Engagement Sessions

I include engagement sessions with my wedding packages because they are a valuable way for you to "warm up" before your wedding day.  We spend approximately two hours and I encourage changes of clothing and setting so you have variety in your images.  Not only will this allow us to get comfortable with one another, but these can be used for "Save the Date" cards or as part of your wedding decor.  And they are images that are not "dated," that is, they are not wedding pictures but pictures of the two of you, relaxed and in love.  I like to collaborate with my couples to find a theme, setting, or activity that reflects who you are as a couple.

Albums

I offer beautiful imported albums from Graphistudio, a studio headquartered in Arba, Italy, just north of Venice, for Collections 1 and 2.  I love their quality and workmanship, as I know you will.  And they allow me room for creativity in designing your album which means no two albums are alike - yours will truly be one-of-a-kind.

I offer two of their products:  the Original Wedding Book and the Young Book.

The Original Wedding Book

This is the style of a traditional wedding album.  Hold one and you will feel a weight that speaks to not simply a picture book but an heirloom.  There is a wide variety of materials in multiple colors that can be used for covers and the studio box that is included.  Design elements are available as upgrades to make it your own.

The Original Wedding Book is shown here at 9.5" x 13" in a white leather with olive green leather spine and backing, die cut window with image, and embossing. This album is kept in a Design Box covered in a sage green leatherette.

Beautiful reproduction of colors and tones on thick pages.

Old World craftsmanship.

The Young Book

Modern.  Contemporary.  Sleek.  These words describe the Young Book, for the not-so-traditional bride.  It comes sitting in a hinged studio box that can include a custom overprint design on the front and an image of your choice inside.

The Young Book is shown here in an 8x12 size with a maple texture cover and a custom imprint that depicts the Victorian manor where the wedding took place.

The hinged studio box displays an additional image inside the front cover.

Custom imprinting on the cover of the album is included.

Beautiful color reproduction on rigid pages.

Old World Crafstmanship

Collection 3 include2 an 8x8 album from a premier professional color lab, here in the United States.  Upgrades to the Graphistudio albums are available for an additional $300 for an 8x12 album with 15 spreads or $500 for a 9.5x13 album with 20 spreads.
