Albums Samples :: Upgrades

Albums Samples :: Upgrades

To all my future 2012 brides out there… this one’s for you.  I received in the mail today my first upgraded sample album and I could barely stop myself from jumping up and down (continuously) when I opened the box!  My standard albums included in my wedding packages are 10×10 Flush Mount Albums, and they’re fabulous.  Elegant, heavy duty albums to remember your wedding day by… perfection.  I wanted something to present to clients during our meetings that was a little different, to show them a bunch of different options for their albums… upgrades that included a larger 12×12 album, ten more printed sides, a slipcase to keep the album nice for years to come, and a photo plate cover (love!).  I am thrilled with Leather Craftsman and their attention to detail, so I couldn’t wait to play around with templates, fabric swatches, and cover materials and really make something unique… something that just oozes amanda joy Photography.  Here’s what I came up with…


Upgraded leather and slip case

Photo plated cover… this is a very heavy duty plated photo front that allows for a picture across the entire front of the album.. love!

You can actually see how thick the plate is below…

Jaclyn & Tim :: Anytime

I love Anytime shoots… when that day comes for me and I finally get hitched… my husband will live and breath Anytime Shoots.  I firmly believe in having photos done with your Hubby once a year, so when Jaclyn reach out to me to do an casual Anytime shoot, I was thrilled!  Jaclyn & Tim’s one year anniversary just passed and we thought, what better idea then to capture a few simple photos of them to celebrate!  Some may say, that’s silly… but I think it’s so important to capture some nice photos with you and your husband because before you know it…. little ones are running around and all of the sudden, your time is.. well, not your time anymore!  It’s so nice to have some new photos to frame after the wedding!

We shot for about an hour, and Jaclyn and Tim make it SO easy for me.  Can you say photogenic?  My goodness!  Here’s a few photos for you to enjoy…
