Stunning Virginia Winery Wedding Album Design by Katelyn James Photography

Album Designs
Here at Align, we're big advocates of communicating your personal design preferences to your designer. While we have 3 base design styles you can choose from on your album design order form, we're happy to customize to your tastes! But here's a tip -- your preferences don't need to be brand new ideas you come up with from scratch! Feel free to pull inspiration from other designs you've seen in the Featured Album Designs category of this blog, from Pinterest or Google searches, or from photographers you admire! We frequently have photographers tell us they want a "Katelyn James Style" album design! They've seen Katelyn's albums at one of her workshops or on her website and they know that's the elegant style they want to present to their own clients! 
 
Today we're excited to feature this gorgeous winery wedding's album design we created for Katelyn James, a talented wedding photographer and educator based in Virginia. It's a great example of her preferred style that falls partway in between our Simple and our Classic base styles (generally 4 or less images per spread except for the ceremony and reception). She gravitates towards filmstrip-like layouts that are more horizontal in nature, so you'll notice that we rarely have images bleed off the tops/bottoms of the pages. We use extra thin spacing between images and ample white space on the spreads in order to give the design a light and airy feel. 
 
If you want to check out more of Katelyn's album designs, check out her profile in our Client Advocate section! But first, enjoy some of our favorite spreads from this lovely design!




Here's the full album design! Go ahead and flip through using the slideshow below!

Rustic Ohio Wedding by Katelyn James Photography

Album Designs
A little bit of rustic outdoorsy-ness + a smidgen of flower child + a heap of beautiful + a bucketload of genuine emotion = the multifaceted appeal of this wedding photographed by Katelyn James. Oh how much we love this album design!! 
 
Katelyn is a Virigina-based photographer who continually knocks it out of the park. We've designed so many albums for Katelyn throughout the years (check out these beauties: Pretty Pastel Wedding, Beautiful Virginia Wedding, Charming Plantation Wedding), yet every time she places a new order we're still giddy to see her gorgeous images!  
 
Here are some of our favorite spreads from this rustic Ohio wedding. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to view the full design!

Katelyn James on getting your life back by outsourcing

Featured Clients

One of our incredibly talented clients, Katelyn James, just wrote an awesome blog post about why she chooses to outsource her album designs. Here's an excerpt: 
 
How many of you out there have had "Make album changes to "So & So's Album" on your to-do list for weeks... maybe even months?! How many of you have shot weddings two months ago and haven't even started to think about designing the album?! How many of you feel like you would be CAUGHT UP in your business if it wasn't for the whole ALBUM aspect of your workflow? If you can relate to any of these questions, it's time to outsource. Seriously. Be honest and ask yourself "Are my clients really getting the BEST experience with me handling the album design?".  
 
Click here to check out the whole post on how outsourcing and letting go has been key to her business growth. BONUS: she's facilitating a giveaway for a free album design! Be sure to enter soon for your chance to win $150 in Align credit. 
 
Katelyn, thanks again for the kind words and for sharing your knowledge with your industry peers! You rock! :)
