Wedding Album Design: Dekalb History Center Wedding

If you've read my blog for a while, then you know that I love designing albums. The story of a wedding comes to life in a well-designed album.

After a wedding is over, we edit and tone all the best photos, usually about 500 or so, and then we design an album using the best of the best.

We create the first draft of the album and show it off in a Premier Party. We bring wine and cheese or ice cream or some other fun munchie, to the couple's home, along with our computer. Then we set things up so we can show off the album design on TV.

After we show off the first draft at the Premier Party, we upload it to Album Exposure, a web site designed to make it easy to share comments about the album design. At that point, couples have a chance to let us know what, if any, changes they would like to make.

Here are a few favorite spreads from Melanie and Jeremy's wedding album design.

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
