I spent hours at photography trade shows looking at album after album company. Finally I came to a conclusion that the quality that Asuka Book offers is one that I feel great about offering my clients! Asuka Book creates coffee-table style books that the photographer designs themselves, and then sends their design to Asuka to be printed. I’ve printed my own portfolio with Asuka, and I use them as my #1 wedding album.
The album that I order are the Animal Friendly Leather 10×10 album:
The FLX AsukaBook has the feel of fine leather in an “Animal Friendly” product. This faux “leather” has a wonderful feel and will be very consistent from book to book. This book is available in a variety of colors with optional personalized hot stamp text. This book is showcased in a stylish custom designed presentation box.
The pages have a protective varnish coating or a laminate coating in a matte or glossy finish to preserve their appearance for years to come.
Here are a few shots of our sample albums we have at the studio:
A lot of great things have been going on at Love Me Do Photography as we kick off this Spring season of weddings! We are all very excited with the weddings we are shooting this year.
We love seeing how creative couples can get with the planning of their wedding. We’ve been meeting with so many inspiring individuals with great ideas, and it’s getting us pumped to photograph them. This year Amanda and Carina are looking forward to a few beach weddings, a wedding at Lucy the Elephant, a central park NYC wedding, a bowling alley wedding, a 4th of July celebration wedding, a few weddings on farms, and so many other beautiful locations! Amanda and I will get to travel to Central PA, the Jersey Shore, NYC, Buffalo NY, and Boston this year. Nadine will also be shooting quite a few weddings beach weddings, a wedding near City Hall in Philly, Valley Forge park, and even a wedding at the cool castle-like Baldwin School.
Some new products we’re excited about is a new online proofing site we’re going to try out this year, and additional wedding album options for couples who like a more traditional album as opposed to a coffee-table book.
We’ve been connecting with other photographers in our area as well as other wedding vendors, expanding our list of referrals, as well as trading ideas for techniques, products, and networking. This year we will be keeping an eye out for any “green” or DIY elements in our clients’ weddings, and posting them on our blog as inspiration to other couples planning their weddings.
Other big news for myself, is that Carina will be in France from April 30th-May 25th traveling, photographing, visiting family and farming!
Also, 2010 might mark a big year for Carina, as she may be moving out to Los Angeles for a year by the end of the fall. She will still be taking weddings for 2010, and will probably move after the last one of the season. Amanda will remain in Philadelphia, so we’ll be shooting coast-to-coast!
That’s about it for now. Keep checking for new wedding photos soon!
