Now that we have digitally captured your Special Day, one of the considerations to make is how you would like your images preserved for the years ahead and how to be able to share your storyboard with others. One of the most convenient methods to share your Special Day is through a quality, custom designed, Photo Album.
These Albums can truly be works of art and easily become a focal point in any room or your home, When we design your Album, some considerations include:
Whether it is an 10x10 or 12x12., the physical size of your Album is a matter of personal taste. Our Albums come in a variety of sizes, including orientations in landscape mode, portrait mode, and square. As photographs are taken in either landscape or portrait modes, the square layout fits either orientation equally well. As such we recommend using a square format for your Album.
Number of Pages
The number of pages selected can greatly affect the flow of your storyboard. And, you don't want too few or too many. We design each layout with your approval as we show how your day progressed from beginning to end by incorporating a combination of both traditional and documentary-style photography. As contracted, we cover the Pre-Ceremony activities of getting ready, the Ceremony, posed photographs after the Ceremony, and the fun times at the Reception. As such, we have found Albums of 40-50 pages works well and can accommodate 50-70 of your favorite photographs. - depending to layout.
It is never a good idea to cram too many photographs into a single page. Your quality Album will now become more of a scrap book. In terms of displaying artwork, less is more. One of our techniques is to photograph select scenes with the intent to format the final image into a 2:1 ratio to provide a panoramic effect. This works perfectly for the square album design and allows us to print a single image across two pages, (called a spread). On a 12x12 Album that means you will have a 12"x24" spread! These large landscape images, when mixed into your storyboard, can look truly amazing!
Albums are meant to last a lifetime. And, quality Albums can be a big investment. As such, we offer two styles of Albums at differing price points - our Signature Album and our Premium Album. The features of each are compared below and will be covered in detail at your Consultation where you will be presented with samples of each type.
