There are several questions that bother you very often, one of them is: "How many photos should be included in the photo album, and who should choose them?"
The basic information to answer the first question is what albums / books you prefer, most important how many pages your album should count and what size it should be. Of course there are also two trends in the selection of photos, some photographers choose them themselves and others give it to the hands of the bride and groom. We prefer the mixed mode, usually selecting 80% of the photographs ourselves, we consult our choice with you and we give you the possibility to select the rest. We must remember that the photos for the album should be carefully selected, forming a coherent whole, in terms of colours on the consecutive pages as well as framing and size. For sure the album cannot be overloaded with pictures, as its main aim is to tell the story in the simplest possible way with the help of the best frames.
Albums with pasted photos and albums with printed pages
Recently traditional albums are growing more and more in popularity, but actually it would be more appropriate to say that their popularity is returning. One should realise that such an album can contain less photos than the one printed on photographic paper. The creation of high-quality printed albums requires the use of the best available papers. We use Kodak Endura Luster, Kodak Endura Silk and Fuji DPII Matte papers as well as Epson printing equipment with 11 colour inks. It is also possible to choose between matte paper and glossy paper. We assure you that it has nothing to do with the albums ordered in popular printing points. Of course, we also offer so-called traditional albums. The waiting time for them is a bit longer because every project comes to us from Italy We have been cooperating with the Italian studio, which manually binds albums for us for a long time. We give a 10-year warranty for them, being absolutely sure of the products we offer. The choice depends on you. Remember that this is a lifelong souvenir. Of course, let me remind you that we are doing a yearly backup of photos, so if you would like to order the another album during that time, or after this period you would send us photos, we will design and prepare the album for you.

I hope that I have managed to present our offer of wedding albums clearly. Of course, if you wish to order an album, you don't need to have a photoshoot booked with us. It's enough to send us photos of appropriate size and quality. Remember that our albums have completely different quality than those you can buy online or at some printing points. This is not without a reason that the warranty period for them is 10 years. Reading this post, you might be wondering if you actually need a photo album. If you are watching photos on CD / DVD or data storage media, don't forget they are originally meant to be seen in a printed or developed version and the album itself is a kind of a piece of art. The smell of ink and leather makes getting back to those great memories incomparable experience.
If you are interested in our album offer, you are welcome to contact us, so that we will be able to talk about your expectations and discuss all the necessary details.
