I love it when my couples decide to add an album to their wedding collection. After all, it’s going to be the wedding album that’s looked at for generations to come and passed down as a family heirloom. It’s a very important part of family history.
Because my clients have shown a lot of interest in albums lately, I figured I’d dedicate a blog post to showing just a few of the options to choose from. I work closely with each of my couples to help them choose the perfect images and cover options so that their album is completely unique.
This blog post contains 4 different albums. Three of them are the traditional flush mount album. There are also a few images of the portrait book which has the same beautiful print quality but the album has a fabric cover and a thinner, white substrate between the pages. These are great for parent books.
Many of my clients live out of town so this is the next best thing to seeing and holding the albums in person. Enjoy!
All three of these albums are 10×10 with varying page numbers. Album sizes range from 4×6 to 12×17 and are available in square or rectangle.
Flush mount albums lay completely flat when open. Albums can be designed to each clients specifications. Cover cameo photos and embossing is available. Cover embossing and spine embossing is offered in 4 different fonts. I prefer a simple layout with large images to help tell the story of the day. Flush mount albums have a very thin “gutter”. The gutter is a tiny cut along the crease at the center of the book. This keeps the paper from being folded and it helps to minimize any discoloration of the photographic paper over time. Flush mount albums have a thick, black substrate giving the pages a very stiff, substantial feel when turning the pages. This next image shows the portrait book. It is covered in your choice of linen covers. The book on top is the portrait book and the book on the bottom is in identical design and page number to the flush mount book. You can see the difference in thickness of the two books here. The portrait book has thinner pages with a white substrate between the prints. It is not as thick as the pages in the flush mount album but they are sturdy and do not bend. The book also lays completely flat when open. One of my favorite parts is choosing the cover material. I offer a wide variety of leathers, ranging from top grain leather, premium leather, lamb or calf skin. There are also several great faux leather choices as well.
