Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Albums you will love

Category: Albums | Wedding

Everytime I receive an album in the mail I am excited to take a peek to see how it turned out and every time I am not disappointed. It is even more fun to bring the album to the couple and see their first reaction when they unwrap it. Even though they choose the images for the album and see the album design before I send it to the album company it still is a great feeling to hold the end result. They usually want to see it over and over again.

I strongly recommend an album to my couples. Yes albums come at a price and yes you will not look at it every day but just like with childhood albums when you do it is really something special. So when you go hire a photographer for you wedding consider an album. My album company is getting better and better each year. They now supply their fine art albums with gloves so that you do not have to worry that people will touch your album with dirty hands but keep your album nice and clean.



Album options

A little while back my album company QT albums contacted me if I would like to receive some samples of their fine art album paper and flush mount photo paper with some of my images. They also asked if I liked to receive a new swatch ring. I happily responded that I would indeed like to receive some samples and forgot about it. 

Until I received a package in the mail. I was expecting an envelop with some samples you see, nothing more but to my surprise I received a beautiful package. It included the various cover options, samples of the three fine art papers with my own images and the photographic paper tied together in a beautiful booklet. I was really amazed with this gift.

This way it will be even easier to show my couples what album options are available and then they are able to see the possibilities for themselves. This beautiful showcase really stands out and shows that my album company knows what photographers need.

If you would like to come and see the options that we provide come and see for yourself.



Selecting you album images - 3 tips

Category: Albums | Wedding

Even though not every couple decides to get one I think every wedding deserves an album. Just like with every childhood album you might not look at it every day but opening up your book every now and then really is fun to look back and see the images. It just is different to see it in book than on your laptop.

But how do you select the images for your wedding album in today's blog three tips.

1. Tell the story

When you receive a couple of hundred images how do you select the images for the album? I am a big believer in having my couples select the images and add images that I think should be included but the images that mean the most to the couple should be featured in their album. Moments that my couples find important might be different than what I would select. Look for images that tell your story and take moments from every part of the day. Try to limit selecting images that look similar. Choose the one that speaks to you the most. As a photographer I try to do this already when selecting the images but when reducing images that go in the album look this applies even more.

2. Look for details

Combine images of people with images of detail. Images we capture always include a lot of details and when creating an album this adds to the variety of the album. Especially if you have invested a lot of time and resources on details make sure they are featured.

3. Less is more

In a thirty page album I advise my couples to select about forty to fifty images. In my experience albums become more beautiful to watch and enjoy if they are not overcrowded. So even if you would like to put every image in your album be selective and choose the ones you love the most.



Album Design Kislay and Sonal

I just finished designing the wedding album for Kislay and Sonals wedding that we shot in the Olympic Stadium. Their wedding was so special and I think this album conveys their story. They included images of their engagement session as well which made me very happy. Indeed I have the couple select their favorite images. If I feel images are missing that are part of the story I select them as well and verify with my couple if they love the addition.

As I use an online gallery it so easy to share the result of the album and have my couples see the result.

Click here to see the final result of the album! They choose a 30cmx30cm fine art album so the actual album size will be much bigger than they appear on screen.



Fine Art Album

Category: Albums | Wedding

I have received one beautiful Fine Art Album to complement the range of wedding albums that we offer. This is a so called Fine Art Album is a flush mount album and it is printed on fine art paper. The sharpness of the images and the color is amazing.

This album has multiple cover options like leather, linen or photo. Further it is flat lay and can be mounted with page separators, which I really like on this album. The spine or the cover can be embossed and what is even better the album starts with 30 pages so a lot of images can be put in the album.
