Downtown Chicago Wedding Album Design for Ann & Kam Photography

Album Designs
Ann & Kam are a husband & wife duo based out of Chicago. We have had the pleasure of designing albums for them since 2013! To date we've designed over 70 albums for their clients. Their background in music and architecture truly influences their photography style. They are amazing at capturing grand venues and art in a truly creative and timeless way!  
 
We always take our clients' design preferences into account when designing for them. And Ann & Kam prefer less white space in their designs. We often use their most epic photos as large focal points throughout the design as well. We love the way this glamorous downtown wedding translated onto the pages of an album! 
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads:

Intimate Beach Wedding album design for Pattengale Photography

Album Designs
Katie & Kevin started off, like all 2020 couples did, with a larger wedding in mind. They booked a live band - the whole shabang! They wanted to be mindful of it being cozy, intimate & elegant with their original 125 guest list. Things changed when, in July, they made the decision to cancel their wedding at their gorgeous California venue and opt for the Collins Cottage at Lido House Hotel. They had already booked the cottage for family to stay in for the wedding weekend and after doing a non-negotiable head count they realized that, with Tara and Stephen of Pattengale Photography as their photographers, their guest count came to 13. If California mandated 10 or less it would be impossible for them to celebrate without regrets. So they put their heads together and that's when they realized that because the cottage is a private rental and more like a "home" they could gather all 11 loved ones + their photographers & planner, because it would not be considered an "event."  
 
Thus the most beautiful intimate wedding was born. 
 
The florist transformed the small balcony into a rooftop garden, placing greenery on ledges and all the corners to provide additional privacy as well as beauty. The groom built a table to go on top of the non-movable marble coffee table that had been placed in the gazebo. That way guests could sit comfortably for a full course dinner served on china that was Katie's grandmother's. Every touch was so personal and made their wedding perfect for them, despite the challenges that the pandemic sent their way. 
 
Tara & Stephen captured this wedding day SO beautifully -- it is some of their best work to date!

Delaware Barn Wedding album design for J. Nicole Photography

Album Designs
This album design is a stunner! From the opening full page portrait spread to the sparkler exit at the end, every spread is a page-turner! 
 
J. Nicole is a talented Delaware-based photographer who we have had the pleasure of working with for 4 years now. Jessica shared with us that this couple planned their wedding from out of state during COVID lockdowns and had to reschedule and rely on the groom's mom to do most of the planning. As a result, Jessica met the couple for the first time on their wedding day. But you would never know it from these photos! The couple is so laid back and Jessica clearly was able to put them at ease and capture their wedding day beautifully! 
 
This album design came together so easily. The couple only requested two quick photo swaps and then approved it! After the couple approved their design, they used the remaining revision rounds to further revise the design for parent albums.

Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this gorgeous design:

Santa Barbara Garden Wedding album design for Archer Inspired

Album Designs
Who else has simultaneously PHOTOGRAPHED and BEEN IN a wedding!? Show of hands? 
 
I've done it and it's no easy task. But it does make for a memorable day. 
 
Today's featured album design was done for Hailey Williams of Archer Inspired. She is a Southern California-based wedding photographer who we have had the pleasure of working with for a couple of years now. And this wedding is special because Hailey not only photographed it, but she was a bridesmaid! Scroll down to see her in the sleeved-dress! 
 
This is Hailey's best friend's wedding. She has known the bride since kindergarten so this day was incredibly special to her. She gets extra props for photographing the day in a long dress and with her heart bursting open at each turn. 
 
We love how this album design turned out! Here are a few of our favorite spreads:

Thank you, Hailey, for the honor of designing this incredibly special album!

Tennessee Winter Wedding album design for Alyssa Rachelle

Album Designs
Today's featured album design is for a photographer who is brand new to Align -- this is the VERY FIRST design that we had the pleasure of creating for her! -- and we are enamored with her and her work already! Alyssa Rachelle is based out of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and her eye for composition, her clean editing style, and her knack for capturing her clients at their best, made this album a stand-out to us! 
 
Alyssa was very good about communicating her album design preferences up front, which made it easier for us to nail her initial design on the first try! Alyssa loved the initial design so much that she had a sample album created from it. Then she passed the design on to her client and they used one round of revisions before approving it for themselves! How incredible is that!?  
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this stunning design:
