Why should you consider the classic flush mounted or artisanal wrap album?
These albums are what would make me most proud to have if it were my album, that's why I chose them for my samples and offer them to you as well. Professional hand made albums are only available to photographers for order, and not the masses. There are plenty of DIY websites around to order albums but nothing as special as this. Every album is hand made. It's an art, not an assembly line. The materials are far more durable and luxurious than anything on the DIY market. Whether you choose to order through me or not, I strongly believe your wedding photos should live in an album and not your hard drive.
How many pages is right for me?
I offer my clients two options, a medium amount of pages or as many as the printer allows for that model. This offers the client to decide how choosey they want to be with what's included. If the client wants as many photos included as possible, they will want to opt for the full allowance. If budget conscious and happy to include only the best images, the medium amount is best for you.
Once we choose the album we want, what happens next?
Once I know the ratio and page amount for your order I will begin to create a rough draft using your photos. I put importance on what I feel are the strongest images and attempt to include an equal amount from the beginning to end of the day. A draft will be emailed for review. Two complete revisions are included in the price below, with as many or as little changes to the draft as desired.
