Product Spotlight: Wedding Guestbook Albums

Charlotte and Rick wanted to have a album at their wedding that had plenty of space for guests to sign in and write comments to the newlyweds.  They wanted to use images that they had collected over the years of both themselves and of their parents and relatives.  Charlotte sent me all the images and I went to work custom designing an album for them.  Another popular option is to use the images from your engagement portrait session to fill the album.  Charlotte and Rick have a strong preference for black and white images so I converted all of their files into black and whites.

The product I offer for the purpose of creating guestbooks is a high-end, high-quality linen cover album.  They come in 3 sizes, 8x8, 10x10, and 12x12; Charlotte and Rick went with the 12x12.  They are also available in 7 awesome colors including, Virgin White, Forbidden Green, Passion Pink, Redlight Red, Sultry Blue, Smouldering Brown, and Voluptuous Black.  (I love these color names! :) )  The pages are made of real photographic prints instead of the much lower quality press-printed pages you will find from companies like Shutterfly.  The binding is done in what is called a "lay-flat" binding because the pages don't bend in the center like in a magazine.  This type of binding lends itself extremely well to panoramic images that span two pages.

Charlotte wanted a simple layout and I designed accordingly.  Check out the rest of the pictures to see some more of the album and design.

NOTE: The images in the album were provided by the client and not Jesse Starr Photography.

Real Art Memory Display: Canvas Composite

There are a lot of awesome ways to display your favorite memories from your wedding day or portrait session and one of them is with a custom designed composite.  In this example from Kasey and Dave's beautiful Keystone wedding, I put together 24 photographs on a 30x30 canvas gallery wrap.  This is a great alternative to choosing just one photograph per frame so that you are able to have a story of your wedding day all in one place.  I can design all sorts of variations of this type of display and tailor them to your wall space and taste.
