Wedding Albums

Fine Art Wedding Albums

“We should always remember that the practice of printing – of using an object to control the form of a repeated picture – has had a role in human culture from its earliest days.” – Richard Benson

Why invest in an album?

I will give you hundreds of high res files after the wedding, so I know I'm making it easy for you to be content with just the digital files. But to just be happy with a bunch of digital files sitting on your hard drive, that you may or may not share on social media and with a few family members, is actually criminal. Think about what you're about to spend on photography, and what the memories I capture mean to you.

Investing in something tangible, celebrating the photography by having a physical heirloom that you'll show your kids one day, that's a powerful thing. Don't under-estimate the satisfactionof being able to touch and feel your wedding photos. If you don't get an album please please print and hang a few images on your wall - or I'll cry a little.

Design Approach

After receiving your wedding images I'll ask you to select your must-have images - the moments you need in your album. I'll use this to build upon and create a design that tells the story of your wedding day/weekend. You will have 2 full iterations of feedback and review of each design. I make the changes you request and we work together to ensure the final design is something you're in love with.

Once we arrive at an approved design, we move on to decisions such as the cover type, page finish, what you want on the cover etc. The last step is to send the design to the album makers, and we sit back and wait a few weeks for the album to arrive on your doorstep. Simple.

The Product

I currently use RedTree Albums, a US company who excel in handcrafted albums of the highest quality. I made a conscious decision early on in my business that I'd offer the best albums - albums that last a lifetime, created by a company that cares about its customers and is always innovating. RedTree does all these things.

As standard, I offer 25 spreads (50 pages) of any 10x10 leather or fabric album. There are a multitude of colors to choose from and clients can deboss their names on the cover or include a feature image cut out - or we can even add custom designs. The images in the gallery above show just a few examples of the albums produced.

Albums ordered with a wedding package upfront are $1500 plus any applicable sales tax.

Albums ordered after the wedding will be charged at the list price at the time. Currently, the list price is $1800.
