We have a new addition to our wedding album collection – the Overlay Matted Album.
Overlay Matted albums are contemporary ‘no-edge’ albums, a simpler, more modern take on the classic matted album. Pages are mounted overlay style, with the photo mounted behind a card frame, and with clean cut edges (no edging or corners). Available with ivory or black mats, with ivory or black core pages. Come to our studio to touch and feel this premium upgrade album.
We also design and make wedding albums for customers who have their wedding photos in digital file format but haven’t order any album for themselves. We will help you to retouch the photos, do the design layout and present you with a beautiful finished album. Just email me for more details firstname.lastname@example.org , or simply call me 510-265-4223 .
Mentioned in the last post how much I adore the flush mount leather bound wedding albums from Leather Craftsmen , I am just so excited to receive Jayni and Patrick’s wedding album before Christmas, they were like my own Christmas gift.
The bigger one you see here is the 11″x14″ distressed brown leather bound album, the smaller one is the parent album which is exactly the same in design and material, just smaller, 9″x7″.
Not only I just brought in Leather Craftsmen as one of our album making vendor, but I also changed the whole design layout in all the albums I’m designing from now on .
So, whats the new design concept ? one word : “Minimalistic”. You probably saw some of my “Magazine style” albums before which you see more number of images on a page, pictures over pictures and pictures over a background with different opacity things like that. However I started to feel the magazine style was a little too “busy” , I figured every image that we selected to put in an album deserves a whole page or as much attention as possible on each of them.
You see some of the pictures I attached below, you will see fewer images on every page, on average one or two pictures in one page. Also another design concept that I apply is using more “Negative Space”, that means I use more white space in background to draw more readers’ attention to the image itself. The result is a more clean, contemporary , artsy and fashion cataloge style album book. Loving it ! I think is the perfect way to demonstrate my work.
The main album 11″x14″ and the parent album 9″x7″ , distressed brown leather cover
Perfectly embossed name on leather cover
Lay Flat design allow easy reading
I know in this internet age /facebook age we can easily share pictures online and keeping all the images in a DVD, however, I think be able to hold a physical wedding album in your hands, feel the leather, flip through every page and this feeling just can’t be replaced by any form of the digital media.
I am pretty picky on all the wedding albums I design and order for my clients. I want to make sure all album covers and pages are perfectly printed and binded for the couples to pass to their children and children’s children. The albums are not for them, they are really for their generations.
In order to provide the best quality albums I could provide to the client, I’m constantly looking for album products and seeking the best in the industry. I recently just added one of the best album company , Leather Craftsmen , to my list. They are the best in the industry with 60 yrs album making experience serving solely to professional photographers, their leather bound flush mounted albums demonstrate the best craftsmanship and just blow me away .
Just received Janelle & Russell’s 11″x17″ super size album/with Metal Cover from my lab.
It’s never too big for a wedding album, is like we always like a bigger LCD TV. It is just too awesome to flip thru every page on your lap with 11″x34″ of images (full spread open). I especially like this wider format as it is just FUN to enjoy all the wedding images this way.
I attached some pictures with a traditional 12″x12″ album together to compare the size difference .
12″x12″ vs 11″x17″

Right On Time for Christmas !
Heather and Tom had their destination wedding in Martha’s Vineyard earlier in Sept this year, while they are still selecting photos for their own album, they really wanted to get 2 parent albums done for their parents as a Christmas gift.
This is a 10″x10″ hard cover album, 30 pages, lay flat design and all pages are laminated . Very decent and affordable parent album options !
want to see their wedding day hightlight slideshow ??

Yes, a lot of Studio News to update recently , especially in the first quarter of this year, I have some major updates in my business in order to catch up with the demand and trying my best to improve the quality of the services and products.
I have been always looking for the best album available in the market, I always want to provide clients something contemporary, something they have never seen before, something…. just to exceed your expectation. On top of the metallic flush mount magazine album and other coffee table book I’ve been offering, I just started partnering with one more awesome album company to add this beautiful Hand Craft Album to my collections.
This hand craft album is hand made in Japan, perfect for couple who appreciates not only their wedding images but also the presentation, the texture and the touch of their precious wedding album. The fold out design makes it totally different from all traditional albums in the market.
Look at all the pictures below and you’ll understand why I LOVE this album so much. Again, please please don’t hesitate to email me and come to my gallery in Belmont to take a look of all my art work.
