Washington DC Wedding Photographer: Stephen Gosling Photography
A lot of couples (if not all) have some sort of sign-in book. Be it an actual book, a matted print or even a “thumb print tree”, there is always something for guests to leave their mark in or on. If you have an engagement photo shoot with me why not turn those images into your sign in book?
I have a couple of books to show you here…
Lets start with a book that has been laid out to be a guest sign in book. I have intentionally left space around some of the photographs so that the book can be used at a wedding and signed by the guests.
I love custom photo covers. This way the whole image can wrap around from the front of the book to the back of the book.
You can see the continuation from the front cover come all the around to the back of the book.
Now lets move onto a book that has been designed exactly the same as I would an album. When I design albums; I design in what is called a spread (2 pages = 1 spread). I intentionally design spreads with images going across the center (the split between the two pages). With albums this does not pose a problem because the images print across the center. With books there is a hinge or gutter running down the middle of the spread so you have to be careful with your layout.
If you have any questions about covers, embossing, albums in general or any other product please do not hesitate to get in touch!
