I LOVE the layout, it looks so professional like albums the photographer would make, but everything is so much better because you've personalized it. You seriously need to flip your talents into a career, or at least a sideline gig, you're stuff always looks so nice!

And, I echo the sentiment that looking at beautiful pictures never gets tiring, it just makes me more excited about my own wedding day!! elefant.gif
Thanks! I used Lumapix fotofusion. You can get a free trial on their website (not for macs though).

I was really surprised how fast I got it together. It usually takes me much longer to make a book. I think I spent about 3 hours on it last night. The final versions will take much longer, especially the one I make for us to keep.

just a PG-13 version :) Our book will probably have 40 pages. There are so many great pictures I had to leave out of this book. I can't believe how many "favorites" I have.

I had the quotes ready to go & a layout in mind. I was sketching it out on the flight home. The first photobook I made in lumapix took me about 20 hours. It's getting a lot easier. I also did so many repeptitive layouts so i was able to just drag & drop in the new pictures. I plan on spicing things up for v2.0

I still need to post my review and pictures! I have no idea where you find the time. On a side note, be happy you are having a casual AHR. Mine has turned into a BFW as Abbie would say.

You photos are stunning and I won't ever get tired of looking at them. I love the underwater TTD! Kristie - great job!

I like the use of the quotes and lyrics. I might have to steal that idea!
steal away. I got the inspiration from another BDW bride. Those were the songs we had playing after the ceremony when we were toasting. They were still on while mike & i were taking pictures near the site.

the rest of the text is from our ceremony. I need to add our vows. I just don't have them typed up. And maybe a few quotes.

Awesome job.

 

So with lumapix is it just a drag and drop your photos in (like my publisher?) or do you completely create your own page? How easy is it to do the superimposed photo (big photo in the background with a few photos on top)? Also do you order the book from them, if not, who?

 

I used my publisher for our families' books but I still haven't started on our book because I want to customize the pages more than I was able to with my publisher, and I figure it will take me forever. But you have given me hope!

 

I LOVE the use of all the quotes and wording from your ceremony. It adds SO SO much. I was just going to put our vows and nothing else, because normally I find quote overload (i.e. using more than one or two quotes) to be cheasy, but I love how you used the songs from your wedding day. I'm gonna steal the "Celebrate we will becuase Life is short but sweet for certain" quote because it's so perfect and we are big DMB fans. Other than that I'll look at our wedding day songs and see what else I can pull out.

 

THANKS for the inspiration!!!

lumapix is only for making the pages. then you export them as jpgs & upload them to any website. I'm uploading my families into shutterfly or snapfish. i have a bunch of free book codes. for my book i might do asuka books or something a little nicer.

i do find it really hard to find quotes that suite me. but, there are so many song lyrics that really do reflect my feelings.

lumapix is so easy once you get the hang of it. you should download the free trial. sarah made a tutorial thread. you just drag & drop in your pictures & then size them how you want. it's very easy to put the big picture in the back. you just say "set as canvas background." Now that I've worked with lumapix, I can not stand being stuck with templates.

You can get by with the basic $40 version for most stuff. You just cant export over 2000 pixels for your biggest side. But, I even made a 12x12 book using the basic version & just kept the resolution lower than ideal. It still looked very nice.

I went ahead & paid the extra to upgrade to the next version because I use the program so much.

hope that made sense. it is the kind of program you can just pick up & play with and learn as you go.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
