“Without exception, the best photos of our friends and family that we have ever seen. Every photo is so natural, unselfconscious and relaxed, such a wonderful reminder of the way it felt to be in the room at the time. We are over the moon with the beautiful photos and will treasure them forever.”The Waring Family | Wedding Reception

Your special occasion photos deserve more than a brief outing on Facebook, and I think you’ll love them so much more in a real book you can curl up on the sofa with. You’re very welcome to make your own album, but if you’d rather not spend your evenings and weekends toiling away at your computer I would love to make it for you.

My Hardback Photographic Books make for a very special souvenir that you’ll not find on the high street. They’re made with thick sheets of premium lustre photopaper, bound in glossy hardback, and available in 12×12 and 8×8 (inches). I also offer discounted duplicates in the same size or smaller, ideal for grandparents or other relatives.
