How to Choose Photos for Wedding Album
I've already given the reasons why I think everyone should move past "just digital files" and opt for printing their wedding pictures and making beautiful wedding albums.  Below is my guide on how to choose photos for your wedding album.  The amount of images you have in your wedding album corresponds to the size of your wedding and the hours of wedding day coverage. Keep in mind that the more family and guests you want to have in our album, the bigger it gets.  I suggest you begin by choosing 40 as a starting point.Choose the images that you feel the most connection to and that showcase the moments you want to preserve and remember. There is no one-size-fits-all formula. Just like each relationship, each wedding and each marriage, each wedding album is different.It comes down to these two things: Look for the essentials. Trust your instincts. This album will tell your story - and your story is important. Here are the highlights to look for when you are choosing photos for your wedding album.

Review: Sleeklens Lightroom Presets
To illuminate a little of my behind the scenes workflow, my usual post shoot routine is to download my raw files right into Photo Mechanic where I rename files and flag the keepers. From there the keeper are imported to Lightroom for lens and camera profile adjustments and basic edits; primarily color and exposure corrections. On export, some (my studio favorites) get a further gentle tweak in Alien Skin Exposure 10. And a few more get polished within Photoshop.  I haven?t used much of the Lightroom?s preset capability in a while, so I was interested to explore the Sleeklens presets when they asked me to do a review of their Forever Thine Wedding Workflow.Their Forever Thine collection includes Lightroom presets and brushes.  And oh was I excited to play with the brushes.  Brushes, radial and graduated filters are some of my favorite LR features.

Commander’s Mansion Fall Wedding
They met tango dancing in DC.  And many moves and a few years later they were planning their late October wedding at the Commander?s House in Watertown.  It as a low-key and intimate wedding, with about 30 guests.   As dancing is close to their heart, and the start of their love story they wanted to tango - thus the parlor floor and the band were carefully considered.  A simple civil ceremony was held upstairs in the Commander's Mansion Yellow Room with an officiant and strings, and lots of beaming from the bride and groom.
