Do we really need a professionally designed album?
We believe the best way to share and enjoy your photos is in a high quality, professionally designed album. There is nothing like a professionally designed leather bound wedding album to preserve your wedding day memories. Our albums will last for generations if properly cared for. While digital images on a disc are currently the most common way to view and share your photos, technology is always evolving and there is no guarantee that your digital images will be easily accessed in 10, 20 years, but your wedding album will always be viewable and can be enjoyed as a part of your family heirloom.
Can’t we just make our own photo book online?
Sure, there are numerous consumer services that will accept your digital images and can quickly produce a snapshot style photobook. The difference is photobooks are not comparable to the photo albums that we design for you. We work only with professional album companies that specialize in custom wedding albums. Their labs are calibrated to our computer monitor, which means the color balance of your images and the overall quality of your album will meet our specifications. The end product is a high quality, unique wedding album that will last 100 times longer than a consumer photobook.
If we order a professional album, what is the process?
You can either choose your own photos yourself (like we did for our own wedding, but it also took us 1-1/2 years to get that done!), or you can have us select the best images for you. We personally design every page of your flush mount album, and they are available in a variety of cover styles, sizes and finishes. Once the design is done, we will email you the proof and you can make up to 2 changes without charge. After your proof approval, the album will go to print and it will take up to 16 weeks for you to receive it.
