The Best Wedding Albums For Photographers

We’re sure that your wedding photography package covers everything that your client could dream of and the wedding album will be something that will crop up in conversation time and time again between yourself and your clients. We’ve spoken about the wedding album here at Weddit before, but we haven’t gone into detail about what’s considered the best wedding album for photographers to produce and offer to the Husband and Wife to be as part of your service to them as a wedding photographer. So, in today’s article we’re going to talk about the best wedding albums for photographers.

The Best Wedding Albums For Photographers #1: Matted Albums - Matted wedding photo albums are the most traditional and formal style of wedding album. Each page consists of a stiff cardboard mount that a loose printed photo is inserted into before being glued in place. The mount is slightly raised above the photo so that the photos do not touch when the album is closed. Each page of a matted album can hold a single image or multiple images, each in its own aperture. Matted albums are often known as reversible albums because either portrait or landscape photos can be included. Matted albums are most suitable for a classic or formal style of wedding. So, it will depend on the tastes of your client and what they want for their wedding, but ideally the wedding album will fit with their personal style and image of their wedding.

The Best Wedding Albums For Photographers #2: Flush Mount Albums - Flush mount wedding photo albums are considered a more contemporary choice than matted albums. Each page of a flush mount album is a border less photographic print on rigid board, which can include one or more images. There are two distinct styles of flush mount wedding photo albums: Coffee table books tend to have distinct pictures with printed borders, even though they may overlap each other. Magazine style wedding photo albums are more likely to have full page pictures, and images overlapping each other with no distinct borders. Flush mount wedding photo albums are a modern choice, and work well with the popular photojournalism and Vogue styles of wedding photography. However, you do need to check the quality of your flush mount album, as this can vary greatly. Because the photos meet when the book is closed there is a danger of the pages sticking together and becoming damaged. Find out whether your album supplier will apply a protective coating to prevent this from happening.

The Best Wedding Albums For Photographers #3: Parent & Gift Albums - Parent and gift wedding photo albums are scaled down versions of your main wedding album. They might include all the same pictures but just be smaller, or they may just contain a select few pictures. Parent albums tend to be around 20cm square, and as the name suggests they make an ideal present for the parents of the Bride and Groom, so this may be a popular choice for your clients as they place their orders. Gift books are often available in a smaller size and make perfect thank you presents for your client’s maid of honour, bridesmaids, or best man. Don’t forget you can discuss all of the options that you offer with your clients. They have the experience and knowledge to be able to guide you in the right direction as to what they may need.
