Lately I have been lucky to be able to design some professional wedding albums for a few of this years lovely weddings. I realised that I probably don’t talk about the wedding album service I offer enough. So here is a look in to the professional service you receive when having your wedding album designed with Lindsey Arber Photography.
All of my newlyweds receive an elegant usb with a selection of 20 prints in a presentation box as part of my packages. I also provide a slideshow of the images. This plays along to music making the viewing of your photos even more enjoyable. Wedding albums are an add on service which can be booked in whenever you are ready. I find this works well as it gives my couples a chance to view their photos, and then decide which ones they would like to display. It also carries on the excitement of their wedding for a bit longer after the day itself. If couples have been gifted money for their big day, then some will choose to spend this on an album.
To me there will always be something appealing about having an album to display your photos in. Something to have ready to show your visitors. For them to hold and flick through at their own pace, asking questions as they go. Often a USB will be kept safe in a drawer, where as an album can take pride of place in your lounge. You will most likely end up looking through it more often as it catches your eye. The design process is always nice for me as its a chance to look back through past weddings. I also get to work with those couples again.
When you choose to order your wedding photo album through Lindsey Arber Photography you are choosing a professional service. You can have as much or as little involvement as you like. It is after all your wedding album and we want it to be right for you. I take the stress of trying to design your own album away. Knowing which photos will compliment each other on a page. What will work for layouts and how to balance the amount of photos used through out. You can either leave it in my hands completely, or supply a list of your favourite photos for me to work around. I offer my couples up to three sets of proofs so changes can be made before the album is sent off to print, and always aim to have the first set with you with in a week of the design process starting.
Quality is the most important value to me. I want my couples to have a product they can enjoy for years to come. Something that feels nice when you pick it up and look through the pages. The presentation boxes offer a protective cover to the album inside. They duplicate the front page design so they still look pretty before being opened. The albums themselves have a handmade hardcover and thick card pages inside with photo paper added to each side. This gives stability to the pages and stops the risk of them bending if people are heavy handed. The pages all lay flat which avoids wasting space near the spine of the album, and makes for better displaying of the photos. It really is a perfect way to show your photos to friends and family. Your favourite snippets of the day from start to finish.
I will leave you with some photos of one of my sample wedding albums to take a look at. I am always happy to bring these along to meetings for people to look through in the flesh. If you are a past couple and would like to look in to the options of my professional wedding albums, then please get in touch.

You may have noticed it has been a while since my last blog post! Which is down to being very busy both work wise and personally. So this blog is all about letting you know of the recent goings on at Lindsey Arber Photography.
So last summer was a busy one with lots of beautiful weddings, a very busy studio and all whilst being pregnant with baby Finley. He is turning 6 months as of next Friday (where did that time go?!). At the end of 2017 over the Christmas break, I made the decision to close the studio and focus on the wedding photography side of the business. The studio side of Lindsey Arber Photography was going really well and proving popular however I realised I just wouldn’t be able to meet the demand anymore. My decision to focus on weddings meant I could have a better balance of being a mum but could also carry on doing what I love in photographing lots more weddings!
Finley made his appearance in February of this year and is just amazing! My first wedding of the year was when he was just 7 weeks old and I am so glad I got straight back in to it. My lovely bride and groom of this particular wedding actually invited him along to the day to make it that bit easier which was so thoughtful of them. Luckily he was really well behaved and had a chilled day taking it all in…and mostly sleeping!
I’d decided to keep 2018 a bit quieter on the wedding bookings front as I knew I would still be getting in to the swing of having Finley around. I have still been lucky enough to have some truly beautiful weddings with couples who have made me and my second shooters feel so welcome. I have lots of photos to share from each of the weddings so far, so keep an eye on our social media platforms for updates of our recent work.
2018 has also seen an update to the website which I hope you all like! It is an ongoing task as and when time allows. These decisions always take time but its something that I like to try and perfect whenever a new idea comes to mind, so hopefully worth the wait. What with now focusing on wedding photography, I felt a new logo was needed to better represent where the brand of Lindsey Arber Photography was heading moving forward. As you can see its all about the greys and rose golds. Keeping things simple and elegant to show you are choosing a high end service when booking with us for your wedding photography.
Its exciting to see what the remainder of this years weddings have in store for us, as well as our 2019 & 2020 weddings which are filling up nicely.
One thing I do keep getting asked about are my Autumn Mini Sessions. These have proven very popular for family portraits over the last few years so I will continue to offer these. The clue is in the name that these take place in the Autumn and I will be sharing details of dates and prices very soon for all of you who have been wondering.
I would love it if you did continue to follow us and to keep up to date with our latest work. If you know of anyone getting married who is yet to book their wedding photographer, then why not put us in touch. x

So its been a little while since Monique & Matt’s Pre Shoot back in May but as I was backing up some jobs and had another look through, I just had to share some more with you.
This lovely couple will be getting married in September and I can’t wait to get back to the church in Great Bowden to take more photos. We should by then also have some autumnal colours on the trees which will only add to the photos even more (I have mentioned this a few times before BUT Autumn is my favourite time of the year!).
After their ceremony on the day it will be on to Foxton Locks for the celebrations with their guests, which means even more photo opportunities…in between canapés and bubbles that is!
Booking a Pre Shoot in before your wedding day is always a good idea as it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a bit, to talk through your plans of the day and to try out some of the photo ideas before the day itself. Pre Shoots are always relaxed and fun! Chatting and laughing our way through was definitely something we did for this session.
Here are some more of my favourites from their Pre Wedding Shoot…

I can’t wait to be back at Keythorpe Manor tomorrow with our lovely bride & groom to be, Katherine and Ed!
We met up for their pre shoot at the start of the month, which gave us a great chance to explore the grounds as it was my first time at Keythorpe Manor. As soon as your enter the grounds you are spoilt for choice on where to take photos. The beautiful manor itself provides a lovely backdrop, or the many winding paths through the grounds, and all of this is surrounded by countryside.
Elmo also joined us for some photos, and all though he was a little excited as it was also his first time at Keythorpe, he was amazing in front of the camera!
So tomorrow we will be recreating some of these photos of the newlyweds and I can’t wait to see how the photos on the swing turn out with the bride and groom in a gown and suit!

I recently got to meet up with Amy & Jake again as it was time for their pre wedding shoot, with their wedding only a few weeks away! So off we headed to the beautiful Bassmead Manor Barns to take at look around their chosen venue, discuss last minute details ahead of their big day and to take some photos around the grounds to show the type of photos we could get on the day itself.
We were spoilt for choice for photo opportunities with the tree lined drive leading to the venue, the surrounding landscape of fields as far as the eye could see, and the barn yards surrounded by the stream.
On top of all these options for the photos, we also had the sun shining to finish it all off. I can’t wait to get back to the barns and to recreate some of these with soon to be newlyweds. Here are my favourites for you to take a look through….

It turned out to be the most foggy day of the year so far, but actually I like it! Here are my favourites from Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot.
I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings at Barton Hall on a few occasions now, and loved the difference the fog made to the grounds during the pre wedding shoot!
It was important to capture Vanessa and Nick looking comfortable on camera, especially as they had mentioned how much they don’t like having their photo taken! And that didn’t take long at all as they are so relaxed as a couple so we chatted and joked all the way through. Take a look at their pre shoot photos to see for yourself…
I’m already looking forward to being back at Barton Hall in March to photograph their Wedding Day!
