A great wedding album design has an impact and tells a story. Every time a couple pages through their professional wedding album they travel back in time. Couples can relive all the details and emotions captured during their celebration. However, for many professional photographers album design is a pain point. Time and cost can be a DYI deterrent. This is where a wedding album design service can be a huge asset.
Drawbacks of Designing Wedding Albums “In House”:
- Long turnaround times especially during busy seasons.
- Cumbersome design tools, and software learning curves.
- It sucks up too much of your time.
- Simply not enjoying the task of album design.
Time is Money
Professional photographers are creative artists and often want to be in control of every aspect of their image delivery. While being passionate is great, there are better ways you utilize your time and talent. Outsourcing tasks that do not create revenue will allow you to work ON your business rather than IN your business.
Let’s look closer at the wedding album design. Say it takes you five hours to design a simple wedding album. What could you be doing with those five hours rather than sitting in front of the computer? A more advanced album design could take you between 10 and 20 hours? If you are paying yourself, (or someone else,) between $15 and $20 an hour to design an album, where is that cost being recouped? Are you including that $225-$300 for album design in your margins? Even if you really enjoy creating an album layout, you may want to make your custom design services a special add-on or upsell.
