We take the digital photos received from your photographer, select the best photos, then design beautiful storytelling layouts to fill the pages of your wedding album. We will adjust any exposure and colour corrections to the selected images that appear in the album. For retouching such as skin smoothing, removal of objects, etc is available at an extra cost.
Our approach to album design is modern and minimalist to let your wedding day moments breathe on the page and for the images to tell the story of your best day ever.
To give you an idea of how the album pages will be laid out, we tell the full story of the wedding day in the logical order by choosing the best images from each section of the day.
Depending on the number of photos supplied, we generally dedicate 2-5 spreads for each part of the day. Typically the ceremony, couples portraits and reception take up more spreads as there tends to be more photos and formalities from those parts of the day.
We break down the wedding day into these sections – groom prep, bride prep, ceremony, congratulations, family photos, couple portraits and bridal party location shoot, and reception. Typical most client albums end up somewhere between 30-40 spreads (60-80 pages) with a maximum of 45 spreads (90 pages).
It is hard to envisage what all the above will look like, but don’t stress, The Coffee Table Book has been designing wedding albums since 2006. It’s much easier once you see the album design laid out in front which comes together during the proofing stage.
We collaborate with our couples during the review process to ensure all their favourite and must-have photos are in the album design. Couples have the opportunity to swap, add and remove images as well as add and remove pages to ensure you are 100% happy with the design before it goes to print.
