This week's blog is all about album design. I wanted to show you a complete album because when you book your photographer, and have an album package, you not only have to consider the style of the photographs, but the album design as well. It's no good having the most wonderfully shot photos if they are then presented in a haphazard way.
If you click on the images you should be able to see them larger.
On the first page I always have a title page with names, date, venues. I think it starts the album off beautifully.
Although there are a lot of photos in the albums, I try to lay them out simply so that you can see each one and each page tells the story.
For the backgrounds I stick to white, black or a photo but sometimes I'll use a colour from the wedding's colour theme like the blue below.
I do like to try to copy and use a motif from the day to use in borders, such as part of the illustration from the invitation used on the page above.
Groups are usually larger photos so you can see everyone.
Background photos are details from the day which I incorporate into the design.
Once I've designed your layout, I email it to you for approval. When you're happy, the album gets ordered.
