Your Wedding Album holds the cherished memories of your special day. I wanted to offer a choice of Albums that would provide the "WOW" factor, exquisite quality, and last a lifetime.
After visiting tradeshows, trawling the internet, and ordering samples from several suppliers over a number of months I was delighted to find the Perfetto and Classico albums by Loxley .
The Perfetto album (my most popular album) is true to its name, offering a ‘simply perfect’ seamless spread for your images across the spine area of your album.
The pages are flush mounted edge-to-edge, using traditional photographic paper and are available in a vibrant lustre or punchy metallic option.
The Classico range has all the advantages of the Perfetto range, differing only in a visual break in the image area across the spine on an open spread.
The pages are flush mounted and the prints are available on traditional photographic paper or a choice of 4 press-printed papers; art watercolour, art watercolour ivory, standard pearlescent and oyster pearlescent.
The photographic paper options available are a vibrant lustre or punchy metallic.
The Album is presented in a faux leather presentation box complete with magentic clasp.
The key difference between the Perfetto and Classico is the option to put an image across an entire spread (two pages) printing on the spine. All images are individually colour corrected and edited to your requirements.
Designing your Album is done with you, making sure it is a truly magical memory of your day, that will last a lifetime.
As an option for Parents Albums I present the Loxley Memento Album, a copy of your own album design in two beautiful smaller books. Order Bellissimo Memento albums for the perfect addition to your album packages. Prices start from £140 for two.
Wedding Album Design Service...
Designing your Album has traditionally been done by the photographer with varying degrees of involvement from the Bride & Groom for years. Some had a choice of which photo's they wanted to include in their own album, but none over the layout. Others had no choice whatsoever just getting their Album handed to them and hoping for the best. There are still many Photographers that operate in a similar fashion, and whilst some Bride & Grooms are perfectly happy with this - others may prefer more input when designing their album.
I decided that I would offer a very bespoke service for each and every couple and their Album.
Starting with your choice of Album (Perfetto or Classico) I am on hand to help you make the decision, answering any questions and showing examples where requested. Once you have chosen your album and we then begin designing it.
Choosing the images for your album...
You will have a large amount of images to choose from, I usually recommend a few days to just look at them and get a feel for which one's you'd like in the album. Depending on YOU and how you want your book to look, many couples go for around 8-10 images per spread (two pages). If you've chosen Perfetto that will be around 120 - 150 images to choose!
Choosing your album layout...
Your images can be placed in your album in any way YOU choose. I will offer advice and examples to get us started, then I will design the page to your specification and with your chosen images. Once the page is completed I email a proof image for you to see, if there are any adjustments you want made I do them or if none are required we start on the next page.
Choosing the finish for your album...
There are many choices of finish for your album, from the standard leather cover and Photo dust jacket to Aluminium or perspex covers, metallic print finishes, standard photographic papers, etching or stencilling - the list goes on. Your album is already finished in leather and to the highest standards, if you wanted something different this is the time to look and go through the options.
Completing your album...
Once your Album is completed I implement a final "flightcheck" to make sure everything is as it should be, once done I upload your Album to Loxley who lovingly craft the final product! I normally have the album back in 7 working days.
Designing your Album with you as a couple is a rewarding experience, if however you prefer me to produce and design your album for you I will do so with pleasure!
I also offer this design service to people who have their Wedding photo's on Jpegs and have decided they'd like an album, even if I didn't take the pictures!
