{albums} Q & A

I’ve been thrilled that lately so many of my couples are choosing to have me custom design their wedding & baby albums. BUT…many of you have questions so I thought I’d answer a few of them here.

Q. Approximately how many photos should we select?

A. It depends on the album you choose, but around 100 is a great start.

Q. What is the selection process? How does it work?

A. Again, it depends on the album you choose, but I will narrow your images down to approximately 150+ images when I create your slide show & blog post. So, if you loved those photos, you can ask me to design the album with those images and you are all set. Alternatively, if you would like to select the images yourself, you can go to your storefront and click the ‘stars’ and thus create a grouping of your favorites. Once you have selected your favorites, you can simply email me and I can access that group on my end.

Q. Once I select the images, what is the next step? How long does it take?

A. We will design a custom album for you using your selected images. Then we will email you a link so you can view the mockup online. At this point, you are allowed to give two rounds of suggestions & revisions before we get to the final proof. Once you sign off on the final proof, fill out the order form & provide payment, the album will take 4-6 weeks to be made.
Q. I really can’t make up my mind of which images to choose on a computer screen. Is there another option?

YES! Many of my clients elect to print proof prints of their wedding images and then make their choice by looking through actual photos. This process is a bit easier for some people PLUS you get to have prints of your ENTIRE wedding. You can use these images to give to family & friends, make your own wedding book or put in frames.  The cost of printing prints is much less expensive than printing ‘CUSTOM’ prints because I do not assure that every print is ‘perfect’. Proof prints have a small white border on the edges.

Q. What are the album choices?

Every album is made from rich, smooth, heavyweight fine art paper and fabric. Choose from over 18 elegant Japanese bookbinding fabrics and Swiss ribbons. All of the albums are simple, unique and elegantly designed to highlight your images. Please allow 8-10 weeks during the summer season.

ALBUMS

  • THE CYPRESS – A classic album with photos custom mounted into matted pages & includes a presentation box to store & protect the album.
  • THE IRIS – A unique, flush-mounted album offering modern design and elegance.
  • THE’C’ Album – A delicate library bound album with photos mounted to the pages

BOOKS

  • A hardbound coffee table book featuring your images printed in a modern, professionally designed layout.

Details . New Info . Grand Plans {2009 Weddings}

Happy December my friends! I know…it’s already December 23rd…but since my posts have been slim during the busy holiday season…I’m still sticking with “happy december”.

Wow…a few weeks ago, I was getting a bit nervous. I  was thinking, ” I know we are in a recession, but is ANYONE getting married next year. Well, I take it all back. In the last two weeks I have been inidated with phone calls and emails inquiring about next summer. I’m a bit more than half booked for 2009.  So, if a new ring is shinning on your finger, here is some info for you.

  • DON’T WAIT – I absolutly hate returning emails / calls….”so sorry i am booked… ” I am booking up quickly on those HOT dates…please don’t delay if you think we are a good fit.
  • NEW ALBUMS – I am offering a whole new line of albums next summer…more info to come soon. Just think…elegant yet fresh, modern yet classic, hip but timeless…and bottom line…they are beautiful!
  • MONEY –  All my prices are *somewhat* negotiable. I have a huge adversion to the word “Package”…it is just hard for me to describe what I do…soulful work…as part of a “package”. With that said, I do have different “options” for my couples and I tailor design an estimate for every wedding. Talk to me about your thoughts, budgets etc. Let’s design something that works for both of us.
  • WOW FACTOR – I am eager to take on big, beautiful, intresting, organic, fabulous weddings…I may even throw in a free hour if your wedding is spectacular. Talk to me about this.
  • ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS – If you are getting married next summer and we’ve included an engagment session…don’t wait until the beginning of summer to do your session. Choose early spring when the world wakes up and the light is fresh & clean. Want to upgrade to a different location…talk to me; I have lots of ideas cooking up!

Here’s an image to keep your senses happy!

  • Will you pose us in various positions & keep us from our wedding day & guests?
          Absolutely NOT! My style allows me to follow the action rather than directing it. Of course, I do photograph your family & bridal party if you wish , but it will be in a fun, relaxed manner and will only take approximatly 25 minutes. If you want numerous posed/ staged shots, then I can recommend another fantastic photographer for you.

          Yes, about 40-60% of your images will be in black & white or sepia toned.
  • Do you take credit cards?
          Yes !
