wedding photo album
It’s been days after your wedding thrills, tears and emotions. Your wedding photo shoot is also past you. However, this beautiful time can be extended!
How? By making the most magical wedding photo album that will enable you to relive all these memories, anytime you decide to open it.
You were surely given your wedding pictures by now, yet still didn’t have a chance to put them in your wedding photo album. Don’t worry, if you are overwhelmed with their number or simply don’t know where to begin, we will help you do it like a pro.
- Sort, sort, sort
Many of your pictures will be amazing, yet not so fitting for the wedding photo album.
Because you don’t want to overload it with all the pictures that had been taken during the ceremony. Divide the pictures into 3 piles: pictures for your eyes only, album-appropriate, and others. The last pile usually consists of pictures that are similar to those which would end up in the album, yet no as good as the chosen ones.
Ideally, you want your wedding photo album to be lucid and well-thought-out.
- Let the pictures tell the story
The way you will organise your wedding pictures in the photo album is up to you. Yet, we recommend you to let them tell the story of your magical wedding day, put them in order of the events with the occasional interlude of more artistic wedding photos.
This way you will be able to relive the day and all the emotions that took place during.
TIP: To make your wedding photo album experience more vibrant, develop your pictures in a variety of sizes – let your eyes do the dance, waltzing from picture to picture.
- Choose candid shots first
Even though posed pictures enable you to control the situation, candid pictures have this sparkling freshness that can’t be faked. They depict the true you, with real smiles and tears.
What’s more, they also enable you to notice your relatives and friends’ reactions and emotions in the shots. Sometimes, details captured in unposed pictures serve as an amazing memory for you to cherish forever.
- Choose posed and details pictures last
Posed wedding pictures are usually the easiest to choose and this is the reason why focusing on them last, will serve as a breather. Additionally, some of those pictures can be sent out as an incredible ‘thank you’ note to your guests.
TIP: Interchanging your ‘story’ pictures with the posed ones as well as the photos of details, like flowers or decorative elements, is a good idea since this move provides versatility and dynamics.
- Minimum descriptions
Letting your wedding pictures tell the story is our favourite way to go. However, if you wish to attach descriptions under pictures, go for minimalism. Sometimes, one sentence or inside jokes, say more than an entire column of words.
After all, in them your wedding photographer had preserved the magic of your big day.
Making your own wedding photo album can be a long, time-consuming activity. Nevertheless, the outcome will compensate these toils, since you are to have a beautiful memento of the beginning of your journey together, as husband and wife.
