Hot on the heels of my last post, here’s another album design for you today guys. This one features Nicola & Mark’s big day at one of my local venues, Glenskirlie Castle, from September 2014. You see, the thing is, there’s absolutely no time limit on when you can get an album made up; Mark contacted me recently to let me know that they would like to start the process for an album, even though the wedding itself was almost two years ago. I always have a copy (well, two copies actually) of each and every wedding that I’ve ever shot, and that’s a lot of weddings now, so it’s a fairly straightforward process to get the ball rolling.
For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books” and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover complete with grey interwoven binding and all coupled off in a matching sleeve for storage. Nicola & Mark also added in a couple of half sized parent albums that are exact copies of the main album with a hardback cover.
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.
You can probably tell guys that I’m a big big fan of wedding albums and I absolutely love to see your wedding pictures displayed in this way :-). 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!
