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.
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.
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
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.
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.
