Your album should outlast you guys and your marriage, don’t you think?
Sure you can go print a crap book at Walgreens or whatever, but that book isn’t going to last forever and might even end up in a junk drawer. Ok, sorry to be so aggressive but I just think if you’re going to pay me a ton of money to take your photos that you should look at them a bunch and have them printed for everyone to look at forever. Who hasn’t dumped photos into Dropbox and promised to make an album — only to never look at them again? Your memories are not meant to live in the Cloud. You’re dropping the big bucks on a photographer for the most special day of your life, why wouldn’t you give the final product a luxury roll out?
How It Works
Choose your photos
Once you get your gallery back, you’ll see a feature to favorite your photos. Choose 50-75 photos you love and let me know when you’re ready. While I work on designing your album, you pick your album’s size and amount of spreads.
After that you choose customizations and add on options! This part is super fun. You’ll choose the album cover material and debossing options. I’ll send back the design layout, and you let me know if you want any changes made.
3. Order + Love
Once you love it, you can decide on how many copies you want and in which sizes, we’ll put the order in and you’ll have it in 4 weeks!

15 thick, layflat spreads (30 pages) are included in each album. This varies from person to person, but most people end up with 25 spreads (50 pages) — after they see the design they end up adding more so they can fit in all of their favorites!
The max amount of spreads you can have is 40 (80 pages)
Each additional spread is $35.
Debossing is when you imprint into your album cover, creating a depressed effect. You can opt to deboss your names and/or your wedding date on the front of your album, or a short quote that’s meaningful to you. This is totally optional, as some people would rather have the front cover be simple and plain.
Debossing is a $50 add on.
Parent + Additional Copies
If you want additional copies and sizes of your album, you can order them at a slightly discounted price. These can only be added on when purchasing the full album. These make great gifts for parents and grandparents!
There is a $5/photo fee for a swap if you want to mix it up
These albums are 6×6 and also work great for gifts. They are an exact mini replica of your own album, no changes can be made. These can only be added on when purchasing a full album. Also, these albums are made out of recycled materials from your bigger album, which is pretty sweet.
Why are they so expensive?
Can’t I just make and print an album myself online?
These albums are the real deal - they’re heirloom albums and crafted to stand the test of time and last for generations. They’re lay-flat offering full panoramic views, and have thick pages with the highest archival quality ink and paper, plus hand-stitched binding to add craftsmanship and durability. In other words, everything that’s used to create your album is museum-quality stuff and you won’t find this shit at Walgreens as they are exclusively sold to photographers. (Seriously, we have to fill out applications, and it’s part of the reason you hire a professional!)
Can I see or make changes to the album before I order?
Yes, each album is custom designed from the photos you favorite in your gallery. You’ll be able to make comments, request photo swaps and changes and we’ll go back and forth until it’s perfect. If you want to be more involved in your album design, I’m happy to meet with you for coffee and make changes in-person.
How long does it take?
Once the design is finalized, you will receive your album within 4 weeks! For the design process, it can take anywhere between 3 weeks to 2 months. In my other life I am a project manager so I promise to keep it moving.
Are there any other costs?
Yes - taxes, 6.25%. And shipping is on me, but if you want to rush your order and receive your album in 7 days, you can do that for an extra $100.
Do i have to decide now?
Nope! If you want to wait until you’ve received your gallery and the wedding craziness has calmed down, that’s cool. A lot of people also like to order their album for their 1 year anniversary or someone they love will order it for them. Copies also work great as gifts for parents and grandparents! If you want to order for the holidays, make sure to let me know by October 1st.
