See how hundreds of photos get curated and narrowed down into a cohesive wedding album design. Each album tells the story of the wedding day in about 100-180 images, depending on the number of spreads in the album. The videos below are also on my YouTube channel.
Fine Art Book Albums
This style has a very contemporary, clean layout with white space. And it’s printed on mat, fine art paper. The spreads are attached to each other and there’s a tiny folded seam down the middle. There are many, many different combinations available to fully customize this style wedding album. I’ve got videos showing off a few of them.
This beautiful, vertical Fine Art Book is for a two-day wedding celebration. Their album really reflects the relationships, the key people in their lives. It’s covered in indigo Japanese Silk cloth with copper colored embossing.
This first video shows the details from two Fine Art Books. The first one is covered in leather and the second has a wraparound photo cover. At the end of the video I introduce two albums covered in fabric. And both of these have their own YouTube videos, shown below.
This wedding took place on the Fourth of July in Chappaqua, NY. The couple choose a lovely, historic mansion for getting ready, the outdoor ceremony, and the reception. Their wedding album is covered in a fabric similar to the color of bridesmaids’ dresses.
This wedding was in Islip, NY on Long Island. And the ceremony and reception took place at a lovely restaurant called Tellers. It’s called Tellers because they used to be a bank 🙂 Check out my blog post, Tellers Chophouse Wedding.
This slideshow above are photographs of this couple’s wedding album. They got married on the beach in Cape Cod, so they featured a photo of the waterfront as the cover for their album. Check out this blog post of their Cape Cod Wedding.
Luxe Flush Wedding Albums
This is called a flush mount album because each spread is permanently attached to a firm card stock. The layout style is clean, much like the Fine Art Book above. Then it’s printed on traditional photographic paper, mounted to card stock, and split leaving a tiny center seam.
This album covered in distressed leather in a deep red is another example of a Luxe Flush Wedding Album. It can include gilding on the edges and this couple chose gold for the gilding and the cover printing. Read more about this album on my blog post Luxe Flush Album.
Check out this other Luxe Flush Album covered in a Japanese silk cloth. The wedding was in Southampton NY at the bride’s Catholic Church and the Southampton Historic Society and Museum.
Luxe Matted Wedding Albums
At last for you modern but slightly traditional couples, I offer this gorgeous matted style wedding album. Each photo is an individual print, printed on photographic paper. Then it’s mounted into the album with a mat surrounding it. Just like if you took a photo to a frame shop and had a mat around the print, then the frame. The mat can be white, as I’ve often used. But you can also have black mat, or cream, or grey. The cover can also be leather or fabric.
Steff and Matt’s wedding was at the Athletic Club in Westchester. And since Steff is an interior designer, her ideas for the album cover were very modern and unique. They chose this gorgeous book cloth with silver imprinting and silver gilding. And of course the black and white photo is the icing on the cake!
And this last matted wedding album is a stunner! Rich black leather with silver trim on the outside. They also choose white mats for the inside. The white mats really look great with colors and black and white images. Plus the white mats are very understated and timeless.
Wouldn’t you like an album for your wedding photos? My couple’s have told me over and over again that the album is the best way to tell the story of their wedding day. It just pulls it all together.
