Albums

One of the things we’ve noticed is that when we want to relive our wedding day, we pull out our printed wedding album and we pull it out often; we don’t often pull up our digital files. I think we’ve looked at our digital images less than 10 times in the last 5 years.  Print simply outclasses digital when it comes to images.

We have also learned that technology changes… quickly. For example, Apple has stopped offering computers with CD/DVD drives completely.  So ultimately every person will have to go back and constantly transfer their images over to the latest piece of technology.  Compare that to your parent’s old school Pakistani or Indian wedding album.  It’s still your parent’s Pakistani or Indian wedding photo album… it’s not a floppy disk from 25 years ago that requires you to pull out the old Gateway computer from the attic.

We haven’t yet mentioned the difference between holding a physical, tangible item and the debate on albums versus digital files is already heavily in favor of the photo album.  Now put that together with the fact that we exclusively use the premier wedding photo album company, Queensberry and it’s a done deal.

When you choose Akbar Sayed Photography you won’t have to worry about being nickel and dime’d for for add-ons.  We know that any wedding photography experience would be incomplete without a beautiful wedding album.  Secondly, we also know that cutting corners is simply not who we are so it just felt right that every one of our wedding collections comes with a genuine leather bound, 10″x10″ Flushmount Queensberry album.

The only album add-on we have are parent albums.  Our parent albums, by the way, are 7”x7” copies of your 10”x10” album with the only difference being that there is no translucent cover sheet for the parent albums.

We’ve made the process for creating your wedding photo album with us is easy and simple.  It’s easy to fall into analysis by paralysis when attempting to choose options for your album so we’ve gone ahead and made the choices so you don’t have to worry about it.  It is important to us that your album is something that looks beautiful and timeless thirty years from now so each of the choices made reflect that goal.  We chose to work with thier flushmount albums as they are hand binded and have beautiful construction.  We then started with a black genuine leather cover that is embossed with both you and your spouse’s names.  Other colors are more like to show dirt and dust as they age.  Next we went with the highest quality paper that Queensberry provides with their flushmount albums.  

You choose 80-90 of your favorite unwatermarked images in your online gallery.  We will then send it over to Queensberry’s wedding album design team and they will create a template.  You’ll be able to then view and proof the album through their own album-proofing page and request any changes you like.  Once you approve the design o

f your wedding album, production will begin.  All wedding albums are shipped directly to my office in Leesburg, Virginia.  From start of production  and it typically takes 6-8 weeks to arrive.  If you’re local in the D.C, Maryland and Virginia area we can meet in person over some coffee and present the album.  The in case we’re not able to make a time work or you’re not local I’ll just ship your album to your home :-).  

Below you can see an example of one of our albums.  Annie and Zeeshawn had a three day Indian wedding in the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia area (DMV).  You can see the exceptional quality of work and beautiful attention to detail.  Check out the beautiful heavy silver halide paper and the quality of the album all built by hand. The images below show how our beautiful albums look but be sure to schedule a in person consultation to see how they feel in person.
