Wedding Photographers: First 3 Things to Do Before Creating That Wedding Album

Bristol wedding photographersFor Bristol wedding photographers, they need to learn to create albums of the events they photograph. It lends credence to their work, they are able to charge more and honestly, why not? if you are a wedding photographer, and you don’t have album options added to your packages, you are making your business less favourable. Though digital photos seem like the trend now, because they can be shared across social media platforms, can be stored in the cloud and don’t take up space in your house. Albums are classic and the joy of tracing your friend’s face on the album can bring nostalgic feelings. Physical photo albums can also be passed down from generation to generation, unlike their digital counterparts. Moreover, the album is the single most compact and tangible product any couple will have.

How do you get started designing an album?

Delete unwanted photos

Remember that during weddings, more photos than can fit into a wedding album are taken. So, you want to remove unwanted photos – photos that are too blurry, strangely tilted, duplicates or photos that ate very similar and so on. Some Bristol wedding photographers like take photos of chairs and tables, the building, beautiful objects around, flowers and the decorations (some will even take photos of the road that leads to the venue). Usually these “decorative photos” can add glamour to the album and make good backgrounds. You want to keeps photos of that nature.

Arrange the photos properly

Next, you want to put the photos in chronological order. You want to start from the beginning of the event and arrange through to the end of the event. Knowing that every event, wedding has a tale or story to tell, it makes more sense to arrange the album that way. It is unusual for stories to start from the end. So, you properly arrange the photos following a chronological order. You can rename the photos to make it easier too.

Choose a style/layout

After you have arranged the photos, you want to choose a style and/or layout. Here, the creativity is endless. Or almost endless. For Bristol wedding photographers, there are lots and lots of layouts and styles to choose from, though they want to understand what their clients want. They can even put in their own creativity in how to display the pictures, but they want to avoid anything complicated. I believe that there is beauty in simplicity. By determining the style and layout beforehand, you would have figured out how many spreads (double-pages) should the album have and how many photos should go on each spread.

You want to choose an empty wedding album that is made-to-last and beautiful. Something sturdy will last for generations and achieve the most important aim of wedding albums, which is to preserve your wedding photos.

Cool Hacks For The Wedding

Go for flowers in bulk.

Talk to your local suppliers ahead of time. Ordering flowers out can be tricky. Your expected types of blooms might be cancelled out or might have delays on the delivery. You need to be willing enough to swap them out for more convenient and available options in the event that something comes up. If you manage your expectations the right way, you get to make sure that you have everything worked out for you so far with little in the way of things.

Go for a public area for your venue.

Of course, you need to secure all of the required permits and the like but with a little bit of planning and logistics, you will be able to have everything that you could possibly need with the most minimal of costs.

Do your own wedding favors.

This DIY type of thing can work out to your advantage but you need to know for sure that you really have figured things out ahead of time and that more than that, you have more than enough time to work out the DIY projects that you do plan to take on at the end of the day.

Start calling in favors. your friends and the rest of your acquaintances actually have something to offer out to you if you only know how to tap into them the right way when it all comes down to it. If you know of people who can sing, perhaps there isn’t any need for you to hire out the entertainment for the wedding ceremony and reception. Think about all of the money that you will be able to save that way. Another thing that you should try to see is if you happen to have any people in the family who can really cook well. Perhaps you can hire them out as a one-off catering type of deal. They will charge you less, if at all, and you still get to serve food that you like to the guests who will be attending your wedding at the end of the day. One thing that you cannot just entrust to people such as friends and family though are your wedding photos.

You really do need a professional wedding photographer Bristol for something like this.

This is a job that you ought to look into as much as you possibly can. You need someone who is skilled and experienced in the job. Try to see as well if your parents from either side of your family will be willing to chip in for the costs for the wedding. Perhaps one side can cover for the venue while the other can cover for the fees of the wedding photographer Bristol that you plan on hiring. This is practical and convenient and can save you from so much trouble somewhere along the way.
