I am always so excited when I receive my clients albums from my album company, Cypress Albums. Cypress products are the only album products I offer and up until recently, the flushmount album was the only album on offer – they are that good I didn’t feel another was needed. They are so unique and of such high quality, they are perfect for clients images. Its like Christmas morning whenever I receive one from Cypress and while I have to sadly let them go to their new homes, I know they are going to be treasured just as much. Just last week I received 4 albums from weddings in the last season and I thought I’d share a some images of the process and finished products.
Whenever a client pre-orders an album in their collection, they receive their first draft about 3 weeks after their wedding date with their online gallery. I take the worry from my clients not having to worry about sorting through 600 images for just 40 for their album and I create the first draft based on my own feelings and professional opinion. Then my client has another 2 drafts to change images, add pages or upgrade to a larger size album if they prefer. It is such an easy, streamlined process and in most cases my clients will find themselves with their album approved just a few short weeks after their wedding.
Maria and James ordered a 10×10″ album with 22 pages. Here are some of my favourite layouts from their album.
And this is their album. Every album includes a presentation box that can be matching fabric to what is chosen for the album, or an entirely different colour. Maria and James chose one of my favourite combinations of grey silk fabric and an ivory ribbon and their master images DVD was also in the matching fabric. It creates a beautiful collection.
The heirloom album is a flush mount album. Each page is a photograph that is glued to the card stock page to create a flush mount with the page. It is a lovely, modern album that gives us a lot of creative license and allows for huge images on the pages.
Amy and Justin’s 17 page 10×10″ album is absolutely delicious and so full of light and love.
And the resulting album which was covered in a green fabric, that suited their wedding palette perfectly.
Brendan and Andrea ordered a 21 page 12×12″ album that is one of my favourites ever with crisp, clean layouts that allows the images to take centre stage. I know it is something that their daughter Olivia is going to love looking through as she grows up.
Every album is embossed with my couples names and their wedding date on the inside cover and on the back page with my own stamp. I love the little touches like this.
Kellie and Dave’s 12×12″ 23 page album. I adore Kellie and Dave and am so pleased to share that they are now expecting their first child this winter. Just knowing that this is their first family heirloom makes my heart sing.
Kellie and Dave chose a very modern, clean black silk linen exterior.
A big thank you to Cypress Albums for their outstanding service and craftsmanship.
