There are certain golden moments of every wedding that never fade. That kiss, the moment when he finally puts a ring on your finger, all the blissful family and friend moments, not forgetting how stunning you looked in that gorgeous gown remain embedded in your mind long after the event.
You may not have hired the most expensive videographer; you may even not have had one. Great photography works just fine in reminding us of these precious moments. A wedding photo album comes in handy in putting the beautiful collage together. Here are some of the considerations when putting one together.
Choose a Timeless Design
You want the memorable moments of your wedding embedded in a place that will last for a lifetime. This is one place that you can go to when you need to revitalize your marriage and even get inspiration to continue as a couple.
While there are different designs of wedding photo albums available in the market, there is need to get one that completely expresses your feelings as a couple. Getting a customized album gives it more meaning. All in all, the album you get should be able to stand the test of time – a simple and clean design will do it for you.
Tell a story
An important thing to put in mind is that a wedding album holds the story of your entire wedding day. It is therefore important to get the photos that depict action and emotion and arrange them chronologically so as to tell a story. Remember, not everyone who’ll see this album was at the actual wedding. A sequential arrangement gives them a better chance at interpretation of the pictures.
Don’t Clutter the Album
Putting layers of photos on the album creates a confusing effect. One gets lost in the moment trying to make sense of all the pictures that are fighting for attention. You want everyone that sees the album to feel like they are part of this very important memory. Let every photo speak for itself. Let it express that moment in ways that words cannot.
Don’t be afraid of White Spaces
Sometimes leaving that white space is a good thing. It not only gives one a calming effect, but it also focuses the eye on the photo, allowing one to fully take in the moment. While creating a wedding photo album may seem like a daunting task, it is worth every moment.
