All the albums I offer are hand made in the UK with delivery times of about two to three weeks. Your album is completely customisable from start to finish - you control the size, paper finish, page quantities, cover material and colour, and finishing options.
Sizes available include 8x6 | 8x8 | 10x10 | 12x12 | 12x8 | 16x12.
Amount of pages (in either "Lustre" or "Gloss"): 20 pages (10 spreads) | 30 pages (15 spreads) | 40 pages (20 spreads) | 50 pages (25 spreads)
Large range of material and colour options are available for the cover.
All albums come in a smart black presentation box with a black paper book wrap. If you order a large album for yourself and two parent albums, each one of these books will come in its own presentation box.
Debossing is available at no extra cost. You could add your names, the date etc. on to the cover. This is how the debossing looks on the suede effect cover -please scroll down to view it on the padded leatherette hardcover.
With ‘Lay-Flat’ spreads you are able to enjoy your entire book without page breaks or folds. Larger images can be printed across the central seam as well.
You can choose how to tell your story -you can choose a brief memento with 20 pages (10 spreads) upwards to 50 pages (25 spreads). With smaller albums like this 8" x 8" sample parent album, having one or two images per page works well, but with larger albums it is lovely to have collections of a few smaller images on each page, too.
The albums are printed on Fuji DP2 professional photographic paper for the highest quality finish. Paper finishes include an almost matt "Lustre" and "Gloss" -this particulare album was designed with the "Gloss" paper.
The paper used is lovely and thick, the binding is of high quality and the corners are neat...
This is how the debossing looks on the padded leatherette hardcover (please see above for debossing on the suede effect cover).
I think it is always nice to have a think about the colours in your photos and to choose a cover for your album that goes with your colour scheme or single prints that you may want to frame.
The leatherette has a slight sheen to it...
You can choose to have your images on a plain white, borderless or include a few background images. Less is definitely more, but sometimes this can look quite nice -see above.
The spine of the photo wrap books is crisp and white. As with the other two albums, I was very pleased with the print quality and finish of the binding.
It is quite effective to have a few large images of key moments from your day, mixed in with pages filled with fun, natural and candid guest photos and pretty details.
The insides of the front and back cover are of a thick, textured black paper...
Can we decide which shots are used in the photo album?
Yes absolutely! And we can discuss how many pages/spreads you would like and decide together what amount of images would be approriate. Then you can narrow down the gallery of photos to your favourites.
What if we want to make changes to the album after you have designed it from the photos we chose; is this possible and is there a cost involved?
Once designed, you can view the design for the wedding album and changes can be made without additional cost on one occasion. There will be a 10% charge of the total album price for further changes (up to another 2). No changes may be made after final album approval as it will then go to the printers.
Do we need to decide if we want to include a wedding album in the photography package when we book you?
An album can be ordered at any point in the process and the cost is the same whether you order it before or after your special day.
Do we have to order the album through you?
Not at all: as part of all my wedding photography packages, you get full printing rights to the images from your day so you can always design your own photo book through your chosen printers.
