Diana has kicked off the blog writing for us, in between designing some beautiful albums. So here is some info from her on that!
“Designing an album for a special event in someone’s life, like a wedding, is an important part of a photographer’s job. Our job is not done after the day is over and we all go home. After someone ‘s special day, and after the long editing process , we get to have some more fun! The first part of designing an album is to choose the top 100 photos (in the case of a wedding) that we feel represent the major parts of the day. They should represent special moments like the bride & groom getting ready before church, bride arriving at church, the ceremony, family portraits after the ceremony and so on…
Then we review what we know about the couple, from working with them in person as well as from the photos. For example, what are some of their hobbies? What are their favourite colours? Are they part of a team? We do this so we can better personalise their album with something more relevant for them like their favourite colour or poem or song or special moment from the wedding.
While the majority of couples choose a plain black / white background for their wedding album, giving them the option of colours, themes or graphics can really make their album and photos stand out. Every couple should consider this when working with their photographer on their album. While we create this initial version of the album, we work closely with the couple on revising it until they are happy with the final product. This album will exist for generations to come and will tell your story, it should be as personal to you and as beautiful as possible.”
