Wedding Album Guide- The Storybook Album

Storybook Wedding AlbumA Storybook Album is a luxurious wedding album, measuring 12×12″ with 40 pages as standard. The Pages are lustre photographic paper, mounted on card printed by one of the UKs top professional photo labs. With a wide choice of cover styles, the album has a square spine for a sleek, more modern finish. Every page from front to back will open up and lay flat. This allows photos to be laid out in full page spreads and photos can print right across the centre fold with no loss into the spine. Layouts are ‘magazine style’ which allows a mixture of full page prints and smaller photos perfect for a ‘storytelling’ style of album including all your little details. The album is presented in a velvet lined presentation box which will keep it safe for many years to come.

Wedding Books: More Photos of sample albums

I’ve had a batch of orders in and a new sample album so wanted to show some photos so you can see more. The Wedding book is a sleek and modern coffee-table book with multiple photographs designed in clean, contemporary layouts. It’s my cheapest album offering but does not compromise on quality or style, produced by one of the best professional photographic labs in the UK.  Prices start at £300 with 100 photos; enough to properly tell the story of your wedding day (though you can add more if you like)

Wedding Book Samples-13Wedding Book Samples-16 The Wedding Book has a photographic cover, front and back and looks just like the books you’ll buy in shops

Wedding Book Samples-11 Photos are printed directly on to the heavyweight silk coated paper pages in clean and modern layouts.

This means that nothing is lost in the gutter of the book spine, and you can have photographs stretching across the whole spread.

Now you can see why the layflat pages of the main book are so unique.

New Album samples for 2010: The Storybook Flushmount

Earlier this year I attended Focus on Imaging at Birmingham NEC, the largest photographic trade show in the UK. This is the best place to see a wide variety of different suppliers and have a hands on touch and feel of their products. My primary mission was to scout out my album offerings for the coming year and I’m pleased to have found some great new suppliers to add to those I want to continue with.

Shopping for your business is different to shopping for yourself. You can’t simply go by your own taste, so I was looking for a selection of different types of album so my clients have a good choice. The product is the first and most important thing I was looking for- modern books and albums which make the most of the photos, with excellent quality and finish. Service is important, I’ve been stung before with long delivery times and poor service and if I’m let down by my suppliers that reflects badly on my business. Then of course price- certainly not what it should all be about, but I want be able to offer a range of options to suit different budgets and be able to offer good value without compromising on quality.

So, decisions made  I am pleased to show off some of my new sample albums today.

First up is the Storybook Flushmount album, featuring Jo & Graham’s gorgeous summer wedding at Mottisfont Abbey.
