Downtown Raleigh Wedding Album Design for Dakota Hersey

Album Designs

We have had the pleasure of working with Raleigh, North Carolina based wedding photographer Dakota Hersey for 2 years now. Her work is impeccable and she is a kind human to boot!  
 
Today's featured album design shows off Dakota's talent and you can tell we are fans of her veil work from the spreads we selected below -- haha! But seriously. She knows how to make a bride look her best. We also love how Dakota showcased this downtown location and capture the pure joy of this wedding day! 
 
Dakota was so kind to take some photos of the finished KISS album. It's always a treat for us to see the finished product!  
 
Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this beautiful album design:

Lakeside New Jersey Wedding album design for Melissa MacDonald Photography

Album Designs
This is a sample album we created for New Jersey and Pennsylvania based wedding photographer Melissa MacDonald and we are OBSESSED with how it turned out! 
 
Photographers -- if you don't have a sample album, or your samples are out of date -- GET ONE! Seriously! A sample album is a game-changer! 
 
And one of the most important things about a sample album is that YOU are obsessed with it. Because if you are confident and excited about your sample album, your passion for albums will shine through as you share it with potential clients and that will impact your sales. To boil it down -- your clients will be excited about albums if YOU are excited about them! 
 
Melissa is so talented and we have loved working with her images for the last couple years. It was an honor to help her create this sample album design that we also printed for her! Here are a few of our favorite spreads from this design:

Scottsdale, Arizona Spring Wedding Album design for Melissa Jill Photography

Album Designs
Hey guys! Melissa Jill -- Align's founder here. I not only started Align, but I'm the longest running client OF Align -- haha! Our talented designers design all of my albums for my photography business. Every Thursday we feature a design here on the blog and this week, we're featuring one of my very own! Heather and Brent were married at a resort in Scottsdale, Arizona in March of this year and it was a GORGEOUS day. I still can't get over the desert landscape, the mountain views, and how all the colors from this day translated on film!  
 
This particular album was initially sold in my package with 17 spreads. I used my pre-designing up-sell workflow and presented the clients with a design showcasing a stunning story of the day with 25 spreads. They ended up upgrading and including all 25 spreads in their printed album! I am so grateful they did and that they have such a gorgeous heirloom in their home now to pass on to the generations to come!  
 
Here are a few of my favorite spreads from this beautiful design:

Garden-inspired Jewish Wedding album design for Rebekah J Murray

Album Designs
Virginia-based wedding and editorial photographer Rebekah J Murray is a delight to work with! We have been designing albums for her for 8 years now and her designs have been featured as favorites on our blog here time and time again!  
 
One thing Rebekah has done a great job of is communicating her design preferences. We always keep design preferences for each photographer on file so that we can make sure to nail first drafts no matter which designer is working with them. Rebekah prefers designs that have spreads with lots of negative space balanced by pages with full bleed images...somewhere in between our Classic and Simple design styles.  
 
This particular design was approved with NO REVISIONS and the final files were delivered just 5 days after the order was placed. There were two key things that really facilitated this quick turn-around: 
 
1. Rebekah's communication of her design preferences (see above).  
2. Rebekah selected the 'use all images sent' option on her order form AND she carefully curated the image selection she sent us. Photographers can either select for us to use all the images that are sent in the design OR to have the designer select the best images for the design from a selection of images that are sent. Truthfully either option works great, but in this case, the combo of the "use all" option and the fact that Rebekah selected a good amount of photos & didn't have very many one-off images that didn't flow with the rest made for a quick approval with no revisions needed.  
 
Yay for fast turn-arounds and quick approvals!!  
 
We love how this design turned out! Here are a few of our favorite spreads:

Midwest Farm Wedding Album Design for Bethany McNeill

Album Designs

Today's featured album is a BEAUT! Iowa-based wedding photographer Bethany McNeill shot a combination of digital and film for this wedding and it turned out SO stellar! She shared with us that this is her favorite album design to date! 
 
Personal weddings have a special feel to them and that's the case here -- this couple got married at the groom's Aunt and Uncle's farm right outside Chicago. Sunset photos in a bean field and the gathering of their friends and family on a piece of land that is dear to them made this day SO memorable! We are honored that we got the chance to layout Bethany's gorgeous photos and help make sure it was memorialized forever in an album! 
 
Bethany was so kind to take some photos of the printed Miller's Professional Imaging album. Here are a few of our favorite spreads:
