Wedding Photography at Glenbervie House | Maria & Grant’s Wedding Album

As the year draws to a close, I’ll be sharing quite a few weddings and wedding albums here on the blog, and today I’m delighted to be kicking off with a look back at Maria & Grant’s wedding at my local venue, Glenbervie House, back in April. I wrote an article about the wedding back in May and, for those that are interested, you can find it here – but today, it’s all about their wedding album.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for a classic white distressed leather cover with raised varnish printing, bound in the very stylish grey & white woven spine. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in white cloud leather…very nice 🙂

Wedding Photography at Airth Castle | Gillian & Michael’s Wedding Album

Back in April, I was up the road at one of my local venues, Airth Castle, to shoot Gillian & Michael’s fabulous wedding day. And, a few weeks ago, I was delighted to be delivering their wedding album to them…by the way, if you want to see the blog post from their wedding day, you can find it here.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for a combination that I hadn’t actually done before – a light grey suede cover with picture inset, bound in the very stylish grey woven spine. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in black cloud leather…very nice 🙂

Wedding Photography at Dundas Castle | April & Callum’s Wedding Album

Back in March, I shot the wedding of April & Callum at the very wonderful Dundas Castle and recently, was delighted to deliver their wedding album to them. The guys had come to the home office/studio a coupe of months back to make their choices for the album, making full use of the lab’s new “swatch box”…although to call it that seems to sell it short a little, as it’s totally stuffed full of all the many swatches and samples that then;ab have on offer when it comes to finishing your album just the way you want it.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover complete with a light violet cloud leather binding. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in light violet & ice grey cloud leather.

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 The Parsonage | Jordan & Mark’s Wedding Album

Now this, guys, I am totally delighted to be sharing with you – my latest album design that I sent on it’s way recently to Jordan & Mark featuring their fabulous wedding day at The Parsonage, one of my local venues and one that’s fast becoming one of my favourites :-).

It was great also to receive a very timely review from the guys once they had received their album…

“We have just received our Wedding album and we are totally in love with it. Our photographs are so natural and really capture our day perfectly. We love our ‘show stopping’ photographs with beautiful scenery & light effects that we wouldn’t even have dreamed of having in an album. We have so many favourites has made choosing one for our wall almost impossible. Mike was everything we were looking for in our photographer; professional, unobtrusive, friendly, approachable from our first message to receiving our album. Can not recommend him enough!

Wedding Photography at Altskeith House | Heather & Chris’ Wedding Album

Wedding albums coming and going thick and fast at the moment and one of the latest to head out the door was from Heather & Chris’ wedding day at Altskeith House last December, which was to be my first visit there and what a stunning location it was on the banks of Loch Ard :-).

Such is the range of materials and colours available these days, Heather & Chris dropped by the home office/studio one evening in July to look though all the options and make their choices, making full use of the lab’s new material swatch box.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover complete with a lilac leather binding. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in silver and lilac linen.

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.
