My job as a visual storyteller is to show all aspects of your day. I shoot photographs specifically for your wedding album, and I envision your story timeline while I photograph your friends, family and all the events you have carefully planned for your special day.
You might not frame a photograph of your wedding bouquet, or your grandfather's watch. These images are essential pieces of your wedding story and are photographed specifically for your wedding album.
After your wedding, your photographs will be beautifully preserved and showcased in a custom flushmount album of your choice. This timeless album is the first piece of your family history together and is the best way to share your wedding photographs with people you love the most.
Albums are available to add on at the time you book your wedding or can be purchased after your wedding, even a year or two later. See our wedding albums below and contact Candice with any questions.
If you have an album included in your wedding collection, or if you’re adding one after the fact – congrats! There is no better way to showcase your wedding, and I absolutely love working with you to create a completely unique photo story of your day. My aim with the wedding album is to create a design that will enable future generations to experience how your wedding day looked and, more importantly, how it felt.
A great album should tell the story of the day through the little moments that happened, and showcase the beautiful details that you put so much time into creating. It can also serve as a record of who the important players are at this point in your life.
As you begin to choose the images for your album, I recommend focusing on the important moments and feelings that your photos evoke.
I think a lot of couples go into the process with a checklist of photos that should be included (family formals, cake cutting, first dance, etc.) rather than looking at the bigger picture of how did we feel.
CHOOSING IMAGES FOR YOUR ALBUM
I love showing clients the story I captured for them… the little moments I look for that best tell their love story. You are welcome to select your wedding favorites in your online gallery and I will add them to your design. We usually start with the slideshow selections in the initial book design and will have one round of changes. Please note that after the initial complimentary round of changes, additional changes are billed at $100 per round.
Choosing your album cover
Album covers come in a wide range of colors and materials. Scroll through the swatches below. I'm happy to make suggestions.
CREATING A COLLECTION OF FAVORITE IMAGES
The easiest way to let me know your favorite images is to create a “favorites” collection in your online gallery. I’ll provide instructions for creating a favorites collection if you need help. Please ensure that you “send to photographer” once you’ve completed your favorites collection, then shoot me a quick email to let me know to look out for it (occasionally I don’t receive an automated notification email).
ADDING ADDITIONAL PAGES
If you’re having a hard time narrowing down your image choices – or if you just want a more complete story of your wedding day – you will likely want to purchase additional album pages. The pricing for additional pages can be found on page one of your contract, or email me if you’d like current rates. When sending me your image choices, please indicate if you’d like me to stick to the number of pages included in your initial collection investment (usually 20 pages, or 10 spreads) or if you would prefer me to create the best possible design for your wedding day. You will have the option to choose which of any additional pages you’d like to purchase, and which you’d rather not invest in. Most couples allow me to create my ideal version of their album, then choose a few spreads to remove if necessitated by budget.
