With an increase in interest for prints and particularly my package options for wedding albums, I decided to have a look at a new supplier of album solutions who I made contact with at the photography show in Birmingham this year. Aperture books
You can read about my little day out here: –
A change to this supplier means a number of improvements and benefits which i can pass onto my customer, but largely the most exciting prospect is the opportunity to have complete control over every aspect of an wedding album build allowing me to tailor your design to the feel and theme of the day or the preferences of the bride and groom.
In order to take advantage of the all the design options open to me, I had to first spend a little time getting used to their downloadable Aperture books software.
Using any new program for the first time requires a little patience and understating and although I was slightly overwhelmed by the sheer number of options and controls built into the software, I was also surprised at how intuitive and well written the design suite was, so learning was fast!
To test print quality and hard copy production values, I set about building a large A3 (other sizes are available) portfolio book to showcase to brides and grooms that would demonstrate my style and approach as well as the various options for layout, design, paper type, book size, albums finishes and more. (dont worry, I would choose the best design options based on your preferences)
The results were… beautiful.

But the album now forms part of my work that I bring to every new visit as its important for people to see the quality of the prints and paper types available (this portfolio album contains three paper types on 300gsm Uncoated art paper, 300gsm Silk laminated paper and 300gsm Gloss laminated paper).
Aperture books are hand made to the highest quality standards, its the main reason why I now choose them as a supplier of prints and books for all my clients as I do not want to compromise on quality prints in the same way I will not compromise over quality photographs of your wedding day.
At Aperture books our hand crafted quality photobooks, are tailored for professional photographers across the UK and Europe. Each book is treated with the same level of care and attention deployed in your own work
Of course this portfolio is only one album size available to you. Depending on your package choice and album preferences you can choose from A4, A5, A6 or square sizes to suit your needs.
