eco-friendly wedding planning

Planning a Sustainable Wedding in NY?

When planning an eco-friendly or low-impact wedding, you might not think about your photographer, but there are actually a ton of things your wedding photographer can do to be Earth friendly.

One easy item is with your heirloom wedding album. McKay’s Photography has been a certified Green Photographer since 2010 and runs an entirely sustainable photography business, with the album being just one part.

About Artisan Craftsman Books

Normally I don’t share my vendors with my clients, however I love shouting this company from the rooftops…

Recently, I sat down on a Facebook Live-stream to interview my favorite wedding album manufacturer, Lawrence Crandall, to discuss his eco-friendly wedding albums and books!

His books are hands down my top selling wedding album and nothing else on the market compares.

Wedding couples immediately see the difference in the look and feel of these custom fine-art wedding books, but knowing that they are also 100% eco-friendly is an added bonus.

Larry and I met in person years ago at the WPPI photography convention when I was the Education Chairperson for Greener Photography and we have kept in touch over the years.

I adore his fine-art wedding albums, the customer service, and his attention to detail.

The books we create together are completely unique, especially to Rochester weddings, and I love that they are eco-friendly through and through.

This interview was previously recorded as a Facebook Live.

Artisan Craftsman Books are easily my top seller with my clients because they are unique, handmade, eco-friendly books, made in the USA and the most archival book on the market for fine-art and wedding photographers.

In the video, we talk about what makes his books eco-friendly, what to look for when choosing a wedding album, the crazy random way we met in person and why these books sell themselves.

As a wedding photographer, I find no other book available that represents my work correctly, artistically and so beautifully.

McKay's Photography = Sustainable Wedding Albums

My partnership with Lawrence and Artisan Craftsman Books have also changed the way I photograph weddings and design the wedding album. These eco-friendly wedding albums can be designed to utilize the entire page spread, with no lost images in the ‘gutter’.

That’s one of my favorite things about these albums. They lay-flat and take up the entire spread to tell the best possible wedding story.

Check out some of the many book and case combinations that my couples have done over the years… including a 2-volume set for this wedding and honeymoon combo!
