In my last post, I introduced the 2012 Captivating Imagery Wedding Album Collection and unveiled the Classic Album. Today, I’m excited to share the Contemporary Album featuring images from Katherine and Robert’s lovely July wedding at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Like the Classic Album, the Contemporary Album is a flush mount album in a rectangular 10″ x 7″ format rather than the traditional square. This 20-page album is designed as 10 spreads so that the photos stretch right across the gutter, or the crease in the center for the binding. So you’re seeing what the pages look like side-by-side when you open the album. For now, I’m just showing the design for the pages, but the cover is a dark red alligator leather to compliment Katherine’s color scheme and it looks great!
Oh and the actual album is not watermarked—that’s just for the website.
I love Mellon Park—I think I must have shared that a million times already. So sorry for my redundancy! But I was thrilled that Katherine and Robert would be exchanging vows there. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the walled garden was a lovely setting.
It’s tough to select images to include in the album when you have upwards of 500 to choose from. But this image of them kissing on the right is, by far, my favorite of the day. I love their embrace and the emotion in their family members who officiated the ceremony.
And here comes my favorite part of the day—this is where image selection really gets tough.
Katherine and Robert are dog lovers and they really wanted a photo with their pugs, so they made arrangements with a friend to bring the pugs to the park for a few shots and then take them back home. These little guys were so great! They nearly stole the show!
This next spread takes some explaining—the Cascade bottle is what brought Katherine and Robert back together after years of being apart since they dated in high school. Katherine ran out of detergent and went to the grocery store to pick some up. They ran into each other at the store and have been together ever since. It was really sweet to see how she incorporated little details like this one into their wedding day.
The food by Tallulah’s Catering was delicious and Joy, the PCA’s director of special events, was fabulous. So this spread is a tribute to their success.
Katherine and Robert and their guests were really having a great time and really celebrated on the dance floor.
This last spread has a lovely image by Alex. Alex’s photos are sprinkled throughout this post, but this one of the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts deserves special recognition. Thanks Alex!
Next up, I’ll be sharing the design for the Chic album featuring photos from Callie and Brian’s September wedding.
