Cypress Albums Handmade Folios

One of my favorite album companies is Cypress Albums because of their beautiful products all handmade with the finest craftsmanship.  The look of their albums and presentation boxes gives off this natural and vintage feel yet unique and sophisticated at the same time.  A few months ago I ordered their folios, which folds into a small book and can be displayed open like a frame to show off wedding, engagement, and family pictures.  I especially like the ribbon in the front that adds a bit of elegance to the folio.  Cypress offers different colors for the cover and ribbon so that you can customize any color combination to your preference.

Hardcover Photo Guestbook Album with Engagement Pictures

An engagement session is a wonderful time to get dressed up and have some photos taken at different locations that are meaningful to the two of you.  Afterwards, you can share the photos with friends and family in your save-the-date cards, on Facebook, and at the reception.  Another option is to showcase some of them in a guestbook album for your guests to sign at the wedding.

We did Kim and Brian's engagement session back in October in San Francisco, and in less than a week they'll be getting married.  I wanted to try a new company for guestbooks and created this one with a photo hardcover, and I love how it has lay flat pages that are thicker than normal paper so that the pages will last for a lifetime.

New 2014 Lexus IS 350 F Sport

Once in a while it's nice to take photos of something that you don't normally shoot.  I was called upon to get some shots of a new car, which looked amazing under the late evening sun in an empty parking lot in Fremont.  This 2014 Lexus IS 350 is a complete redesign from the previous generation and comes with an F Sport package so the front looks more aggressive than the regular model.  After spending some time with this car I would like to get my hands on one too.
