A photo album is more of a personal choice rather than a ‘must have’ these days. All the weddings I have photographed have wanted digital delivery so that they can print the photos at a later stage or make their own book/album if they ever want it. We live in a world now where 99% of our photos are on our phone and computers rather than in albums or frames. From a photographers view, it’s easier to not produce an album as the process can be very time consuming. It can also be frustrating for the couple, having to wait for the album to be finished.
When it comes to smart casual for men, go for casual trousers such as chinos or suit pants. In summer, you could even wear shorts. They can accompany their trousers with a long-sleeved shirt, and an optional jacket and tie. If you must wear denim, go for the stylish dark blue, tailored type.
At the beach. There are a couple reasons for this. The most obvious being if you lose that sucker in the sand or water, it’s a goner. The second and lesser known reason is because of the sand that can wedge itself in the ring setting or under the diamond. And you definitely don’t want to apply sunscreen when you’re wearing your ring, it’ll cloud your stone right up.
