Graphistudio wedding album

12 07 2010

A Graphistudio album preview from a wedding at Hatton Court Hotel.

When the wedding is over it is time for us to do our work in providing the wedding album and editing photographs which clients see in their preview gallery, and where they select the photographs that they like the most.

The next stage is designing the album pages, In this post we have the GraphiStudio wedding book  pages showing just a few of the pages. As you can see the design layout  shows some page design types and is not the final wedding book designs.

It is important to talk with the client and get a feel for what they like and also to talk about the design, layout and the selection of images they have selected, this is generally to show the client what can be achieved and that certain photographs work better than others in the design and of course telling the story of the wedding itself.

As you can see, there is a change in two of the photographs in this pages design.

You can see there are two pictures that we have changed for these pages.

Once the design has been selected and approved, the next step in the process is colour matching the images. When you take a photograph often you find that the lighting is a little different with each photo as the sun light changes, therefore the images on each page set need to be balanced  as it is not very nice looking at lighter and darker images and takes away the ‘flow’ of the book when it is completed. Also retouching and editing is carried out to improve the images.

As you may notice from the gallery and posts I would say around 90% of the images shown on the website are straight from the camera and have not been retouched in post production. For example this wedding in Cheltenham shows images that post production has taken place. Viewing the slide show of the wedding where no post production has been carried out shows the difference within the wedding photo’s. (note the slide show requires a plug-in to play)

A short slide show was also produced for the wedding which we are previewing in the wedding book design, which you can see here:

Site updates

11 01 2010

We have been working on the wedding photography website  and still have a long way to go in getting all the information on the wedding venues and the photos that we have done at these venues.

There has been an update for the wedding venues:

Tortworth Court is the most recent wedding venue post that we have made.

We have updated the wedding photography gallery to 86 pictures and also added a slide show to the pages function. If you click any of the images, a slide show will open and will preview all the wedding photos for you.

Also posted was a sampled mixed album preview, this shows some of the designs that we do. Of course some of these previews made it to the album design page of the website.

We have also  started writing through the wedding photography packages so that they now have price information and some more detail on the packages. We still have the luxury packages to deal with as these are a little more complex due to the amount of items with the packages and also deciding what will be offered to best suit the clients.

At the moment the Luxury packages are set as:
Wedding rehearsal/ engagement photo shoot with an album of its own.
All day photography on the wedding day (with a main album for the bride and groom,  2 parent albums,  and 8 pocket books for friends and family). And an Album with selected images and designed by your photographer.
Total of 12 wedding albums!! PLUS..Short listed selection of prints in a proof book for you to keep.

 6 Small canvas prints and 2 large canvas prints. ( ideal for bridesmaid and grooms men gifts with the smaller canvases and the larger two for the bride and grooms pictures)

Online gallery ( for image selection and album previews)

A DVD Slide show of your Images mixed with any video that we take. This can be mixed with the guests video, but it is not meant for a replacement for professional video packages, just as  a little perk that you cannot get from one man band photographers.
A Digital Negatives disc with fully edited images and copyright licence. This would mean a copy of the unedited photos, and edited photographs that have been retouched. Also there would be the album previews on these discs.

As you can see there is good reason why this wedding photography package has been called luxury as it seems to have all areas covered and has greatly considered the family with this package.
