the wedding album
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.
These 10x10” albums feature your photos mounted flush to 1/16” boards offering a solid feel & a high-end look. Panoramic spreads ensure that we can take advantage of the entire page & spread photos across the binding without gaps. The hardest part you have to do is pick out the photos! I take care of the designing.
parent albums are available
An almost identical version of your album can be purchased for a fraction of the cost, making it the perfect gift for your parents or grandparents! A Parent Album is basically a simplified version of your album. All photo & cover choices & the layout must remain the same & must be ordered at the same time to qualify. Parent Albums cannot be ordered separately.
design & ordering process
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., girls getting ready, 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 are emailed to you in PDF form for your approval. You are encouraged to review each mock-up & make a list of desired changes (switch out photos, rearrange layouts, etc.). Please email me with any desired changes & they 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 2 free mock-ups after the initial mock-up, a total of 3 mock-ups. Additional mock-ups are $100 each.
If we are still in the design process of your album, you can add a Parent Album at any time. However, Parent Albums cannot be added AFTER your main album has already been submitted to print. They must be submitted at the same time.
The photo & cover choices & the layout for your Parent Album cannot be changed from your main album choices. They must be identical to qualify. Parent Albums cannot be ordered separately.
paper & finishes
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.
pages & sides
The number of pages & sides will affect how many photos your album can hold. Each album comes with at least 10 spreads (20 sides) but more pages can be added.
Parent Albums will inherit page number & aspect ratio as the original album. If your album was a 10x10", you have the choice of getting either a 10x10" or 8x8" Parent Album. Ask me for 8x8” Parent Album pricing.
Album production is handled by Miller's Professional Imaging, the largest professional lab organization in the United States. They have developed a reputation for having the highest quality products, customer service, & technologies in the industry.
payment terms & conditions
Albums must be paid in full before design process & production can begin.
Once the design process has begun & you have received your initial mock-up but nothing has been submitted to print, half of your album cost can be refunded. Once the design has been submitted for print, the order is complete & cannot be cancelled.
turnaround & shipping
Once the album is approved, production time is 2–5 days. Each album is shipped to me first for inspection, then mailed to you. Shipping is already included in the cost.
Because of the collaborative & creative nature of albums, I cannot guarantee any range of dates to expect the finished product. During seasonal peak months, the design process may be slower.
If you are unsatisfied with your product because of manufacturing error, simply send the product to the lab with all appropriate lab paperwork within 30 days indicating the reason for return & they will quickly get a new product to you at no cost. This does not apply to dissatisfaction with photograph choices or page layouts. If you wish to make modifications to the product, a new order must be submitted at your cost. Please contact me for the appropriate paperwork.
If your album was damaged during shipping, notify me & the courier immediately. Return damaged products, packing material, & paperwork to the lab within 10 days so they can replace your product. Damage claims will be filed by Miller's. Please contact me for the appropriate paperwork.
