Album advice from a Wedding Photographer in Saratoga
You think you don’t want a wedding album. You think you will just do it yourself from an inexpensive online wedding album company.
As a wedding photographer in Saratoga, I have decades of experience shooting weddings in all areas and wedding venues in Saratoga Springs NY.
Today, so many couples ask only about digital files. And that’s fine. But digital cameras aren’t toasters, where you push a button and the universal thing we all accept as “toast” comes out. The assumption is that you push the button on a camera and a fully realized, retouched, perfect artistic image just appears. Not by a long shot …
I am the one who takes all of that raw, cold data that a camera produces and turns it into the photos you see on my blog and web site. Computers and photoshop actions don’t do that. And if all you want from your photographer is digital files, then all you’re going to get are “digital negatives” which will need to be brought to life.
One of the ways I bring your images to life is in a book, an album or with an art-print.
And these beautifully prepared images are all collected in … an album.

Today, let’s talk about the leather wedding album
My albums are different from my coffee table books. The pages are actual full bleed photographs. They layout is custom (just like the coffee table book). This album is hand bound in the US. It’s a beautiful product that will serve you and your family well for decades.
With all of my books and albums, there never are any hidden fees or upgrade charges, like cover charges. The album you saw in our meeting is the album that is available to you.
The leather album is generally a little larger, heavier, with thick pages that can’t be bent. It is a dramatic statement and a timeless presentation. And keep in mind that what one company calls a leather album may not be of this quality and made with the attention to detail as this one is. Often, they are bulk printed overseas.
Let’s talk about your album today. I love talking with my clients after their wedding, when they have all of their beautiful images in hand, so that we can make a custom wedding album for them.
