The wedding is over and you can start to relax, you’ve got everything you need! Now it’s time to do the fun bit, processing the images and putting together an album that will knock your clients’ socks off. Here are five great assets to help you create an awesome wedding album, from Envato Elements.
Just drop in your pictures and text with the Simple Wedding Album for Adobe InDesign. As well as being a nice, classic-looking album for clients, it can also be used to present your work to potential clients. There are 28 pages in total and the download includes a link to the free font used.
Rustic Wedding is a lovely collection of presets for both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Speed up your editing workflow with film-inspired styles, natural toning and variations designed to match different lighting conditions, for consistency throughout.
Repeating patterns are the ideal way to add interest to albums by using them as creative backgrounds – like a scrapbook. There 15 seamless patterns each available in different formats to suit whichever software you use.
Add style and grace to your processing with Royal Wedding Pro Photoshop Actions. Produce a high quality and compelling result with just one click, and best of all: it’s non-destructive, so you can tweak layers without touching your original image.
Moscato Script is a handwritten font with tons of charm and a personal touch. The graceful, flowing script will add to any project as well as adding continuity across your album and any other extras you’re making, like social media headers, blogs and slideshows.
Each asset here is from Envato Elements, where you can download unlimited resources for a monthly subscription.
Tell a story and think about presenting your album chronologically to get a sense of how the day moved along. This doesn’t have to be rigid, as long as it follows a logical narrative.
Remember to include the ‘biggies’ like the exchanging of rings, the kiss and so on.
The length of the album should reflect the wedding. If it was a short, intimate ceremony then probably best not to include 400 pictures.
Keep the layout clean and uncluttered – remember to include some double page spreads and with things like text and shapes: less is more.
Despite the proverb, we do tend to judge books by their covers, particularly photo albums, so choose a photograph that’s going to be one your clients love, and remember to leave some space for a title.
