Hand made right here in Melbourne.
It’s a beautiful feeling to sit together with your friends or family over a coffee and enjoy looking at your wedding photos, in beautiful, timeless print. It’s a feeling that can’t be replicated, turning the pages of something that you can touch and feel with your hands.
Viewing the images on a screen will never quite do photos the same justice as print does.
I have my wedding photos printed in one of the very same fine art albums that I supply to my couples. When I first received it, my wife and I took it over to my grandparents to show them. After we finished viewing our album, I asked my Nana if she still had any of her wedding photos around. Sixty-five years on from their wedding day, she even knew the exact place in the house where their album was. We then sat down together and slowly turned the pages, listening to my grandparents reminisce about that very day.
Their album only had a dozen photos in it. But they were twelve of the most beautiful wedding photos I’d ever seen.
My albums are hand made right here in Australia, using the most excellent quality museum-grade matte paper, so they are made to last generations, as they should be. Your album cost includes a one on one revision with myself and will not go to print until you are 100% satisfied with the layout.
I realise the albums are a substantial investment and it’s easy to say ‘we’ll get one later on’, however, from personal experience I know this rarely happens. Life gets busy, time runs out, and soon enough years have passed, and your wedding photos are still sitting on a USB somewhere. I highly recommend purchasing an album upfront. I offer an incentive discount of 20% off the album price to pre-purchase this way upon booking.
How much are your albums
Album Cost is $1650 upfront. ($1980 if purchased post-wedding)
Here’s what you receive.
• 10X10 Fine Art Album.
• The First 20 Spreads (40 pages)
• Your choice of:
– cloth or leather cover.
– Over 80 different colours.
– your names embossed/foiled on the cover
How many pages are in the album?
The albums I supply are 10X10 (square) and includes the first 20 spreads. (40 pages) You can build this album up to 45 spreads (90 pages) if you wish. The cost is $77 per extra spread.
How many photos will fit in the album?
To maintain a simple and beautiful look, giving maximum emphasis on every each image without looking cluttered, I recommend selecting no more than 80 images for 25 spreads. Some spreads may include only one image; some will consist of many more depending on the individual photos chosen & the design.
What is fine art printing?
The fine art prints I supply are printed on 100% cotton, acid-free, museum-grade matte paper with a subtle watercolour texture. They are printed on high-end machines with a much broader colour gamut than your typical large format printer. These prints will not turn yellow, fade or crack over time and are designed to look just as good in many many years as the day they were printed. That can all sound a bit ‘wanky’, but when you physically see the prints or albums for yourself, you will notice a substantial difference between this style compared to other standard prints you may be used to seeing.
Can I be involved in the design process?
Certainly! Via the online gallery of your wedding, you have the option to ‘heart’ the images which you would like to add to your album. I can then see which images you have selected, and they will then be designed into an album layout. You can then view the layout outline, where you leave comments & feedback until you are happy with the design. My album fee includes three lots of design changes, with additional changes at a $100 cost after that. Once you are satisfied with the completed design, you can then chose the colour & material of your album cover, and it is then sent off to be printed. I have dozens of album cover swatches for you at my workspace that you can check out. Typical turnaround time is about three weeks from this point.
