My sample portfolio wedding album came and I am so happy with it. The album is really nice and chunky and the pages are really thick meaning it will last forever. The quality of print is great and it has printed with everything exactly how I made it. The album also comes in its own bag and then in a protective box. The whole album looks very professional and it is just what I wanted. I ordered the leather cover as, well I like leather covers really but also I think it will be popular with couples too. Here are some pictures of the album, but they really don’t do it justice!
After a lot of shopping around, I chose sim imaging to use as my regular album supplier. Sim imaging are really great for allowing you to completely customise your products and make them completely unique, which I feel is so important when creating different wedding albums, as each wedding and each client is different.
I now am able to let couple choose exactly how they would like their album, not only that, it allows me to be creative too. Sim imaging has software that you can download on your computer which it essentially a completely blank canvas, allowing me to be as creative as I want to be.
However this will still be to what the client has chosen, although I will the one designing and making the album, sim imaging lets you customise every part of the album and also lets you order duplicate smaller albums for other family members.
Overall I am so happy with my sample album, I already have clients that have enquired about albums so I am looking for to showing it off and getting some orders in.
Today I sat at my desk with every intention of organising myself for everything that has to be done over the coming week with ordering my book and organising prints for exhibition. None of that went to plan.. I got carried away updating my website, which then took all day… Ooops!
However, It did need doing! I have had an incomplete about me page for about 6 months now so am glad I finally got that completed even though I hate writing about myself. I think it’s about up to date now, however, I will have some more work to do on it once I receive my wedding album in order to try and promote them.
Although it’s not what I had planned for today, still a productive day!

During my current practice of wedding and portrait photography there are different photographers work in the same field whose work has inspired or influenced my work. There are a many photographers who’s work I follow closley and am constantly interested in the work they are producing.
One of these Photographers is Marie Anson Photography, Marie specialises in wedding photography and is based in Derbyshire which is where I am also from. I first found Marie on Facebook where herbage popped up and her style of wedding photography really caught my eye. Marie describes herself as a Lifestyle Photographer, meaning she documents natural, fun and romantic images whilst providing a little guidance and support. I find that Marie’s work stands out from other work I have seen and she has a unique, rustic brand throughout all of her images and branding of bossiness that makes me recognise her images instantly. All her images are so natural, both the way she has taken the images and her interaction with her clients, making beautiful images.

Marie keeps her social media regulaly updated which has now grown to a high professional online presence, but also great publicity for her great work.
Today I met up with potential wedding clients Jason & Amiee who rang me last wedding enquiring about booking me as their wedding photographer for August 2018.
The meeting went really well and they were really impressed with my portfolio and pricing. Which meant they have now officially booked me as their wedding photographer.
