages with wedding albums included (although I do offer a coverage only digital package, where albums can be bought after the wedding if required).
Despite today’s digital society, no screen can come close to seeing wedding photography expertly printed, so I always recommend that couples have an album, or at least get some professionally printed enlargements of their wedding images. Looking at photographs on your IPhone screen is never going to beat hand-printed printed images, especially if they’re designed up and then bound in a unique, one-off stylish wedding album.
When I meet new clients, they will always want to see a full wedding end-to-end and samples of my work and my albums. So each year, I update a few sample albums to reflect my most up to date work in current album design styles and cover options.
I shot so many awesome weddings last year, it was tricky picking out just one wedding to use. But in the end, the combination of one of Kent’s most beautiful wedding venues – Lympne Castle – and Stephanie and Alan won out. Shown here is a 12 x 8 inch landscape Bellissimo album with a real leather tan cover.
I also decided to create a small 7.5 x 5 inch downsized album – these albums are used for parents albums but also come in handy as a great memento of your pre-wedding shoot. I decided to use Kerry and Glen’s pre-wedding shoot from last year as these two were so great together! I also decided to get slightly more funky with the album colour, so went for an apple-green leather cover.
These albums come in a variety of sized and shapes, and now have a large range of real leather colours available!
I’ll be blogging the weddings of these couples soon, so please check back then!
If you’re getting married and are looking for coverage plus luxurious leather wedding albums, please contact me to discuss your requirements!
