Selecting you album images - 3 tips

Category: Albums | Wedding

Even though not every couple decides to get one I think every wedding deserves an album. Just like with every childhood album you might not look at it every day but opening up your book every now and then really is fun to look back and see the images. It just is different to see it in book than on your laptop.

But how do you select the images for your wedding album in today's blog three tips.

1. Tell the story

When you receive a couple of hundred images how do you select the images for the album? I am a big believer in having my couples select the images and add images that I think should be included but the images that mean the most to the couple should be featured in their album. Moments that my couples find important might be different than what I would select. Look for images that tell your story and take moments from every part of the day. Try to limit selecting images that look similar. Choose the one that speaks to you the most. As a photographer I try to do this already when selecting the images but when reducing images that go in the album look this applies even more.

2. Look for details

Combine images of people with images of detail. Images we capture always include a lot of details and when creating an album this adds to the variety of the album. Especially if you have invested a lot of time and resources on details make sure they are featured.

3. Less is more

In a thirty page album I advise my couples to select about forty to fifty images. In my experience albums become more beautiful to watch and enjoy if they are not overcrowded. So even if you would like to put every image in your album be selective and choose the ones you love the most.

Album Design Kislay and Sonal

I just finished designing the wedding album for Kislay and Sonals wedding that we shot in the Olympic Stadium. Their wedding was so special and I think this album conveys their story. They included images of their engagement session as well which made me very happy. Indeed I have the couple select their favorite images. If I feel images are missing that are part of the story I select them as well and verify with my couple if they love the addition.

As I use an online gallery it so easy to share the result of the album and have my couples see the result.

Fine Art Album

I have received one beautiful Fine Art Album to complement the range of wedding albums that we offer. This is a so called Fine Art Album is a flush mount album and it is printed on fine art paper. The sharpness of the images and the color is amazing.

This album has multiple cover options like leather, linen or photo. Further it is flat lay and can be mounted with page separators, which I really like on this album. The spine or the cover can be embossed and what is even better the album starts with 30 pages so a lot of images can be put in the album.

Beautiful album

The wedding of Judith and Wim is a favorite and I was so happy when they came back to me after the wedding and asked me if I could design a wedding album for them. Jippee because it is always a pleasure to create an album from a wedding.

This past week the album arrived and I was so happy that the album turned out just as they envisioned it.

It always nice when couples decide they want to include their engagement images in their wedding. A great way to do so is the reception album. A special album that will hold all the best wishes of family and friends to cherish a lifetime. When Dieuwke and Johan told me they opted to have one I was really happy because I knew their images would look perfect in a reception album.
