Why your Wedding Photographer wants to give you a KISS (wedding album)

Last week I had a booth at the Winter Wedding and Event Expo at Central Washington University. The show is relatively small, but as a result I felt like I had time to chat more with people as they came into the booth. My new sample wedding photography albums were given a lot of attention and I had a lot of compliments on the quality. Many people remarked that they had never seen albums quite like them. What I like is that they are both simple and elegant. A famous quote by Einstein states “Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” KISS wedding albums are all about simplicity but when you make the best quality albums you don’t need any gimmicks to sell them (you do know what KISS stands for, don’t you?). Simple. Solid. Quality. Elegant. Here is a summary of the key features:

  • Available with luxurious leather or linen covers- Leather albums are more durable with hard pages and premium-quality full-grain leather covers. Linen books are lighter with more flexible pages.
  • Pages are archival quality with true photographic printing on Fuji Crystal Archive photo paper. Less expensive, lower quality albums are press printed like books.
  • Photos can be printed all the way to the edge of the page, including full 2-page spreads.
  • Lay flat bindings with no cut at the seam allow for large, uninterrupted spreads with no gutter like on traditionally-bound albums.
  • Continuous, accordion binding design won’t crack or come apart like glued or sewn bindings.
  • Included cloth dust covers shield and protect your keepsake albums.
  • Available in 4 sizes – 4×4″, 8×8″, 10×10″, 12×12″ – and 7 colors

These wedding albums are heirloom-quality, built with only the finest quality materials and construction, and will last for generations to come. Personally designed albums are included in all of my full-day wedding packages. As a wedding photographer, putting these albums together and telling the story of a couple’s wedding day, is one of the most rewarding parts of the job. I can’t think of a better way for a couple to document and share their wedding memories.

The sample album photos below are from two weddings I photographed in 2010. The black 12×12 linen album is from a wedding on the coast of Maine. The informal outdoor ceremony overlooked the town and harbor of Camden from the summit of nearby Mount Battie in the Camden Hills State Park. The 10×10 white leather album is from a wedding at the Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort in Leavenworth, Washington, one of my favorite local central Washington wedding locations. Both sample albums have about 10-12 spreads (each spread is 2 pages). Albums can be designed with a maximum of 40 spreads (80 pages), which makes for a seriously solid book if you get one of these in leather! The black and white fabric seen in some of the photos is one of the included dust covers. Contact me if you’d like to have a look at my samples. I love to show them off.
