For this delivery, I met my sweet FedEx lady at the door. I had been anticipating the package ever since I received the shipping notification. Contained within was Victoria & Joshua’s gorgeous heirloom wedding album. I helped them design the album, as I always do, and I couldn’t wait to see the album cover.
Unlike everyone else, Victoria & Joshua chose to do something really unique. For the wedding album, the chose one color of Japanese book binding fabric. For the presentation box, they chose a different color. The resulting set is a perfect harmony of blue. Bright and colorful, while also deep. The Marine and Ice blue look amazing together. I love the album so much that I am considering ordering one for myself in a similar two-tone design.
Even better, their album will look perfect on their bookshelf next to their proof presenation box. Even with the album stored safely inside the box, you will still get the two-tone effect. Victoria & Joshua chose the ice blue for the proof box as well.
Check back again soon. I will be sharing a few more album designs. I already know of three more wedding albums shipping to the studio.
Whenever possible, typically dependent on time, I love to share wedding albums my clients design. Each one is unique and special. Plus, every wedding album turns out amazing. Not too long ago, Erika and Scott’s wedding album arrived in my office. I had just a few minutes to capture the album before I delivered to their waiting hands.
Erika and Scott chose a very classic and contemporary fabric for their wedding album. It’s a gorgeous gray, raw silk that features a very high sheen. The album is encased in a protective presentation box, held shut with a magnetic closure. The ribbon, while only decorative, puts a perfect finishing touch on the whole presentation. Within is an Heirloom album, one of two that I offer. The Heirloom features thick pages, which are stiff as boards. With extra pages Erika and Scott chose to add, the album weighs nearly 10 pounds.
A wedding album should be substantial. They’re supposed to last for generations. I want my client’s grandchildren to hold their album, so I have always been careful about album selection. This is why I insist on the hand-made approach, and why I use Cypress Albums. Dena and her team make it right the first time. Everything is hand-made and everything is custom. I even had the chance to visit Cypress as this very album was being made. Seeing the work in process really helped me to understand how seriously Cypress takes their work. What Cypress does is really amazing.
Below are just a few highlight’s of Erika and Scott’s album. I hope you enjoy!
I’m really appreciate good presentation. So I made sure to wrap up Erika and Scott’s wedding album and seal it nicely with a bow and tag. As I work on more client albums, I will share what I can. Definitely stop back to see more soon.
In January, I found myself in Malibu, California for a very special purpose. Sure, I was escaping the cold weather, but I was also attending Caroline Tran’s Propel Workshop. Think of it as 10 photographers living, working, and shooting together for four days. It’s completely amazing. As part of the workshop, we did a very special Valentine’s Day themed proposal with Merrill & Tim. Today, I’m thrilled to announce that the session has been featured on 100 Layer Cake!
The feature includes photos from numerous amazing photographers, and some of my own. I’d like to offer a special thanks to Amanda and the group at 100 Layer Cake. Also, huge thanks to Wilmarose Orlanes of Lovely Jubilee. She styled the session and did an amazing job. Also, thanks to Caroline Tran and the team from Skybox Events. Caroline lead a wonderful workshop and it was all organized by Ngoc at Skybox.
I’ll have more coverage from the workshop coming soon, and many more images to share. For now, enjoy a couple highlights below. For complete details and more photos from the session, check out this separate post.
