Amber says, "I have never ever created a 2 page layout. I'll admit. I was totally unsure about this. Then I decided to visualize the layout more like a wedding album spread that I would put together for one of our brides. So having redirected my vision really made my layout come together MUCH more how I feel best fits me and my style. I didn't want to clutter the pages with tons of photos, just because there are two pages. I just wanted something simple. I wanted it to focus on the images, just like when I design a wedding album. The focus is the images. No crazy background or things to distract. So Josh and I took some fun photos of us out at a local park after a client meeting one day. I decided since there were two images, almost exactly the same, except I was in one on the right page and Josh was in the one on the left page, it'd be perfect for a 2 page layout! I knew I wanted to tie the pages together somehow and like I mentioned, wanted to create a 'spread' rather than a 2 page layout. I thought the banner and clouds would do that nicely! My process was more of I created a larger 1 page layout that is just split down the middle. I am SO happy with the results and feel it really fits my style perfectly! Just goes to show you that you can find a 'vision' of what you want to create anywhere! Magazine layouts, ads, anything that inspires you!"
The simplicity of this spread is truly eye-catching and the careful planning and thought that went into it really shows. Thanks so much for sharing this with us Amber!
