The Album Design Timeline
I wanted to share a little more with you about the process of making an album so you know what to expect!
Most packages come with the option of an 8×10 (horizontal or vertical) or 10×10 album. The album comes with 20 spreads, / 40 pages. You can upgrade to a larger size or more pages if you would like.
Where to Start:
Album design is the narrative of your wedding day. I aim for an emotional ebb and flow, and design with that sort of storytelling in mind. I like to design with powerful images that make you feel something. This should be your guiding principle when you select images.
Choose the images you want in your book by going into your wedding gallery, and clicking the star on your favorites. That will create a favorites gallery – see image below. Typically a design has 5-10 images for each part of the day, with a lot more for the reception. Details should be included as their own “part of the day” as they tell the story and set the scene. I you’re having trouble or would prefer I design your album with just a few of your favorites, let me know. I typically fill in the layout and narrative with new images if needed, and select when a series of images is in black and white or color. Click here to learn more about image selection.
Step 4: Share the Selections With Me When You Are Done
Once you’re done making your selections, share the images with me so I know you are finished. You can request photo edits, but some more complex, or lengthy edits require additional charges. Please include the image name and description of the change (ie crop lady in red dress) in the notes when you send over the selections gallery.
Step 5: Album design process begins.
