Here at Krystal & Co. Photography we're not only passionate about taking pictures, but printing as well. Our signature albums are like being newly-wed; you can't keep your hands off 'em!
It's probably safe to say you have hundreds, if not thousands, of photos saved on your phone, computer, tablet, and all over social media. But how many of those have you actually printed?! There is certainly something special about holding an album in your hands. It's a book that tells your story, a chapter of your life. One that you can pick up and look back on with friends and family. Albums become a family heirloom that are passed along to the next generation. Your story and legacy will live on as hands turn the pages of our incredibly beautiful albums.
Whether your images are from a wedding, family, senior, or maternity session, our albums and books are custom-designed for everyone.
Our albums and books are beautifully crafted, built to last, and come in a variety of sizes and designs. We have something for everyone! It's an absolute must that you love your album, so you'll be very much involved in the design process! We have samples of all the albums and books we offer so you know exactly what you're getting! Before the design process begins, we like to meet with you and let you pick out your cover and imprinting options from the samples. That way, when the album is ready to be sent off for printing, we have everything we need!
The albums feature a panoramic design. Pages are mounted flush (on a 1/32" board) and are extended across the entire spread without splitting at the spin. Albums have a minimum of 10 spreads and hold up to 50 spreads. Plenty of room for your entire session or wedding day!
Our clients use their digital collections to favorite the images they love most for their albums and books. Then our team is able to see the exact photos they've picked. No more sorting through hundreds of images and writing down image numbers! Our system is easy peasy!
Next, we'll begin designing the layout of our client's album or book using the images they picked. Once the first draft is ready, it's sent via email as a digital proof. Our clients are able to flip through the digital pages and make revisions using the comments section on each page. All the images on each spread are numbered and make it super easy for both of us to understand which photo the client is referring to when wanting to make changes!
Once all the revisions are made, we'll confirm the cover options and our client will approve the album design. Next, it's carefully submitted for printing on my most favorite photographic paper yet: Fujii Deep Matte. It's AMAZING! The album or book is then delivered a couple of days later to the client's front door. Clients gasp at its perfection and proudly display it.
