Why I Love Outsourcing My Album Design


August 29, 2017

I’m a believer! I’m hooked! I’m never turning back!

Hiring an album designer has changed everything for me and my business and I want to share my story and my gushing review of Align Album Design with you guys on the blog today :)

I have a passion for not only capturing beautiful moments for my clients to cherish forever, but also giving them a beautiful experience as well.

What is ironic about that is that while the meeting, planning, engagement session, and wedding day experiences I was giving my brides were becoming more and more of what I wanted them to be, the album design side was severely lacking. It was the one area I felt that no matter how hard I tried, I wasn’t able to keep up and give my brides the beautiful experience they deserved.

Wedding season would hit and I would be bogged down with wedding after wedding to shoot and edit, and, as a result, album design fell to the wayside. My brides had to wait months for me to start their design, then several more months for me to finish the revisions and get the album delivered to them.

In the Fall of 2016, I made the decision that I needed a drastic change in my album design process and I reached out to Align Album Design.

I can’t even begin to express how thankful I am for Align! I’m continuously blown away by how friendly, professional, talented, and FAST they are! A 4-day turnaround time for completed designs… I was never able to do that! Fast and easy reviewing, commenting, and revisions. Almost instant revisions for my brides once they submit their revision requests. What?! Again, I was never able to do that on my own before.

I feel such a weight lifted off of my shoulders knowing that my brides are being well taken care of during the album design process… and I barely even have to lift a finger!

Investing in an album designer is one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business. Not only have I gotten hours upon hours of my time back, but my stress-level has gone down significantly in the year I’ve been using Align! I shoot an average of 25 weddings a year and almost every single one of my brides receives an album as part of her package. That’s a lot of albums to design, especially during peak wedding season! Knowing that I can now shoot a wedding then have my clients’ albums designed for them and delivered to them within a few weeks of their wedding – as opposed to months – is HUGE!

Oh and did I mention that Align is actually better at designing albums than I ever was? So that was just icing on the cake for me!

I honestly wish I had been using Align from the start of my business. It would have saved me so much time, energy, and stress. I would encourage any photographers who are on the fence about outsourcing their album design to Align to stop what they are doing right now and GO FOR IT! I cannot gush about them enough! :)
