Today I wanted to spend some more time highlighting my album product line that I am so proud to be carrying – luxury wedding photography 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 two albums for you to get a sense of the variety, customizability and craftsmanship of their albums. My previous blog post highlighted my high-end Signature wedding album line. Today’s post highlights my Premium wedding album line – a more cost-effective option than the Signature line.
First up we have Susan + Robert’s album. All of my Graphistudio albums come with an incorporated, protective Design Box that keeps the album safe from damage, dust and light. This particular wedding’s bride was of Indian heritage, so all of her bridesmaids were wearing gorgeous multi-colored saris that her father brought over directly from India. Also, the bride was wearing her traditional henna designs for her big day, as well as an exquisite Indian gown worn exclusively during the reception. The box’s exterior features the white Touch material (a luxurious soft finish) with debossed ennoblement in a white Indian pattern, giving the piece a subtle, refined Indian texture. The box interior repeats the pattern ennoblement, as well as a sky blue satin ribbon. The blue color was coordinated with the gorgeous album cover – a beautiful photo of Susan + Robert from their day in the gorgeous landscape of the Mendakota Country Club’s golf course pond. The cover was created in Graphi’s newest option, the Crystal Glance cover, featuring a thick crystal clear sheet over a metallic photo, giving a bright, stunning presentation of the photo. The album is bound with a black traditional leather. The interior pages are a beautiful HD-printed photo paper with protective coating, giving remarkable color and detail to the images and ensuring decades of enjoyment by family and friends.
Next we have Alice + Chris’ album. This particular wedding featured a rustic venue at Kellerman’s Event Center with lots of gray, blue and brown tones, so I felt the colored Maple material fit well for the Design Box exterior. The interior of the box features a photo of the bride and groom during the gorgeous fall day at Matoska Park in White Bear Lake with its old oak trees, bright fall color and peek of sunlight shining through. The box interior also featurs a bright yellow satin ribbon offsetting the bright fall colors. The cover of the album features a beautiful photo of Alice + Chris’ rings set on a piece of raw cut wood, again highlighting the wood theme seen throughout their big day. The interior pages of the album are an uncoated watercolor paper, featuring a textured artistic surface and bright, rich tones of each image that will be enjoyed for decades to come.
