Creating my honeymoon photo book

Posted By Amy S On September 16, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Wedding | 4 Comments

I’m still relatively new to photo book [1] making and until recently, have used Simple Path [2] for all of my books. But now that I have photos from my wedding and honeymoon, I find I’m more interested in getting each page just right and I feel like I have “graduated” to Custom Path [3].

My new husband is a fantastic photographer and took some great shots of our honeymoon in Fiji. As soon as we got back, I couldn’t wait to get started on the photo book. Since there were so many gorgeous scenes to include (our ocean view, beautiful sunrises, the beaches) I knew I wanted to use a lot of full bleed layouts, but I also had so many photos that I wanted to get in the book (we took over 1,000), so I had to carefully pick my favorites. It certainly was not easy, but it did force me to find the photos that best tell the story of our honeymoon.

I started with our typical morning – watching the sunrise from our deck and drinking coffee. Then moved on to breakfast – we loved the meals so much, Michael took photos of everything we ate.

The next few pages give a tour of the island – the beach, our room, the pool.

Then, we move on to activities. The snorkeling was incredible in Fiji, so I had to include snaps of the brightly colored fish and sharks that we saw every time we swam in the ocean.  We also had an amazing picnic out on a private sand spit, which was a 20 minute boat ride from our resort. Those photos turned out so well – the colors were unbelievable!

Then, last but not least, were our evenings in Fiji – beautiful sunsets, great tropical drinks and lots of fresh seafood.

It was definitely a trip of a lifetime for us and choosing just the right photos will help us remember all of the great moments we spent together on our honeymoon.
