Photographers today are not often a one-stop shop. A good photographer will focus on what they do best: Take great pictures. In the past a wedding photographer would take the photos, do the editing, print your prints, and create a wedding album design if you chose to pay for one.
Now, things have changed. Photographers generally deliver you a DVD or a memory stick that has all of the photos that they took. Yes, there are usually hundreds of them.
Wedding albums are even more desirable now in the digital world. Can you imagine pulling out your Ipad with a guest at your house to flip through hundreds of photos from your wedding day? Talk about boring!
So, there is a strong argument to have a real wedding album designed. You can leave the album on your coffee table and your house guests will not be able to resist the temptation of flipping through and enjoying your wedding story.
If you want a wedding album you should contact someone who specializes in wedding albums. A photographer may take great photos, but they likely cannot design a wedding album as well as a professional wedding album design company.
A great wedding album company will help you choose the images for your album, or will even choose the best images for you for your approval. And it should not take long! Wedding album designers should be able to complete the first draft of your design within a few days to a week.
There are two main styles of wedding album design: Classic and Modern.
Classic Wedding Album Design – This design style uses black or white backgrounds and are similar to traditional wedding albums. Fading and effects are kept to a minimum with this type of wedding album design
Modern Wedding Album Design – The Modern Album Design style uses fading and transitions in order to guide the viewer through the story of the day. Rather than solid backgrounds, many of the pages are designed with image backdrops.
So, first find a great photographer. Then find a great wedding album company to design and make your perfect wedding album.
Set your wedding album out on your coffee table. Your friends will love it! You will love it! The magic of your wedding day will be relived over and over again.
