North Idaho Senior Portrait Album Design for Looyenga Photography

Album Designs
About 95% of the albums we design here at Align are wedding albums. But occasionally we get to design engagement shoot albums, family portrait albums, boudoir albums, bar or bat mitzvah albums and today we want to share with you a favorite senior portrait album that we recently designed for Idaho based photographer Looyenga Photography!  
 
We have had the pleasure of working on over 150 album designs with Brent over the last 8 years. He is a fabulous human to work with and also takes stunning photos that really show off the location every time. Brent shared this with us about Shelby's shoot and the subsequent album process: 
 
Shelby contacted me because she was coming into my area and wanted her senior photos in a place that was wildly different from where she lived. After talking through locations, we ended up settling on a small state park that has an incredible dock, mountains, forest and fall colors. We ended up with a beautiful day, and while it was freezing (mid 20's, if I remember correctly) Shelby was a champ. It went smoothly, was a lot of fun, and ended up turning out really well. I had a blast with her, and I was very excited to see how the album came together. Align took some of my favorites, but also used a lot of the photos that I hadn't set aside (because I asked them to) to fill in the holes I wouldn't know were there. The album features such a great flow, and Shelby told me that she absolutely loves it! 
 
This was such a fun one to work on! Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this exceptional design. Notice what a great job Brent did taking a variety of images and poses in each location, allowing each spread to be cohesive yet super-interesting:

Dream Garden Engagement Album Design for Christina Joy Photography

Album Designs
Get ready for one of the most stunning engagement album designs you have ever seen! Virginia and destination wedding photographer Christina Joy provided us with extraordinary images taken in the most dreamy garden location which she utilized so well.  
 
For this engagement album design we employed our SIMPLE design style which has all white backgrounds, no borders or overlapping images and 1-4 images per spread. Christina's preferred design style that she has communicated with us also includes extra thin spacing, mostly filmstrip layouts where there is white space above and below the images (sometimes on all 4 sides), with a "light and airy feel." 
 
Christina's preferred designer, Kari, knows her style well and delivered a beautiful initial design. After only one round of revisions, the design was approved and delivered just 10 days after the order was placed! 
 
Check out some of our favorite spreads from this lovely design:

Chesapeake Bay Summer Wedding Album Design for Meghan Elizabeth Photography

Album Designs, Align Legacy Books

Wow wow wow!! Pennsylvania based wedding photographer Meghan Elizabeth captured this seaside wedding in the most gorgeous way! She is truly so talented and we feel so honored to have worked with her on close to a dozen albums in the past year and half. 
 
This album ended up on the large side with 30 spreads. The bride originally wanted a lot of images in her album (as most brides do!) but after seeing some of the busy spreads, she decided to pair down the photos to allow for a less cluttered design. We see this happen again and again and it just goes to show that carefully curating the images to the very best ones from the day will allow those images to shine and tell the story in a more impactful way. 
 
Meghan trusted us throughout the process to communicate directly with her client (using our Hands-off Service) and to facilitate the Cover Finalization process as well. And finally, we also printed it! Meghan ordered a 10x10 Align Legacy Book with a Pebble linen cover and silver foil debossing.  
 
She had this to share: "I could not do this without the Hands-off Service and time save that having Shannon (her preferred designer) provides. It's awesome to know that someone who designs albums professionally and has that eye for design, and knows the albums well is taking things over so that I don't have to stress about it. For example, Shannon shared the advice that a certain color foil doesn't look good on a certain color linen. Which not only provides my clients with a quality product but helps me provide them with a quality service. She's fast and on top of it. If I was designing the albums myself and having to make all the changes, it would take me weeks to get it done in between everything else I have to do to run my full time photography business." 
 
Such kind words! Thank you Meghan!  
 
Here are a few photos of the printed album that Meghan graciously shared with us as well as a few of our favorite spreads from this stunning design:

Whimsical Summer Wedding Album Design for Jean Smith

Album Designs
YOU GUYS. This wedding dress + this photographer + this location. It's too perfect. Prepare yourself for something special. 
 
Michigan based wedding photographer Jean Smith is a long-time favorite of ours. After all we have been working with her for over 11 years and have designed 167 albums and counting for her. We're obsessed with her photography and authentic documentary style. She is one of our beloved Client Advocates and shares here about two mistakes she regrets making when she started her business.  
 
This particular design came together so well in part because of the curated set of images that Jean sent our way. She asked for a design with exactly 20 spreads and that's what we delivered. And her client approved the design in less than 2 weeks! We love when we can help photographers streamline their album process like that! 
 
It's nearly impossible to narrow down the spreads from this design to just a few favorites, but check these out (and they will make you want to click through the full slideshow below!):

Elegant Outdoor New Jersey Wedding Album Design for Lauren Kearns Photography

Album Designs
The colors and textures in this design we put together for New Jersey based wedding photographer Lauren Kearns really drew us in. It is SO SO lovely in every way. Lauren also made use of the venue -- Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, New Jersey -- for the portraits expertly. Take a look at the variety of locations she captured as well as how cohesive each spread ended up being! (Props to Lauren for taking a great variety of images in each location!) 
 
Lauren used our Hands-off Service to avoid being the middle-man during the revision rounds. We communicated directly with her client and the design was approved and delivered only 8 days after she placed the order with us!  
 
This one was such a pleasure to work on! Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this stunning design:
