We are living in a material world and I am a material girl. Well, if the material Madonna had been speaking of was paper then she sure as heck would love these albums as much as I do. The printed product is extremely important to me as a photographer. There is nothing quite like holding a print or a book in your hand and knowing that gorgeous piece of art is going to hold up to changes in technology. 50 years from now I want to pass down my wedding album to my grandchildren when they get married. Who can say that about a flash drive?
And picking what album to sell to your clients is an extremely personal decision, one that needs to reflect your style and your brand. I’m not joking when I say that it was an easier decision as to what my husband and I were going to name our daughter than it was for me to choose an album company. But in the end I went with the one that I first fell in love with and always kept coming back to. That company is Cypress. I am very excited to offer my clients these gorgeous, hand crafted, heirloom albums. They come in a variety of stunning colors, all wrapped in a box to match and tied with a satin bow. They also make beautiful photo displays called folios that can set out on a bookshelf, end table or night stand and make wonderful gifts for family and friends. Or, enjoy one for yourself! The pages are thick and durable and the photos are flush mounted and can extended all the way to the ends of the page if you wish. The layout possibilities are endless, but I like to keep things simple and let the photo be the star. And my favorite part about these albums is by far the packaging. Cypress takes great care in the way they present, package and ship these.
I had two sample albums made from two of my 2012 weddings and I’m delighted to share them with you. If you are a 2012 client that is looking for a way to cherish those high res photos, then contact me today! And to my 2013 clients, I highly recommend adding an album to your selected collection. Once you hold one in your hand it will be hard to let go.
