So, a couple of week’s back, it was great to catch up again briefly with Rachel & John as they stopped by the office to collect their wedding album. The guys were married at the Forrester Park resort last September and what a cracker of a day it was…scorching hot too (well, scorching for Scotland that is)…but, pretty warm all the same :-).
For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books” with 58 pages and opted for the crystal glance finish for the cover, complete with a sand coloured suede binding and a complimentary suede luxury sleeve to keep it all in. All the pages of the album were toned in a champagne colour in keeping with the theme of the day and all finished in the lab’s unique high definition printing.
A lot of work goes into the designing and preparation of an album prior to it being sent off for printing. All in, I can easily spend around a day and a half with the selection of the images, the initial design, making any changes the couple want and then finally, what I call my “signature” editing process on all the pictures contained within the album to make them look their absolute best for printing.
I’m a big big fan of wedding albums and I absolutely love to see your wedding pictures displayed in this way :-)…much better than on a computer screen in my opinion. Of course, I’m biased, but I do believe that I’m partnered with the best album company in the world, Graphistudio from Italy, used by the majority of top professional wedding photographers worldwide. Check these out…there’s so many ways in which the album can be customised in terms of covers, back & spines, boxes, colours etc, that apparently there are about 4 million different combinations in total!
Graphistudio also have a policy of “vetting” photographers that they wish to be partnered with, so you can be assured that you’re getting an album that just isn’t available to a large majority…how unique is that!
Anyway, here’s a few images of the actual album, along with the proof design for all of the pages.
Please leave a comment…I love to know what you think
Family & friends (plus anyone else who might stop by), it would be fantastic if you could leave a comment at the bottom of the post (using either of the comment box options) as I love to hear what you think :-). Also, if you really like this album design, why not give me a “Like” on my Facebook page to keep in touch with what I’m up to – would be great to have you on board!
