Wow, it has been a really long time since our last post! Even though the "wedding season" ends in October and we only average about a wedding a month until spring, we're still very busy fulfilling print and album orders through Christmas. Plus, we've been working on some exciting new developments that we look forward to announcing soon!
We'll catch our blog up to our last two months of weddings and portrait sessions soon. In the meantime, we wanted to share a few photos of two amazingly gorgeous albums that arrived this week and are awaiting pickup. Both albums are metal-covered 11x14 Pictobooks, which is our main album line and what we believe to be the best albums on the market.
First is the album of Helen and Chris, a Museum of Glass wedding you can read about here. They chose the brushed aluminum cover with black leather binding and 3x7 cameo. This cover shimmers beautifully as light catches the fine scratches from different angles.
Here's one of the portrait session spreads, with the couple and their young daughter in front of the Hotshop Cone. One of the great features of these Pictobook albums is the ability to run a single photo from left edge to right, resulting in a 14x22 image. That's a HUGE size to be in an album. For comparison, our traditional wedding albums max out at 8x10.
Next is the album of Mikaely and Pat at Union Station, which you can read about here. They chose the gunmetal gray cover with chocolate black leather binding and 3x7 cameo. This cover just begs to be touched! The wavy-ribbed metal has a very soft feel that is so appealing.
This photo shows the album opened to the front spread, which we used as a title page featuring a lovely silhouette of the bride and groom in front of Union Station's Monarch Window, featuring Chihuly glass attached to the historic window lead.
Both albums come with a glossy cherry storage box, and we just started paying a little extra to have the Wallflower logo etched onto it, in place of the Pictobooks logo. The box is velvet-lined to protect the albums when they aren't being enjoyed.
These books, and the photos inside them, are real family heirlooms, and we love thinking about how they will be enjoyed not only by our clients, but by their future generations as well.
