Album Love

I recently decided to spruce up my package offerings and add some goodies to the mix. Starting this year I will be offering KISS Flush Mount Albums to Brides that opt for the Gold and Platinum packages. I will also be upgrading the coffee table books to a much better product offered by KISS, their linen soft books. In all, these new offerings will really add value to the packages in which they are included.

The flush mount albums are absolutely beautiful. They are covered in supple leather with back padding and bound very well. Each album is delivered in a floral print cloth slip cover. The pages are made by mounting professionally printed images onto boards. The image is trimmed to the edge of the board, hence the name flush mount. Each album is designed as spreads; that is, if you lay open the book the two visible pages facing up will be one single spread. This is in contrast to the more traditional albums of old where individual prints were placed into pre-cut mattes. This gives continuity to the album, helping us tell the story of your wedding day in a way that flows easily from page to page. It will be less about looking at pictures and much more about experiencing the day all over again.

Also upgraded are the coffee table books. In the past we had used many of the standard press printers out there and we were never really all that impressed with the products, no matter the vendor. Press printing can create problems when you are printing large images and I find it much nicer to use actual light-sensitive printed photographs as the quality is so much better. This is where KISS shines. Their soft cover linen books offer the same photo quality printing as their flush mount hard albums without the boards for pages. They are covered in a stain resistant linen available in the same select colors as the leather albums offered. It feels good to say goodbye to press printing, and once you see the results, I am sure you will agree.

So without further adieu, here is some album love :)

These are the color choices available for both the Leather hard albums and the linen soft books.

Why do I like KISS? Easy. They make life simple for me. Rather than drown a client in options, many that never get selected, KISS prides itself on simplicity and ease of use. They only offer two styles, in 4 sizes, with 7 color choices. It really can’t get any simpler than that. The company was also founded by a former wedding photographer, so I can trust that the direction they follow will be with the bride and groom in mind. This gives me peace of mind knowing my clients and I are in good, trustworthy hands.

See you all soon for some more wedding photography fun!
