Whimsical Farm Wedding Album Design for Ann-Marie VanTassell Photography

Album Designs
Today's featured album design is a fun one! This large outdoor wedding set in a scenic spot with a red barn in the background looks like it was such a special event! Washington DC based wedding photographer Ann-Marie VanTassell captured SO many emotional moments and gorgeous portraits throughout this multiple-day event. 
 
When Ann-Marie placed this design order, she mentioned wanting to incorporate some of the images from the couple's rehearsal dinner in the album. There are no hard and fast rules for doing this, but typically as an album design company, we dedicate anywhere from 2-5 spreads in the design to the rehearsal dinner at the beginning of the album and then transition into the wedding day after that. This particular design ended up being 29 spreads total with 4 spreads dedicated to the rehearsal dinner. You can click through the full design at the bottom of this post to see how seamlessly the design transitions between the two events. 
 
We absolutely ADORE how this design came together. Here are a few of our favorite spreads:

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!):

Outdoor Michigan Wedding Album Design for J&N Studios

Album Designs
Whenever we get the chance to design an album for Michigan Luxury & Travel Wedding photographers J&N Studios it is a TREAT! Nathan's imagery is exquisite and beautifully curated. And whereas most of the albums we design are of a square format, Nathan always orders horizontal albums. While less common, horizontal layouts offer a lot of flexibility and lend themselves well to story-telling. 
 
This Ann Arbor, Michigan wedding day looks like it was practically perfect in every way. We made sure to highlight Nathan's best images as focal points throughout the design and we love how it came together! 
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this stunning album design:

Florida Beach Resort Wedding Album Design for Ailyn La Torre Photography

Album Designs
Today's featured album design is a gorgeous one full of blue skies and pops of color. The stunning photography in its pages was done by Florida based wedding photographer Ailyn La Torre Photography who we have had the pleasure of working with for about 2 and a half years now. We've designed over 30 albums for Ailyn in that time and her images are such a treat to work with! 
 
Ailyn uses our Hands-off Service to streamline the album proofing process and we communicate directly with her clients to get their revision requests implemented. Ailyn's design preferences are to not combine color and black and white images on spreads together, but her client in this instance requested that we do so and really seemed to like the resulting juxtaposition. We are a fan of the finished design with its clean minimal spreads that really allow Ailyn's best images to SHINE! 
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this beauty:
