As my wedding shooting has slowed down a bit for the moment, I've been designing some albums, and have decided to post samples of albums and folios. For my albums, I offer Cypress and Laguna albums, both beautiful books made by two different companies to offer two completely different looks. The Laguna albums are made with man-made leather, and the pages are printed on photo paper, laminated and mounted to mat boards for a heavy-weight page similar to a child's picture book. The Cypress albums are made from Japanese bookbinding fabric and silk ribbon, and the photo prints are permanently matted into the pages. The album comes in an elegant presentation box for further protection. Additionally, Cypress makes folios that are lovely gifts for members of the bridal party and parents. As a fun side note, Cypress is based in Glendale, my home town!
Here are the Laguna albums:
