Would you want a digital or a physical wedding album—or both? Take a look at the digital album at the bottom of this post. It’s a brief sample, but it shows what’s possible: bride and groom choose their favorite song, and their wedding photographer uses it as background music for a slideshow of their wedding photos. In effect, you have a wedding album, but a digital one. I initially did this as an experiment, but after seeing the pleasing result, I thought to myself, “Why not offer this to my clients?”
With the development of digital-imaging software, we can expect a growing interest in digital wedding albums. They may not replace the fine, hand-made physical album produced by your wedding photographer, but they may serve as additional souvenir to your wedding, one that you can easily share with the guests and family who attended, by a mere link. Putting such an album together is not too long and laborious of a process (contact me if you have questions about that) and the result is very inspiring.
Take a look at this one. I prepared it from a collage of Roseville wedding photography projects I did, and a destination engagement shoot. I chose background music by James Brown (who is given credit in the Youtube listing). Isn’t the collage fun? Wouldn’t you want one for your wedding, a link you could share with family and friends as a ‘thank you’ for having come and made your day so special?
