This week has been a pretty exciting one all round. Sam’s birthday aside- we’ve had some very exciting deliveries. First we took delivery of a whole load of new prints. All sizes, bright beautiful colours and from all kinds of weddings. You can see a little sneaky look at those over on our instagram page. A separate post about prints may be coming soon. But for now, wedding albums.
Even more exciting than the prints was the delivery of a brand new sample album! For virtually our whole photography career we have used the same suppliers. Their albums are pretty and great quality. Classics. But there’s never anything new. The albums, the collections, the options, the ranges have all been pretty much the same since we first ordered several years ago. So we thought it was time to look for something a bit more contemporary and offer our clients choice.
So many of you have been asking about wedding albums lately and all we’ve had to show you are older samples which just aren’t very exciting. We’d been reluctant to order more samples from the old supplier as we just knew that moving forward we wanted to be able to offer something else too. So this has been long awaited all round!
Trust me when I say that it was not easy finding another supplier that ticked all our boxes. We wanted something contemporary but classic. Stylish, but understated. We wanted top quality printing, durability and the promise that these heirlooms would stand the test of time. Using environmentally friendly products and services is of the upmost importance to us, so that was a factor too. We had no interest in shipping in albums from half way around the world. Nor did we want unethical cover options to dominate. So when we finally happened upon our new supplier we were overjoyed!
Our new albums are handmade by a small team of skilled craftsmen. They use recycled and sustainable materials. Even the bubble wrap for packaging is biodegradable and the materials for their cardboard boxes are sourced locally. It was this commitment to sustainability that initially encouraged us to order, but it was the final product which has completely swayed us. We will now be using this manufacturer for all future album orders.
If you are interested in a bespoke wedding album we would love to hear from you. We can discuss your options and advise on things like how many pages you may need.
For a limited time we are offering all existing clients a discount on wedding albums as we would just love for you to be able to enjoy your photos in print like this. We are not ones to discount at all typically as we like to offer fair pricing as standard, but these are special and we truly feel that every couple deserves to have such a perfect reminder of their day within reach. If you would like to discuss your wedding album options with us, start by popping us an email. Hello@samandlouise.co.uk
The current discount of £100 off is available to all past present and future couples who currently have a booking with us. This offer is valid until May 31st, 2018.
