Design Process

1. Choose Your Book or Album

  • Album Cover Material: Linen, Leather, Acrylic, or Metal
  • Page Types: Thin or Thick
  • See book cover options HERE
  • See album cover options HERE
  • See book and album prices HERE
  • Album must be paid in full before design process begins (if it wasn’t already included in your wedding collection).

2. Select Images

  • Your wedding album will tell the story of your wedding day, so be sure to include all parts of the wedding story
  • Visit your personal wedding page emailed to you with wedding galleries.
  • Choose 50 images (the number included in my book/album prices). You may also choose more and leave it up to me to select the 50 best that fit the wedding story (or you may purchase additional pages).
  • I recommend the following ratio: 10 getting ready; 10 ceremony; 15 portraits (including wedding party, couple, & family portraits), 5 detail shots, and 10 reception.
  • Select your favorite images from your online album by clicking on the heart under each image “Save to Favorites”
  • If you’d like additional images (more than 50), additional album spreads are available for $50 a spread (two lay flat pages). Album spreads may include one panoramic shot or up 20 collage images.
  • Be sure to email Charla when you’ve completed your selections at charla@charlablue.com

3. Design Process

  • Once you’ve selected your album images and have emailed me, I will get to work on final edits of images and the custom design of your album.
  • Album design layouts/proofs will be uploaded to a separate gallery online
  • Please make comments under each layout for change requests (ie. swapping out images or altering placement or order of images)
  • Please be specific and detailed as possible in your change requests.
  • 2 rounds of revisions included in album price
  • Additional revisions are $25 per spread
