Sneak Preview: Styleboxes

Can’t wait to get these beautiful styleboxes out of our shop!  After 11 years of making albums and packaging material I can honestly say this was by far the most challenging project to date.

We wanted packaging for our albums which would set you apart as professional photographer.

Something which says style in a modern way.

Crisp clean lines and personalization in a way that says that your clients are important.  That you are a creative professional.  That one size does not fit all.






The Wedding Album: Selling It and Loving It by Mhari Scott Photography

When I started out my wedding photography business, I was not a very albums-focused operation. I made the assumption that my clients would be more interested in taking their DVD of images to a photo lab themselves, now that the magical age of digital photography was upon us and allowed for that sort of thing.

Although I did offer albums as an option on my pricing list, I didn’t promote them in any way, and only one couple out of 90 in those first three years ordered one. At the time, I thought I was saving people money – that I was giving them the gift of DIY-ing to their heart’s desire.

Then I read an article saying that 95% of couples hadn’t done anything with their DVD of wedding images when interviewed five years after their wedding. It was still sitting in a drawer somewhere, just another stressor on their ever-lengthening to-do list. The thought that there could be drawers all over the country that hold thousands and thousands of dollars worth of wedding images in them, hidden away, seemed like an unfortunate misappropriation of funds (to put it mildly). This is not even to mention all the memories that could be lost when these couples find out their DVD has started to degrade over time. Read more

How to sell wedding albums

Came apon this post by By  on how to sell wedding albums:

Do you love having your images printed in beautiful albums for your clients? Do you care about quality, presentation and professionalism in your craft? Do every one of your clients get an album, though?

If you are like 80% of professional photographers, then your answer is most likely “yes” to the first two questions, and “no” to the last.

I want to show you how to be in the 20% of professional photographers who consistently deliver beautifully finished albums to every one of their clients. I’d like to show you how you can discuss, present and sell albums effectively, and also how to make a great income from doing so. Read more

The Case Against ‘Good Enough’

Found this post on Kathleen Trenske’s blog page recently

My parents have exactly 18 professional images from their wedding. Eighteen. I know them inside and out. I could describe each image to you so well that a sketch artist would be able to recreate them.

How do I know them so well? Because I’ve looked at them hundreds of times. I’ve looked at them hundreds of times because they were on display, in an album. An album that was made by a professional, filled with prints made through a professional lab and bound in a book available only to professionals. From the time I was a little girl I was fascinated by it — seeing my parents so young, my grandparents and aunts and uncles surrounding them. It was a simple leather book, with the images slipped in and preserved behind plastic but it held up surprisingly well over time. Even though I looked at it more times than I could count. Even though this May those images will turn 42 years old. Read more

Why couples should have a wedding album.

The Importance of a Wedding AlbumBoho Weddings:  link to the post:


Today I’d like to talk to you about wedding albums. A lot of the things I talk about on the blog are experiences and information I pick up as a wedding blogger, or as  a wedding planner, or through talking to my industry friends. Other things are from my experience as a bride and today’s topic is one of those.

As you know I got married in Ibiza, my wedding photography is still a bone of contention, and something I would SO go back and change if I could. I really wasn’t prepared for how important the wedding photography was going to be for me after the wedding, and for that reason I just didn’t do enough research or allocate enough of our budget to this area. For this reason I am now unhappy with our photographs. I realise I talk about photography a lot on the blog and this is probably the reason, I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I did!
