When I was a kid, one of my favourite things to do was to drag out the old suitcase from mum and dad's wardrobe that contained all our photos, albums and birthday card scrapbooks. I could (and did) spend hours going through the contents of that suitcase (which was used so they'd be easily grabbed in case of an emergency, but it was so heavy I'm not sure how easily grabbed it would have been in reality!) I loved looking at all the photos, not just of me and my siblings or of mum and dad, but grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and what I really really loved (still do) were the really really old ones. I was always fascinated by those faces looking back at me and wished I could ask them to tell me their stories.
This memory is something that has stuck with me for a very long time and has strongly influenced what I want to provide for my photography clients. Some of my wedding photography collections have an album included (and if it's not included, can be purchased separately) and most of them include a selection of 6x4 prints. The bonus of having your collection include an album, or of adding it to a different collection is that you don't have to worry about designing layouts, creating and ordering the album. All you do is select the images you want in the album and leave the rest to me - I've got your back! So many people have great intentions of making their own album and all too often life just gets in the way. (No judgement, it happens to photographers too! Ask me about my photos France photos from a few years ago!) If you're looking at different photography collections for your wedding, please consider adding on an album or selecting one with an album included - it's incredibly good value, a huge time-saver and a decision you won't regret.
Below are examples of the some of the print boxes, prints and albums provided with some Look See wedding photography collections. They're all Australian-made and with proper care should last more than a lifetime. These print boxes are made from certified sustainable timber. The albums are hand-constructed using Italian book binding machines and techniques, with beautifully thick card pages that have been printed using dye based inks for durability. That gorgeous silk ribbon in the album box? It's hand dyed and so, so soft to the touch. The USBs are also Australian-made and are custom-engraved. I can't tell you what a pleasure it is to put these collections together and it's always wonderful to see people's reactions when they open them up!
