The final product that a wedding photographer delivers to their client has, for many years, been a personalized wedding photo album of some type. Even in the digital, online, and social media world of modern photography, the personalized wedding photo album is still a desirable photobook for most wedding photography clients.
While an album with pockets, corners, or other photo pages is still a good option, since we are living in a digital age with regards to photography, there are other options like pre-printed personalized photo books that we can offer our wedding photography customers. Let’s see the options.

Traditional Wedding Album

I’m sure everyone remembers physical photo albums with pages that held physical prints of various sizes. Some were like a scrapbook with the prints attached with corner mounts or possibly with some sort of glue or tape on the back of the prints. Others had pages made of plastic or vinyl that had pockets for prints to fit in.
A traditional style of personalized wedding photo albums used pages with fancy papers and some form of invisible mounting. They also may have had covers made from leather with names embossed and possibly a beauty shot mounted in the cover.
There were quite a lot of super fancy personalized wedding photo albums available for budgets low to high and the putting together of such an album was an art form in itself. I still like these, but there are many other methods we can also use now, taking advantage of the capabilities of digital files.

A digital photo album can be made in several ways, perhaps the most common being a video montage with a musical soundtrack as the audio backdrop. Of course, you could also simply electronically deliver the digital files for your customer to use in whatever way they see fit.
If you decide on this option, your clients miss out on your expertise and artful eye in designing a personalized wedding photo album, plus you miss out on increasing your profit margin with possible add-ons and repeat sales.
