We often have discussions at the studio about creating albums without any input from the clients. It seems the logical way to create albums that we are happy with, the counter argument of course is that we want clients to have the images that they want in their albums – after all they are their albums. My opinion tends to swing back and forth depending on what that week’s clients chose for their album, on a week where a client has completely misunderstood my aesthetic, missed what I thought was special about their wedding and has chosen 80 posed group photos for the album, well on those weeks I tend to wonder why they chose us as their photographer and start dreaming about what their album could have looked like. In the last couple of weeks though, we have seen some killer bee albums come and go through the studio. With your indulgence I’d like to showcase a couple of those.
This one from Gretha and Carl-Gustav’s wedding out in the Free State. It is pretty much what I’d like an album to look like, classical and elegant with a sense of timelessness.
You’re looking at double page spreads from an Asuka album – they’re just over half a meter wide.
