Do we need a Album by Creative Cotswolds Wedding Photographer
Amber Marie Photography
Your wedding photography is one of the biggest investments you’ll make when it comes to your wedding. Of course I’m hugely biased because photographs are an incredibly important part of my life. But if they’re important to you too, I would recommend ordering a fine art album from your wedding photographer.
The Best of the Best
The benefits of ordering a professional album from your wedding photographer is that they have access to the very best of suppliers in the country (and even the world!). Meaning your design, from it’s layout to it’s materials, draw upon the experience of a seasoned pro in imagery and decades of research, product testing and experience from their supplier. Ensuring your photos and album will stand the test of time. Looking as beautiful as they do now, in the decades to come.
Tried & Tested
Because a huge part of your wedding photography is not only the pictures themselves, but the experience of viewing them. Having a beautiful fine art album, gives you an experience that you can proudly share with family and friends of all ages. As a child I loved looking through family albums, they gave me an insight into a life that I wasn’t yet around to witness and to people I didn’t get to meet. The (hilarious) sight of my Dad sporting an Afro is also an image I’ll always keep close to my heart.
My Art & Design background means I’ve worked with a number of book binders and printers. Testing out suppliers, so you don’t have to. Firstly I used a big name photo book company that offers affordable book printing. Great! The custom design I put together took me a whole week. But when the book arrived, the images were all far too dark.
Secondly I used a local professional book printer and binder. This book was for an exhibition so I visited the printers in person. Perfect colours and a custom layout made me very happy. What didn’t make me happy was the quality of the binding, which meant after just two days of the show pages were falling out.
Finally I went to our current specialist supplier. Not only are they one of the most eco friendly suppliers around, the quality of their products is the best we’ve seen.
Most of all these gorgeous lay flat fine art albums allow us to create these dramatic double page spreads of your favourite images! If you still find yourself asking wether you need a professional wedding album, contact your wedding photographer and they’ll be able to show you samples in person.
Since planning a wedding can be expensive and album prices vary depending on size, pages and cover options. We’ve recently introduced a new creative wedding photography package that includes an album. Saving £100 on our fine art albums whilst being able to incorporate the cost into your wedding budget.
The lovely Kelly over at Boho Weddings wrote a brilliant article about her own experiences and the importance of a professional album here.
