It was about time I remembered making some photos of my wedding albums. I keep forgetting to cause when I get them I’m just so psyched about it I run over to the couple to give it to them. Not so smart.
This time the couple lives in Groningen which kept immediate running at bay and gave time to make some photos!
So! The BIG one is the actual album. The two smaller ones on top are the parent books.They’re exactly the same as the big one, apart from being a cute size smaller (actual sizes are 30 x 30 cm and 20 x 20 cm).
This is what my ‘basic’ album looks like. As soon as I have sample album of the ‘advanced’ one Ill totally post! Basic doesn’t mean less quality by the way. All the prints are actual photoprints!
And all the albums have this ‘lay-flat’ system. It means you don’t get the bulge you see in regular books. Instead you get this amazingly thin line where it doesn’t mess with your lovely photos =)
It works like this ;) Sorry I don’t actually know how it works ofcourse. Some kind of smart binding process! But it has awesome results and I don’t use anything else!
See? No bulging of any kind! Perfectly flat pages (hense the name..).
I like leather as a cover. It just has this nice feel. Other options are possible of course. As well as a photo design for your cover.
I like calm layouts. It’s about the photo, not about how well I can decorate the page around it. Also you still have to like it in 50 years and not have your grandkids go “OMG GRANDMA WHAAAT”.
Whatever you do, album or not, you’ll get this usb stick from me. It has all your photos on it on high resolution so you can print, and in web size as well so you can easily put them online!
I tend to buy little boxes and things wherever I go. This way I can try to find something to put the usb in that I think matches your wedding but matches my styles as a photographer too (this means the boyfriend gets dragged into every single store I think is cute, the suffering ;)).
This AWESOME thing is one of my latest finds. It kinda floats the usb in there. You can put it on display just like it is. It’s so cool! Totally getting more of these.
Et voila.. my packing skills! Not that bad ey? I’m SO SLOW at it though hah. I love getting all the things and ribbons and cards. But when push comes to pull it takes me almost an hour to wrap it all hah. Oh well! I think unwrapping things is GREAT and unwrapping the permanent memory of your wedding should be great too!
I’ll make sure to come with a post about the upcoming ‘advanced’ album! Give me some time on that ;)
