ALBUMS, PARENT ALBUMS, AND GUEST BOOKS
A beautiful wedding album that tells the story of your relationship, and your wedding day, is an important family heirloom that I hope will be enjoyed by generations to come. Apart from my most basic collection, all collections include an album, or album credit.
Albums start at $1500 a la carte for a simple 9.5×9.5 fine art book or skinny album with thirty pages (fifteen spreads). Flush mount albums, bound in leather, linen, or silk, start at $2000 for the signature album and feature thick pages and archival printing on the finest photographic paper available, Fuji Archival Crystal paper. Luxe albums, featuring premium leather and specialty covers such as acrylic and printed metal, begin at $2500 and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
I love creating albums that tell the story of your wedding day through photos. Most collections include an album credit that can be put towards your choice of album or book.
The images below show a black leather signature album with the couple’s names in raised lettering. Jess and Derek chose to upgrade their album to twenty-five spreads to more fully tell the story of their day. A simple black album in the finest soft leather will always be classic. Raised lettering can be used to highlight your names, or wedding date, and gives a subtle, modern, luxe feel to your wedding album
The photos below show Nipa and Jordan’s 8×12 signature flush mount album in vibrant cherry red leather. The cutout on the cover is a great way to add a little more personality to your album, and this fun couple chose a cute portrait with a candid feel in black and white for their cover cutout image. The horizontal design of this album is modern and chic, however this style does not translate quite as well to the parent book size, so I generally only recommend it when matching parent books are not purchased. Nipa and Jordan upgraded their album to include five additional spreads.
Parent albums make great thank you gifts, and are available as exact duplicates of your main album design. They are usually smaller versions of the main album, with thinner pages and a choice of press printing (standard) or photographic printing (upgraded).
Press-printed books feature thin, flexible pages and silk covers. They are also available as an upgrade with custom wraparound photo covers. These books provide an economical way to display your favorite images, and they are offered as guest books and standard parent albums. I love guest books; as well as displaying your engagement photos beautifully, they are designed with plenty of white space, so that your wedding guests can leave you personal messages and best wishes.
The final photos below show a signature album in silk, and an upgraded luxe album in white leather. The cover on the signature album below is a gorgeous silk shantung in midnight blue. It is rich and textured, meaning it feels as good as it looks. The luxe album features the highest quality Italian leather in a creamy white, with raised lettering.
Thanks for taking a peek at some of my album offerings. I have many samples available to view at my home/studio, and would love to invite you over to see them for yourselves! Nothing beats looking through them and getting a feel for the sizes, shapes, and fabrics that you prefer!
