the digital age.. it’s great.. it brought us ‘Little Big Planet’, Batman – ‘Arkham City’, iPhones, Instagram, pinterest, etc.. and we all go about our days with our faces planted firmly in the feed trough of online factories, churning out the pictures/photos/images to quench our thirst for more more more.. it’s an amazing time indeed..
i’d been looking for something different to offer our clients.. something simple, something tactile, something beautiful.. the idea had been brewing for quite some time before i developed the concept & approached our album supplier – Photo Mounts & Albums Australia, (they’re really good at making books), about a completely custom order.. i can tell you one thing – it’s an excellent feeling when you take something you care deeply about to a supplier & they embrace it with a passion that matches your own..
it’s born from the love of photography, music, & books.. it’s designed to showcase the emotional content of a wedding story – to present it cleanly, & quietly, so the viewer can actually ‘see more in the less’ if you know what i mean.. and.. if you hold it up to you ear you can hear the ocean**
recently, this book was awarded the 2012 AIPP Queensland Wedding Album of the Year.. yay for me right?.. well yes, of course i was stoked for the industry recognition, but the album was designed for our clients, & their recognition is wayyyy more important..
so, if you’re thinking about getting married & you think this little book might fit you just right, please do contact us for a looksee.. we’re looking forward to meeting you already.. & to all our amazing clients who’s weddings are coming up, if you’re keen to experience this little gem for yourself, email us asap .. and, if you’re another photographer looking at this blog for inspiration, be inspired but please don’t copy. (or all your teeth will fall out) :)
**must be standing relatively close to the actual ocean for effect.
a MASSIVE thank you to Ioanna from PMAA.. your passion & expertise breathed life into this little treasure.. and thanks also to Michelle at PMAA for sourcing the little brass stud on the front of the box (from her own collection i believe)..
