Wedding photographers know that every detail counts, particularly when producing wedding albums to please clients with varying tastes. Finao, maker of high-end wedding albums, knows this too. It’s why the company created the ONE series, a leading line of premium quality, edge-to-edge, flush-mounted albums that give photographers limitless options and tools to create unique and timeless collections of images for wedding clients.
Consider the paper, for instance. The original ONE features silver halide printing in luster, matte or metallic, which is a paper stock that produces vibrant color and dramatic black-and-white photographs that will last a lifetime. In fact, silver halide paper is rated to be archival for more than 100 years. It provides a visual keepsake that’s both stunning and stable. There are also options for a fine-art version, Finao’s artONE, that features Hahnemϋhle German etching paper, and a revolutionary matted hybrid version called the nextONE.
Premium paper is just part of the package. Photographers have access to hundreds of cover materials, designs and color combinations which can be personalized to reference the couple’s wedding day. Nearly 150 options are standard inclusions with the ONE series. If it’s a winter wedding, leathers from the Accents collection offer monochromatic textures that echo the look of falling snow. For an autumn gathering, get an earth-toned foliage look with one of the many patterned leathers or fabrics, of which many are custom-created for Finao. And for a summer beach wedding, a wide array of light and airy linens and silks make for a breathtaking display.
More than ever before, wedding couples see examples of different types of photography and design via the Internet. With the rise of Pinterest, many clients are able to take cues from designers and stylists to visualize their own weddings from start to finish. Finao offers the widest range of unique cover options to meet the demands of the more design-savvy client, from a basic single material to a tooTone or 3Tone cover design that allows for the mix and match of any materials. For an especially bold statement, specialty covers such as Armour or Erotika metal image covers or limited edition cover designs are the way to go.
ONE album, Many Package Options
The Finao ONE is available in almost any size and aspect ratio, from as small as 3×3 inches up to 12×18 and the impressive 20×8 flipbook. There are also two page-thickness options: albums with thick pages range in capacity from 20 to 64 page-sides, and albums with slimmer pages (medium thickness) range from 20 up to 100 page-sides. And for clients who want multiple books for family, but maybe a more economical solution than duplicate flush-mounts, Finao’s playBOOK photo books are a great alternative. They feature a skinny page design and true photographic prints just like the higher-end ONE albums, all within a similar price point to the lower-quality press books in the marketplace. Additional options for the ONE including custom liners, spine options, printing choices, packaging options and more can be found under the “Other Stuff” heading on the Finao ONE product information page.

Of particular ire is the decision to phase out an SD card slot. Speaking to the Independent, Apple’s senior VP Phil Schiller laid out the company’s rationale for why the slot had... More ›
