Following up on my post from last year highlighting some of my wedding photo albums, I have recently added one more amazing new option to the mix. So I am updating my Signature album line blog post one more time!
I wanted to repeat my previous post to take some time to highlight the newest Minneapolis wedding photography products that I am proud to be carrying – gorgeous luxury wedding photo albums from Graphistudio! Graphistudio is one of the longest-running and most prestigious wedding album manufacturers in the world, with their founding in 1982 in Italy. Even today, the albums are still made at their headquarters in Italy, and they have grown to open offices all over the world. Luckily the US headquarters is right here in Minneapolis! I’m going to highlight four albums for you to get a sense of the variety, customizability and craftsmanship of their albums. Today I am highlighting my high-end Signature wedding album line. You can read more about my Premium line of albums (a slightly more budget-friendly option, still crafted by GraphiStudio) here.
First up we have Amanda + Dan’s wedding photo album. All of my Graphistudio wedding photo albums come with an incorporated, protective Design Box that keeps the album safe from damage, dust and light. The exterior features the black Touch material (a luxurious soft finish) with names and custom-designed crest printed with raised, silver foil. The box interior features metallic silver linen, as well as a yellow satin ribbon (with yellow and gray being Amanda + Dan’s wedding colors, the choices were fitting.) The album itself features one of the highlights of Graphi’s custom options – a brushed silver metal cover with printed image, fitted perfectly with a beautiful infrared image from Amanda + Dan’s wedding day. The album is bound with a supple bright yellow leather, again echoing Amanda + Dan’s wedding colors. The interior pages are a beautiful photo paper with protective coating, ensuring decades of enjoyment by family and friends.
Next I would like to highlight Anna + Brandon’s wedding photo album. Their wedding took place in downtown Minneapolis at the Dayblock Event Center, with portraits taken at and behind the Mill City Museum and Mill Ruins area of Minneapolis. It seemed fitting to customize their Design Box (as well as the album binding) with Graphi’s Maple material in a color that reflected the rustic, worn wood of the old structures of the area. Contrasting the Maple’s worn wood feel was Graphi’s Crystal cover – emulating the reflections of glass throughout the city. The Maple and Crystal were paired with a green linen Design Box interior as well as the blue ribbon to contrast as well as coordinate with their blue wedding color. The photos were printed on Graphi’s stunning metallic photo paper with satin finish, really making the images pop off the page.
Next is Katie + Robert’s wedding photo album. Their wedding took place at the Cottage Vineyard and Winery in Menomonie, WI. The Design Box features a fitting cork cover material printed with their names in an elegant script font. The interior is a beautiful Pearl Linen. The two paired together highlight the rustic elegance of Katie + Robert’s day. The satin ribbon is a bright white. The album itself features another highlight of Graphistudio’s – the soft, velvety Sequoia distressed leather. Note that the engraved text on the cover is actually cut directly out of the leather material to give the dimensional quality of debossed text. And images are printed on beautiful satin photo paper with satin coating.
Last but not least, I would like to highlight Lauren + Wes’ wedding photo album. Their wedding took place at Rum River Barn + Vineyard. Their Design Box features a Pearl Linen custom-printed with a fall-themed graphic to highlight the gorgeous colors during the season of their wedding. The interior is a rustic burlap-style linen to contrast with their rustic barn theme. The satin ribbon is purple which was their wedding color. The album itself features a white wood cover (echoing the white barn in which their reception was held) with laser engraved names. It also features the gorgeous, velvety Sequoia distressed leather on spine and back, as well as the gorgeous satin metallic paper interior throughout.
My newest addition is Safiyyah + Rory’s Signature wedding photo album. Their wedding took place at Aria in Minneapolis. We start their album with a rustic wooden box that features Safiyyah + Rory’s names laser engraved. The interior of the box is a subtly elegant pearl linen. The album cover features a blue glazed metal. The names, along with artwork of delicate “twinkling” stars is laser engraved out of the blue so the silver metal from below is showing through. The album is then bound together with the velvety suede of the Sequoia distressed leather. The presentation is finished off with the beautiful satin ribbon.
Oh, and how could I forget? I can also create Parent Album copies of your wedding photo albums too!
I’ve got these and other wedding photo album samples as well to view, so please don’t hesitate to call and coordinate a time to meet at my Minneapolis wedding photography studio so I can show you these amazing albums!
