I’ve spoken often about how important it is to me that clients receive at least one tangible good after the delivery of their online gallery. Living in a digital world, it’s easy to leave things online and never get around to printing photos or assembling that album that’s been lingering on your to-do list forever and a day. So knowing that I would be in charge of creating these for my clients put me at ease that they would have at least one item within the first few weeks of marriage. In 2019, I had a record number of clients who received an heirloom wedding album after updating my Collections to include them in my main options… so many, in fact, that I didn’t photograph a single one because I simply didn’t have time with capturing weddings and creating albums!
But, as we all know, 2020 simply forced us to slow down and I’ve been getting back into the swing of showcasing client albums whenever possible! I think it’s beneficial for my brides and grooms to be able to hop on the blog and see what different choices look like on an actual album rather than just a small swatch.
Emily and Paul selected an oxblood leather cover and I think it’s my first time ever seeing this option in person — it’s absolutely gorgeous! It’s the perfect blend of burgundy that is neither too red nor too purple. I love how their light and airy monument photos just pop against this rich hue that reminds me of a deep, red wine.
Like so many of my 2020 couples, Emily and Paul eloped with just their closest friends and family. My standard album includes 15 spreads/30 pages, and even with a smaller wedding, we had no trouble filling this from beginning to end. So smaller weddings, these work great for you too!
