Call me old-fashioned but I still love to print photographs, even in the digital age! Don’t get me wrong – I enjoy viewing images on my laptop and phone and being able to zoom in at the click of a button or the tap of a screen – but there is something so much more personal about being able to relax on the sofa with my loved ones and peruse a treasured photograph album.
I’ve recently had some new sample albums printed by Jorgensen UK. I always try to create timeless, stylish images and therefore chose an album design to complement my style of photography. The albums are made from premium quality materials, and the images have a lustre finish and are matted, i.e. the photographs are mounted, as opposed to being printed directly on to the page. All my albums have beautiful oatmeal linen covers with gold foil embossing.
With my 8″ x 10″ and 11″ x 14″ albums, I don’t impose any restrictions on the number of images, and the layouts are very flexible, meaning that you can showcase a single image on a page, or multiple photographs. Once I have individually edited and enhanced all of your digital images, I will produce a first draft of your album in PDF format, which will then be adjusted with your input until we arrive at a design that you are delighted with.
I’m very flexible and offer a range of album sizes to suit different budgets. My ‘gold’ package is my most popular photography package; with this option, couples receive a beautiful 8″ x 10″ album in addition to their digital images (on a USB drive, in a password-protected online gallery and in a slideshow set to music). The album has 30 pages but can accommodate a further 10 or 20 pages for an additional fee. There is also the option of upgrading to the stunning 11″ x 14″ album which comes as standard with the ‘platinum’ package. The 11″ x 14″ album is my favourite as its larger size really does justice to the images. Inevitably it comes with a higher price tag but it is well worth finding an extra £200 from elsewhere in your wedding budget in order to enjoy this premium album throughout your married life together. Alternatively, for clients on a tight budget, savings can be made by reducing the number of pages in the album.
Last but not least, there’s the option of the 6″ x 6″ mini album which is beautifully presented with a ribbon tie and slip-in case. This album contains ten images and, at only £100, is the ideal choice for elopements.
Whether you meet me at a wedding fair or we have a relaxed consultation meeting over a cup of coffee, I hope you will enjoy browsing through my sample albums and deciding which is the right choice for you.
