Is this how you feel when you begin to think about getting your wedding album photographs together?! I think it MUST be since I know PLENTY of brides out there who keep procrastinating! LOL! (you know who you are : )…..
I’m not gonna lie, it does take time, but in the end it’s definitely worth it!
Here are some baby steps towards gettin this baby done!! But first, ask your photographer how many images they recommend for your size album. Personally, I say less is more…
Also, remember that since all weddings are unique, your photo selections and album will be too. Some albums have a lot of “getting ready” and others don’t have any. Others have a lot of reception, but few portraits, and others are the opposite…..you get the point…..
1-Separate your photographs into groups, such as:
getting ready, ceremony, portraits, bridal party, family, reception. etc. You can do this with digital files or with printed proofs.
2-Start with the smallest group. Select your favorites from that group.
3-Move on to the 2nd smallest group and do the same. Then go on to the 3rd smallest group…
WOW, look! You’re already 1/2 way through your groups!
4- Grab a glass of wine, or chocolate…or better yet, wine AND chocolate!
5-You can either continue at this point or congratulate yourself for getting this far, and pick up where you left off on another day.
6-Once all your groups are completed, you will most likely have to repeat and edit again until you are close to your goal # of images.
7-If you’re still stuck, ask for help : )
Get a friend’s opinion or ask your photographer. It’s always easier for an outsider to edit photographs because they are not personally attached. And although your photographer is still “attached” he/she should know what will work out nicely “as a whole story/layout”.
Repeat STEP 4 as necessary.
