Q+A: Selecting Photos for your Wedding Album | ShutterChic Photography

Posted in: Q+A, ShutterChic, Weddings

After the wedding, it’s time to catch up on what you’ve missed while you were on your honeymoon, unpack and put away all your wedding gifts AND take a look at all your wedding photos! One of my personal favorite products that I offer is a wedding album. It’s the perfect way to put all your best wedding photos together in one tangible item that you’ll have for the rest of your life!!

Once you get all the photos back from your wedding photographer the wedding album design process begins! I tell clients to select 50-60 of their favorite images that will go in their wedding album. I’ve decided this year that I’ll provide an album photo check-list. Below is the number of each type of wedding photo I recommend including in your favorites!
