- Wedding: October 2013
I have almost 1,000 pro pictures, and I love all of them. and sure, many of them are a few different shots of the same moment, so in those cases it’s easier to pick a “favorite”. And a lot of the shots of our parent’s friends that we don’t know very well can be cut. But even if that gets rid of half, that’s still 500 pictures. And, no, I certainly don’t need all 500 in my wedding album, but how do I narrow it down more, when I love all the pics so much?
I made albums for our parents, and that was difficult enough- but a little easier, since I knew that my “audience” for that book would want only certain things, and not everything.
Now i’m working on ours, and it is proving much more difficult. even with multiple pictures on most pages, I feel like at the rate i’m going, my album is going to be a bazilion pages long. (I kid, of course, but you know what I mean).
So, for those of you that made wedding albums, how did you narrow down your pictures, and pick the “best of the best”? I usually have a good editing eye, but clearly not in this case.
I should note that I know how much of a first world problem this is. (“oh no! I have too many awesome pictures!”) And I know that eventually I will just have to bite the bullet and start cutting. I just thought I would ask what other folk’s method was, in case there is an editing philosophy I may not be thinking of. 🙂
