The coolest Albums yet.

I felt today somewhat like the wise men must have felt bearing precious gifts... Mine just happened to be a perfect album from Italy. I was so extremely happy today when that thing got here... (I swear I was on UPS's website Tracking that dude every 2 minutes. Obsessed? Maybe.) The cool part is that this album was for one of my local Chicago area clients and so I drove it straight to where my client works... ***Just after*** I did a quick product shoot of the album. It cracked me up how much I enjoyed taking pictures of my pictures. 

The way I see it is, my wedding albums are the final touch of art that completes your wedding photography. Without it you lack the storyteller. You have a lot of beautiful windows that look back on your day but where are you going to hang all 200 of your favorites? There is nothing wrong with having a DVD... Just do something with them for Ol' St. Nick's sake. (Say that three times fast. lol) Once your images are in an album, which here at Photography by Britton, we take with pride, it's like the day comes to life again as each spread brings with it the story that happened around your favorite memories. Memories  that you might not have room to hang on your wall. Storytelling is what your wedding photography should be all about. Not just good pictures. It's saving the entire day in a way that you can relive over and over again pass it down to your children so they too can see what your wedding looked like. And what day is more important than that of your wedding day? The day you changed your life forever, started a family, and became one? 

And that is a sample of the passion I have behind each photo I take and every album we build.

I am choosing only a few of the spreads in this album to share with you now. 

Note that there is no seem on any page. Just one solid smooth image all the way across.

Above the album are two smaller albums. Not of the same quality, but mirror in design the couples book exactly. I call these the parent albums. A lot of my clients like to get them as thank you or even Christmas Gifts for their parents. 

I love pointing out that the pages are thick and don't bend giving it a super quality build.

All in all the book weighs quite a lot and is worth in my opinion, 
more than gold.
