NC Photography Photo Albums




T
oday's bride and groom have so many choices when it comes to choosing their wedding album. In fact, there are so many different companies making albums that in can be overwhelming trying to decide which style and which photos to put in the book. We like to offer our clients three different styles of albums; a montage album, a classic album, and a handcrafted album.
The montage album is our most popular album and has a storybook look with multiple photos on a page. I custom design the albums then the prints or layouts are sent to our album company to be be printed and bound. Each design is unique according to the bride and groom's taste. I personally like to keep the design of the album as simple as possible.
The classic album looks similar to the montage album on the outside but on the inside it has a more traditional look. With the classic album the photos are matted with archival black mats. The classic album may not be as trendy as other albums but is timeless. Because of that, we still have brides that prefer the look of the classic album.
The handcrafted albums are made by hand and are printed on fine art paper. The covers are made from high quality fabrics such as silks, linens, and fine leather. Also available are covers and paper for those who are environmentally conscious and prefer a "green" album. The handcrafted albums are sewn together by hand rather than glued. Although these books require a gentler touch, they will last a lifetime and provide you with a unique fine art look.
We also offer our couples an engagement book. These books have become quite popular. It's called a Photobook and is designed like the montage album. Finally and most importantly, when choosing images for your album you will be tempted to put too many photos in your book. Keep only the best... edit, edit, edit. Forty to seventy-five photos, depending on which album you choose, are enough to tell the story. A great fashion editor, Diana Vreeland once said, " Elegance is refusal " and that is so true when designing a wedding or engagement album.

Here is a sample layout of a Photobook from an engagement session of Danielle and Graham. Their wedding is coming up in May and I am really looking forward to it!
