STORYBOOK WEDDING ALBUMS

Storybook Wedding Albums are an amazing keepsake and a true family heirloom. Many photographers believe the story of your day isn’t truly complete until you have that physical hardcopy in print format for you to view and re-live the day time and time again.

I offer a variety of stylish wedding albums to suit all requirements and budgets. I’ve taken a lot of careful planning to ensure the albums I offer meet the expectations of clients looking for quality and style without the hefty price tag.

Choice is a major factor when it comes down to wedding album specification, with all manner of control over details and personalisation. As a result, I’ve taken all the hard work out of the equation and chosen albums to what I believe to be the best choice for my couples, offering style and sophistication. (You still have control over the likes of colours, images, covers & laser etching)

Prices start from just £295 for a designed and delivered storybook wedding album (Probably less than the cost of your wedding cake!)

I use some pretty awesome software for album design and proofing. Featuring a large selection of templates for great designs that really do help to tell the story of your day. Online proofing galleries enable you to review your album layouts and leave feedback for any revisions.

paper finishes

SILK

 This is the standard paper that comes with the albums.

Fits the bill and looks great, with good colour reproduction. Does have a slight texture which is noticeable when it catches the light.

DEEP MATTE

A smooth soft paper with no texture whatsoever. This paper works great for photography styles that are more hazy/whimsical/day dreamy/soft etc.

More prone to ageing if handled with greasy hands.

METALLIC

Smooth and somewhat glossy but doesn’t catch the light like a traditional gloss paper would.

The clarity of the photographs when printed renders perfectly, like viewing the images in HD as opposed to SD!

Lends itself well to the more bold/punchy/contrasty styles.

FAQ’S

THERE’S A LOT OF CHOICE, WHERE DO WE START?

It’s a very good question! With wedding albums, there’s literally an abundance of choice. From sizes, scale, cover finish, page finish etc.

I’ve tried to keep things as simple as possible to make your decision easy and hassle-free. I’d start by asking what would go well in your home and how much you plan on budgeting.

HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE IMAGES FOR THE ALBUM?

This is actually pretty easy and can be an enjoyable task for you and your partner one evening.

All your wedding photographs are delivered in an online gallery where you can view them one by one. Here you have the option to select your favourites which will be sent over to me ready for the design stage.

WHEN THE ALBUM IS DESIGNED CAN WE MAKE REVISIONS?

Absolutely! I encourage my couples to log into their digital proofing gallery where you can view the album design and layout and make sure it’s perfect for you.

Here you have the option to add comments to a particular spread. I’m happy to make as many revisions as needed until we get the album design you love!

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE PARENT ALBUMS?

Parent albums come in pairs and are replicas of your main album in a nice 8×8 size. They have to have the same paper finish as your main album so maybe bare this in mind if having extra spread in an upgraded paper and the costs can increase with the upgrades over 3 albums.

They make great gifts and if your parents aren’t expecting one you’ll be in their good books for life! (No pun intended!)

They work out much cheaper than a single 8×8 as they’re run off the same press so. Two 8×8 parent albums actually work out less than a single 8×8 making it a very cost effective upgrade.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE IN PAPER TYPES?

There are 3 paper types you can choose from. All the paper spreads are 800gsm which is very thick and amazing quality. No more 6×4’s beneath cellophane!

SILK – Fits the bill and looks great. Does have a slight texture which is noticeable when it catches the light. Colours look great and this is the standard paper that comes with the albums.

DEEP MATTE – A smooth soft paper with no texture whatsoever. I believe this paper works great for photography styles that are more hazy/whimsical/day dreamy/soft etc. More prone to ageing if handled with greasy hands.

METALLIC – The daddy of all papers! Smooth and somewhat glossy but it doesn’t catch the light like a traditional gloss paper would. The clarity of the photographs when printed onto this paper renders perfectly and is like viewing the images in HD as opposed to standard definition! The colours look much better in this paper and lends itself well to the more bold/punchy/contrasty styles.

DO PRICES REALLY START FROM JUST £295? WHAT'S THE CATCH!?

Yes they do and there’s no catch! I’ve done extensive research in the wedding album market to source a supplier that no only delivers the highest quality but also offers albums at an attractive price that doesn’t break the bank.

The 8×8 Exclusive album is just £295, probably less the cost of your wedding cake with a much longer lifespan!

I just wanted to say personally how totally overwhelmed we are with the photo album and the photo box. They are absolutely wonderful and Michael and I can’t begin to thank you both for capturing our big day so beautifully and timelessly. We are eternally grateful, we never imagined the pictures would turn out so brilliantly, thank you so much.
