Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.’
Your weddings images are a beautiful, visual narrative of your day. They tell your story and are a reminder of every moment, every emotion, every precious detail. They connect you to the people who shared it with you and to the sense of joy and love that comes from making such an amazing commitment to each other.
Investing in a wedding album is something that I always recommend to my couples. For me (….and yes I know I’m a little ‘vintage’) photographs look better when they’re printed! There is something so beautiful, so wonderfully tactile about seeing an image in print. It connects you to a moment in time in a way that is more tangible, more emotive and more wonderful than any other medium.
Your wedding album is a storybook of your day; one that you will open time and time again. It will allow you to re-live those memories with generations to come. It contains every important decision you made, from what flowers you chose to the colour of your bridesmaids dresses. It reminds you of how amazingly beautiful you felt in your wedding dress and the overwhelming feeling of love you had as you made your vows to each other
It took me a long time to find an album that I was happy to recommend to my couples, searching for many years to find a company that reflected some of my core business values. But when I did, I fell head over heels in love! Folio albums are the most gorgeously scrumptious hand-made albums that you will ever see. They are leather bound with a choice of the most insanely yummy colours such as Jade, Grape and Wedgewood. The company also has a very deep commitment to ethical and environmental factors. All leather is sourced from suppliers committed to the sustainability and ethical treatment of animals. They are also printed on the most beautiful white art paper derived from sustainable wood sources, which literally brings colour to life with an exquisite vividity. They also lay flat with an almost invisible crease allowing landscape images to be printed seamlessly across the whole page. One of the things that I adore about these albums is the attention to detail. They are hand-made at every step of the way….even the leather is hand cut.
The other fabulous thing about these albums, is that there is an option to have an exact copy made of your album….but in a very portable 6″ x 6″ handbag friendly size!
