Check these two out!

I just received a mobile photo from my friend Kim who is enjoying one of the biggest photographer trade shows of the season in Nashville, TN - ImagingUSA. It’s hosted in a different city each year by Professional Photographers of America. Sadly, I wasn’t able to go to the conference this year, but I’m definitely enjoying the tweets and Facebook statuses of my fellow photogs who are there learning lots and enjoying all of the photo industry excitement!

Sarah and Drew’s super-cute CD case is on display in the MpixPro booth at ImagingUSA. How cool is that? I love it that my clients are looking fabulous while thousands of photographers stop by the MpixPro booth!

Did I mention I LOVE MpixPro for printing/assembling all of my DVD cases and image boxes? They totally rock!

More wedding albums delivered - in time for Thanksgiving!

Before I head out on a trip to visit my family in Michigan for Thanksgiving, I just thought this album deserved a quick post. I delivered Yaeko and Eric’s album today and I LOVE it. This is such a beautiful example of simple, classic design to highlight the images and truly make a timeless keepsake. I love that they took me up on the suggestion of a silk cover with a suede leather wraparound. Because my albums are completely custom, I’m able to work with my clients to truly make their album one-of-a-kind. I encourage all of my couples to think beyond the black leather cover and create something unique!

Here’s what my custom album packaging looks like. Albums come wrapped in this gorgeous paper with an amazing leaf embellishment:

And before it’s unwrapped, here’s a detail of this 30-page 10×10 album’s pages:

THIS is the amazing cover, folks. Delicate silk design and suede wraparound. I’m in love:

And, of course, a shot of one of my favorite spreads from the ceremony:

Now, I’m off to order another copy of this album as a sample for myself!

Wedding Albums Galore!

Cassandra and Joe’s wedding album arrived and I just had to snap a few images before I shipped it out to them yesterday. I offer so many cover choices and it’s so great when a couple takes me up on my suggestion to try something different than the standard black leather. This album incorporates the couple’s wedding colors to the fullest extent and it totally rocks. The handmade leather cover brings out the yellow in Cassandra’s bouquet, and the design enhances the colors in the bridesmaids’ dresses. This album is seriously delicious. Yet another wedding album that I wanted to keep for myself. ;)

Watch how the colors make this album truly unique:

This yellow is seriously gorgeous in person too:

And a glimpse inside to the last page:

Also, check out this turn-around time … Cassandra and Joe were married on July 18, had their favorite images picked out by the end of August, and after design time and production time, their complete album will be in their hands less than 3 months after their wedding!

Kristen & Brad’s Albums and a Holiday ordering note

I’ve been working on so many albums lately that when the UPS guy comes to my door I jump up and down … another completed album has arrived! This morning was no exception, and I just had to share a couple of images of Kristen & Brad’s finished albums. They were such an outstanding couple to work with, and their input into their design made it uniquely theirs. It’s so important for your album to be what you want it to be; that’s why I only offer custom designs. There’s no fitting your wedding in a box here; your input is key in the design process. It really pays off in an album you’ll cherish.

Now, (gasp!) a Holiday ordering note:

The truth is, if you are still deciding on the images you’d like in your album from your summer wedding, you’ll need to get those to me very soon to ensure delivery before the winter holidays. Your album design is custom, and you have input in changes to your design before it goes to print. This makes your album uniquely yours, but it also means your start-to-finish album process could take up to 10 weeks. If you’d like to have your album in time for the holidays, the cutoff for submitting your favorite images for design is Monday, October 26, 2009. But, of course, you probably want your album sooner than December, so why not get started today? Just shoot me an e-mail. I’m ready.

Finally, just a few photos because I don’t often show the details of the quality of my albums. I thought you’d like to see them.

Here’s Kristen & Brad’s 10×10 album in the center, with two matching 6×6 parent albums surrounding. Having a small version of your album for your parents to show off is soooo much fun:

Their design incorporated a few full-page images, which I love. The images are true professional photographic prints, mounted flush to the page for a seamless, finished look:

And a little detail of the pages and binding. The book lays flat and has a tiny 1/16 of an inch gap along the seam. These albums are super high quality and hand-crafted to last generations:
