It took me forever to find an album that I absolutely fell in love with. I was not sure what I was looking for, but I knew I would know it when I saw it. I could tell you sans doute what I absolutely did not want in an album and here we go:
I didn’t want anything that looked to ‘wedding like’, nothing that made me cringe, nothing that involved faux leather and cheap fabrics. I didn’t want to offer an album that everyone else offers. I didn’t want to offer only digital albums, I didn’t want to offer an album simply because it was eco friendly, although I understand the importance of this. I didn’t want to buy British if it meant a reduction in quality and I could not get exactly what I am sure my clients would love .
My brief for an album supplier was simple, I wanted something that was classic, timeless, sophisticated, artistic, pretty, not gimmicky and without cheese. I wanted something like my Nana’s wedding album from the 1920s and my mothers from the 1960s, I wanted enduring, I wanted to be able to touch and feel actual photographs, I wanted to be able to match an album to the clients photos not shoot a wedding with an album in mind and then I found a wonderful artist who got what I wanted.
