Modern Wedding Book Trends: Vintage Style Photography

Old is new this season. Vintage imitation has been in for Save the Date cards and wedding invitations for quite a while and now the trend seems to be extending to the the wedding albums. You certainly don't want the whole wedding book to look vintage unless your wedding was staged in a vintage style - Roaring 20s, 30s Hollywood, 70s Disco... Usually, you would want to have some vintage elements incorporated in the design. This can be sepia-toned photos, artfully grainy or faded photos for the background images of the layouts.



The book cover stylized as an old photo will make for a nice decorative element on your shelf.



Compare to the original photo below. Before converting it into sepia, PhotoHand designer retouched the image by eliminating the "view spoilers" - the pipe and the pigeon at the groom's chest level. Then the photo was brought to the most fitting lightness and color level to produce a bright picture.
