I've been wanting to share a sample KISS wedding album for a while now and finally put one together from Andrea and Ryan's beautiful fall wedding this past October. These albums truly are a thing of beauty, and their quality cannot be matched by any of the consumer base photography albums that I have tried in comparison. KISS Books is only for professional photographers and if you order a wedding album through Melissa Engle Photography, they are the company that I will use.
Below are detail images of a 10x10 inch hand crafted leather album with thick pages. I could not believe how much this thing weighed when I pulled it out of the box! There are three options for packaging; a soft cloth dust cover, a recycled cardboard presentation box or a solid wood craftsman box. The main difference between these albums and your standard consumer Snapfish and Shutterfly albums is that KISS uses photo printing so your images are actual photographic prints on the pages versus press printing, which is much lower quality.
Beautiful full bleed image spreads! Superb binding and lay flat pages
I compared it to a 10x10" linen cover KISS album that I had created a couple years ago with thin pages so you can see the difference in thickness. Personally I think the thin pages would be my preference, since they are just as sturdy and the images are just as beautiful. The below album is a 10x10 inch linen cover KISS album with a dust cover.
Swatch samples of the various colors and cover types that are available.
