When the heavy box arrived from UPS, I was so giddy I nearly snatched it out of the man’s arms as he offered to carry it inside for me. What’s a big, unruly box when you’ve got adrenaline rushing through your veins?!
Why was I so excited? Oh, just a little 12″ x 12″, 60-page long sample flush mount wedding album, featuring our favorite images from Amber and Daniel’s gorgeous wedding, and a dazzling acrylic and textured leather cover, all handmade in Italy.
I’ll be honest: I was so excited that it was a little hard for me to get the packing tape off the box. But when I did, and when I got through all the protective packing materials and finally pulled away the black cloth cover, I was pretty speechless.
I love how this sturdy album feels in my lap: Substantial and important, just the way a wedding album should, and it feels luxurious and classy — also the way a wedding album should. Acrylic covers give couples the opportunity to showcase one of their favorite wedding day images, and look more modern and personality-driven than a traditional solid leather album. Not to mention that they’re simply beautiful.
The print quality and colors are superb, and since these photographs are printed on archival photographic paper — not book paper; the albums we offer feature top quality Fuji and Kodak photographic paper — and hand-bound into the album, this is an heirloom that will be able to be passed down from one generation to the next.
We favor a clean album design and lay out all our spreads to tell a story and be easy on the viewer’s eyes. The huge two-foot-wide panorama photographs really leap off the page, and there’s plenty of space to collage a whole series of details to show the character of each wedding.
Are we happy with our latest album offering? No. We’re ecstatic. We’re so pleased that we’re now offering this beautifully appointed acrylic album in addition to the leather and metal style we showcased a few months back.
Want one? We’d love to go over the options and help you start planning yours. When we shoot a wedding, we shoot it purposefully, so that the images will flow well to tell the story of the day beautifully when the photos are laid out in an album. And the results are simply breathtaking. If you’ve never seen a flushmount wedding album (and I hadn’t before I was engaged), you simply don’t know what you’re missing, or what possibilities are out there. This isn’t a book. It’s a family treasure in the making.
