Wedding Album Suggestions?
I’m talking mostly to those wed recently enough to have digital photos, and those who are control freaks enough to have demanded digital rights to all photos. And also, maybe those who were too cheap to buy the $999 professional album from your photographer. Or any prints at all, actually.
Because that’s me.
I’m looking at SmileBooks, they print the photo books on photo paper which turns out really nice. I used Blurb for a photo guestbook (which turned out well), and I designed a nice boudoir album with SmileBooks for T. I prefer the paper of the SmileBooks, but it is more expensive.
But I have 900+ wedding photos, and I’ve been reluctant to invest the time putting together the album. We’re considering using the design service. It is a bit less than $1/page, plus for $10 they’ll do the work of sorting through the photos and picking the best ones. There is no risk – they will fix it until I love it.
I think I’d probably do a better job myself, if only because I could spend an infinite amount of time on it and I know exactly what we want. But the boudoir book probably took 5 hours or so, and it only had 50 pictures. So… yikes! I’m kind of on a tight schedule since these would make wonderful Christmas gifts for parents! I could do it… but is that how I want to spend my weekends?
Do you have any recommendations for printing or designing a modern wedding album? If you bought yours from the photographer, was it worth it?
