A Word About Wedding Albums

Because we are such big believers in the value and importance of a high quality wedding album, we’ve created two different options that will hopefully fit each client’s individual needs.

The first option is the Basic Album, which is included in Package 2.  Basic Albums contain press-style paper mounted to thin archival boards and bound in a black leatherette cover with a 3×3 inset cover image. Basic Albums are 8×8 inches square but can be upgraded to 10×10 for an additional fee.

The Basic Album was created for clients who want something simple, classic, and easy to order.  It includes 70 pages, one image per page.  Each image is centered on the page in a “museum-style” format, with white space around the image for a classic, art-book aesthetic.  The design process is as easy as it gets – simply choose your 70 favorite images and we’ll do the rest.  With no revisions necessary, these albums ship the fastest, usually arriving within 1-2 months from the image selection.  The Basic Album is $1700 USD, with a 10×10 upgrade option for an additional $300 USD, and is included in Package 2.  Here is an example of the Basic Album design style:

The second type of album is the Bespoke Album.  This album line is 11 inches by 14 inches, the largest album size we offer. Bespoke Albums contain Kodak Professional Endura photographic paper mounted to thick archival boards and bound in genuine Italian leather (color of your choice) with your favorite image printed onto a metallic plate and embedded into the cover, as well as your names foil embossed onto the spine.  This album is the best of the best, and includes all the upgrades and customization options so you can get your album exactly the way you want it, at the size you want it, without worrying about paying any additional fees.

The Bespoke Album design is “collage style,” which includes 200-250 images, 4-5 images per page, custom arranged and designed to tell the story of your wedding. To simplify the process for you, we will select the images for the first draft based on the photos that we consider the very best at documenting and highlighting your day. From there, you have two rounds of unlimited revisions to customize your design. The Bespoke Album is the highest quality, completely handmade in the USA, and guaranteed against defects. This is an heirloom-quality album, meant to last for generations and withstand regular use and aging. Every customization option and upgrade has been included, so you have literally thousands of options to make your album unique.  The Bespoke Album is $3500 USD, and is included in Packages 3 and 4.  Here is an example of the Bespoke Album design style:

All of our albums are made entirely by hand by bookmaking craftsmen in the USA, using top of the line leathers and fabrics, binding agents, papers, and professional photographic printers.  The printers are calibrated to our own computers, ensuring a perfect color match and crisp, vivid images.  Our albums are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and are built to last through years of flipping through your photo story over and over again.

Although the two types of albums we offer are very different, they both tell the story of your wedding day in their own beautiful way.   Our aim in providing two different types of albums is to create two classic, easy-to-design, no-hidden-cost album options at two price points.  Regardless of which album you choose, you won’t be pressured into paying extra fees for additional pages, extra images, upgraded cover materials, name embossing, or anything else.  These albums also simplify the design process so the one and only consideration you have to make when designing your album is which images mean the most to you.

If you have any questions about our album lines or the design process, don’t hesitate to ask!
