Tips For Designing The Perfect Wedding Album
Posted on June 21, 2016 by Phillis Brooks
A wedding album is similar to a wedding dress, it should be looked at and enjoyed time and time again. There is an art to designing the perfect wedding album. Here are our tips for putting together your perfect album.
– Pick Your Most Favorite
Your album should document your emotions of your wedding day so pick the photos you can’t live without. The best albums are collections of favorite pictures, not the pictures you feel need to go in.
– Let The Photos Tell Your Story
Let the photograph stand on its own, only placing one or two pictures per spread. Have vertical images on one page with a few horizontal images across both pages.
– Design Chronologically
For example, ceremony photos should go before reception shots. But this is not a hard and fast rule. If your favorite shot is your first dance when go with it.
– Design One Spread At A Time
There is a certain rhythm to an album and natural flow to the images. An album is a combination of spreads, these pages should be designed to work together as a whole and not separate pages.
– Think Color
The great thing is…there are no rules! If your wedding was colorful your album will tent to follow suit. If it was leaned towards the muted side black and white images are always classic. Mix and matching is always added a bit of excitement too.
– Feature Key Moments
Moments like when the bride walking down the aisle or the first kiss as man and wife. Be sure to include these shots in your favorites selection.
