Beautiful Wedding Albums from Judi Checketts Photography

At this time of year the intensity of wedding season is coming to close and the focus is on editing and design of wedding albums.  This week I had the pleasure of delivery another wonderful album to one of my amazing wedding couples.




I'm fortunate that the majority of my couples value seeing their images printed in an album and really appreciate the quality these keepsakes give them for holding onto their special memories from their wedding day.





As a story-teller I love to provide these albums as it provides the final show-piece to their wedding.




Each image is hand-edited and professionally printed to give beautifully tones and colours showing off how great their photographs should look.



All my packages include a disk/USB of images from the day (350+ images) and at their viewing they chose a selection of photographs to be printed in their album.  It can be hard to limit the choice (and many clients do end up adding a few additional pages to their album) but the process I guide them through enables them to select their favourites and tell the story of their day without omissions or duplication.



While wedding blogs are full of delicious details to inspire your wedding, your album is about the two of you, your family and guests - no-one needs 10 images of flowers and shoes in their album no matter how beautiful they are!




The design of the album is important as the size and layout of each image affects how the viewer interacts with the story and how the photographs impact the viewer with the emotion.



Each album has a bespoke design based on the selected images and the client always sees a proof of their album before it is printed with the opportunity to make any further changes if they wish.  Usually very minor changes are made as they process I use really helps get these decisions right early on.



Consequently I don't have clients a year on from their wedding still trying to choose their photographs and my couples can enjoy their album with their favourite images making them smile and cry, time after time.



If you're planning your wedding or are newly engaged and already thinking about your photography as an important part of your day do get in touch as I'd love to discuss more about my wedding services with you.  All packages come with a complimentary engagement session which includes a fabulous printed 8x6" photograph of your choice and I have some gorgeous albums to show-off your wedding day photographs.  More information about my packages and further examples of work can be viewed online or call 07535 613606 to arrange an appointment for an informal chat.
