4WaysToStreamline_Header

After the wedding day is over, the bride and groom anxiously await their images from the big day. While providing the bride and groom with the images in an online gallery or DVD is a great way for them to see all of their images, many couples love to have a physical book of their favorite moments of the day.

Creating a wedding album for them to display and share with their friends and family is a great way for them to remember the wedding day! This is also an opportunity for you to further show off your signature style. So how do you design an album that your clients will love and want to share with their friends and family? We’ve put together the top 4 album design tips that will keep your albums timeless and streamline your album design.

1. Create a strong story

A successful album will tell a story of the wedding day, from the bride and groom getting ready to the farewells as the couple heads to their honeymoon. Perhaps there was a funny moment that happened during the day that’s just too good to leave out, or you shot little moments throughout the day that harnessed a lot of emotion – those are the moments you want to include in the album for your clients to enjoy! When it comes to placing the photos in an album, consider placing them chronologically to keep the timeline of the day moving forward throughout the book. Highlight certain images that are especially significant to the story by dedicating an entire page to one image. [···]
