The Coffee Table Book was established back in 2006 when digital photography took over the world and professional photographers began delivering wedding photos as digital files on CDs.
With all these CDs containing digital wedding photos being handed out, The Coffee Table Book was born out of a need for married couples to have the option to access high quality wedding albums other than through their wedding photographer.
Wedding photography has evolved over the years, we saw digital files being delivered via CD, then DVD and now USB and even digital delivery via some form of Cloud storage service or photo gallery.
It’s such a tragedy that those precious memories you spent hard earned money on, end up sitting on a media device in your draw gathering dust or up in the Cloud rarely getting a look at.
While the delivery of your wedding photos has changed, the opportunity to own your very own printed wedding photo albums has not.
Wedding photo albums too have evolved over the years! No more slip-in or stick-in albums. Our digitally printed Fine Art Wedding Albums are stunners! We think of them more like a limited edition art book but with your photos! The professional lay flat photo books use flat lay binding with matte finish on the fine art paper makes viewing photos a true delight, besides being able to layout photos across the full double page spread.
We turn your wedding photos into beautiful handmade wedding photo albums to last a lifetime. Forget the traditional albums your parents or grandparents had that hide away in the cupboard because they are too big and bulky. Our albums are easily the best wedding photo books in Australia that are more like a modern art book.
Simply provide your wedding photos, either supplied on a USB, digital device, harddrive or online gallery. We design beautiful pages that tell the story of your wedding day, then professionally print and bind them into a modern album you will proudly want to leave on your coffee table to share and enjoy with loved ones to re-live your special day.
Available in a variety of materials and colours – traditional black and navy, natural tones, pastels and bold colours. Personalise the wedding album cover with custom name embossing too.
The fine art album features sturdy pages that lay flat when open allowing for full page panoramic landscape images to run across the entire spread uninterrupted.
Every page is professional quality fine art paper with a matte finish and then bound by hand to create the finished album.
Showcase hundreds of your wedding day memories in our albums and photo books. Starting with 30 pages (15 spreads) up to 90 pages (45 spreads) full of wedding photos.
We’ve simplified the design process with our in-house design service. Simply hand over all of your digital wedding photos and we will pick the best images from the day to use in the page layouts. Either post us your USB, provide a link to your online gallery of high-res images provided by your photographer or online services such as Dropbox or Google Drive and we will download them from your gallery.
Through our online proofing system, you will have the opportunity to review the design and make changes before going to print, ensuring all your favourite wedding day images and more make it into the album.
Simply, we do all the work for you! Your only job is to review the design, let us know any changes you want, and after we make the changes you approve the design for print and binding. The finished album is then delivered to its forever home within 2-3 weeks plus allow for shipping time.
The majority of our clients use professional photographers to capture their wedding day. We highly recommend using a professional photographer to capture one of the most special days to occur in your lifetime and a day that cannot be repeated. Read more about why we recommend professional wedding photographers – and Yes! it does make a huge difference using quality professional photography to the finished wedding album!
For The Coffee Table Book to design a wedding album for couples, you must either own full copyright, shared copyright with your photographer, or you must have permission/rights to use the photos for personal use.
Australian Copyright Laws in the case of domestic photography (weddings and portraits) automatically gives the copyright ownership to the customer. However, most professional wedding photographers have their clients sign a contract stipulating the copyright is reassigned to the photographer but the client has either shared-copyright or rights to use the images for personal usage only. Having shared-copyright or rights to use the images for personal use does give you permission to print your wedding photos in one of our wedding albums. We always recommend reading contracts and making sure you understand the terms and conditions before signing. If in doubt, please read your contract or check the terms with your photographer.
We work with couples all over Australia and can’t wait to design your album.
