Check out these super cool, custom wedding albums we made for our clients Kerry & Gary! First off, Kerry & Gary are just about the cutest couple ever. (I mean, when you’re names rhyme together, you have to be, right?!) They had a fabulous wedding in Summer ‘11 in Pittsburgh, PA that we were lucky enough to photograph. Since I know Kerry from college (across the hall roomies!) Kerry had us there the entire day. Now, full day wedding shoots are great, but they definitely come with a TON of photos. So many so, that Kerry simply couldn’t narrow down her choices into JUST one album. She proposed the idea of a “ceremony” album and a “reception” album and I thought it was brilliant!
She decided to mix the traditional with the modern by using a black faux leather (eco & animal friendly!) with an inlaid, acrylic cameo, and simple engraving of their names.
We really wanted to emphasize Kerry & Gary’s playful nature, so we added some engraving to the spines of the albums. Cute, and super easy to spot on the bookshelf!
The contrasts of black and white keep this album looking sharp and timeless!
One of my aboslutely FAVORITE features of our albums is the flush mount printing. No seams!! This is SO great for the custom designing of layouts that we do because we can tell the story of the day with no split seams or binding gutters to worry about. Also, the quality is so awesome, even our matte pages (shown here) are coated with a special polymer that resists finger printing, water damage, and even allows permanent marker (Sharpie!!) to be wiped off! Seriously!
Here’s a close up of the seamless binding. Pretty good, eh?
So there you have it! A peek into our custom wedding albums. If you’re curious about all the other leathers, fabrics, suedes, faux materials, shapes, sizes, and papers we have to offer, make an appointment to stop by the studio one day. Trust me, you’ll be inspired! I absolutely LOVE to make the albums. For me, it’s the ultimate keepsake of your wedding day. The day ends, the food is eaten, the DJ is gone but you still have your story, frozen in time within the pages of your album. With it, you can go back and relive that special time in your lives anytime you want!
