I mentioned in this post that albums are my thing and some of reasons I always suggest albums to my clients. Today I wanted to share another recent album design and a little about how the process works.
Imagine this, you’re patiently waiting to see your full gallery of your wedding pictures. Then when you receive it, there’s literally hundreds of images to go through. I do set up a highlights category with some of my favorites from the day, but there are sometimes upwards of 500 more images to view. It can seem daunting and overwhelming. That’s why I want to help you out. I want you to have your album in your hands as soon as we can after your wedding. While you’re still excited.
So we try to take some of the pressure off of you. Each album is custom designed based on your wedding. We handle the initial design and choose the images that we think best tells the story of your wedding day. Once the first draft is complete, we send it along for you to approve. Don’t worry, clients always have final say in the design before it goes to print.
Once you receive your design, you can make comments as to any changes you’d like made. This can include swapping out images, adding and deleting pages and moving images around. I want your album to be perfect for you, and that’s why I offer a few rounds of changes. You may see something differently after the first couple of changes are made and we don’t want you to ever think that you’re “stuck” with it if you aren’t completely happy. I mean this is your first family heirloom and I want you to smile, and remember every time you view it.
Once everything looks perfect to you, you’ll approve the design and then we’ll take it from there. Simple as that. No spending hours choosing images and no design experience is necessary. Because we’ve simplified this process for you, many of my clients have their albums in their hands 2-3 months after their wedding!
Sarah and Jarrett were married in June and recently approved their design and I’m so excited to share it! Make sure to click the full screen button on the control bar to really see the beauty in their album! Are you dying to see what their full gallery looks like? Click here.
If you’re a photographer reading this I highly recommend you check out Align Album Design to help you with this process. While I absolutely love designing albums, I tend to be very picky and designs can take me days to complete. Last year I started outsourcing my designs to Align and I couldn’t be happier. They design the albums in the exact same manor that I would and the turn around time is super fast! So instead of spending days in front of my computer I’m able to better spend my time communicating with clients and imagine this… shooting more!
