We’ve been photographing weddings for more than 15 years. All our studio photographers come to each and every wedding with list of the must-have shots that will go in your wedding album.
But when we photograph a wedding for about 12 hours we bring back hundreds and hundreds of beautiful images there’s still so much work to be done: narrowing down images to create the perfect wedding album.
There are a lot of documentary-style images captured and there are also many many posed, directed portraits that every couple should do throughout a wedding day.
There’s an art to selecting photos and assembling the perfect wedding album.
That’s why we pre-design an unforgettable wedding album for you including everything from getting ready part to the wedding cake cutting.
Every wedding day coverage traditionally starts from photographer capturing what’s in my opinion is the most emotional and intimate part of the wedding day – bride and groom’s getting ready before the ceremony.
The nicest getting ready wedding pictures don’t just create themselves!
A lot of planning goes into every single detail, including those adorable hangers, and the actual space itself.
If you have ideas for specific getting ready shots you’re absolutely welcome to let your photographer know in advance.
You definitely want to include a perfect photo of your gorgeous wedding gown. Make sure you have cute wedding dress hanger that will hold your dress nicely until ready to be worn.
We make sure our bride gets list of things to prepare for details shots that will be included in beginning spreads of the bridal album.
The most photographed part of your day will be the ceremony. Emotions running high, and all this nervous energy creates amazing photographs.
This is the part to start getting picky.
Sometimes there are precious images bringing tears of joy. Sometimes certain expressions are captured so beautifully that you have to have those photos in your album.
All of those shot will be selected and placed in your album, making the impeccable moment freeze.
Less is more.
Less is more. Don’t turn your album into a collage of images. Too many snapshots fighting for your attention all at the same time means none get the attention they deserve. The message that your wedding images tell gets lost.
The key to a magical wedding album is making sure you include all the most important moments.
Pages or Spreads?
What is an album page or a spread? Seems like a simple question, doesn’t it? The basic form of the traditional album comes from binding pages together inside a cover.
What this means, if you think about it, is that all the pages are connected to each other within a printed book. When you open the book, what you see is two pages side by side, or what we call a spread.
The page spread has historically been the basis of book design, since you never see just one page all by itself.
When we design albums, we use two images as design elements and many of these elements are based on the two-page spread. All of these possibilities use the symmetry of the spread as the basis of their design.
We’ve taken the guesswork out of creating great looking album by pre-designing it for you and bundled together.
Printed wedding album never become obsolete, technology does. Don’t let your wedding photos grow up on hard drives.
So this is how we put together your dream wedding album.
