Colorful California Wedding Album Design for Danielle Bacon

Album Designs
Color, sunshine, and international touches! Today's featured album is from the amazing Danielle Bacon Photography, who really captured the joy and emotion in this vibrant wedding at the Portofino Hotel & Marina. We especially love the meaningful references to the Netherlands and the vivid coral & blue color palette.  
 
On Danielle's website, her About Page lists a few things she believes. One of these says, "Your photos deserve to be printed! They belong in a stunning heirloom album and all over your walls." We agree wholeheartedly! 
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this cheerful and oh so pretty album design:

Align Legacy Book -- Photography by Paige Vaughn

Album Designs, Align Legacy Books

We're so excited to share a new Align Legacy Book today!! 
 
This Align Legacy Book features a Texas ranch wedding photographed by the talented Paige Vaughn. Paige is an Austin-based photographer with a candid photography style and a cheerful, heartfelt attitude. We always love working with her and her gorgeous images! 
 
Paige shared some insight into how she keeps her album process streamlined: 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
"I find it helpful to cull, edit and produce the full gallery for a client, then go through the gallery and flag "selects" to be used on the blog and their initial album design. That way I don't have to go through the gallery over and over again (which can be inefficient). I also pre-design albums for my clients, instead of waiting for them to choose their favorites -- we all know it can take clients weeks or months to choose images! Pre-designing reduces the time between designing and printing, which frees up my time to do other things! 
 
Album design can be a very time consuming process. While I love everything in my business to have a personal touch, it's SO nice to just choose the photos to be included, and then let the experts at Align create a design that tells the story best. I used to find myself getting so caught up in the details! It's so helpful to have someone removed from the wedding create an album design that's concise, beautiful and a true keepsake. I do handle the communication between my clients and Align, but it's nice to know if I ever wanted my Align designer to handle the back and forth, they could do that, too."
 
      --Paige Vaughn

We're so grateful that Paige sent us the following photographs of her finished 10x10 Align Legacy Book! This album has a Metropolitan colored linen cover with a cameo photo. The interior contains 16 spreads of our thin-page paper.  
 
Check it out below!

Whimsical Portland Wedding Album Design for Jane & Co. Photography

Album Designs
The wedding in today's featured album is SO. MUCH. FUN. And we think the album design does it justice! Monica with Jane & Co. Photography did a stunning job of capturing this wedding, which was packed with delightful details! Monica told us, "I felt like Anri & Chris included every single Portland staple in their wedding day! Your Perfect Bridesmaid in Portland, Oregon ran the whole day, and there wasn't a dull moment. They had the Portland Llamas, he played the ukulele during the ceremony, they had a doughnut wall with Blue Star Donuts, Salt & Straw ice cream ... It was by far the most entertaining wedding I've ever shot!" 
 
Not only was it a fun wedding day, but it was a beautiful one, too! The album really shows off the way Portland based film + digital hybrid photographer Monica Martinez of Jane & Co. Photography captured the emotions and details of the day. We love how it turned out! Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this album:

Chic Maryland Wedding Album Design for Rebekah J. Murray

Album Designs
We have such an elegant album design to share with you today! This wedding at the historic Antrim 1844 was perfectly captured by Rebekah J. Murray Photography. Rebekah is a wedding and editorial photographer based in the Virginia/DC area, with a romantic style that really allows the couples' love stories to shine!  
 
Rebekah prefers designs with plenty of negative space, which draws attention to the images themselves, so we use a hybrid of our Classic and Simple design styles for her. We love the way her beautiful images are showcased in our album designs! Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this album:

Fairytale DC Wedding Album Design for Katelyn James Photography

Album Designs
Here at Align, we save all of our clients' design preferences on file so that their needs are met no matter which designer they work with. But if you happen to fall in love with one of us (which happens all the time!) we are happy to pair you up with that preferred designer whenever their availability permits! For example, Virginia-based photographer and educator Katelyn James loves working with Kari as her album designer. After dozens of designs together, Kari has Katelyn's style down pat!  
 
Today's featured album design is a perfect example of Katelyn's album design preferences: classic and airy, with lots of white space on the page but thin spacing between images. It is full of beautiful photos of a fairytale-perfect wedding in the historic Mayflower in the heart of DC.  
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads:
