Wedding Photography at Forrester Park
Rachel & John’s Wedding Album

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.

Wedding Photography at the Ghillie Dhu
Taryn & Ewan’s Wedding Album

So, a couple of week’s back, it was great to see Taryn & Ewan again as they stopped by the home office to pick up their wedding album. The guys were married last year with a legal ceremony on Seacliff Beach in East Lothian, followed up by the wedding day itself at the fabulous Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh.

Wedding Photography at Arta, Glasgow ///
Fiona & James’ Wedding Album

On this fine evening, I’m delighted to be sharing another new album design featuring Fiona & James’ wedding at Arta in Glasgow back in October last year.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Young Books” with 54 pages and opted for the wood fibre finish on both the album cover and box, all topped off with some subtle raised varnish text and an inset picture inside the box lid…very nice :-).

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.

Wedding Photography at Airth Castle ///
Lynsey & Chris’ Wedding Album

Second blog post of the day and, this time around, I’m delighted to be sharing a new album design from Lynsey & Chris’ wedding at Airth Castle back in September last year.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  with 50 pages and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover with the beautiful grey woven spine. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in grey linen with raised varnish overprinting :-).

Wedding Photography at Kings Manor Hotel, Edinburgh | Natasha & Andrew’s Wedding Album

Finally today, I’m very pleased to be sharing another album design with you – this time, it’s from Natasha & Andrew’s day in the sun at the Kings Manor Hotel last July. Like a lot of couples, the guys added an album to their package after the wedding and this is the result :-). There really is no time limit on albums – in fact, I’ve just been contacted a few days ago for an album from a couple who’s wedding I shot in back in 2013!

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover with dark green leather binding to complement the cover colours. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in ice grey cloud leather and dark green raised varnish print:-)
