Soften summer weddings with a Velvet album

Weeks of sunshine this summer have given UK photographers a dilemma - the golden hour is too late for sunset portraits, and for daytime weddings fill-in flash or an assistant with a reflector have been the best ways to tame the light.


Based in Scotland, The Wee Album Company established by award-winning wedding photographer David Bryce know this only too well - with some highland and island wedding venues needing a 10pm shoot for sunset by castle or loch with the couple.

Fortunately the dynamic range of the latest pro camera choices handles high summer well, and by printing on The Wee Album Company’s favourite real photographic paper, Fujfilm Crystal Archive Professional Velvet, the smoothest tones from dark suit shadows to wedding gown whites are captured.

This paper has a very tactile surface, almost like a 'soft touch’ laminate, and resists fingerprints well. Combined with the back to back lay-flat page mounting of TWAC’s photo books it feels as good as it looks. It is one of four real photographic and fine art printing options offered in the hand-made album range, and ideal for the high proportion of colour pages brides will be expecting from their gloriously sunny summer celebrations.
