wedding albums {new portfolio}

I recently heard another photographer say “It is not only our job to make beautiful images for our clients, but to also guide them through to the end of the experience… the end being the final destination for the photography.”

When properly done, an album will tell your story.  You can pull it off a shelf, and instantly relive those memories all over again.   Photos in a box randomly tucked away often get lost or damaged.  A slide show on dvd and/or a video will tell your story, but who knows when technology will change, making that dvd/video obsolete?  And really, isn’t it just sooooo much better sharing on the couch, rather than having everyone crowd around the computer?   Wedding albums often become one’s most treasured heirloom.

I always tell my wedding clients… after the cake is eaten, the flowers wilt, your guests go home, and the dress is packed away, the photos remain ever vigilant in telling your story.

As luck should have it my newest sample album has just arrived, so I took some photos to help illustrate this important message to you.  Allow me to introduce you to the Photobook Plus.  My sample features a leather spine and back, combined with a photo cover (but it also has three other cover options, and loads of leather colors and textures to choose from).  Is it wrong to use the word yummy here?  How about gaga?  Yes, I’m definitely gaga for this album from Megan and Ernie’s beautiful Santa Barbara wedding…

This is a 12 x 12 inch album, but it also comes in 10×10, with a variety of cover choices. By the way, all of my wedding clients are now eligible for a free album design.

When I showed this album to a new client, she commented on nicely it opens up, so you can actually see the whole spread.  I, of course, totally agree with her!

Since I always photograph both in color and black & white, I love finding the perfect balance of these images when creating an album design.  Also, playing with size and isolating certain images, really allows me to highlight key moments of the story.  Check out this gorgeous panoramic from Megan and Ernie’s ceremony.   Loving it…

On a side note, could there be a more beautiful setting for this vintage Rolls Royce?  How many times can I say I love this?  Apparently, it’s a lot, because I love, love, love every page of this album…

Oh and if you are one of my portrait clients… look out because I’ll be posting some super fun sample albums for you in the near future.
