“Don’t let your wedding photos grow up to be jpegs.” – Jonas Peterson
Please, print your photos. Don’t leave them on their USB sitting gathering dust. Printing your photos makes them come alive. You can feel and hold them in your hands. Take them off the wall and stare at them. Pick them up of the coffee table and flick through them.
I always tell me clients please, please, please… print your photos. I don’t care if you get an album from me or you make it yourselves. Just please print your photos. With that said. I truly believe the albums I get made for my clients are the nicest albums you’ll ever see and I absolutely love putting together these books for my couples. I just did this stunning book for the wedding I photographed in Switzerland last year. Sandra & Jonathan are from different countries and I wanted to showcase that so I made a custom cover for their book with a world map with little flags in Switzerland for Sandra and a flag in South Africa for Jonathan. There’s a little dotted line between the two countries tracing the journey that brought them together. I wanted to make something different and personal for them. Not just to stamp their name and wedding date onto the front cover. The guys I use to print albums will make absolutely anything possible for your album cover if you like. I often use a couples logo from their wedding invitations or something from their stationary to put on the album to keep the continuity going. Anyway here’s (most) of the spreads from their album and a bunch of photos of the book itself.
