Wedding Photography at Ingliston Country Club:
Kirsty & Bryan’s Wedding Album

Lots of albums coming and going from the home studio at the moment so thought it was about time I started blogging a few of the designs. So, first up, I’m delighted to share a few images from Kirsty & Bryan’s album that the guys collected from me recently.

The wedding took place last August at the fantastic Ingliston Country Club and, from recollection, it was the first dry (well, almost dry) Saturday that we’d had in weeks :-). It was also the first of my three “wasp sting” weddings – yes folks, I got stung three weddings on the bounce!

Kirsty & Bryan went for a square 35cm x 35cm album from my suppliers, the wonderful Graphistudio. They opted for the every popular “crystal glance” cover to which I added my own custom made floral design around the selected image, all topped off with white leather back and spine and housed in a complementary white design box.

Here’s a few shots of the album itself followed by the full set of page proofs – hope you like.

Wedding Photography at Melville Castle:
Emily & Alastair’s Wedding Album

It’s been a while since I’ve posted up any new album designs – not that I’ve not been designing any albums; on the contrary – there’s been so many coming and going that our UPS courier might as well move in! No, as usual, just a case of being so so busy to post anything up, so putting that right today.

I shot Emily & Alastair’s wedding back in May and the guys, having originally booked me for a digital package, decided upon seeing the images to upgrade and add one of the fantastic Graphistudio albums. The lab had an offer on at the time so we ended up going for a pretty size-able 60 page, 40x30cm landscape album. The guys opted for the silk cover with maple back & spine in anthracite grey, and all this topped off with an accompanying maple sleeve and a c couple of half sized parent albums.

I know I keep banging the drum about the Graphistudio albums but I make no excuses for that – the quality and range of product these days is outstanding – take a look yourself at their website to see what I mean :-).

Anyway, here’s a few shots of the album itself that I took before delivering the album, along with the proofs of the page layouts.

Wedding Photographer Stirlingshire:
Aimee & Joff’s Wedding Album

I have another wedding album design to share with you today guys. This time, it’s from Aimee & Joff’s wedding at the fabulous Dunblane Hydro at the back end of last summer. The guys already have the album safe in their hands but, as usual, I like to share the design with you just so you can see the variety of the albums that I design and also to get a feel for the imagery across a full wedding day.

All my albums are now supplied solely by Graphistudio in Italy and I’m continually blown away by the quality they produce, and not forgetting all the amazing new designs they come out with – it’s even been muted that they will be bringing out a range of tartans to adorn the back and spine of the album, so watch this space! Aimee & joff opted for the very eye catching silver metallic cover with just their names and the wedding date. And, as standard, all my albums now come with a briefcase in which to hold the album perfectly – something I’ve only recently added for you lucky people :-).

Anyway, enough waffling, here’s the proofs for the album. Please do leave a comment or two at the bottom of the post as it’s always very much appreciated. And, as a new little extra, each and every one of you who leaves a comment, will be entered into a monthly draw to win a portrait shoot worth £75.

Plus, what would be really fantastic, is a “Like” on my Facebook page as it’s always great to get new people on board and it’ll keep you bang up to date with what I’m up to.

Wedding Photographer Troon:
Karen & Will’s Wedding Album

So guys, hot on the heels of yesterday’s post, today I have another wedding album to share with you – this time, it’s the proofs from Karen & Will’s wedding last year at St. Mary’s Church in Greenock and then on to the Lochgreen House Hotel in Troon for the reception. Honestly, there’s been so many albums coming and going of late that the TNT courier will probably make it onto my Christmas card list next year!

As I’ve mentioned previously, and no harm in mentioning again, all my albums are now supplied solely by Graphistudio in Italy and the quality of the finish is amazing. Karen & Will chose a varnished cover for their album in metallized green (presumably to complement the colours on the wedding day – slap me down if I’m wrong guys). I’d not ordered one of these covers before but it looked fantastic so another one to add to my own samples.

Anyway, here’s the proofs for the album which I hope you like. Please do leave a comment or two at the bottom of the post as it’s always very much appreciated. Plus, what would be really fantastic, is a “Like” on my Facebook page as it’s always great to get new people on board.

Wedding Photographer Falkirk:
Shonagh & Andrew’s Wedding Album

Seriously well behind with blogging at the moment – in context, let me see, I have six weddings, one (soon to be three) pre-wedding shoots and half a dozen albums to blog for you. So, trying to put that right just now and today, I’m really pleased to share with you the album design from Shonagh & Andrew’s wedding at Glenbervie House earlier last year.

All my albums are now supplied solely by Graphistudio in Italy and I’m continually blown away by the quality they produce, and not forgetting all the amazing new designs they come out with – it’s even been muted that they will be bringing out a range of tartans to adorn the back and spine of the album, so watch this space! Shonagh and Andrew opted for the steel grey leather cover with a die cut image insert and, not having ordered one of these before, I’ve got to say that it was beautiful…very classic – need to get myself one as a sample methinks. Also, I really need to start taking some photos of the albums before they leave me so you can get a feel for what they’re like…note to self. The guys also ordered a couple of half size parent albums and, as a free gift from the lab, also received 30 “Mignon” books – tiny 6cm x 4cm copies of the main album, perfect for gits…and yes, that was centimetres and not inches…they really are that small.

Anyway, enough waffling, here’s the proofs for the album. Please do leave a comment or two at the bottom of the post as it’s always very much appreciated. Plus, what would be really fantastic, is a “Like” on my Facebook page as it’s always great to get new people on board.
