ALBUMS: Cypress Fine Handmade Albums

It's an early birthday over here for Melissa Tuck Photography -- the new album sample has arrived! I am so ecstatic to finally share with you my newest offering from Cypress Albums. Before I get to the goods, a little thoughts from me: I think getting a wedding album is SO important. I know digital negatives are all the rage these days (and yes, they're important too!), but by purchasing an album, you have a way of displaying your wedding photos. I can honestly say that I haven't looked at our DVD of photos more than once since our wedding (and that doesn't take away what a fabulous job The Schultzes did!), but my point is this: We purchased two canvas prints from our wedding, which are currently hanging on our living room wall, and we look at those EVERY SINGLE DAY and are reminded of how wonderful our day was. An album is yet another elegant way to show off the magic of your special day. Off my soapbox and onto these GORGEOUS albums! : )

I chose a neutral platinum for the album cover and a gray presentation box with ivory ribbon. I also added a cover photo.

Gold imprinting (silver and clear also available):

Library bound style binding.

An elegant European-style presentation box is available to protect and display your album.

The photo prints are permanently matted onto the page. I use high quality Kodak Professional Lustre paper with a lustre coating, which is an environmentally safe, water based coating that provides additional protection to your prints and adds a slightly more matte appearance for a fine art look.

The 10x10" album is custom-designed and layout-oriented. The photo prints are flush-mounted to heavy-weight six-ply (non-bendable) pages. Each album can hold up to 25 pages (50 sides).

The gorgeous fabrics are Japanese bookbinding fabric and silk ribbon. There are multiple colors from which to choose.

Past couples, if you're interested in purchasing one of these beauties, shoot me a note: mel [at] melissatuckphoto [dot] com. Future couples, you can also get it on the fun. I'm offering a 10% discount on Cypress Albums at the time of signing a contract. : )
