I am so glad you are interested in designing a Wedding Album! It is the perfect way to remember your beautiful day. With this album, your children & grandchildren will be able to look back through the events of your big day with ease, laughing about how weird everyone dressed back in the day.


Signature Album

The Signature Album is one album with plenty of options to ensure that you get exactly what you want, something unique. Featuring two different thicknesses, your photos are mounted flush to boards; the thick board is 1/16” thick, offering a solid feel & a high-end look, while the thin board is 1/32,” offering a streamlined, modern look.

paper & finishes

e-surface

Photographs are printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional Paper Super Type PD (Traditional E-Surface Paper) which is the most popular paper used by professional photographers. Pages are truly flush mount with prints extending across the two-page spread (no space at the spine.)

  • Boasts accurate color, realistic saturation, excellent natural flesh reproduction, & great intensity, & offers brighter blues, cyans, purples, & reds.
  • Standard Archival Value of 100 years in home display; 200 years in dark storage.

Pages are given an eco-friendly, non-flammable lustre coating which provides for superior protection against fingerprints & UV exposure, while also visibly enhancing the look of your print.

Deep matte

Fuji Crystal Archive Deep Matte paper is the premier matte paper used by professional photographers. This paper is available for an additional charge. {A note from Emily: This paper is ah-mazing! It's such a different feel than you may expect with an album, & this description just doesn't do it justice. I showed it to a friend & she screamed, "This is PAPER?!"}

  • Deep matte, lustreless surface creates tremendous visual impact.
  • Produces rich color with pure whites and sharp text quality.
  • Standard Archival Value of 100 years in home display; 200 years in dark storage.

Pages & sides

The number of pages & sides will affect how many photos your album will have. Since each album is custom designed, you can choose to have one or multiple photos per page. (10/20 = 10 pages, 20 sides front & back.) Each album has three spread options. Talk to me if you want even more pages!

corners & edge gilding

standard leather

The Standard leather line is made of genuine Italian full grain leather. These moisture resistant leathers age beautifully with a rich patina.

pearlescent leather

distressed leather covers

The Distressed leather line is made of genuine Italian full grain leathers & features unique variations & natural markings. Please note: Distressed leathers are made to show the natural wear & tear caused from daily use. Due to the nature of this material, Distressed leather covers may vary in texture & level of distress.

METALLIC LEATHER

LINEN COVERS

The Linen line is made of a beautiful textile blend & features an assortment of colors to highlight your imagery. Please note: Due to the nature of this material, linen covers may vary in texture & color.

CUSTOM IMAGE

Customize the cover of your Signature Album with any photo/design. Printed on one of five finishes, photos wrap around the entire cover of your album. If selecting Canvas, your image is printed on canvas substrate with a coat of lamination for protection. Glossy covers are printed on E-Surface photographic paper with a fine coat of high gloss lamination. The Metallic substrate is printed photographic paper with high gloss, giving off a metallic shine. Matte Metallic covers are printed on Metallic photographic paper with a coat of matte lamination. Satin covers are made of E-Surface photographic paper with a fine coat of matte lamination, for a softer fine art feel. (Click the thumbnails below to better view the finishes.)

DESIGN & ORDERING PROCESS

photographs

Depending on the album size, number of pages, & page layouts, the number of photos each album can hold will vary significantly. I recommend thinking of each page or spread as a different subject (i.e., ceremony, cake cutting, first dance.) On average, I like to use 5–10 photos a spread, making sure to keep a good balance of large & small photos. I will do my best to incorporate as many of your favorite photo choices as possible.

mock-ups

After receiving the completed Design Order Form & a deposit is paid, I will begin designing the initial mock-up which will be emailed to you in PDF form for your approval. You are encouraged to review each mock-up & make desired changes (switch out photos, rearrange layouts, etc.). Please email me with any desired changes that will be taken into consideration. I will then begin work on the next mock-up. This process will continue until you are satisfied with all photos & page layouts. Album prices include 3 free mock-ups after the initial mock-up, a total of 4 mock-ups. Additional mock-ups are $75 each.
