I can almost smell it. The rich scent of the leather… The softness of the cover… The thickness of the pages… Sorting through the images I can’t help but imagine what the final product will look like… Imagine the excitement of the couple as they open their heirloom album for the first time… Think about how much they’ll enjoy it as they flip through the pages as time goes by.
Designing albums has always been fun, but lately I can’t help but get a little… emotional about it. I may not be shooting weddings (for now) but the art and business of photography is still alive and well in my soul. The other day I had a couple from a few years ago contact me and tell me how their wedding album was “their most treasured possession” and how it’s sat on their coffee table for others to enjoy. Their photos are special. Treasured.
As I’ve been working on Andrea & Daniel’s wedding album I can’t help but think of what the other couple said or how much their album meant. THAT is one of the things I love most about photography. How the little moments, documented the right way, become more than just a memory. They become a reminder of the sacredness and joy of a day that went by all too quickly. Another thing I love to do is share some of my favorite images of those sacred moments. It’s something that I neglected to do for a while because I was so busy shooting and then became ill, but now that things are slowing down (hopefully) I wanted to share a few with you.
Andrea and Daniel are a wonderful couple with lots of love and spunk – my favorite type of people. I can’t wait to hear from them years from now, with stories of how much their wedding photos have continued to remind them of the love and laughter they shared on their wedding day. Here is a selection of special moments from their day.
