Wedding Photography’s Perfect Complement :: Cypress Handmade Albums

April 28th, 2011  |  Posted in products, uncategorized, weddings

From the very first moment I considered focusing my photojournalism skills and experience on weddings I immediately knew I would offer Cypress Albums to my clients and I’ve never regretted that decision.  Every delivery from Cypress is a moment of celebration for me.  It begins the moment I rip open the delivery box, peel back the protective packaging and BAM! there it is — a beautifully packaged album begging me to open it, but very, very carefully because I can’t bear to disturb the perfectly tied ribbon and personalized tag.   It feels good in my hands, weighty but not cumbersome and my fingers explore the rich texture of the Japanese fabric and the silky Swiss ribbon.

Cypress describes their albums as “simple, unique and elegantly designed to highlight your images.”  I couldn’t agree more!

Exquisite Works of Art by Cypress Albums

June 25th, 2010  |  Posted in products

Wendi and I like to think of ourselves as reasonable people, but when it comes to albums we are down-right stubborn! We strongly believe every couple should have an album (more on that subject soon) and no ordinary album will do. Your wedding story deserves something special – a timeless presentation that highlights your images. When we were introduced to Cypress Albums and Boxes it was love at first sight and we knew they were the one for us!

Where do I even begin?  The descriptions alone are enough to make me swoon.

Wedding Photography :: Albums

Because we are working with more out-of-town brides I thought I would post some photos of one of the album choices included with each of the packages we offer. It’s a bit tricky to really explain an album over the phone or through email.

This is our flush-mount album by Cypress Albums. It is a sophisticated custom, made-to-order handcrafted book by the artisans at Cypress. The album is bound in an elegant Japanese bookbinding fabric — which you get to choose from over 18 colors. This is one of the most finely crafted albums available. We hope you love it as much as we do!

This shows the thickness of the pages.
