The Album Design, Christine Foster Photography

I just received this Great note :)

We got the proofs yesterday they are all amazing it is going to be hard to pick pictures for the album. We may need your help.


No Worries! I am here to help!
All Albums are custom designed so remember this and know that anything can be done.  
The photo album may be the only prints that you make from your event sadly enough.  Images can be made into works of art such as canvases or framed prints - I had a client use an image from a shoot to create the headboard of her child's bed.... Technology is on our side.  Dan & Melissa just had this canvas made - It was as easy as measuring the space on their wall and them emailing me with the image number - Dan was even kind enough to show me what it looked like on the wall :)

Thanks Dan!  The canvas looks Great :) 

But back to the Album Design....  Go thru your images and make a list of image numbers of your favorite photos of the Guest of honor whether it be the Bride & Groom or the Mitzvah. From there extend this list to include immediate family, then extended family and then friends.   What were your favorite moments? 
Just as with the events that you create there are no set rules when you create the event album.  Just pick your favorite images and amazingly enough you will see the story of the event come before you.  Those detail shots of the tables and flowers make nice backgrounds for images - the densely packed dance floor also makes a great background image- 
As your album designer if I feel something is missing, I will find an image to fill it in.  You always give the final word when it's time to go to print. The pages are emailed to you for final approval.
When it comes to the physical appearance of the album - do you have a preference for a rectangle or a square?  A square is universal, a rectangle can be fun because you can make it portrait or landscape in design - 
Albums come in every color- pick your favorite color - mine is purple ;)  OR you can match your living room OR match to your dress or your event colors
Feel free to visit Christine Foster Photo on Pinterest  under the board - Album Inspiration for ideas
When you are ready just phone me or email me a list of images.  An appointment can be made to come into the studio to view fabric swatches for your book or swatches can be emailed.
I look forward to hearing from you.
