Your Wedding Album

the blog

 After your wedding day is over and you have all your beautiful pictures in an online gallery, the next step is to consider a a wedding album. I’m a firm believer that pictures are meant to be printed, and an album is a beautiful way to have all your photos printed in one place! Albums make a great keepsake and are a beautiful way to look back on your big day.

You already have a print release for all your pictures, so you’re definitely allowed to use those pictures and design/order your own album. In case you want the hard work done for you though, I do offer album design! 

There are a ton of different options for albums online… some are typical photo books that aren’t really suited for wedding pictures… others are luxurious keepsakes that can cost upwards of $1,000! The albums that I offer range from $500 – $700. This cost includes the physical printed album and the design fee that I charge.

Keep reading to learn more about the albums that I offer, and the process of ordering your wedding album.

Album Options

Leather Layflat Album From Shutterfly

This album comes with a black leather cover and the pages are thick and lay flat when the book is open. This is one of the best leather wedding album options that I’ve found in my research. I love offering a leather option because it’s stain resistant, durable, and feels quality. Even though there are tons of high-end leather options out there for wedding albums, I find that this product offers the best value. You get great quality for a relatively lower price than other leather options. Shutterfly also frequently has sales, which would allow you to get a beautiful album for around $250-500 if you’re willing to wait for a sale.

The base page count starts at 50 pages, but you can add more pages if you want. This album is available in 10″x10″ or 12″x12″ sizes.

Linen Layflat Album From Artifact Uprising

For those who aren’t interested in a leather cover, the layflat linen cover album from Artifact Uprising is a great option! Just like the leather option from Shutterfly, the pages of this album are thick and lay flat. The linen on cover of this album feels quality and looks beautiful. There are several different color options to choose from to customize your album to match the theme of your big day. With this album, you’ll also be able to add an embossed title on the cover.

The base page count starts at 50 pages, but you can add more pages if you want. This album is available in 10″x10″ or 12″x12″ sizes.

The Process

If you’ve made up your mind that you want to order an album, great! Here’s how the process will work:

1. Visit your online gallery and “favorite” between 75-150 images that you want included in your album. 

2. After you’ve favorited the pictures that you want in your album, let me know and I’ll send you an album order form.

3. Once the form is submitted, an invoice will be generated. $150 is due as a deposit and the rest is due when I order your album. The final price will be adjusted based on any sales or extra pages. 

4. I will design you album and within 1 week, I’ll send you an online proof for you to make comments on. 

5. I will revise the album based on your comments. After the first revision, revisions are $10 per change. 

6. Once you approve your album design, final payment is due. After you pay the invoice, I will order your album and it will arrive to your house within 3 weeks.
