Oaxaca Mexico Album Design by Douglas Favero Photography

Album Designs
Today's featured album design is a jaw-dropper! We worked with Douglas Favero Photography to create this stunning design that shows off his client's engagement session and destination wedding in the Historic Downtown of Oaxaca, Mexico. Douglas has been an Align client for a couple of years now and we love that he says he can count on his preferred designer Sarah to always wow his clients! 
 
Here are some of our favorites spreads, plus some photographs Douglas took of the printed Black River Imaging Black Faux Leather Photo Book with Lay-Flat classic Matte pages.

Douglas shared with us that the engagement session, the getting ready and the first encounter were at the Hotel Quinta Real, an ex-convent, one of the first structures built in the city in the 16th century, featuring textured ways with thick archways, terraces, and beautiful ambient light through all of it.


Douglas also mentioned that the ceremony took place at the beautiful Santo Domingo Church that features gold-plated saints and angels.

What a stunner! And now here's the full design...

New York City Engagement Album Design by Jean Smith Photography

Album Designs
Is it weird that I personally feel more chic after flipping through this album design? I want to jaunt down the New York City streets with the confidence that these two have while Jean Smith works her photography magic.  
 
Jean Smith is a fantastic lifestyle and wedding photographer based out of Michigan, but she loves traveling to other locations! About the photo shoot featured in this engagement album, Jean says "Working with these two in the Big Apple was an absolute dream. We explored Highline, cobblestone streets, Battery Park, and the Financial District that holds the new Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial." 
 
Jean is also amazing because she took photos of this White House Custom Colour album to show us the final product! We'll sprinkle photos of this 12x12 WHCC press-printed book in with some of our favorite layouts below. Enjoy the gorgeousness!

Rustic Mill Ruins Wedding by Alicia Lacey

Album Designs
When I began flipping through this album design, I was super impressed by the lovely soft, feminine, cohesive beauty of Alicia Lacey's photography...then BOOM the ceremony takes place in old mill ruins. SO unique and awesome!! I was sold! Looking back, Align designer Sarah teases the mill ruins the very first spread, but I was oblivious until I saw Alicia's epic high angle shot on the ceremony spread. Even if I just ruined the surprise (ha! see what I did there!?), I still highly suggest you flip through this whole stunning album design.  
 
Alicia is based out of Washington, DC. and her ability to capture romance in her photography is spectacular. Not only are we thankful that we got the chance to work with her lovely images, but we are EXTRA thankful that she sent us photos of the final printed album! Check out this beauty from Madera!




And here's your chance to page through the whole album design. Enjoy!

Impeccable Outdoor Wedding By Angela Newton Roy

Album Designs
You've GOT to check out the portraits in this album design! Not only did the Snug Harbor Cultural Center provide SUCH unique greenery and architecture for this beautiful New York City wedding, but Angela Newton Roy simply knocked it out of the park with her photography! Angela writes on her blog, "There were SO many stunning places at Snug Harbor for beautiful portraits, but we could have been anywhere and these two would have made them perfect. You can literally see how much they love each other in each one. From their smiles, to the way they linger in their kisses, to their hugs...their love makes the portraits gorgeous."  
 
Cue the "awwwwws" now! 
 
Angela is a film and digital photographer based out of Washington, DC and NYC whose soft and romantic images make us swoon! After the design process was complete, Angela shared the following thoughts, "It was so much fun to relive Amanda and Matt's gorgeous wedding day during the design of their album. Working with Align helped me deliver a perfect album to the couple. By starting with a few of their favorite images, including family formals they wanted included in their design, I was able to select the rest that would tell a good story, then hand them over to the designer Sarah at Align. It was so easy to communicate to her the overall feel and aesthetic I wanted for the album, and I could tell right away that she 'got it'. She kept it clean and classic, and nailed it with her design choices. The couple only had to make one or two swaps, and that was so easy to do with Align managing it for me! The process from start to finish was so smooth, and kept my workflow moving right along. I'm so thankful they created such a stunning album for Amanda and Matt. I know they love it and will cherish it for years to come!" 
 
More "awwwws" are happening now! Thanks for letting us work with your beautiful images, Angela!
