FINE ART ALBUMS
Our absolute favorite thing we offer! We believe that memories as important as those of your wedding day are meant to live in print, so they can stand the tests of time and technology. It's so special to hold images of your happiest moments and favorite people tangibly in your hands, something that is so rare these days. Experiencing and sharing your photos is so special when they are real, tangible heirlooms outside of a screen.
We think of digital images as the first step: great for widespread viewing and sharing in the now, but temporary in the long run. We think of albums as the final product: a way for your photos to become permanent heirlooms for you to cherish. After the day is done, your dress is packed away, and the celebration becomes a memory, your album becomes the most lasting keepsake from your wedding, for you two and for generations to come. This is why we believe a wedding album is the most important item to account for in your budget.
Fine Art Albums are curated to visually tell the story of your day. Layouts are custom designed by Joe and Jen, with collaboration from you using your favorite images. They are beautifully constructed with longevity in mind. Your images are printed on archival-quality photographic papers that will not fade or disintegrate with time. Thick lay-flat pages and hand-stitched binding add craftsmanship and durability. A range of cover materials are available, from Italian leathers to hand-dyed linens, to perfectly match with the style of your day. Custom cover embossing adds an extra personal touch.
Why print through us? We've found that while Clients approach the DIY printing route with the best of intentions, quality suffers or printing simply doesn't happen due to the inconvenience. We’ve done the research and testing to find the most beautiful and durable albums possible, meaning exceptional paper quality, color accuracy, and beauty over cheaper big-box alternatives - all conveniently designed, hand-crafted, and ordered for you. As your photographers, we love the ability to see the images through from the vision in our mind to a curated piece of art for you to hold and cherish.
We manage the design process for you, putting our time, care, and expertise into the album layouts. The process is collaborative with you every step of the way, using your favorite images and inviting you to easily edit and approve each page to perfection. This results in a completely custom piece that tells the story of your day, right from the source of the photographers who originally envisioned and created your set of images.
Fine Art Albums are 10x10 or 12x12 inches, with between 20 spreads (40 pages) and 30 spreads (60 pages) available. A curated selection of your very favorite images are included.
Albums can be purchased up front with your wedding photography Collection, including an up-front discount. They may also be added to your package during the planning process or after your wedding, though past couples have found it best to build the album in at the front end of your wedding budget. Flexible payment plans are available.
