There is no doubt that the wedding is one of if not the most anticipated day of anyone’s life. So it is more than obvious that virtually everything has to be perfect, including the photos commemorating the best moments of your most special day. But even if everything goes according to plans, there is still one thing you have to deal with in a similarly perfect fashion, therefore putting the cherry on top of the cake: creating the wedding photo book.
Although it’s not an easy task, with the help of a professional designer and/or the use of a photo book builder, it’s more than manageable.
Solution No. 1: Asking a Professional
Although many newlyweds think that the pictures taken by family members, friends and acquaintances are enough to fill a photo book or album, you should always hire a professional photographer (or two) to follow you around during the big day. An even better option is to look for someone who will not only take pictures, but will also select the best of those photos and arrange them any way you wish in a stylish photo book. Keep in mind, though, that talent in photography does not automatically equal editing skills as well.
Therefore, when looking for the photographer on the internet or on freelancer websites, be sure to check whether the chosen person is also willing to put together a photo book of your wedding photos as an extra service or as part of the price you have agreed on. If photo book editing is not a part of the chosen photographer’s skills, do not hesitate to ask about it before signing that person up for work. Thankfully most photographers won’t reject the option to make your wish of a beautiful wedding photo book come true, but even if they are not capable of professional editing they will likely recommend a designer to help you out.
Solution No. 2: Designer Services
Although it is quite inconvenient to hire another person to design your wedding photo book or album, it is more than recommended if you want a quality end product. Like in the case of professional photographers, freelance websites are full of skilled designers ready to create wonderful photo books using your wedding photos, taking into consideration any request. Additionally, these professionals usually make slight modifications on the final product for the better that you might not have considered, turning the book or album into a masterpiece to be cherished for generations.
Solution No. 3: The DIY Method
Photographers and designers definitely don’t fancy this method, but it is without doubt the best way to ensure that you’ll get what you want. Not to mention that all photo book builders have wedding themes, while offering various sizes, quality materials and different embellishment options to make the photo book even more personal. To top it all, not only do some builders allow others to collaborate on the project with you (even by simply uploading photos), but – as the case of BrideBox shows – can also be specialized in wedding photo books and albums only.
