M: How did you decide on which wedding theme for your project? N: I knew from the start that I didn’t want my photobook to include text or scrapbooking images. In the case of a wedding, the pictures tell the story! I started with one of Mixbook’s standard wedding layouts, and just removed the text boxes. Because Mixbook allows you to fully edit the layout, this was very easy to do.
M: Are you a big Orioles fan? Can you share with us the story behind the photos in front of the stadium? N: Sure! My husband is a diehard O’s fan, and we are both originally from Maryland. In regards to wedding planning, he had two requests: pictures at Camden Yards (home of the Baltimore Orioles), and pictures with our dog, Ernie. I was on board with both of these ideas, and the easiest thing was to mix them together!
We decided to do our “first look” pictures at Camden Yards before heading to the venue for the ceremony. Ben’s mom arranged for the mascot to be there, and also for someone to bring the dog. Unfortunately, Ernie was terrified of the bird so there is no photo of us with both the bird and our pup, but we got some pics with each!
M: What was the process like? How did you decide on which layouts to use and how to format the book? N: I based everything on Mixbook’s example layouts, and just removed text boxes when needed.
Our photographer took more than 1,200 pictures so deciding on which photos to use was the hard part. Once that was settled in my brain, inserting the pictures into the layout was easy peasy. I like how you can Zoom In very closely to your layout. I gave my photos borders and the OCD side of me needed to double and triple check to make sure the borders matched up.
