Once it was an easy job to choose a photo album from your wedding photographer, now with the numerous Options available, that task has now become more complex. Today’s albums come in many styles from photo books or otherwise known as coffee table books, or the more upmarket flush mount albums and prestige matted albums. Some suppliers of albums in Australia include Jorgensen (located in Perth) and Seldex both companies provide albums of the highest quality to selected photographers and don’t sell direct to the public, so you will need to select a professional photographer if you would like one of their albums.
Styles of Wedding Albums
Photo books are mostly offset printing on a variety of paper stocks. These premium photography books are at the lower end in cost but still offer an excellent product for bride and groom to have an affordable memory from their wedding day to cherish.
Flush mount albums are printed on silver halide photo paper which is superior to offset digital albums. Photos can be printed edge to edge allowing a full page image with no border. Also they are available in a beautiful art paper with a matt finish that absolutely shows off your wedding photos. Available in an endless range of cover options these wedding photography albums are one of my favourites in style and presentation.
Matted albums where once the only style of wedding albums that most photographers offered to their clients. They still are popular but now offer a range of modern matts styles to keep up with today’s trends in wedding Album design. Matted albums are at the higher end of the market due to the extra cost of making the matts but are a great way of showing off your wedding photos if you require something a bit more exquisite.
Leather still seems to be a favourite of wedding photographers to show the bride and groom when selecting a cover. Leather has a luxurious feel and is great to handle and is a durable long lasting material.
One of the cover styles I like at the moment is the linen covers with the bride and grooms name embossed on the front in silver foil this really looks amazing and has a beautiful modern feel for your wedding album.
Photo covers that wrap around the entire front and back are another look that is very in vogue at the moment. Also another great look is a photo on the front with leather or other material on the spine and back which has a chic and ultra-modern touch.
The options in design are endless for today’s wedding photographer to offer their clients a professional looking product that is not only amazing in quality but looks and feels beautiful too. Still I believe when presenting your wedding photos, the best way to do so is with a custom made album that is not only a stylish approach to display them, but will also become a family heirloom for your cherished memories to live on.
