Apart from receiving your album and flicking through it for the first time, this is by the far the best part of designing your album! If it’s summertime, make yourself your favourite refreshing cocktail or crack open a beer and find a cool spot to go over your gallery one more time. If it’s winter, I recommend cuddling up with some mulled wine or a hot cup of tea. Either way, make a date night out of it and enjoy!
When choosing images, remember that this is for you! It’s one of your first keepsakes as a married couple, so don’t feel obliged to fill it with pictures you think you should have. There’s no wrong or right – just choose what you like the most! If you’re still struggling to choose, try to think of your album as a picture book telling the story of your day. What photos best tell your story?
In the end, you need to choose up to 70 of your favourite photos from the full gallery. To choose them, simply flag your photos. This will work out to roughly 2-3 images per page in a 26-page (13-spread) album. Some pages will have one photo, some might have four, but about 70 total photos works perfectly to tell your story beautifully without being overwhelming.
If you really can’t choose, don’t worry! You can always choose more and simply add additional pages to your album. Each additional page costs $35 (or $70 per double-page spread).
