South Jersey Wedding Photographer: The Importance of a Wedding Album

So many clients want digital files, and I get it... IF you are planning to do something with them. Let's face it, life gets busy, and after the wedding, wedding planning is soon filled with another task, hobby, or priority. Then there is choosing your favorite photos- it can be a daunting task when left with hundreds of digitals and no guidance from a professional who's well-versed in album design. You may have all of your digital files, but what do you have to show for it? The reality of it is, most people are so busy, and while they have good intentions to make an album, or have prints and canvases made, they just don't have the time.  

It's important to have a wedding album... but not just a wedding album made on a consumer website, a *professional album.* A leather cover, thick pages, and great quality... quality that says 'this book is going to make it to my children's children' because photographs are precious. They capture a time in someone's lives that words could never explain and I think that every couple needs an heirloom to pass down and that deserves more than a skimpy book!

Here are some photographs of a recent wedding album from Kelly & Kevin's wedding at Barn on Bridge. Their wedding was so gorgeous it needed two blog posts, check them out here and here.  I love the color of leather they chose, it's so vibrant and fun.


Barn on Bridge Wedding Photographer: (More!) Kelly & Kevin

Kelly and Kevin are a couple that everyone wants to be around, they are both hilarious and so animated! They are also soooo in love! Their engagement session was a dream to shoot- it was easy to see how much they adore each other and translated so well on camera. Needless to say, I was pumped for their wedding at The Barn on Bridge in Collegeville, Pennsylvania to watch the two of them have the time of their lives with their closest friends and family. 

Some of my favorite highlights of their day:

-Kelly's father peeking over her shoulder as she read a card from her future hubby the morning of their wedding.

-Their rescue greyhound, Fabio, as a handsome Ring Bearer.

-A super silly co-matron-of-honor speech.

-The groom and his mother getting ready for the big day. 

-Tons of fun dance moves allllll. night. long.

Barn on Bridge Wedding Photographer: Kelly's Getting Ready

A lot of people ask me what my favorite part of a wedding day is... and that's a really tough question. There is so much goodness in one day- everyone is soooo overjoyed and dressed their best. One of my favorite parts of the day, is photographing the bride getting ready. It happens so naturally and unfolds beautifully. During this time, brides need very little direction and maybe because they are focused on their gorgeous gown, they don't really notice the camera. Not to mention, all of the gorgeous details I get to photograph- the shoes, the jewelry, the sash... all so pretty! I love to spend at least an hour with my brides getting ready, and of course I'll take more time if I can, because I love to capture them on their happiest day, wearing the most beautiful gown, hair and makeup perfectly done, and so much excitement in their hearts. We also did a "First Look" with the bride and her bridesmaids- that was adorable (see below)!


Here's the story of one beautiful bride, on her best day ever- Kelly at Barn on Bridge.
