Each year I have the pleasure of designing gorgeous wedding albums for our couples and it’s a process I really do love. Selecting approximately 65 of the very best and most favourite images is probably the biggest challenge, but once those images are picked it’s truly magical to watch the album all come together. We love when couples come into the studio and get a chance to flip through these hand crafted albums in person. They feel beautiful in your hands and you can feel the workmanship and quality that has gone into each one. These are not flimsy books that are slapped together. Our albums are individually made by the album masters at Vision Art. We love the look and feel of these albums and they really do last forever! The thick pages are protected from finger prints and dust, the lay flat flushmount design means you don’t lose any of your photographs in the seam and they open nicely allowing you to see the entire image or images. We can’t imagine not having a wedding album… it truly is the storybook of of your wedding day and is a keepsake to cherish for a lifetime. Our couples are still telling us many years later how much they love their album and how they love looking through it with their children and their grandparents… over and over again. You chose us to capture your wedding story, why not let us design an album for you to truly showcase those moments and memories! Sure you can do it yourself and upload your images into an online template if you wish, but hands down I have never seen an album with the same quality, durability and breathtaking beauty as our Vision Art wedding albums.
Here is a sneak peek of Joanna and Dennis’ wedding album – we just had to make a studio sample for ourselves to share with all our 2015/16 couples that are coming in… we are in love with it’s elegance and beauty!
This gorgeous canvas carry pouch comes in several colours and patterns and protects your album when taking it around it to show friends and family or work colleagues; it also looks stylish on display in your own home.
the inside of the pouch is velvety smooth and soft so it won’t scratch your album cover
you can either choose a beautiful photo wrap cover like this one or we have a variety of genuine soft leather choices in several popular colours
you can see how thick the album is in this image – it’s sturdy and so well made – it also feels nice in your hands with it’s silky smooth matte or gloss finish
designing the full 24″ wide spreads is so fun for me – I love using a variety of page layouts to really showcase each gorgeous wedding image – this bouquet definitely needed to be shown as it’s own large single image; it was one of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen
I love including a couple of pages of black & white images in each album… of course it’s a personal preference, but some images really do look better and more dramatic in b/w (in my opinion)
this macro photo really shows an upclose look at the page thickness…. similar to a small child’s board book… these durable pages are built to last and can be turned many hundreds and thousands of times over generations and still look amazing – the clear coating protects your images from finger prints and dust as well
choosing the day’s most romantic or memorable moments is sometimes tough… but there are always a few that just stand out from the rest to me, like this moment when Dennis leaned in and whispered in Jo’s ear… that smile on her face… THAT moment needs to be remembered for always
the details are always an essential element of the day and need to be showcased on their own page… you have spent so much time (and money) choosing each and every one… when they all come together at the reception it’s simply gorgeous and you’ll want to remember them. Jo and Dennis chose a couture cake from The Luvvly Cake Co and their design details and inspiration in whites and creams with lots of sparkle were the work of Jackie Penner Events – stunningly beautiful for sure
Here you can see again how thick and durable the album is by the spine
and finally the back cover… just as beautiful as the front
Just like no two weddings are the same, nor are two albums. Each one is individually designed and then hand crafted. This album was designed in the 9×12 style but square options as large as 12×12 are also available.
