SSP’s Newest Wedding Album is Here!

April 1, 2019

Filed in: Products

If you caught my Instagram Stories last night, you saw a little preview of my newest addition…a 12×12 vegan leather wrapped lay flat wedding album!  I used Jenna and Armando’s beautiful McMinnville wedding for this one, and I can’t get over how vibrant and true to life the colors are.  It’s one thing to spend HOURS staring at these images as I edit them on a computer screen, it’s a totally different experience to see them printed out!  It’s like falling in love with that gallery all over again!

This sample wedding album comes along with me to client consultations and bridal expos, and it comes with a few upgrades that are new this year to my album offerings.  First–you get to see this PERFECT  vegan leather in person!  My previous sample albums have been linen wrapped.  I’m a sucker for the natural texture and organic feel of woven fabric.  This vegan leather though is so, SO soft and has the perfect subdued texture that looks almost like the real thing.  Like seriously.  I can’t stop touching it!  And I was worried about the white, since these sample albums do get handled quite a bit.  The linen has held up well over the years of being hauled to consults and expos.  So far, so good with the vegan leather.  I just couldn’t resist how awesome the gold lettering would look on white, so I had to do it!  There are plenty of other color options though in this material, like soft blue, grey, ivory, or my personal favorite, coral!

I mean, look at that gold imprint on the cover and spine!  I’m in LOVE.

The pages are lay flat, which means that you can open this album up on your coffee table to a specific page, and it will stay on that page instead of closing.  So open it up to your favorite picture of you two, and that’s the first thing guests will see when they sit down to check out your album!

This is also a 12×12 size, which is bigger than I used to offer.  I love that it makes it even easier to see those big, epic portraits!
