In the role you play for the bride and groom’s wedding day, not only are you their photographer, but you are the one who can artistically tell their story. Storytelling is a large part of what makes your images stand out, and what encourages your couple to buy additional products from you. When the bride and groom make the decision to purchase a wedding album from you, it helps increase your profit and gives you the chance to flex your creative muscles.
Although creating albums can be beneficial, they can also consume your time and can cause frustration for you. As a busy photographer, it can be difficult to add more to your plate than there already is. For you to successfully run your business and fulfill your clients’ wishes, you need an album design workflow that allows you to spend minimal time on the process.
In our Lightning Fast Album Design Webinar with Andrew Funderburg, he shared how you can speed up your album design workflow and create a faster turnaround time. Since he provided so many actionable solutions for a fast workflow, we’ve put together the top 5 tips for fast album design.
1. Shoot for the Design
Although you create the album after the wedding day is over, it is important to keep the design in mind as you are shooting. Think of how you can shoot many images that would work together to tell the story of the wedding day. Also, when you see an image you know is going to be a “Wow” image, try as hard as possible to take the best shots.
