Wedding Albums – Why I Only Offer the Very Best UK Made Albums

In this age of digital imagry physically printing your wedding images may seem to be somewhat old fashioned, but  Wedding Albums buck the trend and are something most of my couples seek out and want to see when choosing a Wedding Photographer. Many go on to order an album with me once they have their images.

Viewing images on a laptop is ok, but a back-lit screen is never going to show the images as I intend them to be seen. All prints are not created equally either, sure you can get prints made for under 10p these days, but these prints won’t have had careful attention to detail to get the most from the image, which is why I pride myself on the printed products I offer.

I offer albums and prints made right here in Yorkshire by a great company called Folio. It’s a difficult choice putting all your eggs in one basket, but when you know something is right it’s just right! When ever I get an album back from them I take a good look through it and I am always impressed by the quality, the fine art prints always look exactly how I want them to and I am yet to find prints that are more impressive.

I felt very lucky to be invited recently to make a short video called “Handmade” about Folio and the craft that goes into each and every album, you can currently see that video on the front page of their site, or just watch it below…

 

 

Here is a look behind the scenes of the video production…

 

Folio Albums BTS

 

As you can see Stewart is very passionate about his product, as are all the chaps (and chapettes) at Folio. This passion for their product flows down to every detail, I found the attention shown to the prints to be incredible, the leather work to be impressive and the overall care the team show for their clients albums to be inspirational. Those that know me well will know that is not praise given easily.

 

I am proud to be using a world class product sourced locally, it makes both economic and environmental sense to seek out such suppliers. I am proud to offer Folio Albums to my clients, they are the very best way to preserve your images for generations to come.

 

Here are a few shots I took of the team…

Denton Hall Wedding Photography – Amie & Luke

What a way to kick off the 2014 season! A Valentine’s themed wedding at one of my favourite places Denton Hall. Amie & Luke’s guests were in for a fun filled day! A Magician and a crazy windy heart shaped balloon release were the top of the moments for me…

The Wish Tree Foundation Prohibition Ball Charity Photo Booth

It was an honour to be asked along to run a photo booth for The Wish Tree Foundation‘s Charity Prohibition Ball last night in Harrogate. All sorts of sordid and illegal behaviour was going on behind the closed doors at The Cedar Court Hotel…

It was a true pleasure to support such a worth while cause, what they do for people is very special indeed!

Rudding Park Wedding Photography – Maja & George

Rudding Park has to be one of my favourite venues for a wedding, and having Maja & George there made it even better! It was a lovely summers day back in June, and the day was just perfect…

See, Rudding Park is a really really lovely place for a wedding! The staff are so professional and the setting is just perfect, no wonder it’s one of the top Hotels in the world, no just Yorkshire!

 

For some reason I ticked Maja & George’s wedding off my “blogged” list without actually hitting the publish button, so massive apologies to the both of them for that! But now all can see it :)

The Walled Gardens at Beeston Fields Wedding Photography – Claire & Sam

Here we are, I have finally caught up with my 2013 wedding blogs, I’ve been so lucky to have so many fabulous weddings and Claire & Sam’s is perfect to end up on. It was shortly after Christmas when I joined them in The Walled Gardens at Beeston Fields for a fabulous winter wedding…

Claire and Sam carried the wedding vibe right into the New Year by flying out to Sri Lanka and having a second wedding. Unfortunately I didn’t join them on that leg of their journey but I am so glad I was able to capture a little bit of the winter sun for them here in the UK :)

Swinton Park Wedding Photography – Fiona & Duncan

For Fiona & Duncan’s wedding at Swinton Park I was joined by good photographer buddy John Hope. Just to add to the pressure Leeds Wedding Photographer supremo Barnaby Aldrick was best man! No pressure to perform then!

 

I’ve been wanting to work with John at a wedding for a while now. I wanted to see how our very different styles would sit next to each other. I’ll let you be the final judge, but I think it went really well! Taking pictures of Barnaby however, now that is something else altogether!

 

I didn’t need to worry, Swinton Park is the perfect backdrop for a wedding and the weather was amazing for December. The moments happened all by themselves, John started with the boys and I headed to the girls, finishing the night off with a photo booth was the icing on the cake…

Great day! Very special. The highlight for me was hearing Barnaby sing/rap the end of his best man’s speech. Genius!
