choose to start their scrapbook with their baby photos,
and photos of each individual growing up. To do this
effectively, gather up favorite photos from parents and
other relatives. Sort through the photos systematically,
taking care to represent different ages and stages. It is
nice if the photos correspond (ie, a photo of the bride
playing with her mother's makeup corresponds with a photo
of the groom dressed in daddy's hat and boots) but is not
necessary. If you choose to use childhood photos, it may
be nice to include photos that will inspire memories in
your guests, such as all of the cousins on a camping
trip, or building a snowman in front of Grandma and
Help! I need advice on what music to use!
As with the
photos, consider your audience and the impression you
desire to make. Be certain that the music is appropriate
for listeners of all ages, and of course that it is
appropriate to the photos. It is not necessary to use
entire songs-- we can easily edit music and mix together
songs at the point of your chosing. Do not use all music
of the same genre and pace; the effect is numbing.
Rather, choose some music that is more upbeat, and some
that is more sentimental. I recommend a using minimum of
four songs, regardless of the length of your video.
