To make the photo book I turn to craftsmen exclusively "Made in Italy" who handcraft products of highest quality. The format that I propose is 30x30 which is ideal to have a book with well-proportioned photographs and visual impact.
Thanks to use of advanced technologies using Ultrachrome pigments, the "Made in Italy" handcraft ensures unique features like the long term durability of the press. In addition, the absence of the central cut together with a specific handwork ensures panoramic view across two pages.
Finally, pages are manually assembled on a rigid cardboard returning the thickness of a page of around 1 millimeter, feature which keeps pages perfectly flat during time.
Book layout and selection of photos
I put a lot of care to both create the layout of the wedding book and to decide which pictures should be included. The layout gives shape to the wedding book and creates the final visual result of how it will appear. Specifically, I have chosen a very simple and linear layout of showing pictures with the clear purpose of letting images represent themselves and transfer emotions to people as they look at them. It is the picture, if well done, that has to come out rather than be absorbed by the book itself.
The book is typically made of 70 to 100 photos. The real issue is how to choose them. Often this is a critical moment for the newlyweds who may even postpone a lot the final choice.
In this case, the experience of the photographer may help turning to be the story teller of the wedding day. The right mix of photos which include the most important emotional moments together also with some important details, like the wedding dress, the cuff-links or even the surroundings of the location, helps to re-create the true full story of the wedding day.
The wedding book is one of the few tangible sign of the wedding day, therefore putting particular care in its creation is particularly important.
