Product Highlight | Custom wedding album, parent album & guestbook

When a package from our album vendor arrives on our doorstep, I swear it's like Christmas morning. I tear open the box and I pick up that beautifully adorned book and carefully turn the pages, taking the time to feel the lovely quality of the paper and linger over every image. I usually end up smiling at the memories of the wedding it holds inside, reflecting on how much fun we had with the sweet couple and their family. There is absolutely nothing like knowing we can give that same "Christmas morning" feeling to our clients. Photographs on a screen are pretty, but that's not what they were ever meant for. The experience of holding a real, tangible heirloom album with your beautifully printed photographs is like no other.

Custom Wedding Album

Two of our Wedding Collections include custom wedding albums, and they may also be added A La Carte to any Collection as well. Custom wedding albums are printed on professional photographic paper with thick, archival quality pages. Cover options include a variety of leathers and linens as well as custom photo wrap covers. Leather and linen covers can feature "Cameo" image inserts as shown above, or elegant debossed lettering. 

We custom design all of our client albums. Our design style is clean and elegant and formatted in "storytelling" fashion with the beginning of the album starting with "getting ready" photos, and ending with your "grand exit."

How many photos are included?

We have a recommended number of images for each size. For aesthetic purposes, we prefer to see fewer images so as to avoid an over-crowded layout. Carefully selecting your absolute favorite images to be included in the album is the best way to ensure the most beautiful and emotive design. What about the rest of the images? We recommend printing as many of your photos as possible, even if only as 4x6's, to be saved and kept in a slip-in album.  

8x8 30-sided album - 35 images
10x10 30-sided album - 55 images
12x12 30-sided album - 65 images

10x10 30-sided custom wedding album wrapped in "Monsoon" (a great Navy blue) leather featuring debossed lettering. The couple's wedding colors were Navy and yellow, which made this combination perfect. The variety of leather and linen colors will allow you to select one complementing your own wedding colors, or you may opt for a classic black or white. The 10x10 30-sided is our most popular size for wedding couples.

Parent Album

We are excited to offer a scaled down version of our custom wedding album, priced perfectly as an option for gifting to parents. Your parents may want their own memento of your wedding day, but may not necessarily need or want a larger leatherbound book. We now offer a press-printed album available in three sizes. These can contain duplicate layout design as your own wedding album with the same images, or we can custom design your parent album with different images as well. Parent albums do come with fewer leather and linen options and do not feature "Cameo" image inserts.

The thinner spine and press-printing put the parent album at the perfect price point for gifting to parents. Professional printing and custom design means there are no sacrifices in quality.

Guestbook

This is such a fun idea, just about everyone we've shown it to loves it. A photo guestbook featuring your engagement photos is such a great way to collect special messages from wedding guests. Guestbooks are printed on matte paper, making them perfect for smudge-free signing with any type of pen. We recently had a bride order one and ended up loving it so much she actually didn't want anyone to write in it, so she just put it on display at her reception but had another sign-in book for her guests. 

Custom guestbooks are 8x8 and feature 20 sides (pages), with room for up to 30 images. The design of each spread is done with signing in mind, so you will see more white space.

Guestbooks are offered in the same variety of cover options as our Custom Wedding Albums. Pictured above is an 8x8 20-sided guestbook, sitting on top of the 10x10 30-sided and 12x12 30-sided wedding album for size reference.
