Featured Photographer: Melanie Rebane Photography
Melanie Rebane is a wedding, boudoir and portrait photographer from Ottawa, Ontario. Melanie’s elegant images have graced the pages of many wedding magazines and popular wedding blogs.
I asked Melanie a few questions about her work, and why she loves providing albums to her clients.
Why do you love selling wedding albums to clients? Why are they important to your couples?
Wedding albums are the heirloom that tells the story of the day from the anticipation, the tears, laughter surprise and spirited celebration of the wedding day. My clients love seeing their album designs because they bring together their favourite images into cohesive and beautiful story, which is so different from seeing a full gallery collection of hundreds of photos.
I encourage all my clients to make the investment in an album. In many cases few people print from their DVD and the archival quality of the albums is such a lovely way to cherish the photos they have invested in having taken that day.
Nikon or Canon?
Canon all the way! Looking forward to getting one of the new bodies coming out this year.
What is your favourite lens?
85 1.2 and the 35 mm 1.4 – I really can’t decide between the two.
Favourite kind of candy:
Coke bottle gummies.
Melanie chose a mixed layout of full bleed and white space for her clients’ One album from Finao.
Liz Bradley, Photographer
I am a self-proclaimed nerd who gets excited and captivated by great design.
I’m addicted to TV & DVDs, Prada & Burberry glasses, Coach purses & shoes, candy, grocery shopping, and organization.
I am a pet and wedding photographer in Ottawa, Canada and a professional graphic designer.
I just got my first album design from Halftone Media and I am blown away! I cannot believe it… WOW! I can’t wait for Liz to design more for me!
I was SO excited to receive my album that Halftone Media had designed… but when I opened the box I was speechless. Even though I had seen the online proof… there is no way I could’ve been prepared for what an amazing job they had done!
