Our memories are fickle things.... Trying to recall a memory can be like sifting through an entire beach looking for a single grain of sand.... Your wedding memories are meant to be experienced, over and over again, not just by the two of you, but by your children, and grandchildren to come. Our fine art albums will help you relive your wedding day with luxurious papers, elegant covers and of course, timeless images. Let's get started and never forget the day you started forever.
An immense amount of time, care and detail go into the album design. The goal of the album design process is to combine our creative vision of your wedding day with your ideas in a collaborative effort to create a beautiful heirloom.
What does this mean? That means that in order to get your ideal album, you will need to give some thought to your design. At the very least, we need to know know your favorite images from your special day. Photography is a subjective art and our favorites may not necessarily align with yours. This initial process is important to get us started on the right track. From there, we will take your selected images, add in additional images we feel help tell the story, and lay out a draft of the album in accordance with our established album style, utilizing timeless and clean, custom layouts.
1. Begin Image Selection. Once selection is complete please email us that your selections are finalized.
2. Initial Design – After we receive your Album Order, Design Deposit and your Album Favorites, we will design the first draft of your album and send over a copy for you to review. Send $200 album design deposit.
3. Major Revision – When you receive this draft, please review this in detail with the understanding that this is our creative interpretation of the story of your wedding day. You are free to make image and layout changes right in the album portal software. We have found this to be the fastest and most effective way to communicate your ideas. However, if you prefer, we can also discuss the changes over the phone, or we can communicate via email. In any case, we ask that you have your exact changes (image numbers, layout changes, etc) in your notes before the discussion.
4. Minor Revision – After these changes are communicated, we will redesign the album and send over a second draft. You are then free to make minor changes; however, any layout changes may result in additional fees.
5. Complete invoice (if any)
6. Send to Print – After these revisions are made, and you have approved the album in the portal and any invoice is settled, the album design it is sent to the printers.

Each album includes a 20 page design. Our gallery system makes it easy for you to choose your favorite images to include in your album by simply selecting the heart icon on each image.
A 10 spread (20 page) album yields approx. 30-60 photos. I like to keep each spread to 3-6 images to keep the album feeling light and airy, however if there are lots of dancing photos, they can incorporated into a larger collage-style spread. You may choose to add additional spreads if you would like to have more images in your album. We keep our layouts classic and use a white background to help steer the focus to your images. Our albums are "gutter-less" and can be designed across both pages of a spread. Don't worry - we take special care to still be sure the crease does not fall across anyone's face when possible!
Although I want you to choose the photos you can't live without - here is a sample of image selection:
Preparation: 8-10 photos
(more if you've had a first look)
Ceremony: 10-15 images
Portraits: 10-15 images
(family, bridal party & couple)
Reception: 15-20 images
During the design process I may choose some "filler" images to best complete the layouts. While proofing you may choose to either keep them, swap them for others from your gallery, or eliminate them completely.
