Why should I even consider doing this?

I get it... this is an expensive investment but it is so worth it.  Your wedding photos are literally the only thing that lasts from the wedding day.  The flowers eventually die, the DJ goes home, the food gets eaten, the dress and/or suit gets put in a closet and the venue sees another couple but your wedding photos last forever.  So why not have a beautiful album created to remember your big day?

How is my money spent?

First... on the album itself.  These are beautiful linen or leather layflat albums (the albums that legit lay flat when open and have those cool thick pages).  Second... is time.  I spend time professionally designing the page layouts for you and making sure that the images you have selected flow to tell your story of the day.  You get up to three revisions to move photos around or swap images and once that is done I put the order in for you.  I am a graphic designer during the week so I know a thing or two about layouts ;)

What are my options?

My base album starts out as a 10x10 20 page linen album.  There are a BUNCH of cover options - listed below - to customize your album to be exactly what you want!

The album to the right is silver linen with a my favorite illustrated cover :)

The Wedding Album

Request an album!

You thought about it and you decided that you really want to have an awesome album to remember your day!

You can either add it on to your wedding package or reach out to me after any session to set this up.

Albums are only purchased via a separate invoice after the photos have been delivered.

Select Your Photos

The standard album comes with 20 pages or 10 spreads.  This ends up being around 40 photos that you can select for the album.  

I know it seems like not very many photos in the grand scheme of things but it allows me to have room to have full page images or full page spreads which are really cool in a final album.

The Design

Once you have made all your photo selections I start the design of your final album.  Within roughly 2 weeks I will have a mock for you to review and approve of.

If you want to move a few photos around or change some images out you have up to 3 revisions you can make.

Once I get the final approval from you we move on to ordering.

Ordering & Delivery

You approved the design of your album and now I will put the order in!  It can take up to 2 weeks for you to receive it after the order has been placed.

If you are considering this as a Christmas gift, please order in October to make sure I have plenty of time to finish up.

Finally... ENJOY your new album!
